Husband and Wife at the Focus of Tabcorp Insider Trading Scandal

After a four-year investigation by Racing NSW, a professional punter was found guilty of seven charges and received a fine

Crimes related to insider trading are difficult to uncover but not impossible. A new report suggests that an experienced bettor, who received insider information from his wife, was found guilty of seven charges and received a fine as well. As reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, Nathan Snow, a professional punter who is claimed to have placed more than 3,000 wagers, was found guilty of seven charges by Racing New South Wales (NSW) and fined AU$18,000 ($11,500).

Reportedly, the professional bettor leveraged inside information provided by his wife Sally Snow, who used to hold the role of a senior trading manager at the ASX-listed betting and gaming giant in Australia, Tabcorp. Mr Show received messages from his wife, containing sensitive information about horses that are backed by professional bettors and then used this to place wagers with Bet365, Ladbrokes, Betfair and Beteasy, all rivals of Tabcorp.

Greatest Racing Crime Never Happened

The latest announcement comes after a four-year investigation led by Racing NSW. In light of the investigation, the regulator asked Ms Show to surrender her phone. Yet, she refused to provide it, asserting the law that provides privilege against self-incrimination. As a result, Ms Snow was banned from placing any wagers or attending any horse racetrack or training facility.
