TAB put a hefty $500k Turbo boost on Saturday’s races

Spring Racing season officially kicked off last weekend, and just 7 days into it TAB came to the table with a massive $500,000 Terminating Turbo Pick6.

“This will really put the Turbo into Turbo, with the final leg scheduled to run just 70 minutes after the first,” said Michael Dore, the TAB’s Head of Race Betting, in announcing the cranked up Turbo Pick6.

“Because it’s terminating we’re paying this $500,000 out, so punters will want to make sure they’ve got their tickets to be part of it.”

Whilst a Turbo is always quick, Saturday’s Terminating Turbo Pick6 will be staged across all 3 domestic gallop meetings at Ellerslie, Wanganui and Riccarton- and for the first time you can take your bet for the Pick6 by purchasing your ticket today!

Visit or your local TAB - our computer will select the horses for you in each of the 6 races, or choose them yourself.

You don’t need to know anything about horses to take home the $500,000 that must be won.

The first leg jumps at 3.36pm and everything should be tied up by 4.46pm. Just over an hour and someone will walk away $500,000 richer!
