Melbourne And Its World Renowned Cup

Melbourne Cup is one of the famous turf races in the world, held at the Flemington Racecourses in Melbourne, Australia. It is a race for the thoroughbreds aged three and above which are expected to cover a distance of about 3,200mts. It is also one of the richest `two-mile` handicap turf races in the world. It all started in the year 1861 by Mr. Fredrick Standish. He came out with the idea of holding a race for horses and named it the Melbourne Cup. The first champion to ever hold high the cup was Archer, the stallion with his rider.
