The Adelaide Cup

The Adelaide Cup was held in May every year in South Australia, and we all got a holiday to attend it. The only problem was it rained every year which kept the crowds away. They have now moved it to later in the year.
I wrote this song to celebrate the day I attended there to play with a great Cellist Jenny Smith many years ago.

I sould add that I’m talking about a horse race.
