The Melbourne Cup: “The Race That Stops a Nation”.

The Melbourne Cub is the most important horse race that is held in Australia. It is also a major cultural festival that takes place every year on November 2. Once I ordered a paper at an essay writing company about this event and I was so interested in it. So, I began to search for the information concerning it and I have found out that...

This horse race has got the name “the race that stopped a nation”. The reason is that it is the most watchable show broadcasted in Australia, as well as overseas. It was inaugurated in 1961 and since then, it gained a great popularity. Actually, it is held the last day of the Victoria Spring Racing Carnival. On this carnival attracts the spectators from all over the world. It lasts for 50 days.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival of this year promises to be the most spectacular show as it will be the 150th anniversary of the Cub. It will last for one week and will be filled with various cultural and sport events, including thoroughbred horse racing .

It will start on the 30th of October with the AAMI Victoria Derby Day. During this day, one will be able to visit the best horseracing in the world.

Actually, writing essay papers could be dedicated to this carnival and Cub. Did you know that it is the most prestigious handicap in the whole world? Only the best horses are allowed to race in two-mile horseracing. It is really worth seeing.
