For starters, he's won his bet before the horses even leave the stalls thanks to a unique 'rebate' system he uses.
The secretive Australian – nicknamed the 'Loch Ness Monster' because he is so rarely seen – has used the scheme so well he is now worth £333million.
Not afraid to bet big and spend big, Ranogajec has bought a flat in the world's most expensive apartment block.
He drives a Lamborghini Aventador with a starting price of £270,000 and has a multi-million pound property empire.
Basically, don't expect to see him down your local bookies during Glorious Goodwood this week.
Thanks to his genius success on the horses, Ranogajec has been able to live a life of incredible luxury.
