Our first bet (3 Units) had the perfect run of the race, in the straight he left the rest of the field behind him and opened up a winning break. An outsider came from nowhere to sneak up on the inside and just beat “The Best Horse in Tasmania“.
The winner was $51 fixed with the Corporates, but $35 on the TAB. All the really big punters bet with the TAB, on special commissions. Why the huge difference in price, and why did the money come for a complete outsider against “The Best Horse in Tasmania“. I have had a lousy run in Tasmania so far this year, and it is probably my wallet talking, but I have had a gutful of short priced “certainties” getting pipped on the post by Outsiders in The Apple Isle.
Pity it wasn’t War Admiral we were betting on
