Next Tuesday November 2, the 2010 Melbourne Cup takes centre stage as a field of the finest stayers take to the track at Flemington to contest the 150th anniversary of the world’s richest handicap.
As well as a bumper race programme, another highly anticipated feature of Melbourne Cup Day this year is the calling and animation of the Greatest Cup Never Run.
Compiled by Racing Victoria’s Chief Handicapper Greg Carpenter, the Greatest Cup Never Run features a 24-horse field of the greatest Melbourne Cup winners throughout history.
