More than 14,000 people attended the racecourse to watch the Cup on the biggest screen in the southern hemisphere.
But when the on-course electricity transponder malfunctioned, the screen stayed blank.
Brisbane Racing Club general manager Scott Steele said the on-course generator engaged, but it could not produce enough power.
“Our generator puts out 400kVa and we needed 1400 to get the whole track up and running,” he said.
“Unfortunately we just had to wait until Energex come to fix the transponder.”
Mr Steele said he was gutted by the power outage.
“It certainly has put a dampening on what looked like being a fantastic day,” he said.
“For something like this [to happen] that is out of our control it is still a fair kick in the guts, that is for sure.
“We even had a couple of speakers hooked up to some car batteries to try and let the customers at least hear it.”
Mr Steele said bookies were forced to take bets the old fashioned way, with a pen and paper.
“It was certainly a unique Melbourne Cup,” he said.
Energex spokesman Danny Donald said the blackout was sparked by a large amount of power being drawn in a short time.
“It tripped the safety fuses that feed into the track,” he said.
“The fuses did exactly what they’re made to do.
“What we need to know now, exactly what energy intensive equipment the track did bring in on the day.”
Mr Donald said it was a disappointing day for the punters but the power was back on within 40 minutes.
Mr Steele said the Brisbane Racing Club would examine how to compensate the punters.
“We’ll make that call tomorrow, this is obviously just character-building stuff,” he said.
“At the moment everyone’s still having a cold beer, it hasn’t dampened too many people.
“Obviously we lost some of the … punters but we’ve still got plenty of people on course still having a good time.”
In the show’s final pre-election take, Mr Trump and Mrs Clinton — played by Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon respectively — made amends in an attempt to convince Americans to vote in the November 8 election.
The sketch opened with a mock interview of the candidates by CNN’s Erin Burnett, played by actress Cecily Strong.
During the interview, Baldwin-as-Trump denies close ties with the FBI, Vladimir Putin and the Ku Klux Klan despite appearing to exchanging kisses with each of them.
All the while, Mr Trump’s interruptions are casually ignored, with the interview returning to probe the issue of Mrs Clinton’s emails.
“What is happening?” McKinnon-as-Clinton’s character asks, “Is the whole world insane?”
Baldwin and McKinnon broke character to address the audience, with Baldwin saying “I just feel gross all the time … Don’t you guys feel gross all the time about this?”
Breaking down the fourth wall on live television, the two ran hand-in-hand outside NBC’s New York studio into the streets.
They embraced their critics — Baldwin with ethnic families, McKinnon with Trump supporters.
On a final and more serious note, Baldwin and McKinnon came together to deliver their key message to the American people: “Get out there and vote”.
Baldwin and McKinnon have entertained the masses throughout the US election campaign.
Their parodies of the presidential debates on SNL poked fun at the often bizarre twists and scandals that popped up along the way.
SNL gave audiences their first take on the US campaign when it kicked off its 42nd season with a sketch of the first presidential debate.
Veteran actor and frequent host Alec Baldwin debuted as a scowling, blustering Donald Trump to thundering praise.
The sketch focused on the issue of Donald Trump’s tax avoidance, or as McKinnon-as-Clinton called it, “Trumped-up, trickle-down economics”.
But not all feedback was positive — Mr Trump took to Twitter to tell the world he thought Baldwin’s portrayal of him “stinks”.
Baldwin and McKinnon reprised their roles to parodythe second presidential debate as Mr Trump took aim at former US president Bill Clinton’s alleged sexual assault of four women.
Taking on the third presidential debate, SNL parodied Mr Trump’s sentiments towards the Latino community and his promises to build a border wall between Mexico and the United States.
As the 2016 US election campaign nears its end and with the election looming, this latest episode broke character to offer the audience a moment of levity.
The show will air a special episode on Monday night and is set to include a compilation of its 2016 campaign coverage.
The rare access is for Sydney Open, a behind-the-scenes look at the city’s most historic and interesting architecture.
Dr Sophie Lieberman from Sydney Living Museums said the day will be “like Christmas for architecture nuts”.
“These buildings are usually places people walk past every day,” Dr Lieberman said.
“They might look up and wonder ‘what goes on in there?’ or ‘that looks interesting’, so it’s an opportunity to walk through the front door … and get to see the really extraordinary interiors of our heritage sights and also the best of modern architectural design in Sydney.”
Some of the historic buildings that Sydneysiders can buy a ticket to enter include the Lands Department Building, Hong Kong House, Legion House, the Great Synagogue and Pier 2/3 at Walsh Bay.
Some of the more modern spaces that will be open are Barangaroo, the rooftop of the AMP building which was Sydney’s first skyscraper, Deutsche Bank Place and the EY building.
“Unless you work in those buildings you’re getting to see something you would never see,” Dr Lieberman said.
“At Barangaroo people will be able to go in and not just see the lobby, which in itself is a really interesting design resolution, but actually go up into some of the different tenancies.
“We are also opening an untenanted floor on level 41, so there is an opportunity to go up and get an extraordinary 360 degree view uninterrupted because no one has built in there yet.”
On Saturday, 1,500 people paid to take part in exclusive tours of some of the city’s more elusive sites.
Disused platforms 26 and 27 at Central Station, the Central Station clock tower, Mortuary Station where the dead were once transported from the city to Rookwood Cemetery, the tunnels under St James Station, Westpac Bank’s office at Barangaroo, and the five cascading gardens on the rooftop of 333 George Street were some of the locations.
Murray Gosling from Surry Hills heard about the disused platforms under Central Station a couple of years ago and wondered what lay beneath.
“I had always wanted to come here so it’s quite exciting and I also heard that it’s haunted so that was a bit of a drawcard,” Mr Gosling said.
“I think it’s quite amazing, I can’t believe it’s not being used.”
Sydney Trains staff have reported hearing voices and the sounds of children’s laughter over the years.
“It’s very exciting to be here but it also feels a bit creepy,” Mr Gosling said.
Mary and John O’Byrne from Epping joined a tour of the Central Station clock tower.
After taking 302 steps up the 85 metre, sandstone tower they loved what they saw at the top.
“It’s great, really good to see the innards of something I have been visiting for years because I use the trains all the time,” Mrs O’Byrne said.
“The clock’s amazing and it’s interesting that it’s an electrical driven clock,” Mr O’Byrne added.
“Back in the 1920s [it would have been] one of the early electrical driven clocks — still running today, pretty impressive.”
