Yeah! Kiwis love the horse racing! The Wellington Cup is a big thing here, where the girls get dressed up in fancy frocks and crazy hats, and try to get their boyfriends to dress up as well. The day was miserably hot… as Welly has a pretty balmy climate, I think it may have been the only miserably hot day we’re going to have in 2009, so that in itself was a bit exciting. As for the horse racing… meh.
