And the Melbourne Cup Winner is… Shocking!
It looks like the horse that Kevin Rudd backed won the Melbourne Cup at Flemington today. Congratulations!
Seriously, when I wrote this article I had absolutely no idea who would win (The article is now updated and includes the winner). I am an internet marketer and this is an experiment for my coaching students to see how many people will visit this blog by typing in Melbourne Cup Winner into Google immediately after the big race. So really this is simply to prove to my students in The Internet Marketing Forum what they can achieve in a very short time.
So don’t take this too seriously. Here we go. I have no idea about horses, races or betting. Wish me luck 😉
The Race That Stops A Nation
The Melbourne Cup is also known as The Race That Stops A Nation. The race is for three-year-olds (and over) and is held over a distance of 3,200 metres. It is known as the most prestigious Two Mile Handicap in the world. Expect the nation of Australia to stand still at 4 pm on the first Tuesday in November by the race held on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne.
Man, I’m running out of knowledge about horses… A top spot on Google would be nice by now. Enough chat, back to the topic 😀

The Melbourne Cup Winner will be announced here just after the race. Meanwhile, here is a list of the past 8 Melbourne Cup Winners and if the list bores you, there is a picture of a filly on the right:

Will Bart Cummings Get A Clean Sweep?
81 year old, Bart Cummings has already captured the Caulfield Cup and the Cox Plate this year. If he wins on the first Tuesday of November, he will have a cool trifecta in 2009 and also his 13th Melbourne Cup. On that basis, I wish Bart Cummings the best of luck!
I hope you had a win…
Happy day at the races
