Two years in a row

Melbourne Cup

Well this makes two years in a row that I've won something in the office sweeps for the Melbourne Cup. Last year I drew Makybe Diva and won the sweep; this year I drew Vinnie Row and came second (to Makybe Diva - the first mare ever to win the Melbourne Cup two years in a row).

Onya Vinnie Row :)

It then took me a good half an hour to find a website that listed the complete race results and not just the top three. Very frustrating if you're trying to find the last place getter for the booby prize!

How much did you win?

I had the exact same problem trying to find the last horse! I gave up cause I couldn't find it though I notice finally today's SMH has the complete listing.

I won $16. But spent $9 getting into sweeps, so came out $7 in front :)
