What a magnificent horse. Must be "sports-person" of the year/decade/century ?

And $5m for her brother as a one year old.

Never got into the nags. I have mates that punt like mad. A former mate of mine that was a lawyer got himself into serious problems with punting when he fleeced a client to support his habit.

Its a great afternoon - if you like it AND bet what you can afford. My brother has a saying - "If you worry about winning on the bet you placed then you bet to much".

You can have fun just having $1 e/w and keeping the stats etc. My wife does up a sheet with numbers, colours, jockeys etc. She always gets more winners and places than me but I often win more money. I like the odd outsider.

Had a bet one day $5 e/w and the Tab paid 181/1. I just wandered out to watch them walk around - liked the look of him and then had a bet. This annoys real "gamblers" ... :lol:

We use to go on Fridays - have a roast dinner, a bottle of red and a beer and a bet on each race. Lovely day.

30 years ago I used to be able to pick the trotting (easier than the gallops), but I've never thought of putting money down on the NRL....until now.

League punter cleans up with third big win
By Matthew Theunissen
5:30 AM Tuesday Apr 16, 2013

A gambler who won a record $250,000 payout last month from the TAB after picking eight second-round NRL winners has done it again.

This time the punter placed two separate bets on a single round of the NRL, scooping a whopping $430,000.

First, the man placed a successful $8300 multi-bet on all eight favourites to win their respective games, winning him the maximum allowable return of $250,000.

He placed another $10,000 bet on all eight favourites, with the only variation being that North Queensland Cowboys would come within 12.5 points of the Brisbane Broncos. This got him another $180,000.

TAB spokesman John Mitchell said this was the biggest ever fixed-odds payout by the TAB.

"For him to win three bets like this in the space of a month is pretty incredible," he said.

The man - who did not want to be identified - was a "very quiet fella" who was obsessed with the NRL.

"He is an absolute NRL junkie: he does his research, he does his homework.

He goes to the Brandon St and the Courtenay Place TABs and I'm told by the locals there that he sits down with his little book of facts and figures and he scours the newspaper and the websites."

Mr Mitchell said the win had "hit the TAB's pocket", but it was good to see someone get a big win.

University of Auckland statistician Carl Hamblyn said the chance of picking all eight winners once was 0.4 per cent. "The probability of a punter correctly picking all eight winners on a multi is very small. And to do that three times in a row is practically nil."
