November 1994
Sandown racecourse

Centisle [4/1 fav] led, Ladys Way [20/1]was coming at it
Photo finish, developed print, after several minutes , Ladys Way was adjudged the winner

No BIG deal , just another race for most punters
But not for one punter
He had Centisle going in a super 6 bet
Had Centilse won the race he would have got the Super 6
His $32 investment would have been a winner if Centisle won the race
The unlucky punter had the only live winning unit in a $1,026,562 pool if Centisle got up
He had 2 runners in the last keg, the other ran 5th


FUNDaMENTALly there should be a winner in any bets placed on the tote
That no one collected, in a Million dollar pool,  does not make cents to sum punters

Then there are those who love Jackpots and a BIG pool for a decent collect , and dont mind the lot jackpotting

The TABs love Jackpots as they get ma$$ive re-investments which means they collect commissions, usually close to a fifth of the pot , and it makes cents to them

The question is
Should there be Jackpots or should all pools have a dividend on all races ?

first thing that should be amended is the shorties paying $1.00 for a win, you should not be in a position where you can not win but only lose on a race...........yes i know that people will say ''why would anyone back them that short ?" and i'd ask the same question but people do back them otherwise they wouldn't be paying $1.00

That $1-00 dividend  only applies to Unitab
Victorian and New South Wales TABs pay out a minimum $1-04
In the past they have had the occasional $1-00 div as well for whatever reasons

I agree the Unitab $1-00 dividend is FUNDaMENTALly a wrongism
However I take the good with the bad
Unitab has good fixed odds , compared to other agencies , especially local harness racing

14/4/2018 a day to remember
For most it was the 25th win in a row for the mighty WI Wink NX

This is how jockey Daniel Moor performed at Caulfield

1-4 DEJAKKAH .............10TH....$41
2-9 THE THUG...............8TH.....$41
3-5 CASINO ROSE.........6TH......$21
4-16 LYCURGUS............7TH......$20
5-13 BERKSHIRE LADY...9TH......$31

Rode roughies at this stage without any success
There were 4 races left

6-6 MAGNAPAL..........................1ST......$26
7-12 REIL MARTINI....................1ST......$7
8-16 KING RIVER.......................1ST......$26
9-15 WORKING FROM HOME.......1ST......$11

That is a day to remember, riding the 4 legs of the TAB quaddies
The Unitab quaddie paid $89470.30 for the $1 unit

Daniel Moor was fined  for excessive whipping on Magnapal
That cost him $750 , which ends up a small price to pay for fame
