Melbourne Cup.

Do you watch or bet on it? Years ago I liked it and bet on it. however for the last few years I have not watched as I have been sickened by the whipping of the horses. Some Jockeys get fined for overuse of their whip. So many horses put down because of injury, that it is disturbing. I know that horses love racing but this race seems to push many horses beyond their limits. What are your views on the Melbourne Cup? Like/Hate? Think it is cruel or not cruel? I cringe when I see the drunk people in the papers at the end of the Cup. Love to see your opinions on the Melbourne Cup.Not just the racing but all of it.

Based on a vice.... gambling.
Cruel to horses ...broken legs and run to death.
Horses who don't win end up down a chute cruelly treated and killed fir dogs meat.
My sin and daughter in law went 5 years ago and were disgusted seeing drunken girls standing there in their dresses peeing themselves in public, and the rubbish left on the grounds.
I suppose what else can you expect, from people on the loose. Melbourne cup organizers wouldn't care ... it's a money making exercise, based on cruelty to animals, greed and drunkenness and gambling.
We could easily do without it.

Sometimes I pick a name I like and have a small bet, last year my horse won. I can't bear to see horses injures themselves though and this is such a long race that it always seems to happen. I certainly won't watch jumps races at all. I really have mixed feelings as I know the horses like to race. Reply

Its a dishonest behind the scenes mafia type industry..
Means very little to me. I used to go in the sweep at work but thats about it.
Somehow the only sport that never was required to stop all through the pandemic. Nothing beats betting and generating losers.

Not anymore, during covid the only way to bet is online. And for an online betting account to remain current they need license ID's etc. And I couldnt be f**ked jumping through all their hoops just to put on a bet and just dont do it now Reply
