A TAB customer is today counting the cash after securing the entire First 4 dividend in the Lexus Melbourne Cup.
Spending just $24, the NSW punter’s brave decision to stand $29 shot Twilight Payment out for first has paid off handsomely.
They collected $64,418.50 after correctly selecting the winner and then throwing in four numbers for second, third and fourth.
The Chosen One added plenty of spice to the First 4 dividend after going around as a $28 chance on the tote. Race favourite Surprise Baby failing to fill a hole added plenty of extra fat to the dividend.
