One TAB punter enjoyed a terrific Thursday afternoon after the win of Damien Oliver ridden Miami Bound (NZ) in the Group 1 Kennedy Oaks (2500m) at Flemington culminated in a $34,992 collect from a $1 outlay.
On October 17, the customer placed $1 on this Multi:
• Mer De Glace to win the Caulfield Cup on October 19 $8
• Lys Gracieux to win the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley on October 26 $4.50
• Warning to win the Victoria Derby at Flemington on November 2 $9
• Vow And Declare to win the Melbourne Cup at Flemington on November 5 $18
• Miami Bound to win the Kennedy Oaks at Flemington today $6
“This collect of almost $35,000 from a $1 outlay is simply one of the most remarkable paydays in TAB history,” TAB’s Trent Langskaill said.
“The TAB customer in question has lived the dream of every punter by delving into their crystal ball or figurative Grays Sports Almanac from the film Back to the Future 2 and picking the winners of five feature races during the Melbourne Spring Carnival.”
“This punter put their faith in the Japanese horses early, had to rely on two three-year-olds to hopefully showcase their staying ability, and also owes Craig Williams a debt of gratitude for his tactically astute ride aboard Vow And Declare in the race that stops a nation.”
This astounding Multi comes on the back of another TAB punter pocketing $90,450 from a $20 three-leg Multi placed on February 21 after Vow And Declare won the Melbourne Cup.
The customer required Richmond ($5 at the time of the bet) to win the 2019 AFL Premiership, the Sydney Roosters ($4.50 at the time of the bet) to win the 2019 NRL Premiership and Vow And Declare ($201 at the time of the bet) to win the 2019 Melbourne Cup.
