melbourne cup 2009

Following our family tradition, we each choose a horse based entirely on it’s name and the relevance to our lives. This year I’ve chosen “Viewed” for myself and “Spin Around” for Poppy. GranJan chose “Daffodil” and Yogi has decided on “Leica Ding”. We each put in $5 and the closest to the line wins the pot. We’ll have dinner together in Cautley Street after watching the race. I remember in 2006 Poppy took her first steps during the running of the Melbourne Cup as Yogi and I watched!

Results:
7th VIEWED
11th DAFFODIL
14th LEICA DING
20th SPIN AROUND
