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

  • The ledger was split with both bagmen and punters tasting success over the weekend
Big Bets Post Mortem

The honours were pretty much shared on the weekend with bookies finishing slightly ahead, courtesy of the two biggest plunges going down.

At Flemington, the biggest plunge horse of the day was by far MASCULINO who came in for some solid support. 

Four big bet punters alone outlaid a total of $19,000 between them on the Mick Price-trained gelding who, after being sent out a hot $2 favourite, finished out of a place in the fifth race of the day.

Two big bet punters left the track a little happier after investing $8,000 between them on the Darren Weir-trained SILENTZ earlier in the day. The Snitzel gelding won comfortably in the end and was one of four favourites to collect the cash at Flemington on Saturday.

Meanwhile on the sunny Gold Coast it was Magic Millions Day and punters fared a little better in the sunshine state with several ‘money’ horses saluting.

It all began in the first of the day with the heavily supported TERMINOLOGY getting the job done for punters.

The first of a winning double for Tim Clark on the day, the Tulloch Lodge filly had two big bet punters dishing out $5,500 and cheering around 70 seconds later as she crossed the line a good length ahead of the rest.

With Tim Clark bringing up the second win of his afternoon on BOOMSARA, one big bet punter secured $5 for his $2,000 investment, seeing a $10,000 collect going their way.

 Two other punters weren’t as fortunate with their money going on race favourite OUTBACK BARBIE who finished third behind Boomsara in the Guineas. One single bet of $10,000 at $2.50 was riding on the Gollan stable filly who was gallant in defeat, beaten a head on the line.

But full honours to Chris Munce and his Spirit Of Boom gelding who (yet again) put the wide gate theory to bed.
