What a very special Melbourne Cup Long Breakfast it was this year. Congratulations again to Team Godolphin on their first win of the Melbourne Cup and Australian jockey, Kerrin McEvoy on his third. May this be a new era of success for Godolphin with the "Race that stops the Nation".

Dubai Racing and Dubai Eye 103.8 have both been partners of the event for many years now and they always do a fabulous job of capturing the fun of the morning. Click here to see the fabulous footage from Dubai Racing of the breakfast and the race itself. 

We were delighted to have Lexus partner with us for their first Melbourne Cup both in Melbourne and here in Dubai for our Breakfast. What a fabulous backdrop their cars made to the morning and Fashions on the Field Competition.

Thank you to all of our guests who looked so stylish on the morning. As you will see from the photos, everyone made a huge effort. The fashion stakes were high and congratulations to our Best Dressed Woman, Gentlemen and Best Hat Winners, all deserved winners, and we greatly appreciate the support of the Apparel Group (Beverly Hill Polo Club, Jamies Italian), Dr Apsect Skincare, Knights & Lords and Dhamani in recognising them on the day.

We would also like to thank our beauty partners who helped keep everyone feeling and looking fresh during the morning: Dollhouse Hair & Makeup, Six Senses Spa and Pana Chocolate. Careem were also very generous by providing discounts on their fares that day as well as complimentary rides for the lucky table of 10!

A huge congratulations to our many raffle prize winners. Many thanks goes to our raffle partners including:

Emirates & Emirates HolidaysGeorg JensenARN2 BirdsdnataJA Resorts & Hotels, Vox Cinemas, Inspire Yoga, Pilates and Fitness Studio, The Ritz-Carlton DIFC, Pure South, Six Senses Spa, Yalumba, Prime Gourmet, Naked Tan and The Dollhouse.

One last thank you to the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club and MMI for helping us make our Melbourne Cup Breakfast 2018 yet another wonderful celebration of the strong ties between Australia and the UAE. 

Finally we would like to acknowledge John Butler, Victorian Trade Commissioner, and Karen Butler, our ABCD Events Manager. They have both worked tirelessly on behalf of the Australian community over many years and we have have much to thank them for. We wish them all the very best as they return to Melbourne. They will be missed.
