When the Melbourne Cup Horse Racing Cup comes around each year, punters in Australia bet millions on this single horse race, hoping to make a few dollars.

For Me, my luck is so bad, even if I bet on one horse race, my horse would drop dead and not finish.
And as predicted, my chosen horse for the race came last, I've managed over the last few years to pick horses that always finish in the last half of the field.
If you want to make some money on horse racing, simply ask me to pick a winner, then back all the other horses in the race.wink
So I decided to have some fun, and painted my favourite tip to win the Melbourne Cup.cool
You will notice I did not give the saddle a number, its more fun that way.
I do hope you get a laugh from my oil painting, I know I did when I was painting it.
