The SHOCKING Thing You Never Knew About The Melbourne Cup
If you’re gearing up for a BIG Melbourne Cup in Sydney, no doubt you’re not even a patch of the excitement that Melburnians are feeling.
I mean, the lucky sods get a whole day off in honour of the race that stops the nation, Sydney gets a 20-minute break to place a bet and catch the end of the race.
However, one thing that may damage the egos of Melburnians has just come to light; and I must warn you - it’s quite shocking.
The Melbourne Cup trophy - is actually made in Sydney.
Unfortunately for our Melbourne friends, a video from 7 News Sydney shows that their coveted trophy is a product of Sydney greatness, so I guess they’ve got us to thank, right?
