Winx’s biggest fan, outside her owners, has returned to support her in today’s TAB Chipping Norton Stakes (1600 metres).
The punter that has continued to back her for the better part of two years and simply reinvests what they win back, splashing out an eye-watering $239,000 @ $1.09 on the champion mare this morning. It is TAB’s second biggest ever bet on a racehorse.
The customer in question has outlaid well in excess of $1.6million on the great mare since the 2017 running of the Chipping Norton. Heading in to the Apollo Stakes first-up, the TAB customer had invested $219,000 @ $1.10 on Winx.
“The bet this morning on Winx is the second biggest we have ever taken on a horse,” TAB’s Andrew Georgiou said.
“After landing a collect with their bet in the Apollo Stakes, the punter has come back this morning and thrown down $239,000 @ $1.09 as they continue to ‘let it ride’.
“The only other bets that have been bigger than what we have seen this morning, from a racing perspective, are the two $250,000 bets on Winx (Apollo Stakes) and Black Caviar in her final race start.”
