As champion jockey Robert Thompson closes in on a remarkable 4000th career winner, discussion has turned to which month the ageless hoop will reach the magical milestone. Thompson’s incredible tally of winners currently sits at 3973.
Online bookmaker Sportingbet has opened a special market and installed May as the $1.90 favourite in front of April at $3.
“Those odds take into account that he’s ridden around 10 winners a month over the last five years so barring injury or suspension, May looks the most likely,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
“Anyone that thinks Thompson might hit a flat spot can get $10 for July or there’s $41 on offer for him to hit a purple patch and ride his 4000th by the end of March.”
All bets will be refunded if Thompson does not ride his 4000th winner by the end of July.
