Thanks to everyone who attended The Melbourne Cup Calcutta at The Rising Sun Hotel on Melbourne Cup eve. Congratulations go to David Kemp who purchased Almandin after some hotly contested bidding. The overall pool of nearly $10000 dollars meant Dave received a handsome return on his investment. Well done to all winners on the night.  Special thanks to Jimmy Buckley who had the crowd in stitches throughout the night and also Micky McGowan from RSN who provided great insight into the horses.
