Melbourne Cup 2012

Photo by Jason South
The first Tuesday in November for Melbourne means it's Melbourne Cup Day (and a public holiday).  The rain managed to hold off for the race that stops the nation, and the winner of this year's Cup was Green Moon, with Fiorente finishing second and Jakkalberry third.  Favorites such as Americain and Dunaden did not do as well as expected.  The Cup trophy was presented by the Duchess of Cornwall, while Prince Charles presented the trophy to the winner of the Diamond Jubilee Plate.  The royals added a bit of class to the day, and are off to Adelaide for the next stop of their Australian visit.
