Backing The Outsider

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:40 pm on 13 February 2017

If you're a little sick of the low return of investment you get from the banks, then our next guest may have some profitable, but risky advice. Retired Taranaki resident, Carol Doyle, took a five per cent share in a horse racing syndicate.... and it paid off. The horse, Melody Belle, was the outsider for the Karaka Million race for two-year-olds. But she upset the favourites in January, to win at Ellerslie, in one of the country's most profitable races.
