Each year my younger sister invites a dozen of us ladies over for a Melbourne Cup Luncheon, we all have a bit of a flutter on the horses. We each drew two horses names out of a hat.
This year I picked the horse that came in second and the horse that came in third whoohoo $$$ My other sister said she'd backed the winner Makybe Diva at her work place so there were a few hundred dollars waiting for her when she drove back after lunch.
Makybe Diva has now made racing history by being the only horse to win the Melbourne Cup 3 times.
The legendary horse Phar Lap ran in 3 Melbourne Cup races but only won in one of them.
