Group member Jonny Kiddo says it's "probably New Zealand's greatest sporting atmosphere".

The syndicate has more than a thousand members and its founder has been using the powers of social media and savvy investment to bring a new generation of punters to the game.

The Boys Get Paid group is gearing up for history at Ellerslie racecourse tomorrow.

The group has picked the two-year-old Karaka Million winner for the past two years and is now looking for its hat-trick.

Tomorrow more than 400 will be filling the stands at the country's richest race day.

Contemplating what could be the biggest ever wager on a single race, $100,000 if the odds drift in their favour.

Boys Get Paid founder Luke Kemeys says it's not just a boys club either.

"Just like City Fitness you don't have to live in the city to go there - plenty of girls involved and there's some coming on Saturday, which is awesome, and plenty of them in the punters club as well," he told 1 NEWS.
