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

  • Punters and Bookies shared the honours this week
Big Bets Post Mortem

The betting ledger was once again split with punters and bookies sharing the honours across the board on Saturday.

At Flemington, the bagmen took the honours but not before one market mover gave punters something to smile about.

They had to wait until race eight, but supporters of LAURE ME IN were left smiling as the Tony McEvoy trained gelding took out the event comfortably in the end. 

The three big bet punters in question outlaid $12,000 between them on the race favourite and in the end, weren’t disappointed.

A lot of talk this week surrounded the return of CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES who was resuming after failing in the Epsom Hcp last September. As with most first-up runners, the Bjorn Baker-trained mare was in need of the run and to the disappointment of one big bet punter she faded to finish third in the run home. 

Up at Eagle Farm, punters swarmed upon the Kris Lees-trained HIGH POWER who opened up with mid-week markets at $7.00, however come post time, was sent out a $3.90 favourite and couldn’t have been more disappointing.

Never in the hunt, the High Chaparral gelding sat near the tail of the field, and basically never improved from there. Two big bet punters shelled-out more than $8,000 between them, both securing $5.00 fixed odds, to no avail.

Most of the fun was being enjoyed by punters in Sydney however, with plenty of off big bet punters ending up as winners from the Rosehill meeting.

The day didn’t start too well for punters with several big bets going down on race favourite LJUNGBERG in the second of the day.

Four bets totalling almost $18,000 were riding on the success of the Ron Quinton-trained gelding, however he was denied victory by Vegadaze in the second of the day.

Success came along in the sixth on the program when SWEET SCANDAL made several big bet punters a little richer after crossing the line well ahead of her rivals. 

Almost $24,000 was outlaid by six big bet punters who all secured better than the $2.10 on offer as they jumped.
