Big Bets Post Mortem

 

How did all the big bets finish up over the weekend ??? 

 

Despite 12 of the 29 eastern states favourites saluting, the bagmen took the honours over the weekend.

At Caulfield, punters had to wait until race five on the card before the first winning favourite arrived. After General Beau saluted, this sparked a run of three-straight favourites crossing the line in first place.

In race six, the Team Price-trained ANNAVISTO did the right thing by favourite-backers and led all the way to hang on for victory.

Big Bets of $10,000 @ $2.30 and $2,000 @ $2.30 were taken while the TAB took several late bets on the mare including, Annavisto $3,000 @ $2.20 twice, $2,600 @ $2.20, $2,000 @ $2.20 multiple times, $5,133 @ $2.15, $2,000 @ $2.15 multiple times and $2,500 @ $2.

Meanwhile at Randwick, the ‘big two’ (on the day), namely VERRY ELLEEGANT and NATURE STRIP came in for a bombardment of support.

In the Group One George Main Stakes, Chris Waller’s mare VERRY ELLEEGANT didn’t let her supporters down when she took home first prize.

Early big bets totalling more than $46,000 were placed at odds of $2 or more which proved a smart move as the mare was sent to the barriers a white-hot $1.75 elect.

The TAB copped a belting as well with bets that included, $8,000 @ $2, $15,000 @ $1.90, $6,000 @ $1.90, $5,000 @ $1.90, $10,000 @ $1.75, $4,550 @ $1.75 and $4,000 @ $1.75 multiple times.

Bookies bounced back in the Group Two Shorts when the well-supported NATURE STRIP was out-gunned (again) by the Joe Pride-trained EDUARDO who finished best to grab victory on the line.

Two big bets of $15,000 @ $2.35 and $7,000 @ $2.35 were placed early in the peace while the TAB took many bets on the day including, $2,053 @ $2, $2,000 @ $2 and $1,000 @ $2 multiple times.

Eduardo did have some loyal supporters who dished out a few dollars with the TAB. Late bets taken on the eight-year-old included, $1,000 e/w @ $6.50/$1.80, $1,000 e/w @ $6/$1.75, $1,000 @ $6 multiple time and $2,000 @ $5.50.
