Join us on Twitter on Melbourne Cup Day (Tuesday 6 November 2012) and help make #DufflecoatSupreme trend.
Some people have been flummoxed about who to bet on for the Melbourne Cup every year. So here at Champagne Comedy, here is a cheat sheet for the ultimate contender of horses entering races that trots all over Phar-Lap and Black Caviar. It is Graham and The Colonel‘s very own: Dufflecoat Supreme.
The gorgeous breed of rodeo horse is a sure-fire winner in any race, including the Greyhounds, with a record number of times being scratched. We cannot supply a photo of this horse due to being in a witness protection program, so here’s a rundown of special abilities that make Dufflecoat Supreme a truly special horse.
- Almost died of a mystery illness: head kicked in after losing for the 27th time… allegedly.
- Tennis Elbow
- Cracked Lips (possibly from all the punching)
- Receding hair-line
- Grey hair
- PMT (and was a Stallion)
- Car Sickness
- Beer Gut
- Athletes Hoof
So don’t put a hoof wrong and place your bets on a sure-fire winner. If you’re still unsure, take Bargearse‘s tip: Number 5 with Black Bean Sauce.
Disclaimer: If you found this via Google and are not aware of this champagne sketch comedy, it’s satire from 1992 and none of it is true.
Dufflecoat Supreme is name checked as the winner of a race at Golden Gate racetrack in San Francisco in John Birmingham’s novel Zero Day Code.
