Big Bets Post Mortem

 

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

 

While the ratio of winning favourites improved (slightly), bookies still got the better of proceedings on Saturday, although not before having to pay out on a few well-backed winners.

Nine favourites found their way to the line in first place on Saturday. Three at Eagle Farm, four at Randwick and two more at Sandown (Hillside).

Up north, it was Stradbroke day at Eagle Farm with the big race result bringing little joy to most punters.

Race favourite VEGA ONE finished an agonising second, beaten half a length by the Ocean Park mare, TOFANE.

Just the one Big Bet of $1,000 @ $6.50 was reported on the Tony Gollan-trained galloper but a swag of smaller bets saw him greet the starter a $4.60 punter’s elect.

One of the best backed runners in the race was former North Queensland galloper THE HARROVIAN who had plenty of support in the race.

Big Bets of $1,750 @ $8.50 and $3,950 @ $8.50 were on in early betting while the TAB reported taking multiple bets of $1,000 @ $10 on the day.

Plenty more were specked as well, including MR QUICKIE who had one big bet investment of $4,000 @ $9.50 riding with him.

Meanwhile, bookies took a hammering with a wave of bets going onto the JJ Atkins favourite CONVERGE who shone brightly on the day, taking out the Group One event by more than three lengths.

Big bets of note were, $6,250 @ $3.70, $5,000 @ $3.50, $8,000 @ $3.30 and $2,000 @ $3.70 had bookies running for cover as the Frankel juvenile pasted his rivals in the big event.

The comprehensive victory saw his price more than halve in the Golden Rose, now a $6 elect with Sportsbet.

South of the border, there was still some interest in the Randwick meeting.

One punter struck early in the week and had $1,000 @ $15 on CASINO KID. A smart move as the Casino Prince gelding was sent out a $6 favourite and clobbered them, winning by more than two lengths.

In race four on the card, one big bet punter shelled-out $1,300 @ $1.95 on race favourite GRAVINA which turned their day into a profitable one, collecting $2,535 for that investment.
