Rosanna Roces’s winning money turned into dust after an off-track betting station in Tandang Sora, Quezon City, refused to hand her the P20,000 for failing to properly place a bet on a winning horse.
An aggravated Rosanna Roces berated and mocked a teller of an off-track betting station located in Tandang Sora, Quezon City, after she failed to collect her supposed winning money.
According to GMA News, the former sexy star was fuming mad after the teller identified as Letty Labay failed to register her bet on what turned out to be the winning horse. Rosanna, who is also known as Osang, could have won a handsome amount of P20,000.
Letty, however, argued that she refused to register Osang’s stake simply because the actress only asked a bettor to place a bet on her behalf without even handing any payment.
“Bawal ho ang paki sa amin,” explained Letty to GMA reporter Oscar Oida. “Kasi kung may pera ‘tsaka tataya kahit sino pa diyan, kahit kung ano, hindi ko naman siya kilala e, ‘tapos through telephone, ‘tapos hindi pa niya sa akin tinawag [kundi] sa ibang tao,” she added.
During the commotion, Osang threatened a GMA-7 cameraman who was busy documenting the entire incident. Venting her anger towards the news crew, Osang furiously asked for the camera to be turned off. She even went down from her car to confront the cameraman while being pacified by some bystanders.
