Another tough month for most punters in August. However there wasn't a shortage of outstanding profit makers from the vast list of Australia's racing media, professional punters and others whose tips are posted at theGreatTipOff.com.
The six awards covering the top three place getters for both cash profit made and profit on turnover (POT), were split evenly between the racing media and punters. With two life-long profit makers appearing yet again in these top three spots.
He is the two time winner of Tipster of the Year, and has amassed countless Tipster of the Month awards over the six years that he has tipped at theGreatTipOff.com.
And now, with a tad under $26k profit amassed from $100 win bets, he claims yet another best of the month award.
While only tipping the one winner from 17 tips during the month, which paid a tasty $38.40, his record shows that he is capable of doing this with enough consistency to be one of the few Australians to earn the title professional punter. His August effort represented 126% POT
Less than 2 percentage points behind in second place was country racing journalist Ben Walker. Working for national broadcaster Sky Racing, Ben tipped six winners at average odds of $9.33 from 25 tips posted during August for an outstanding 124% POT.
The third place getter was Thoroughbred Racing Northern Territory CEO and race caller for the Sky Racing network, Andrew O'toole. O'toole cleaned up for punters at Darwin's annual carnival.
Tipping 8 winners from the 16 races at Fannie Bay over the two day carnival gave him a smashing 99% POT from his 50% strike rate.
