Melbourne Cup-goer makes incredible discovery of racing horses in middle of annual booze party

Several riders are dead and hundreds injured after a panicked crowd discovered horses had made their way into Melbourne’s annual booze party.

Several riders are dead and hundreds injured after a panicked crowd discovered horses had made their way into Melbourne’s annual booze party.

An attendee made an incredible discovery yesterday at Australia’s prestigious annual booze party, the Melbourne Cup, alerting other party-goers to the fact there were racing horses running around a large track in the centre of the event.

“There’s fuckin’ horses over here, holy fuck!” yelled Damian Funnell, the ticket-holder responsible for the discovery, in an attempt to alert others. “Did any of you know there was fuckin’ horses in here?”

Others rushed to the scene of the horses, which witnesses say were running around in a giant oval in the middle of the festivities, and expressed similar shock at what they saw.

“Who let the fuckin’ horses in?” yelled one woman in the direction of a nearby pavilion.

As more and more party-goers discovered the not-before-seen racing track, hysteria began breaking out around the ground, with many drunk attendees fearing what might happen if the horses got free from their giant, oval enclosure.

“The fences weren’t even that high, honestly,” said Martin Schaff, who only became aware of the horses after attempting to find a bathroom, and happening upon the race instead. “’What in the shit is this?’ I thought to myself. You can’t have horses in the middle of a party, they could get loose, start trampling people, shitting everywhere, anything could happen.”

While many cleared away from the oval after discovering its existence, others climbed over the fences to offer the horses alcohol.

By the end of the day, many drunk horses had run free of the race track, eating the clothes off several party-goers, while other horses died of alcohol poisoning.

Schaff described the scene as “total chaos.”

“Honestly, I blame the organizers,” he said. “You can say, ‘oh, you shouldn’t have boozed up the horses,’ or ‘oh, you know, you shouldn’t have been trying to ride them or stack them on top of one another,’ but at the end of the day, what do they think is going to happen when they invite horses to a fucking party?”

Victoria Racing Club Chairman, Mr. Michael Burn, said the club, which organizes the Melbourne Cup every year, was “fully aware” of the race occurring in the middle of the event, and while it might have appeared unusual to many attendees, it was “not entirely unprecedented.”

Burn said he was “disappointed” that some had given alcohol to the horses at the event.

“That’s not what horses drink,” he said.
