Living The Dream

Gary Still

Living the Dream was $3.70 favourite in Melbourne Race 3 yesterday and going backwards with 250 metres to go.

There are some punters that like to bet in running which means to bet while the race is in progress. During the brief duration that Living the Dream seemed spent, there was still $130 bets alive believing that Living the Dream could win. The smart punters were living the dream as they began to rake up all this sucker money.

Unfortunately for those smart punters, Living the Dream, became a living nightmare as the horse rebalanced, pushed its way through a gap and won. The trading charts on Betfair reveal that $100 changed hands at odds of 150/1 to 250/1. If that wasnt bad enough, an amount of $8 changed hands at 1000/1. In other words, about $30,000 was won and lost during this moment.

If you backed it at $3.70 you should be happy with the win. If you backed it at 1000/1, you will no doubt be enjoying a Merry Xmas!
