Let's Make Melbourne Cup Day a National Holiday
Petition Background (Preamble):
It is generally regarded as the most prestigious "two-mile" handicap in the world. The event is held on the first Tuesday in November by the Victoria Racing Club, on the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne.
This day was traditionally only a public holiday within metropolitan Melbourne, but is now also observed as a holiday in the ACT.
