MR. H. W. DEDMAN, the Victorian punter who walked off Flemington racecourse last Saturday winning £20,200 from an original investment of £2, was photographed in a Sydney hotel bar on Wednesday. He is in Sydney on business. Mr. Dedman had an armored car waiting for him when he left the Victorian Club on Monday after collecting his win in rolls of £10 and £5 notes.
