Yes, that’s right….Sportsbet has taken 7 bets on Chiller to be the flag bearer at odds of $101 including one punter who’s placed $25 on it to happen.

“Quite clearly, we put Kitty Chiller in the market as a bit of a laugh and we were surprised as anyone to see 7 bets roll in on her to be the flag bearer,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
