Picone Brothers Field Side-By-Side At Bingara Cup Raceday

By Bill Poulos

It is a sight not often seen on a racetrack in the bush, but bookmaking brothers Terry, Phillip and Chris Picone made a rare fraternal appearance on Saturday, fielding alongside one another on the local races at the Bingara Cup meeting.

Terry Picone, who usually fields on the away meetings at metropolitan and provincial tracks, crossed the punting divide at Bingara to join Phillip and Chris and take on punters betting on local runners at the popular once-a-year meeting.

“We all took bets on the local races one day at Inverell a few years ago, but it is not something we do often,” Terry said.

Between them, the brothers have more than 100 years’ satchel-swinging experience, calling the odds and defying punters on a weekly basis.

It is a legacy handed down from their grandfather Jack Picone and their father John, who, with uncles Bruce and Bob Picone, established a bookmaking behemoth known as The Big Four back in the 1940s.
