The 2012 Melbourne Cup is now less than 24 hours away but don’t worry there is still time to get involved in Australia’s biggest race.
One great way to get a group involved is a Melbourne Cup sweep, where a group of people, often from an office, all pool their money and purchase a ticket each which represents one of the 24 horses in the 2012 Melbourne Cup field.
The great thing about a Melbourne Cup sweep is it means everyone is involved at an equal level with no need to study the form of the horses.
It’s a great way to get everyone from the novice punter to the seasoned racing fan excited about the Melbourne Cup.
You can calculate the prize pool any way you like, whether you want all of the pool to go to the winner or to be split among the top three placegetters.
