I vow not to bet on the 2016 Melbourne Cup.
Having an abysmal record in punting on that particular race, I only outlaid around $30 or so this year plus a couple of bonus bets.
Put them in a text file and couldn't find it until I went through some folder's this morning.
Listing the results of my bets below, I would hereby like to declare myself as the world's worst Melbourne Cup punter
6.50 @ 41 - Red Cadeaux 24th (died)
50 @ 41 - Snow Sky (bonus bet) 23rd
7.5 @ 41 - Sky Hunter 22nd
19 @ 50 - Hokko Brave 17th
25 @ 26 - Hartnell (bonus bet) 15th
Noted that in the last two Cups I have backed horses that have died.
Someone try and beat that record!
