Big Bets Post Mortem - See how the big bets fared on the weekend

  • Big Bet Punters clean-up on Villiers Stakes Day
Big Bets Post Mortem

Christmas came early for half a dozen big bet punters as they zeroed in on the Villiers Stakes at Randwick on Saturday and came out of it grinning like Cheshire cats.

The skies were grey but the sun shone brightly on the six punters who had their hard-earned riding on Villiers favourite Sky Boy. He ‘fell in’, a neck in front of the fast finishing Aloisia but that’s all he had to do to have those who were on him to be celebrating after the race. 

The ‘successful six’ big bet punters had a total $24,000 between them riding on the Pendragon gelding with one of those punters responsible for half that total on their own. The $12,000 wager locked in $3.90 fixed and turned into a single collect of $46,800 which would make anyone’s Christmas a little happier.

Most of the big bet action however was at Flemington and it all began with a win for one big bet punter who let their cash do the talking by backing Yes Yes Yes in the first of the day. That win could see the two-year-old colt head to the Gold Coast next month for a tilt at the Magic Millions.

The luck stayed with punters in the third on the card with two happy campers (punters) collecting when Masculino took the honours (by a whisker). 

More good fortune came the way of the big bet punters when the Darren Weir-trained Declares War won the sixth of the day. Five big bet punters had the pleasure of collecting there with a total of $13,750 invested on the three-year-old colt.

That victory however, led to the saddest story of the day for one unlucky punter who is probably still feeling the pain. 

While Declares War had many punters cheering, one big bet punter wasn’t as they saw their fancy for the race finish second to Weir’s colt. That punter had an investment of $5,000 on Naivasha at $19. Had the Starcraft mare taken the honours there, our big bet punter stood to collect a Christmas stocking with $95,000 in it, and literally all their Christmases would have come at once. A real story to tell the grand kids.
