Big Bets Post Mortem

It was a favourite’s day and the punters pounced, leaving the bagmen reeling as the big money horses saluted. 

At Flemington, it didn’t take long for the big bet punters to make their mark on the day’s proceedings once HEIRBORN saluted in the second of the day.

Starting at the generous odds of $3.80, punters swooped with some last-minute big bets. One bet of $5,000 @ $3.90 and another of $3,600 @ $3.80 were placed earlier in the week, while the TAB reported taking bets of $6,000 @ $3.90, $2,000 @ $2.90 and an odd each-way bet of $4,500 & $8,576 @ $3.80 / $1.70.

The red-hot race six favourite, ASSERTIVE APPROACH was given a start and a beating by the $8 chance The Inevitable. Some big bets fell over there with a total of $11,000 outlaid on the Team Hawkes gelding who held 57% of the market with the TAB

Punters didn’t have to wait long to recoup their losses however, with odds-on favourite MY PENDANT getting the job done in the next race. The lightly-raced Pins mare gave backers a fright however, only grabbing Special Diva right on the line.

Big bets of $3,000 @ $2 and $4,000 @ $2.10 were taken which turned out to be a good move as the mare was sent out at $1.80. The TAB also took big bets of $3,750 @ $1.80, $3,000 @ $1.80, $4,000 @ $1.75, $2,200 @ $1.75 and several bets of  $2,000 @ $1.75. 

Meanwhile, at Rosehill the pattern was very similar where four favourites saluted, including the two biggest backed on the day.

Again, it was race two where punters first struck, after HAUT BRION HER did it comfortably in the end. 

Big bets totalling $10,000 were riding on the Chris Waller-trained mare as she made it four wins from five starts. The TAB also took a wager of $3,000 @ $1.65.

Then came the ‘crunch’ for bookies when the day’s best backed runner ALIZEE got the job done in race four.


Godolphin mare - Alizee

Big bets totalling more than $44,000 were taken, most at $1.50 on the Godolphin mare. The TAB suffered a similar bombardment with bets of $10,000 @ $1.55, $4,000 @ $1.55, $6,000 @ $1.50, $5,000 @ $1.40, $12,000 @ $1.30, $9,500 @ $1.30 and $5,000 @ $1.30 taken. 

Things turned a little sour for punters in the next race when LUCICELLO could only manage third place.

One big bet of $2,000 @ $4 was taken while the TAB reported taken one bet of $10,000 @ $3.80 and another of $3,000 at the same quote.

There were a handful of punters who fared better however, as they outlaid their cash on the winner, DAWN PASSAGE.

One big bet of $2,200 @ $4.20 was placed while the TAB took bets of $1,000 @ $4 and another of $1,000 @ $3.90

The last race of the day had mixed results with bets taken on both race favourite CINQUEDEA and THE AVENGER. Backers of Cinquedea drew the short straw, finishing second behind The Avenger.

One big bet of $3,200 @ $1.90 was taken on the favourite while the TAB took another wager of $7,000 @ $2 on the Team Freedman-trained gelding.

One punter covered The Avenger for $1,500 @ $7 to end the day on a good note. Two TAB bets finished in similar fashion. One bet of $3,800 @ $3.80 was placed while another scooped the pool with a bet of $9,000 @ $4.40.
