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

  • A day of first race disasters in the Eastern states
Big Bets Post Mortem

There wasn’t too much joy for big bet punters over the weekend however a select few found the right way to go.

The day started badly for punters with odds-on favourite BIGBOYROY going down in the first at Doomben. Sent out a hot $1.60 elect, one punter waved goodbye to their $4,000 investment on the Chris Waller-trained colt as he finished a well beaten second behind Raay Of Dreams.

Further south, at Warwick Farm, an identical picture was being painted with another odds-on favourite going down in the first on the program. Bookies had full bags after the Gary Portelli-trained colt TIME TO REIGN was beaten out of a place.

That loss proved costly to several big bet punters who invested heavily on the two-year-old. Big Bets totalling $56,000 went west including a single bet of $28,000 @ $1.75.

The old cliché, odds-on, look on rang true just three races later when SANDBAR suffered the same fate as Time To Reign. 

Sensationally backed from $4.80 to start a $1.80 red hot favourite, the Snitzel colt finished unplaced (in a field of six). A total of $30,000 was outlaid and lost between three big bet punters, including a single bet of $13,000 at $4.40

Many punters ignored the wide draw and supported ACCESSION in the Listed Inglis Millennium. Three big bet punters outlaid just over $8,000 between them only to see their investment finish a gallant second in the 1200m event. The wide draw can’t be used as excuse as the winner (Castelvecchio) jumped from the gate next door (13).

Wins to NOBLE BOY and later in the day, CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES brought some joy to big bet punters.

Down in Melbourne, things were a little brighter at Caulfield, however not before completing a three-state (first-race) disaster with SILENTZ finishing as another unplaced favourite.

Two big bet punters both secured $3 fixed on the Snitzel gelding but as with the first-race favourites at Warwick Farm and Doomben, they were forced to wave goodbye to their investments of $4,000 and $5,000 respectively.

The punters tasted some success in the second on the card where the well supported CRACK THE CODE took out the Group Three Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m). 

Big Bets totalling $13,500 were riding on the expertise of Damien Oliver as he produced yet another copybook ride to steer the Mick Price-trained filly first past the post.
