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

Big Bets Post Mortem

Bragging rights were evenly shared on the weekend but punters yelled the loudest as the best back runners of the day got the job done.

There weren’t too many big bets at Eagle Farm on Saturday but one punter had their day made for them when LOOKS LIKE ELVIS won again at the track. The $3,000 wager locked in $4.60 which proved a bonus as the five-year-old crossed the line a $3.70 favourite.

At Randwick, they raced on the Kensington circuit and the best backed runner of the day there shined brightly. The James Cummings-trained PANDEMIC lied up to his trial form again by comfortably winning the third of the day.

As much as $6 was offered when the markets opened on Wednesday but that was quickly snapped up and the Godolphin three-year-old went to the barriers a red-hot even-money favourite.

Big bets totalling $7,000 were placed early on while the TAB reported taking bets of $15,000 @ $2.70, $10,000 @ $2.15 and $5,000 @ $2.40. 

Meanwhile, at Caulfield the Melbourne punters were having even more success where the two best backed horses at the meeting also saluted.

Race seven was the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) and the hot fancy for the event didn’t disappoint as BEGOOD TOYA MOTHER comfortably took out the event.

The Myboycharlie gelding was heavily backed and sent out at $2.60 but one lucky punter locked in $3.50 for their $3,000 investment. The TAB reported taking several big bets on the five-year-old including one of $4,000 @ $2.60.

Punters then went for the jugular in the very next race and clobbered the bagmen with solid support for MYSTIC JOURNEY to take out the Group Two P.B Lawrence Stakes (1400m) and the Tasmanian mare didn’t disappoint. 

Most big bets locked in $2 on the four-year-old mare with a total of $22,000 reportedly taken by the bagmen. The TAB didn’t escape either, taking bets of $5,000, $3010, $2,500 and several at $2,000 all @ $2.
