Melbourne Cup 2022

Melbourne Cup is a keenly competing horse race and was found in 1861 Melbourne, Australia. The race covers 3200 meters and was introduced by Victoria Racing Club on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. It is one of the richest turf races in the world. The event begins at 3:00pm on the first Tuesday of November and locally, it is called “the race that stops the nation”. The first race was contested by seventeen horses. The horses are assigned different weights to carry to show their ability levels in a process called handicap. In some ways, horses are raced purposely for sports. The gambling associated with horse racing and its economic importance attracted the attention of the general public. As in 2019, it generated a worldwide market worth around US $115 billion
