It’s a long day at the races, and sometimes you just have to rest your legs.
Just ask favourite of Race 8 at Flemington, Suavito, which decided against taking on the field and just stayed in the gates.
Legendary called Greg Miles found it hard to spot the four-year-old mare over the 1400m, mostly because it wasn’t running!
Stewards declared Suavito a runner, but we weren’t having any of that, refunding all single win and place bets placed on the fancied mare.
In total, over $124,000 was given back to unlucky punters.
Not a bad way to end the first big day of Spring, the bets time of the year!
