It's the day that every punter dreams of. A winning bet from every race on
On Saturday night, Sky Racing race caller and rising star
Luke Marlow, tipped all but one winner on
the ten race program at Richmond Greyhounds. Punters following
his tips with $100 win bets on the night made a tidy $1,310 profit with
winners paying as high as $4.70.
In a cruel twist, Marlow's only miss on the night in Race 3, Absolute Gunn,
ran a close second finishing only a head behind race winner Ricky
Boy. The official finishing print shows the winner Ricky Boy on the
outside finishing in front by the smallest of margins.
Marlow's performance comes after Punters

- Watching so many races every week at a track creates a strong memory about
how race tracks impact the outcome of a race.
Luke Marlow is one of the Australian racing industry's rising stars, who already
early in his career has established himself as a respected race caller across
all three codes of racing. With consistent profitable tipping results as he
showcased at Richmond Greyhounds on Saturday night, there's no doubt we'll be
listening to Luke for a long time to come.
