Americain: Governor-General Presents 2010 Melbourne Cup

The Governor-General, Quentin Bryce, has described the Melbourne Cup as a “day of national unanimity”.

She made the comment during her presentation to the connections of the winning horse at Flemington Race Course in Melbourne.

The 150th Melbourne Cup was won by Americain. Maluckyday was second, whilst the sentimental favourite, So You Think, came in third.

Bryce said it was also a day of “individual financial adventure” and, “if you are female, exuberant showing-off”.

By tradition, the Governor-General makes the presentation to the winner of the Melbourne Cup.
