Punters to hedge their bets

Winning the Belmont Stakes, American Pharaoh became the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes). Over ninety thousand punters who had a two dollar bet on the three-year old favourite are keeping their docket as a collector's item of the historic event. It's believed that the dockets will one day be worth over a hundred dollars to collectors.
