Turning $4 into $78 grand!

How do you turn $4 into more than $78,000? Simple - take the same $2 four-leg multi twice with TattsBet and wait for your quartet of winners to come in at Flemington and Rosehill.

That's what happended on Saturday when 'customer x' invested his two little gold coins, which these days wouldn't even buy you a hamburger.

It started with Sir John Hawkwood, which was $26 on TattsBet Fixed Odds Betting in Flemington Race 2, a BM 90 over 2000m . Peter Moody's six-year-old UK import did the right thing winning by more than two lengths with Ben Melham in the saddle.

Next up, it was San Diego in a BM 85 Handicap (1350m) at Rosehill. After a gem of a ride by James McDonald, John O'Shea's four-year-old got up on the line to record his third win from nine starts. Happy days for our intrepid multi player because he was on at $14!

Then it was back to Flemington, where 'customer x' had $728 riding on Gai Waterhouse's Wandjina in the Group 3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m). Under hard riding from Damien Oliver, Wandjina narrowly held out former Perth horse Disposition. Following a couple of scratchings, the winner's fixed priced was $8.93. Still, that meant there was $6,501.04 riding on Hallowed Crown at $6 in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes over 1400m at Rosehill.

With Hugh Bowman coursing inside of rivals, the Bart and James Cummings' trained youngster recorded his fifth win from six starts, first up after his only defeat in the Roman Consul Stakes last October. 

Eureka! 'Customer x' had made $39,006.24 for the $2 outlay and doubled it with another gold coin on the same multi, ultimately turning $4 into $78,012.48!!!!!!
