Swimmers in the green


Horse 20, Race 7, 3:00pm, Flemington

It’s Melbourne Cup day and we’ve got a horse running…BONDI BEACH. It’s kinda funny that the horse is from Ireland, where many Bondi beach summer patrons come from. I wonder if our horse took a dip this morning…at Bondi…in his jeans after a few largers wearing a soccer jersey? Maybe not today. As it was one of the most uninspiring days down there at sunrise. Rain, 1ft, onshore. No good.

Bondi Beach is running odds of 23 to 1. So if you put $10,000 onĀ it you’ll be rich and can retire on your own island in the Mentawais next week. With me? I hear it’s the youngest horse in the race, a vain thing, eats organic feed, does a bit of Vinyasa yoga, wears tight jeans and has a overgrown beard….oh and unlikely to win – but I’ll back it. How could we not…wearing the name of our beloved patch of sand.

Here’s 10 photos of Bondi to inspire your betting today. Good luck. Drop any winnings off to the gallery.
