Mr Poole said he was thrilled after received the call and quickly began studying the form guide for the race.
“I was blown away to receive the call,” he said.
“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to win a million dollars.
“I haven’t slept since, studying the form guide and hoping to pick the winner for the big race.”
