Stradbroke Punter Gets Most From the Least
Meanwhile, the old adage that luck's a fortune was never truer than on Saturday, when a NSW TAB punter spent a lazy $25 to box five runners in the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap's First 4. That outlay returned 20.83 percent of the huge $102,150 dividend, resulting in a $21,281.28 collect, one which could have been even higher had outsider Madame Rouge ($53.90) held off the withering finish of Tyzone ($13.80). Niccanova ($13.10) and Vega One ($14.60) filled third and fourth respectively. It was only one of a handful of winning First 4 tickets on the Group 1 event.
