After finally breaking one of the most notorious droughts in Australian racing, an illustrious spot in the All-Star Mile could beckon for the people’s horse, Tom Melbourne.
Online bookmaker Sportsbet is getting behind the once perennial bridesmaid to help book a spot at Flemington on the 16th of March.
Currently sitting at 31st on the leader board, a massive 1500 votes behind 10th spot, with only 16 days of voting left, he’s got his work cut out for him.
To generate interest not just for Tom Melbourne but the concept in its entirety, Sportsbet will be directing punters to the voting page for the race through their social channels, their own platform and through their on-air partnerships.
“There probably isn’t a horse who deserves a berth more than poor old Tom and given his recent win, we’re very excited to see what he can do if he gets in“ said sportsbet.com.au’s Rich Hummerston.
