TAB payouts on Race 7, the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate, and the Pick 6 at Kenilworth last Saturday, were correct as declared.
Following customer queries about the TAB Win payout on the Queen’s Plate in particular and the carryover Pick 6 dividend, the betting system logs on Race 7 and the Pick 6 were thoroughly analysed and payouts re-audited.
The double check revealed nothing untoward and TAB assures customers the dividends are correct.
Trainer Justin Snaith’s charge, Jet Dark, won the Queen’s Plate at odds of 12-1, but paid R4.90 for a TAB Win as a result of sizeable bets on the colt shortly before the start. These wagers on Dark Jet collectively increased the TAB Win pool on the race by some 6%, but simultaneously resulted in the three-year-old’s payout dropping from R7.10 to R4.90.
The Pick 6, in which fields on average comprised less than nine runners, was boosted by a R3-million carryover and returned a dividend of R5,019. Tote favourites won three of the six legs.
