Oh frabjus day! Calloo callay, he chortled in his joy!
Lewis Carrol was so right about so much.
Those words summed up my feelings as “”Americain” whizzed past “So You Think” to claim the Melbourne Cup.
For only the second time I had won the Cup, well been astute enough to put $5 each way on the winning horse.
Not a huge win, but a win nonetheless.
My only claim to insight into the equine world is this: if it’s raining, go with a european horse.
It works about every 10 years !
Making my joy even greater was the sight of so many sludes & slappers in their finery at numerous tram stops awaiting their transport to Flemington.
I will not be unkind, but suffice it to say that some people’s idea of elegance are not mine !
My winnings will NOT be spent on a pair of pointy shoes.
