Big Bets Post Mortem

Several big bet punters said farewell to Winx in style as they cashed in on her 33rd straight victory.

The scene was set, the atmosphere electric, “Bowmen said go, and Winx went whoosh”. The mighty mare was carrying a bank vault of cash on her and she did not disappoint, fulfilling the fairy-tale of a lifetime. 

Reported big bets totaling a massive $1,267,517 was outlaid on WINX for the last time, including an odd amount of $246,917 which alone saw a return of $261,732 which is a profit of just under $15,000, enough to cover the next family holiday.

TAB reported a few late investments which in total eclipsed over $1 million. One single bet of $550,000 was taken, which became the biggest ever single bet taken on the mare. Other bets of $266,000 and another odd amount of $271,540 were also wagered. TAB also reported that Winx had just under $4 million invested on her to win her third-straight Queen Elizabeth Stakes. 

The other big win for big bet punters was seeing VERRY ELLEEGANT take out the Australian Oaks. Bets of $6,000 and $8,000 fixed at $1.80 were placed on the three-year-old filly.

TAB reported other bets of $5,850 @ $2, $5,000 @ $2 (twice), $4,000 @ $2 (twice) and $3,000 @ $2 were taken on race day.

One other lucky big bet punter had a mammoth collect on Saturday. A single bet of $13,000 was placed on the Lindsay Park colt POWER SCHEME at the juicy odds of $7.50. The Fiorente colt got the job done in a photo finish, holding off the fast finishing Foxborough and landing the punter a $97,500 payday.
