The final day of the VRC's Melbourne Cup carnival has become a great family day but also features some excellent racing for the purist. Included are the Emirates Stakes a Group 1 "mile", the Group 2 Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the Group 2 Maribyrnong Plate for two-year-olds and the Group 3 Matriarch Stakes for mares. The Emirates Legends Race, taken out by Hong Kong legend Tony Cruz, has added an extra dimension to the carnival creating plenty of interest and nostalgia. The second emergency Desert Eagle, who only gained a run due to scratchings the morning of the race, took out the feature event. The Queen Elizabeth Stakes provided a historic first win in Australia for the famous Godolphin stable with Patrick Payne guiding Hatha Anna to a strong win over the 2500m.
