THE attentions of Typhoon Sibyl and an anticipated rush for Triple Trio riches have led the Jockey Club to extend the betting deadline until early afternoon today. Off-course betting on the popular Triple Trio normally ends in OCB centres on the night before racing but that has now been extended until 2 pm today. 'Primarily, it is because some off-course betting centres were opened later than usual today because of typhoon signal No 8. That was not lowered until 11.30 am,' said Jockey Club information secretary Wilson Cheng last night. High interest in the 'get rich quick' bet has been further galvanised by the massive payout of over $13 million which went to three separate punters on Sunday. And there is a whopping carryover of $12 million to tonight's Triple Trio pool at Sha Tin. Despite the added time for betting today, Cheng strongly advised punters to get in early.
