Three Melbourne Cup punters land massive returns with winning trifecta

Rekindling defeats Johannes Vermeer and Max Dynamite

Three Melbourne Cup punters landed a massive return each after picking out the trifecta in the 2017 running of the Race That Stops A Nation at Flemington.

The three separate customers of Sportsbet all had Irish-trained trio Rekindling, Johannes Vermeer and Max Dynamite among their selections for the trifecta in the race.

One customer place a $50 boxed trifecta and secured a $151,255 collect at Sportsbet.

Another placed their boxed trifecta for $30 and scooped a return of $100,433.

The third Sportsbet customer didn't need to box their selections as they picked out the trifecta straight up with Rekindling beating Johannes Vermeer and Mac Dynamite home. The $20 bet earned them $60,502.

“Hats off to those punters, Rekindling was an unlikely hero but no doubt they’ll celebrate their wins for a long time to come,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
