One of the most grueling horse races in existence, the Melbourne Cup limits the number of horses that will be included in the race and they are chosen based on their recent performances, the amount of prize money that they have recently taken in and their handicap weight. There are races that provide exemption from elimination to the winning horses, and some of these bring foreign horses to Flemington every year. Although the Melbourne Cup 2012 Field will not be announced until the Saturday before the big race, you can be certain that the races will put their endurance to the test in the longest horse race in Australia.
Flemington Racecourse is home to the Melbourne Cup and has been around since 1840. Although it was recently replaced for the first time, there have been horse races at this course since the year it opened. When it is not being used for horse races, it is also home to a training center that is used by the best horse trainers in the world. The Flemington Racecourse provides a pear shaped track that totals a circumference of over 2,300 meters. Located in Melbourne, Australia, there are plenty of things to do both before and after race day so that you can take full advantage of your time at the track.
Melbourne has many beautiful hotels and restaurants that can keep you well fed and rested during your stay, and when you are not betting at the track there are plenty to keep you busy away from the course as well. Although most celebrations occur in the areas in the direct vicinity of the racetrack, there are celebrations all over the country to celebrate the biggest horse race in the history of Melbourne. For those that wish to just experience the city of Melbourne once the race is over, there is sure to be some style to fit your preference. Although there may not be as much natural beauty as you might find somewhere else, you can definitely feel the European touch that has been brought to Australia.
The 2012 Melbourne Cup is sure to draw just as many people as those in years past, and there is no doubt that even a beginner will have the time of their life. As long as you remember to dress to impress with the latest in fashion and carefully make your bets on the horses that are chosen for the final field, not only can you come home the winner of a great experience, but also the winner of a lot of cash as well. The Melbourne Cup is one of the richest horse races in the world, and definitely the richest in Australia, and can make your pockets a little deeper with careful consideration of the odds at hand.
For those that plan on attending the Melbourne Cup 2012, be sure to book your room reservations in advance and purchase your tickets well before you get there, because this is one horse race that leaves very few seats unfilled. There are many celebrations to join in while you are there, and the carnival-like atmosphere that you experience can be just as much fun as the Melbourne Cup races themselves. This years Melbourne Cup starts at 300 pm local time, but you can arrive early and stay late for the races that come before and after for even better chances of bringing home a little extra from your betting. Not everyone gets lucky, but who knows? Maybe this year it can be you that picks the winning horse.
