The Melbourne Cup makes Mick broke

I always do it. I always spend too much money on the Melbourne Cup, and almost always win nothing back. But it's the great Aussie tradition isn't it? I don't bet on stuff during the year usually. I don't spend too much money on the pokies, so why not a flutter on the Big Race? Anyway, here's my bets for the race so far today. 3 Trifectas: 1st Trifecta: - (The one without the Diva in it) Vinnie Row Portland Singa Leica Falcon 2nd Trifecta: (The one that I hope wins, cause it'll pay good) Makybe Diva Umbula Mr Celebrity 3rd Trifecta: (The one with the favourites in it) Makybe Diva Railings Leica Falcon I will probably do more bets and sweeps and then more bets. I just can't help myself... UPDATE: I did end up putting $5 on the nose on Makybe Diva, Eye Popper, Umbula and Leica Falcon. I won $22, but outlayed about $45 all up, so once again I lose. Oh well. There's always next year.... ...or today. I hear they run horses every day...
