Week 14th started with the Dashboard Week. Craig challenged us to have insights on The Melbourne cup, when for few minutes, life stops in Australia. The Data we were given was about 37 years of The Melbourne cup.  For the first hour, we spent exploring the data and especially finding out the meaning of abbreviations used throughout the data.

The data need a lot of parsing and cleaning.

After cleaning the data, the most excited task was started. To visualize it in Tableau with interesting insights. After exploring multiple options, I believed that there is no single factor that contributes the probability of winning. So I decided to look at this data two dimensionally, which means how at a certain age of horse win in different length of race.Here is the final product.
