Big Bets Post Mortem

A light sprinkling of winners saved the day from being another total disaster for big bet punters on the weekend.

The big bets up north on the Gold Coast never eventuated as the last three races were abandoned due to an electrical storm hitting the course. That put paid to all the interest in MISHANI HUSTLER and MR MARBELLOUZ who were the best two backed runners on the Queensland track for the day.


South of the border, conditions weren’t much better where the Rosehill meeting was run on a heavy 10 where the wet track didn’t play too much into the results as six of the nine favourites were successful.

This was where big bet punters enjoyed the most success and it all began with COSMIC FORCE who was a weekend market mover. Opening at $6 in early markets, the Snowden-trained colt was sent out a $3.50 favourite and didn’t he relish the going. 

He won more like a Winx-priced winner, putting seven lengths on his Pago Pago rivals. Big bets of $2,500 @ $5, $2,500 @ $4.60 and $2,000 @ $6 were placed before the surge came. TAB also reported bets of $3,400 @ $3.60 and $3,000 @ $3.60 on the two-year-old.

Punters struck again in the very next race where another market mover comfortably got the job done. VERRY ELLEEGANT opened at $4.60 in early markets but lined-up a hot favourite at $2.30. One big bet punter hit the bagmen early and locked in $4.20 for their $5,000 investment while the TAB reported a single bet of $3,000 @ $2.40.

Whilst I AM SERIOUS let down big bet punters finishing unplaced in the Coolmore Classic, another market mover saluted in the next when FIFTY STARS won the Group Two Ajax stakes.

Backed in from $4.80 to start a warm $2.90 favourite, the Lindsay Park four-year-old did enough to get the decision. One bet of $5,000 @ $3.80 and another of $2,000 @ $4.40 turned into collects while the TAB reported one bet of $5,000 @ $3 was placed amongst several others.


At Flemington it was mostly bad news for punters where only two favourites were successful all day.

The day begun badly for punters where the heavily supported CLARICE CLIFFS finished out of a place as a $1.95 favourite. Big Bets totalling $13,000 were lost on the Greg Eurell-trained mare. The TAB reported bets of $15,000, $9,000 and $5,000 @ $2 as well.

Most of the money was invested on the feature race of the day being the All-Star Mile with most of the money going on the Tasmanian filly MYSTIC JOURNEY who gave backers no cause for alarm.

One big bet of $5,000 @ $4.50 was riding on the filly while TAB reported a late bet taken of $10,000 @$3.80. One punter went all out and had $20,000 the place @ $1.60 which proved a safe bet in the end.

 HAPPY CLAPPER and HARTNELL both came in for attention with the TAB taking bets of $11,000 @ $4.40 and $10,000 @ $4.20 on Happy Clapper.
