People stormed to the Muswellbrook Race Club on Melbourne Cup Day

THE weird and the wonderful gathered at Muswellbrook Race Club (MRC) on Tuesday as punters and socialites gathered to watch the local races as well as the big event, the Melbourne Cup.

Despite hot and humid conditions, MRC was stacked as people clamoured to enjoy the entertainment.

Deciding who was best dressed was an impossible task, as the attendees put on a show for the many cameras hovering around the course.

Fortunate to avoid the storm that marred events around the state, the day could only be seen as a success and the sea of smiles was testament to that.

The Chronicle was out there to gather the best pictures from a frantic day at the race club.
