Cup charity act - bookie refunds Maldivian bets
Friday, 16 October 2009
IASbet will refund all pre-post Caulfield Cup bets on sidelined stayer Maldivian.
IASbet supremo Mark Read said he would make the gesture because he ‘owes the horse one’ for saving his skin in last year’s Cox Plate.
“Firstly he would have sent me to the cleaners had he won the Caulfield Cup in 2007 although was scratched at the barriers and then he saved my skin by winning last year’s Cox Plate at the big odds,” Read said.
“Given that we may not see him again – it’s the least I can do for him."
