If you’ve been put in charge of getting your Melbourne Cup Office Sweep organised, don’t fret: The Carousel has you covered.

Simply decide on the cost you’d like to allocate per horse ($1, $2 etc), and the way you want to split the total prize pool – winner takes all, or percentage share for first, second or third etc.

For example, if you sell each horse for $5 that gives you a pot of $120. That means you could allocate $70 for first, $30 for second and $20 for third.

If you’re in a smaller group, it might pay to keep the cost per horse lower so you can sell more than one ticket per person.

Then you just need to print out our handy sweep wall chart below, put 24 numbers in a hat and write the name of who’s drawn what horse in the space underneath the comment section.


The race is broadcast live on Network Ten – Tuesday, November 2nd at 3pm. If you want to stream it, then visit 10play here.

It’s also being streamed live via the TAB  to all members. Or you can head to the website of Racing Victoria, Racing.com, or the streaming site Kayo.

For audio-only streams check out TAB Radio, RSN Racing, Sky Sports Radio, and ABC Grandstand.
