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

  • Bookies took the honours at Doomben while punters took the gold down south
Big Bets Post Mortem

It was all about, location, location, location on the weekend and as a punter, the place to be certainly wasn’t Doomben.

The three best backed runners of the day ran around at Doomben and all three left the big bet punters scratching their heads.

The rot began in race five where there were high expectations for the unraced two-year-old filly JUST ZERENE to explode onto the scene by winning the BJ McLachlan Stakes, and thus qualifying for a start in the Magic Millions in two weeks time. 

Alas, it wasn’t to be as she blew the start and never recovered, taking down some very big bets with her. A total of $26,000 (including a single bet of $10,000) were lost on the Zoustar filly. 

Then in the very next race, our big bet punters had just as much confidence in the Tony Gollan-trained OUTBACK BARBIE, to overcome her wide draw and take out the Group Three Vo Rogue Plate (1350m), but again punters finished on the losing team there as well. Four big bet punters outlaid $8,400 between them, only to be left empty handed after the race.

Then along came The Buffering (1350m) where hot favourite VICTOREM was also expected to take care of proceedings, however, as was the case for most of the day at Doomben, he too was unable to bring joy to the wealth of bets placed on his success.

Another five big bet punters had $22,000 (including a single $10,000 investment) riding in the saddle along with jockey Dale Smith but a last to first effort from Sold For Song spoiled that party.

But it wasn’t all doom and gloom for punters, especially if you were south of the border. Our big bet punters could do no wrong at Randwick where all wagers turned to gold. 

Among them was the heavily-backed MISTER SONGMAN who, in early markets was over $3.00 but punters soon tore that to pieces and sent him out a raging hot favourite at $1.55.

Three big bet punters invested over $20,000 on the Tulloch Lodge gelding who won like an odds-on favourite should, putting seven lengths on the field. One punter alone invested $10,000 and secured $3.10 fixed in early markets.

Meanwhile, further south at Moonee Valley, life was just as tough for the bagmen with big bet punters also faring well on the day.  

Magic Millions hopeful, YES YES YES enjoyed a comfortable victory to the joys of one punter who locked in $2.50 for their $2,000 investment. Nice work considering the Darren Weir-trained colt was sent out a $1.85 elect.

Other winners that big bet punters cashed in on included KHARTOUM and MISS NORWAY who saluted as a $3.30 favourite.
