One punter was all smiles after having a successful $500 win bet on Dinkydi Asset at Warragul on Friday, in what proved to be one of the shrewdest investments with TAB in recent times.
Exiting Box 5 as an $8.50 chance, the Jason Nibbs-trained greyhound capitalised on some interference out in front, sweeping to the lead along the rail and scoring an easy seventh length victory (replay below).
It was Dinkydi Asset’s first win in start number three, and equated to a $4,250 collect for the punter.
A day earlier, two substantial bets from a person totalling $10,000 was placed on Simon Told Helen (pictured above) at $1.50 in a Gr8 Eight event at Sandown Park. That punter would’ve breathed a huge sigh of relief when David Burnett’s speedster held on in a thriller over Tiggerlong Tonk.
Below is a list of the more prominent greyhound bets placed with TAB in recent days…
