I was in a pub a few years ago when four young blokes came in and took some interest in the races.
I recognised one as a middle tier apprentice and another as an apprentice with a lesser recognition factor. In the couple of hours they were there these two had one of the other fellows put their bets on for them.
Well, they passed money to him and he proceeded to the TAB window. If that was betting they were. They could have been passing money they owed for other things and the guy have been betting these paid debts for himself.
From the money passing hands the stakes looked in the region of $10-$20.
I thought to myself "I suppose they are breaking this ridiculous law but how could it be proved?"
