On Monday 6 November, the Club held its largest Melbourne Cup Calcutta in the history of the event. Over 212 guests attended the event in the heritage listed Members’ Bar, all wanting a piece of the $123,897 pool. Syndicate H4H took home both the trophy and wooden spoon, with their horses Rekindling and Galante crossing the finish line first and last respectfully.
The Fun Syndicate also claimed two positions, second with Thomas Vermeer and fourth with Big Duke, whilst the Think Bib Syndicate ran third with Max Dynamite.
The Tattersall’s Club community continued its support of National Jockeys Trust with over $3,000 raised during the event. The charity provides support for jockeys, and their families, when they are placed under financial hardship as a result of a racing related injury or death. To date NJT has helped over 300 jockeys and their families and the funds raised on Monday night will help more to overcome their financial woes and cope during these uncertain times when recovery is not always certain.
