Record betting on Caulfield Cup at TAB

6:44 am on 20 October 2009

The New Zealand TAB is looking forward to Melbourne Cup Day on 3 November after attracting record betting figures for last Saturday's Caulfield Cup.

For the first time, ever more than $1 million was wagered on the first leg of the Melbourne Spring Cups double - an increase of more than 10% on last year's turnover.

The race was won by Viewed, who won the Melbourne Cup last year.
