"The flip that stops the nation"

We like a wine or beer on a Tuesday.
We like a bit of a punt.
We like a tradition.
Some of us even like to put on funny hats. We like that too?

But... The horses keep dying. We don't like that. #isayneigh

The answer is simple really. Swap out the horses for a kip. Swap the Jockeys for a couple of pennies. We still have our beers. We still have a punt. We still have our funny hats. Feel the excitement as the flip nears. Feel the hatred for that monarchist at work who bet on heads. Wouldn't that be fun?

On top of it all, we have an additional, more upbeat occasion to remember the sacrifice of the ANZACs.

Flemmington is packed.
The coins flip, the nation waits.
Animals are safe.
