Mackay and Whitsunday Life
One lucky Airlie Beach resident has won big at the Melbourne Cup races.
Holed up in the Airlie Beach Hotel, Zach Murray, a manager of a hospitality venue in town, tested his luck and placed a bet on horse, Without a Fight.
A little while later he received the shock of his life when he came home with a win of $8,000.
“A pretty decent win,” is how Zach described it, having just booked himself and his partner and family a cruise ship holiday.
“We’re cruising to Vanuatu, so we’re planning on having a lot of fun and spending up big.”
