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

  • Punters fared poorly on a day that belonged to Winx
  • A last-minute bet on the mighty mare broke all records 
Big Bets Post Mortem

The day belonged to Winx, and no one else, as punters ended up on the wrong side of the ledger.

Win and win she did with betting agencies ‘still’ shelling out every time she hits the track. Last weekend saw a mammoth number of payouts with a ‘record’ making last-minute bet taken by TAB.com.

As the horses entered the mounting yard, TAB.com reported the last-minute bet coming in for the mighty mare. The record-equalling bet of $250,000 was squashed by another punter who outlaid a cool $280,000 for their net collect of $22,400.

The total amount of money invested on the Waller-trained superstar was far too much to report an accurate count however TAB.com did report taking a total of just over $2.8 million (fixed-odds win bets). 

Putting aside all the glamour of the record-breaking 23rd Group One win by Winx, the skies were quite gloomy for our big bet punters. 

One bold punter showed a lot of confidence when outlaying $4,000 on $21 chance BOLD ENDEAVOUR at Doomben. The Garnett Taylor-trained gelding did finish fifth however he crossed the line five lengths behind the winner, justifying his starting price.

Meanwhile at Randwick, only one big bet (other than the Winx brigade of bets) was successful when DREAMFORCE took out the fifth race of the day. That punter invested $2,000 @ $3.50 while the Fastnet Rock gelding jumped at the generous odds of $4.20.

Down at Flemington, lady luck wasn’t shining too much on big bet punters either with only three successful bets (two on the same horse) coming off. 
The first winning smile came in race two when the Robert Hickmott-trained SCHABAU saluted as a $1.50 favourite. One big bet punter got in early and locked in $2.05 for their $3,000 investment.

Then, in the very next race, SHE’S SO HIGH brought joy to two big bet punters when she comfortably won the Listed Bob Hoysted Hcp. One punter locked in $3 fixed for their $2,000 bet while the Mick Price-trained mare was sent out a very warm $2.30 favourite. 

TAB.com also reported a lot of support for the mare with six individual bets totalling just over $17,000 being wagered.

One of the biggest losses on the weekend rested with RINGERDINGDING who finished fourth in the Group One Australian Guineas. One big bet punter invested $20,000 @ $7.50 while TAB.com reported that the Sebring colt was the best backed runner in the race with numerous smaller bets also placed on him.
