150th Melbourne Cup

This plaque commemorates the 150th
Melbourne Cup run at Flemington Racecourse
on Tuesday 2 November, 2010.

On Sunday 31 October
the 2010 Melbourne Cup trophy was paraded
in Union Road, Ascot Vale central to
a celebratory street parade
attended by thousands of local residents.

The Victoria Racing Club appreciated the support
shown by the Moonee Valley City Council and
Union Road Traders on that occasion.

The 2010 Melbourne Cup trophy was won by
Americain (USA) - which was bred in America;
French trained and ridden, yet Australian owned.
