It's the race that stops the nation and plenty of local punters chose the Tamworth Jockey Club to perch up and watch the Melbourne Cup.
The club was a hive of activity with a six-race card for the non-TAB meeting on the first Tuesday in November.
The patrons were dressed to the nines as they soaked up a brilliant day's racing on the track and the telly where they saw Verry Elleegant take out the Melbourne Cup.
They also got to see first hand Bendemeer trainer Jane Clement pick up a racing double as she bookended the meeting.
Check out the photos The Northern Daily Leader got of everyone having a good time below.
