The Biggest TAB Dividends Of 2017

It depends on how you look at it but the first day of The Championships last year was either a bloodbath or bonanza for punters.

A look at the TAB’s list of the biggest thoroughbred dividends of 2017 reveals April 1 – Day 1 of The Championships – as holding five record returns for the calendar year – Trifecta, First 4, Quaddie, Place and Duet.

Overall, the biggest dividend paid out on the NSW TAB was $325,512.60 for the BIG6 at Rosehill on September 23.

“Golden Rose Day proved to be very fruitful for those lucky enough to snare a portion of the BIG6,” TAB’s Andrew Georgiou said.

“It paid upwards of $325,000 and was helped largely by Trapeze Artist’s win in the Rose which returned $42.30 on the tote.

“Day 1 of The Championships also featured in the record dividends for 2017 thanks to the Country Championship Final which was a rough result. That race alone was responsible for three records including the monster trifecta payout which nearly reached $75,000.

“The big dividends weren’t solely restricted to the city though with Hawkesbury, Grafton, Tuncurry, Wellington and Newcastle all featuring with the latter providing the highest priced winner of the year on a NSW thoroughbred race (Ardanza, $166.40).”

If you cheered home Free Standing, After All That and Not For Export in the Country Championship Final, the trifecta returned a healthy $74,791.80.

A duet on that race with Free Standing and After All That paid $766.60 while the place dividend for Not For Export was the year’s best at $30.20.

The Doncaster Mile’s First 4 of It’s Somewhat, Happy Clapper, Sense Of Occasion and Palentino resulted in a staggering $283,839.60.

And if you were shrewd enough to find Jon Snow in the Derby, Chautauqua in the TJ Smith, It’s Somewhat in the Doncaster and Waking Moment in the Adrian Knox, the Quaddie paid a healthy $88,887.40.

We’d all love to back a 100/1 winner and biggest of longshots to lob in NSW in 2017 was Ardanza who paid $166.40 when winning a maiden on debut at Newcastle back on April 8.

That dividend though pales in comparison to TAB’s biggest win dividend of the year of $617 for Tramore at a thoroughbred meeting in Ireland.
