The sound of hooves echoes upon the nation and anticipation rifles through the crowds.
Clients at Arcare North Shore chatter excitedly about Australia’s biggest horse-racing event!
Talk of the sweep fills the halls whilst the women show off their most beautiful fascinators and dresses.
“I’ve never seen such beautiful fascinators before! Really living up to the 5 Star!” Olive said.
The recent activities leading up the Melbourne Cup only highlighted the excitement for the race that stops the nation.
The clients were all looking forward to the Melbourne Cup event!
The preparation also sparked many different conversations and memories for them.
The day was filled with laughter, the sound of champagne bottles popping, the punters’ shouts of joy and eagerness of holding the winning ticket.
It was ‘Vow and Declare’ who took out the winning prize of the 2019 Melbourne Cup, much to the delight of our major winners Jack Connolly and Lisa, one of our beloved Registered Nurses.
Arcare North Shore’s Melbourne Cup Day is proof that you do not have to go to the racetrack to participate in the culture and energy of the Melbourne Cup.
You can experience it all from the comfort of your own suite and still contribute to the excitement and join in the fun!
