People had been saying in the week leading up to the races that Cyclone Wilma was about to hit and I was going to look like Brian Brake's Monsoon Girl. We got a foggy, hazy drizzle in the second half of the day. The Fashions in the Field tent started to leak. Puddles formed along the queue to the betting booths. I huddled underneath the awnings of food caravans, shivering and downing hot chocolates and sugary donuts. We waited on the train platform as the rain fell down and the loudspeakers blared Top 40 music. People were ill-prepared, huddling underneath jackets and picnic blankets. I sheltered underneath the canopy of a dripping tree. Guy Sebastian's Who's That Girl came on and suddenly people were dancing, laughing, kissing and whirling around on the slick concrete. Nobody cared much about the rain then. The moment was perfect.
