Fillies and stallions pack golf club

By Morgan Dyer

The marquees at Flemington could not compare to Tatura's Hill Top Golf and Country Club Melbourne Cup celebration last Tuesday.

Nearly 100 fillies and stallions packed the brightly decorated club to celebrate Australia's biggest day of racing.

Dressed in their finest attire, visitors splashed their cash in an attempt to win one of the many sweeps held on the day.

Yellow roses swarmed the dining room as people tucked into three courses of fabulous food and drinks.

Unlucky punters had other opportunities for a win, as raffles were drawn and best-dressed prizes handed out throughout the day.

One lucky golfer celebrated in style after they won $5000 from the Cup Eve Calcutta.
