On the Phar Lap – Melbourne Cup Day in Bali

It's Melbourne Cup Race Day at Hard Rock Hotel Bali's Center Stage on Tuesday, November 1, 2005.

If the truth be told, the first Tuesday in the month of November each year should be a public holiday in Australia. On that day, that nation comes to a virtual standstill: offices empty, pubs fill, and people whose otherwise strict Methodist upbringing precludes "betting" manage to make a punt on the horses.

It's Melbourne Cup Day!

An annual ritual held each year since it was first run at Flemington Race Course in Melbourne in 1861, "Cup Day" marks the zenith of the Spring Racing Carnival. Bolstered by copious quantities of champagne, canapés and the world's most outrageous display of silly hats - you have to be careful not to be distracted away from the main event – the 3,200 meter handicapped horse race with prize monies exceeding AUS$ 5 million.

Horse racing aficionados and Australians visiting Bali on November 1st but not wishing to miss out on the excitement of this year's running of the Melbourne Cup are encouraged to bring a silly hat to the Hard Rock Hotel's Center Stage Bar on Tuesday, November 1, 2005, to view a live broadcast of the 144th running of the race.

All the pre-race pageantry and the actual race will be broadcast live to the Bar's "Big Screen" starting from 12 noon, local time in Bali. Pies, puffs, ice-cold beer and, of course, champagne will all be on offer from the bar.
