Melbourne Cup 2013





I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend the 2013 Melbourne Cup in Melbourne in the Emirates and Mumm Champagne tent with Alex.  He had a plus one ticket and he asked me to go which was so lovely!  We had an incredible day and so wonderful to see Gai Waterhouse over the line in first place with Fiorente!


incredible experience and one I will never forget!



Hearing the roar of the crowd as the 2 mile race was run was so exciting!


This is Alex and his gorgeous co-star in Cut Snake, Jess De Gouw .... Alex has hair extensions in as part of his character .... the film is set in the 1970's


The Three Muskateers!


The gorgeous interiors were filled with gold urns full of red roses ....




The entertainment ......



The thrill of my day apart from being with Alex was meeting Allen Leech who plays Tom Branson in Downton Abbey!!!  What a delightful young man and I told him that my girlfriends and I and Andrew are Downton fanatics and that it was such a pleasure to meet him and how we love the series!  What a beautiful, magical day and how blessed I am to have been able to experience it!

I just got finished telling Ruben that I am drooling over your photos AND THAT YOU ARE WITH BRANSON! WHAT? You are so, so fortunate to first of all be so beautiful, have such wonderful children, and then to have the opportunity to see such artists. My dear, enjoy! THANK YOU! Anita
