The Emirates Melbourne Cup

Australians are very familiar with Flemington’s big day every year on the first Tuesday of November, when they stop to acknowledge their favourite horse race, The Emirates Melbourne Cup.

People may not be aware that this magnificent event, which is now more than a one hundred and fifty (150) year old tradition, beginning in 1861, was run on a Thursday until 1875.  Saturday was also selected as Melbourne Cup Day in the three consecutive years of 1942, 1943 and 1944, during World War II.

Every year its popularity is sustained, as enthusiastic people throughout this nation acknowledge the majestic efforts of the thoroughbred horses and the colourful vision of the gathering crowds that represent all aspects of society and community. The enthusiasm continues throughout the lead-up to the race, as everyone takes their own chance to ‘pick-the-winner’.

Hardy Brothers proudly crafted the solid gold Melbourne Cup between 1981 and 2015.
