Every year, on the first Tuesday in November, Australia’s most-famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup, is run. It’s known as “the race that stops a nation”, and indeed it almost literally does – as millions of Australians interrupt their day to watch the race. Office workers stop to crowd into the boardroom to watch the race on television; shoppers stop outside television screens in department store windows; restaurants and hotels have special Melbourne Cup events; and ordinary Australians who don’t usually bet on anything make a once-a-year exception for the Melbourne Cup.
For those keeping score at home, that’s today!
In the weeks leading up to it, the Australian media becomes obsessed with the Melbourne Cup. And one of the people they turn to for his opinion is one of my clients, Max Hitchins. And why not? His record is impressive. In 21 of the past 23 years, he’s picked the winner in his top six; and in 13 of those years, he has successfully predicted the actual winner.
I featured Max in my book Fast, Flat and Free, as the perfect example of somebody who has specialised in a particular niche market. Every year he publishes an e-book with information about the race, including his predictions. He has thousands of fans who buy the e-book and use his insights to place their bet – for fun or profit – each year.
If you’d like to be one of them this year, it’s not too late! Grab yourself a copy of the e-book at pickthecupwinner.com.au.
And good luck for the big race!
