More to the point (though I'm not greatly interested) the horse racing season is happening; yesterday was the Melbourne Cup, where yet again I invested in sweepstakes at the office and my local pub, and won nothing. Mark Schroeder was dressed for the day, though, as the photo shows. I suspect it was a practice run for the annual shenanigans of Cup Week next week, leading up to Canterbury's Show Day - the provincial anniversary holiday.
