Looking good losing money – Dixie’s Melbourne Cup review

November 7, 2012 by dixwah

The day didn’t start well. Having sacrificed my sleep-in to grab a table on Derby Day, I thought the baton may have been passed.

When my girlfriend turned the light on to start getting ready at about 5.40, I knew I was in for a long day.

Just after 7, we made the trip down Brunswick St to a our mate’s house to ‘finalise preparations’ (ie. accessorise). For me this meant simply getting changed, but between conversations, form analysis and shoe polishing, I was not done early enough to be ready when the taxi arrived.

Subsequent solo taxi to Flemington. Loss: $15.
