Townsville Bulletin - - News -

GAM­BLING his­tory was cre­ated at the UK’s Ex­eter race­course when Steve Whiteley won $ 2,307,025 with a $ 3 bet. It was the largest pay­out in the his­tory of the Tote jack­pot. The bet re­quired pun­ters to name all six win­ners at the meet­ing. Whiteley said: ‘‘ Why did I pick the last one? Lodge ( Jessica Lodge, rid­ing the fi­nal win­ning horse) is just a name that sticks in my head. I didn’t know any­thing about her. I’m not a rac­ing man.’’ His win­ners were: Semi Colon at 2-1; Black Phan­tom, 12-1; Am­mu­ni­tion, 16-1; Mr Bennett, 16-1; Lundy Sky, 5-1; and Lupita at 12-1.
