Moving the Melbourne Cup From the First Tuesday in November? – It’s Just Un-Australian

To those such Racenet’s Ben Dorries who argue that the Melbourne Cup could be moved to any date other than the first Tuesday in November, and still be The Cup, I reply with just three questions.

Would you should reschedule Christmas Day to any other date but the 25th of December?

Would you move Anzac Day from the the 25th of April?

Then what’s the difference?
