It's the race that stops a nation, and a public holiday for those of us who live in Melbourne. Delta Blues upset the favorites Tawqeet, Yeats, and Pop Rock to win this year's race. It was a one-two finish for Japan as Pop Rock came in second. The weather today has been overcast and cool, so many of those fashions on the field had to be covered up with jackets and hats held on heads tightly to keep them from blowing away.
