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

  • Doomben: A $4,000 bet comes off
  • Three bets totalling $13,000 turn to gold for punters at Rosehill
  • A $20,000 place bet goes down at $1.10

The bagmen won the weekend (on a points decision) but some punters ended the day with plenty of extra cash in their pockets.

At Caulfield, early favourite CAN’T BE DONE was subject to a late betting drift. After opening at $2.70 on Wednesday, he was sent out at $3.50 but finished second behind Star Surprise. One punter had $3,200 @ $2.90 on the Danny O’Brien gelding. The TAB reported taking a bet of $5,000 @ $5.50 on third placegetter LADY LOIRE from the Lindsay Park stable.

The tide turned for punters in race six of the day when TAVIRUN saluted for the Bussutin & Young team. Three punters outlaid $2,000 each on the Tavistock three-year-old with one big bet punter locking in $3.30 for his investment. The gelding was sent out a firm $2.80 favourite.

At Doomben, one big bet punter got his money’s worth as they patiently waited until race eight on the card. A bet of $4,000 was outlaid on PIPPIE securing odds of $2.50. A wise move as the Written Tycoon filly started a white-hot $1.50 pick.

In the same event, three big bet punters went with the Les Kelly-trained MUSICAL GENIUS, securing fixed odds of $4.40 or better. However, a big drifter in the market on the day, the $8 chance finished a well beaten 10th in the race.

At Rosehill, the day got off to a solid start for one big bet punter at least. A bet of $5,000 @ $2.80 was invested on SPEND who won, after giving backers a real fright in the last 50 metres.

Punters rallied in the next event and gave the bagmen a real belting when the Godolphin gelding PHAISTOS got the cash as a $3 favourite. One punter had $5,000 @ $2.50 while two other big bets of $4,000 @ $2.90 and $4,000 @ $2.70 were also placed. 

The TAB reported huge losses on SPIRITUAL PURSUIT who started a very short $1.55 favourite in race five on the card. The Snitzel filly finished eight lengths from the winner. One bet of $10,000 @ $1.65 and another ‘place’ bet of $20,000 @ $1.10 went west on the three-year-old.
