Admitting he didn’t know much about any of the 24 betting agencies lining up for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup, Adelaide man Hugh Watson said he would probably just pick a name he liked, or maybe a colour.
“It’s pretty hard with so many in the race – seems like a lot more than I remember – so I’ll just pick a name I like I reckon,” Mr Watson said.
He said he had narrowed it down to a few options. “I quite like the name Centrebet. Crownbet’s got a bit of a ring to it too. I like UBet’s colours. And I used to play sport, so Sportsbet has a bit of meaning for me. Maybe I’ll put a few dollars on each of them”.
Racing industry expert James Bright said he expected all 24 agencies to win the race.
