Big Bets Post Mortem

Punters again got the better of the bagman as the best backed runners took the honours on the weekend.

While single bets at the Gold Coast, Morphettville and Belmont Park went down, there was plenty to cheer about at Randwick and one very happy punter at Moonee Valley stole the limelight as well.

No big bets were reported for the first at Randwick but punters knew where to put their money as CHARLOTTE’S HEART was sensationally backed in from $21 to start at $9.50 and the money was good as the Brett Cavanough-trained mare cruised to victory.

Punters didn’t have to wait too long before striking another blow with OUR CANDIDATE who made it look easy in winning the Gold Coast Turf Club Trophy (2400m). One big bet of $5,000 @ $2.15 and another of $3,000 @ $2 turned out to be winners while the TAB took several $2,000 bets on the Kris Lees-trained five-year-old.

Just when the bagmen thought it was safe to go back into the ring, along came the biggest backed runner of the day and served up a killing blow. Odds-on favourite LIBERTINI won the Group Two Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) like all red-hot fancies should, putting more than two lengths on the field and clocking 1:07 in the process.

The three-year-old filly had enormous support from punters with a total of $29,000 in big bets taken. The TAB didn’t escape the onslaught either, reporting bets of $10,000, $5,000 and $3.000 all @ $1.70, while further bets of $14,000, $6,500, $5,000 and $2,000 were also taken @ $1.50.

Down south at Moonee Valley, things weren’t quite as grim for bookies, however they still felt the pinch when ALGANDON MISS won the fourth of the day. Big bets of $5,000 and $2,000 both locked in $3.40 while the TAB took one bet of $3,000 at $3.30.

Earlier in the day, one lucky punter showed that not all winners have to be in single figures. One big bet of $1,000 @ $22 was taken on SASSY SALITAGE which was as good as a lottery win as the Greg Eurell-trained filly was sent out a $6.50 second elect and did the job comfortably in the end.
