Victoria Racing Club (VRC) Chairman Amanda Elliott said the global focus of this year’s Tour reflects the undisputed international profile of the Lexus Melbourne Cup. 
“The appeal of our illustrious race stretches far beyond Flemington. The Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour gives us an important opportunity to share the magic of the Cup with people everywhere,” Mrs Elliott said. 

“The Tour has become one of the most important things we do at the VRC. We are custodians of something that means so much to so many – a day of national unity symbolised by the iconic three-handled Cup.”
