Long before cricket, rugby league or Aussie Rules became the collective obsession of the nation, one sport reigned supreme. Horse racing was our first national sport. In fact, a settlement couldn't be called a "town" unless it had a racetrack. These days many of those country tracks have closed but not in Birdsville, in outback Queensland. For more than 130 years they have staged and run the Birdsville Cup. It may not stop the nation, but this day of boozing, brawling and betting, certainly echoes across the outback.
