Turf Deli Spring Racing Carnival - On The Lawn
Caulfield Cup 2006 - Preview - No more playtime 21/10/2006

The Caulfield Cup is steeped in tradition and known as the best guide to the time honoured Melbourne Cup. In recent years, it has also provided another very important lead up – a practice run for the younger crowd to test their binge drinking limits before Schoolies Week starts for real.

So this year the MRC (that’s Melbourne Racing Club, not Mornington Roof Care) have cracked down on the partying teenagers with no concession entry except for those under 14 (to try and cut into the booze kitty), and wrist bands will be required in order to buy alcohol.

We are assuming the wrist band policy only applies to people who look on the younger side - else you might see Lee Freedman sporting a bright pink plastic bracelet as he leads the winner back to the stalls so he can buy a celebratory drink after.

In more drastic reforms to dissuade the rampaging youth from attending, there will be no more free lollipops for the kids, and all under age race goers will now be herded into a new funky and very exclusive area known as the “Holding Pen” – where a school teacher will run over the basics of trigonometry, before exposing them to the race day experience – by assigning them to pick up rubbish around the racecourse
