The all-important barrier draw – where starting positions for the horses competing at the 2018 Melbourne Cup – is set to take place at 6:30pm (AEDT) on Saturday, November 3. This is The Roar’s ultimate guide to the barrier draw, including how to live stream the event, or watch it on TV.
The Melbourne Cup carnival begins earlier that day, with the Victoria Derby the biggest race on the card.
With the full field of horses to be trimmed from 47 to 24 after the Derby, the Melbourne Cup frenzy will well and truly be underway once the night is over.
While there is a lot more than goes into which horse deserves favouritism than the starting barrier, there is still an enormous amount of attention paid to the event, as certain barriers have provided significantly more winners than others.
According to Races.com.au, barrier number five has been the most successful over the journey – with eight winners – while nobody has emerged victorious from barrier 18.
Last year’s winner, Rekindling, did so from barrier number four, while it’s been more than 35 years since anyone triumphed from barriers 6, 12, 15, 19, 23 and 24.
With $7.3 million in prize money on offer, it’s sure to be an intriguing evening.
How to watch the Barrier Draw on TV
Luckily, the barrier draw will be available to watch on free-to-air television, through dedicated racing channel Racing.com.
They will have racing coverage on all throughout the day until 6:30pm (AEDT), when the barrier draw commences.
