"The race that stops a nation™"

The $6.175 million Emirates Melbourne Cup is a truly spectacular event and the focal point of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. While most of Australia stops to watch or listen to the race, there’s nothing like being there amongst the 100,000 plus crowd to experience this truly unique event.

It is hard to convey the sheer scale of Emirates Melbourne Cup Day to someone who has not witnessed it before. It is an exciting and exhilarating event where you can experience the pulse of Australia in just one day.

The 3200m race is run at 3pm on the first Tuesday of November and is the richest prize in Australian sport.

Crafted by Hardy Brothers Jewellers, the 2012 Emirates Melbourne Cup trophy is valued at $175,000 and is created from 2,340 grams of solid 18ct gold which takes more than 250 man hours to produce.

The Emirates Melbourne Cup has gained a reputation for fashion with a penchant for drama. It is the day to make your strongest fashion statement with an exotic or outrageous ensemble - hats are essential and so is a yellow rose in the lapel.
