Welcome to the most official ‘unofficial Melbourne Cup update’. Join us as we take a look at the best and worst moments from the 2016 Emiratz Melbourne Cup and discover how truly feral and bogan-esque we Aussies really are.
But before we dive head first into the cesspit that is the Melbourne Cup aftermath let’s take a look at the other fun side of the Cup – the biggest winners and luckiest gamblers who enjoyed the biggest financial rewards on that first Tuesday in November. Lucky Punts!
