Each year a crew of punters and other desperates meets for lunch at
The All Nations Hotel, 64 Lennox St, Richmond
12.30 for 1pm, Monday Nov 4
Raffle items welcome
Greg Carpenter pops in for the traditional discussion of the form. His insights are quite remarkable, and he’s a always good for a chat over an ale as well. Greg goes through the runners drawing on his encyclopaedic mind.
And he is, after all, the bloke who sets the weights for the Cup (and all races).
There is a raffle, and from the raffle we gather a pool of money which we spend on the trifecta.
Then the debate begins. Fortified by lunch, punters will declare their affection for a runner, explaining their case and their knock on other runners. A debate ensues. A series of votes are taken until the posse decides on the make-up of their trifecta.
We missed last year, so we are due.
The winnings are donated to charity.
All welcome. Please rsvp t email@example.com
