Melbourne Cup millionaire – punter turns $5 into $1 million on Rekindling
07 Nov 2017 | Tabcorp 

One TAB customer has had a life changing day, with Dominic from Mill Park, Victoria, winning $1 million on Rekindling at the Melbourne Cup.

The win comes as part of TAB’s Melbourne Cup millionaire promotion.

TAB account customers who placed a bet on races 1 to 4 on Tuesday at Flemington were entered into a draw, and Dominic was chosen at random.

He was then contacted and provided his tip to TAB – Rekindling, who was a $15 chance.

His entry into the draw came on the back of a $5 each way bet on Land of Plenty in race three, which ran second.

Dominic said he is still in shock.

“I started the day working so I never could have imagined this. I was laying on the couch about to have a few bets when I got the call that I won the draw. I was actually home alone so I had to call a few mates who rushed over to watch with me,” said Dominic.

Dominic said it is hard to describe how he was feeling as he watched Rekindling battle Johannes Vermeer down the straight.

“I was just numb. It’s a surreal feeling and I’m still in shock. I chose Rekindling because I liked its form overseas and its draw, but I never could have imagined this,” said Dominic.
