It was pretty easy picking the Melbourne Cup winner – just ask KIIS FM’s breakfast announcer Jane Hall!
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au offered KIIS FM breakfast hosts Matt Tilley and Jane a $500 charity bet each on the Cup and Jane plonked it on Prince Of Penzance at $101!
The result – a giant cheque for $50,500 to the Father Bob Foundation, which helps Melbourne’s needy.
“Only one percent of punters backed Prince Of Penzance so Jane Hall is a punting genius! We’re really happy that the money is going to Father Bob, who’s been helping Melbourne’s underprivileged for nearly half a century,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
