All attendees celebrated the spirit of the Rippleside Cup and took part in horse races across the park.
Despite the failing light both the horses and jockeys were keen to show their talents and run their race.
There were many surprises among the winners with a female jockey (Jo White) having struggled with her mount early in the race finally regaining control in the home straight to win the coveted prize.
Other winners were Murray McDonald who showed great form as a galloper in his first appearance at this course.
A great time was had by all with the Cup Sweep prizes going to the following:
 
1st Judy Beasley      
2nd Simon Empson
3rd Lena Titaud
Lucky Last John Vergona 
 
A Melbourne Cup Trivia Quiz was also held. This was a good test for members after a long day at the races.
   

Birthday

At the end of the race program the Club joined our Exchange student Lena Tetaud with a birthday cake to help celebrate her 18th Birthday. The Club presented Lena with a beautiful bracelet and card as a memento of the occasion.
