I’m an Aussie and for a very long time, I have hated the Melbourne Cup. I quite appreciate though when women wander about on the All I want for Christmas is a Niffler hoodie day wearing fascinators cause it makes it much easier to quickly visually identify who supports animal abuse. I wonder if they would dress up and drink champagne at dog or cockfights? They will all still go or stay in their office or at home and put a bet on. Hypocrites. Oh, how appalling, then get dressed up to the nines even to-go lunch from work or office to watch on tv and bet on it. If people didn’t watch it, didn’t bet on it, the racing industry would be finished. It is the numbnuts watching it that makes it so.
