A group of blokes were standing around in the Get the News & Lotto Newsagency, in Williamstown, one Friday, discussing the next days horce race meeting at Flemington. Owners Ron and John then discovered that 3 of their 4 customers at that moment were named Frank. Somebody suggested this was a sign from the racing gods for an omen bet, so somebody grabbed the form guide and went searching for a horse with "Frank" in it's name. They found one called Frankiefourfingers, running in race six at Warick Farm that afternoon. As they discussed a possible bet, the one customer in the shop not named Frank raised his hand. He had no thumb on his left hand. Everybody in the shop promptly put in $5 each and they plonked it on the nose at $7.50 for a win. Frankiefourfingers duly won the race to loud applause in the newsagency.
