Dave with the Cup

Spring's here... and that means Spring Racing is just around the corner.

To get us all into the mood, we arranged for Joe McGrath of the VRC to drop by with a very special guest - the Melbourne Cup!

The trophy has come a long way since the inaugural event in 1861, when the winner was presented with a gold watch. 

Today, the golden prize is worth $175,000 and musn't be touched by human hands until it is presented to the winner - lucky Joe brought a spare pair of those white gloves in for Dave.
