  • Wet tracks led to a bleak day for punters
  • One punter scored a $34,000 collect
Big Bets Post Mortem

Wet tracks punished the big bet punters in general but there were a couple who ended the day as substantial winners….

The day started well for one big bet punter who invested in HARD PRESS in the first of the day at Morphettville. The $3,000 outlay secured $2.60 fixed which turned out to be a masterful move as the two-year-old Shamexpress colt was sent out a red-hot $1.50 favourite. 

Meanwhile across the border at Caulfield, the opening event wasn’t as kind to punters as the heavily-backed SIZZLEFLY finished second to KING OF HASTINGS who also came in for support which saw him start favourite for the race.

Sizzlefly had a total of $13,500 in big bets riding on her chances while one big bet punter had $3,000 @ $4.80 on King Of Hastings. That fixed odds bet turned out for the best as the Anthony Freedman-trained gelding started a $2.50 favourite. 

The collect of the day without doubt, belonged to the big bet punter who put their hard earned on the Chris Waller-trained filly VOILA in the fourth of the day. Securing $17 fixed, the $2,000 wager saw a collect of $34,000 for the single bet. The Choisir filly came in for some late support which saw her eventually start as a $9.50 chance.

A wet Rosehill track proved to be a graveyard for punters as all big bets went down on the day. 

MR WONG had plenty of support in the opening event but he could only manage to finish sixth in a race where all three placegetters started at double-figures. The TAB reported that Mr Wong held around 70% of the pool in the race.

Meanwhile up north at the Sunshine Coast, the big hope for the day also finished out of the money. A wet track specialist, JAMAICAN RAIN had plenty of support and was sent out a hot $2.50 favourite for the Listed Glasshouse Handicap. 

However, the Manhattan Rain mare finished nearer last, more than six lengths behind the winner. Two big bets totalling $5,000 were lost on the six-year-old.
