Absolute ripper of a lobster bet
THREE truckie mates had plenty of reason to celebrate after receiving a hot tip for a horse racing at Warwick Farm in Sydney.
It was in race 4 on October 24 and they went into their local Pub Tab and expected the galloper to be one of the favourites.
However they looked at its price on the odds screen and this top weight (number one) it was paying $13.
Two of the lads had a flutter on the horse whilst the other punter saw that it was showing $34 for the win on fixed odds.
So he placed what he described as a "lobster" or $20 bill at those juicy odds and the horse duly won and he picked up $680.
It ended up paying more $19.80 for the win on the normal betting and the two also had $20 a win on it.
And the name of the horse - it was Absolute Ripper.
