Capricorn Enterprise successfully won the bid to host the 2011 Emirates Melbourne Cup on Friday 5th August 2011 as part of its tour throughout 30 host destinations in Australia and New Zealand.

This year, an eclectic mix of Melbourne Cup winners will join the line-up of Tour Ambassadors including Melbourne Cup winning jockeys Roy Higgins (1965 and 1967), Jim Johnson (1963,1968 and 1969), Midge Didham (1970), John Letts (1972 and 1980), Bob Skelton (1976), Greg Hall (1992) and John Marshall (1999).

Wendy Green who drove all the way from Darwin to watch her horse, Rogan Josh, claim the iconic Cup in 1999 and Sheila Laxon, the first female trainer to win a Melbourne Cup (Ethereal – 2001), will join the Tour Ambassador team.
