Enjoying Cup Day

There were many events on around the region for Melbourne Cup Day. 

The Soldiers Club hosted a luncheon and model show aimed at raising money for FARA, the Bowling Club held its annual Yass Hospital Auxillary Luncheon and the Bowning Hotel also welcomed guests for a special event.

But, in the end, it was Green Moon that stole the show winning by one and a half lengths to Fiorente. Jackalberry was an unlikely third.
