    David Murphy has done it again and I am kicking myself as I noted that he had two long shots drawn 1 tonight
    Nansastar wins R1 and pays $66.60
    I looked at it and thought how is he going to improve her enough in 4 days to win this final after she drew 1 in the heat and faded

    I have highlighted him before Pat - that is why I was mindful of him tonight but the 4 days seemed impossible

    Honourable mention for Good time Slater paying $87 at Penrith. His previous win to that was at Penrith almost 12 months to the day.

    Here's a Bendigo District winner that scored at VERY Long Odds:
    Longest Priced winner ever at the Royal Showgrounds.

    The info is from well known country race vet Greg Hargeaves and verified by John Peck, and The Age Trotting Calendar of that year

    In 1949, Col Stevenson from Fenton's Creek near Wedderburn was working as a builder at Mt Gambier.
    His brother Ted had a pacer, Miss Fenton (with form reading 0 0 0) racing at the Royal Showgrounds Melbourne .
    Col chartered a light plane to fly to Melbourne to get to the Showgrounds ( no TAB or legal off course betting then !).
    He put his money on.
    Miss Fenton was 100 to 1 with the bookmakers, BUT paid 609 to 1 on the on-course tote. Col collected more than half the tote pool.

    There is a house on a farm at Fenton's Creek that was built with the proceeds.
