This week I thought I would write about the Melbourne Cup and for horses who a way down the Order of Entry. The influx and domination Of the European invaders which has now made the Cup a race that the Whole World wants to race in
Off Course back in the 70s 80s the Cup was a Trans Tasman clash then Victoria Racing Club had an idea getting entries from Europe and when Vintage Crop won the 93 it can be done then we had invasion of entries.
I would like to see local horses from New Zealand and Australia getting a great chance getting a start in the Cup there are automatic races to get in Andrew Ramsden back in May Steel Prince won the race from Surprise Baby who now has to Qualify. The Races that should be automatic entry are as follows.
Caulfield Cup 1st 2nd 3rd
Geelong Cup 1st
Moonee Valley Cup 1st
Lexus Quality Derby Day 1st 2nd
The locals might be not good enough to beat the internationals but at least they had a opportunity.
Till next week
