A big big thank you to you all from my heart for a fantastic event yesterday!
Thank you to those who were there and proved that you can have a good time and be glamourous without hurting others (be it racehorses or any other beings by leaving them off your plate). Thank you to those who wanted to be there and missed out on a ticket, you proved that this event was necessary and just a start for bigger things in the future.Thank you to @bodhirestaurantbar for making this event perfect!!! Thank you to those who contributed with generous raffle donations! Thank you to those who were there in spirit and nupped to the cup on social media and everywhere else, every voice against this cruel stupidity of horseracing needs to be heard loudly. We won’t change the fact that another beautiful soul has lost his life in the most cruel way yesterday but we have to fight against the way these beings are treated in the future and we all need to do our bit.
Each of you involved in the Nup the Cup Lunch yesterday have helped me to raise $3120 which will all go to the three chosen sanctuaries with ex-racehorses. You have spread kindness instead of supporting cruelty, thank you so much for that!
Feel free to share your photos of the day and #nupthecup and #nupthecuplunch and tell your friends and collegues about it, this lunch was just a start!
Thank you all 🙏 #nupthecup#nupthecuplunch#nupthecuplunchsydney#horseracingkills#youbettheydie#melbournecup#nuptothecup#horses#lovehorsesnotraces#bekindtoeverykind#animalsarenotforentertainment

Featured here are two recipients of the donations raised through the Nup the Cup Lunch, Lucky Lago and Didge. Lucky Lago was rescued from slaughter as a 2 year old as his trainer deemed him no good. He had been purchased for $40k as a yearling. Didge, short for Digitise, is a 20 year old retired horse who had an unsuccessful racing career of three starts then became a ridden horse and has back problems as a result. Didge is the horse with the white face markings. They are now loved and cared for and free from harm, let’s support the wonderful people that took them in so they can be someone not something.
