Also known as the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup is Australian's major racing event of the year. The 3,200 metre race is for horses aged three years and upwards. It is held annually at the Flemington Race Course during the Victorian Spring Racing Carnival on the first Tuesday in November which falls on 6th November 2012 this year.
The famous finish of 2011 saw French horse Dunaden win the race in one of the closest finishes in history, by beating the English horse Red Cadeux by centimetres.
