The Melbourne Cup is Australia's most famous annual Thoroughbred horse race. It is a 3200-metre race for three-year-olds and over, conducted by the Victoria Racing Club on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Victoria as part of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. It is the richest 'two-mile' handicap in the world and one of the richest turf races. The event starts at 3:00 pm on the first Tuesday of November and is known locally as 'the race that stops the nation'. The Melbourne Cup has a long tradition, with the first race held in 1861. It was originally run over two miles (3. 219 km) but was shortened to 3, 200 metres (1 mi 1, 740 yd) in 1972 when Australia adopted the metric system. This reduced the distance by 18. 688 metres (61 ft 3+34 in), and Rain Lover's 1968 race record of 3:19. 1 was accordingly adjusted to 3:17. 9. The present record holder is the 1990 winner Kingston Rule with a time of 3:16. 3. Qualifying and race conditions The race is a quality handicap for horses three years old and over, run over a distance of 3200 metres, on the first Tuesday in November at Flemington Racecourse.
