Tomorrow is Melbourne Cup day so there was a parade in the city today to showcase some racing names. I went just to have a look because I haven't actually been to any of the parades that happen for all the various reasons (e.g. Anzac Day, AFL Grand Final, Moomba, Police Blue Ribbon, Olympians homecoming...there seems to be a lot) . It was also a relatively quiet day at work since half the people weren't there as tomorrow is a holiday.
The parade featured former race winners as well as the trainers and jockeys for tomorrow's races. Got to see some the horses "up close and personal" as they were led close to the crowds to say hello.
That's Rogan Josh who won in 1999
