Laurence Fishburne Learns about Melbourne Cup day

MATRIX star Laurence Fishburne was given a crash course about the finer points of Melbourne Cup day.

When two uniformed jockeys from Randwick Racecourse and a promotional girl walked past him during his break from The Matrix Reloaded, Fishburne — still in costume and with a prop attached to his head — quizzed the trio about the outfits and Sports Central’s Cup Day program, which leaps out of the barriers from 12pm next Tuesday.
