Most work places hold a Cup Day sweep and fund-raisers and often use the day for a favourite charity with mock horse races, fancy dress and mad hat competitions or a trivia quiz.
The Folio Section of the RHSV contains just the book for anyone who wants to organise a Cup Trivia Competition: The Melbourne Cup (circa 1923) by H. Mitchell. With its photos of jockeys, owners, trainers, great horses and race finishes as well as detailed descriptions of the previous Melbourne Cups.
