THE Melbourne Cup is affectionately known as the ‘race that stops a nation’, but in the 21st century that moniker has never been more apt, given how ubiquitous the access to the big race currently is.
Not so long ago if you did not have a radio or were not on track, there was no way to experience the Melbourne Cup live. Thankfully those days are well behind us.
