Melbourne Cup Calcutta

Our second meeting of October was moved so that our annual Melbourne Cup Calcutta could be held on the eve of the big day. There was some lively bidding with visitor Mike securing each of the four top favourites for an outlay of $331 with Dunaden taking out the race giving Mike a return of $415 so he came out in front. After Andrew read some poor form Warren snapped up second placed Red Cadeaux for just $10 receiving $208. Peter proved everyone wrong when he paid $50 for Lucas Cranach which came in third giving the Greg/Peter syndicate some payout of $104. After complaining all evening Noel finally got a horse and doubled his outlay when it was placed last $52. This is a great fundraiser for our club which takes 25% of the pool before divvying up the prize money.
