What an action packed race the Melbourne Cup was!  Everyone held their breath for the photo finish before Dunaden was declared the winner!  And Dunaden wasn’t the only winner.  The judges @TheDuckInnPub had a hard task selecting the winners of the Best Hat and the Best Dressed.  Winners are grinners –

There were so many great hats but in the end, our Best Hat was awarded to the lovely Sally (left) pictured here with her friend, Krew and the yummy hamper of goodies she won!  We loved how everyone got into the spirit of the Melbourne Cup (even though we are in Sydney!)

                                                                  Our best dressed prize went to the gurus from Strand Hatters – Robert, Peter and Rick. Looking very dapper, they had no trouble impressing the judges.  Bring back the hat for the guys we say!

A fun day out at The Duck Inn Pub and Kitchen, with a few crazy hats, a lot of very stylish people and a fantastic race watched indoors and out in the courtyard!  Can’t wait for next year’s cup now.
