Easy money to be won in the Melbourne Cup Calcutta

With the spring carnival in full-flight, make sure you buy some tickets in the traditional Melbourne Cup Calcutta.

Tickets are $2.

How it works and what you need to do:

  1. Buy plenty of $2 tickets to go into the draw.
  2. Head down to the Star Hotel on Melbourne Cup Eve - Monday 3 November at 7pm.
  3. Hope that your ticket gets drawn out - one ticket is drawn for each horse in the Melbourne Cup.
  4. Watch the auction - each horse is auctioned off on the night. If your ticket is drawn out for that horse and you think it has a winning chance, you can purchase the horse for half the auction price.
  5. The money from the horse auction goes into a pool and is divided between 1,2,3 and last.

Last year's first prize was $1500.

Tickets can be purchased from the Rutherglen Newsagency or the Star Hotel.

Thanks to the loyal Rutherglen Football and Netball Club past players group for organising the event.

Other news

Rutherglen is a good sport

We have achieved Level 3 Good Sports accreditation. The program is run by VicHealth in conjunction with the Australian Drug Foundation. This is the highest level possible without doing away with our bar. 

It shows that our club is doing everything possible to responsibly manage alcohol consumption. It means our percentage of alcohol revenue compared to other revenue streams has been reduced significantly. 

This has helped to improve the image of the club within the community and decrease the risk of liability. It also shows that the Cattery is a very family orientated club.
