    is there any other way to bet without going to TAB? hmm maybe he can just miss out (i'll cop it if his horse wins tho!)

    There is sassy but you have to set up an online account with whoever you want to bet with eg. ozbet, sportingbet, vic tab, uniTAB, nsw tab etc. - can be done on the computer if you have a credit card ... I've never done it though - off to our local tab now to put a $ on my fave horse :p .

    Glad you worked it out - probably a wise move. Our TAB was nuts lol.

    I am hoping there is good value in my $5 outlay :eek: .

    Google 'Watch Melbourne Cup 2009 live' and it will come up with lots of options.... I just tried a few, but the server was busy..
    Good Luck! :)

    I got Allez Wonder and Basaltico in the sweep at work...
