It’s coming to that time of the year again and HorseRacing.com.au has created an infographic pointing out some interesting statistics about the Melbourne Cup.
For example, did you know that horses whose name that start with I, Q, U, X or Y have never, ever won the Melbourne Cup! Or, what about the most successful winning silk colours? I would bet that you don’t know what they are!
Have a read, take some notes leading up to the big day – and PLEASE SHARE generously!
