Melbourne Cup 2013 Information
The Melbourne Cup is Australia’s major thoroughbred horse race. Known as “the race that stops a nation”, it is a 3,200 metre race for 3-year-olds and over. It is the richest “2-mile” handicap in the world, and one of the richest turf races. Ran at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria, the event starts at 3pm (daylight saving time) on the first Tuesday in November.
The race has been held since 1861 and was originally held over two miles (about 3,218 metres) but following preparation for Australia’s adoption of the metric system in the 1970s, the current race distance of 3,200 metres was established in 1972. This reduced the distance by 18.688 metres (61.31 ft), and Rain Lover’s 1968 race record of 3min.19.1sec was accordingly adjusted to 3min.17.9sec.
