Local Maiden Gully man Red Cordial will rack up his 500th consecutive visit to the TAB this Saturday.
For the past 9 years, Mr Cordial has spent his Saturdays having a punt on the ponies, even during the lockdowns.
The 79-year-old man shared the exciting news this morning with his workmates at the Clag factory in Strath Heights.
His mate Spiro Waterpolos has joined him for the last 20 Saturdays but gets into trouble with his wife for being at the TAB.
“Me and Spiro have never been able to pick Melbourne Cup winner. I’m only in it for the fun anyway.”
