The last in Sydney jumped at 4.30 this afternoon.

There was a bit of an issue when 2 horses lost their riders at the start in unrelated circumstances, and correct weight was delayed by 10 minutes or so while the stewards reviewed the tape and declared the favourite Machine Gun Jubs a non-runner.

The corporate bookies paid out within a few minutes of the field crossing the finish line, and TAB NSW and Victoria paid out shortly after correct weight, allowing their customers to collect and reinvest their winnings if they so wished.

Almost an hour after the race UBET still hadn’t paid out, leaving punters screaming out here at Doomben and I am sure in pubs and clubs around the state too.

Isn’t this supposed to be the 21st century?

What a goddamn joke.
