Adelaide Cup

In my little “town” (it’s South Australia main city) today is “Adelaide Cup” day. To break it down, instead of breaking it down into tinier stories. It’s a Public Holiday in South Australia (YAY) but it’s also the day in South Australia where our fanciest of the fanciest and the richest of the richest come out and take a bet on some horses.

The Adelaide Cup always takes place on the second Monday in March and it’s first run was in 1864. The first race usually takes places around lunch time and then continues at roughly 40 minute intervals for the rest of the afternoon/day.

Now this day does cause a lot of controversy, as you can probably imagine. That constant battle between “making” horses run and what can sometimes happen after the races. Also that eternal battle of do the horses really want to race? It’s also causes that big controversy of people needing to shop for everything in the whole supermarket, just in case…just in case, on that one public holiday day they run out of…stuff,lol

So readers, what do you think of racing? Horse racing or otherwise? Personally I am enthralled by car-racing, even though I don’t drive!

*If you do place a bet today, do so, responsibly*.
