Man Vs Bookie

Super Tycoon helps Punters win big! 


Race 8

Punters rejoiced here. Despite the plunge on McCreery ($2.90 into $2.30) following a succession of Waller winners, Super Tycoon was backed heavily.  There were two bets of $2,000 e/w on him at $7.00 and plenty of smaller bets. And he looked very comfortable racing clear along the inside to win. McCreey was unplaced. Big win for Punters.

Race 9

Despite the winner being big odds ($26 into $21) the spoils were shared here.  Magnajoy sat outside the leader, dictated the tempo and was too strong to the line. Six horses were backed and heavily and firmed. One large bet of $2,000 on Magnajoy at $29 resulted in a big win for one Punter and meant the book was all square.



Race 3

A big result for the book as relatively unwanted Derryn came home like a train for a very good win.  Nasdex was well backed ($10,000 in 3 bets wagered on him from $7 into $3.60) all went to the book as did the Crafty Cop money. Favourite punters came undone. Crafty Cop opened at $2.70 and blew to $4.40, despite multiple $2,000 bets…and was unplaced. 

Race 8

The boom fell off Wall Street Wolf and punters were hurt as a result. He started $2.70 favourite following his 8 length win last start and several bets totaling over $10,000 at $2.90 were wagered on him. But he plodded home for 5th and it was left to $10 chance Divine Mr Artie who finished too well. Very small bets were written against him.


Punter of the Week

$2000 into $58,400!

Rosehill Race 9  Magnajoy $2,000 @ $29.20 

Punter of the week goes to one savvy gambler who risked an arm on the last at Rosehill and lived to tell the tale.

This clever punter liked 'Magnajoy' a $29 shot in Race 9 at Rosehill. Liking it so much that he unloaded $2,000 on the long-odds chance. 

Magnajoy blew most punters out of the water when it took out the final event. The Jarrod Austin-trained runner was beaten almost 11 lengths at Warwick Farm last time. But the $1600 tried horse raced on speed and kicked away under Lester Grace to land this win at Rosehill & also land a huge payday for some!

$2,000 into a massive $58,400.



End Of Season Horse Racing Industry Results

Today it’s happy birthday to all racehorses.

Each one of them clicks over a year older. And the start of a brand new season in all aspects of thoroughbred racing begins.

Today is day one of the 2016/17 Jockey’s Titles in all the states across Australia.

Similarly, for the Trainer’s Titles and Stallion Titles.

And as we look forward to the upcoming spring carnivals in both Melbourne and Sydney, and also to the new season 2YO races, let's pause momentarily and reflect on 2015/16 season.

The Stallion Title went to Winx’s old man STREET CRY narrowly from Not A Single Doubt.

SNITZEL, who met with a great deal of publicity as he challenged the all-time 2YO Siring record of 30 (which has stood for over 40 years) equaled it with four of his babies running close 2nd placings in the last week of the season.

Top 3 Shocking Moments

#1 Broncos in crisis after Roosters thrashing

The Brisbane Broncos – pre-season premiership favourites and NRL ladder leaders after 10 rounds – are in danger of slipping out of the top eight after suffering their seventh loss in nine games. The Broncos were caned 32-16 by the 15th-placed Sydney Roosters, who had won just three of their previous 18 games in 2016. After being dumped by the Broncos during the off-season, Roosters centre Dale Copley enjoyed the perfect revenge with two tries in a man-of-the-match display, while Blake Ferguson engineered one of the season’s most spectacular tries for Shaun Kenny-Dowall. The heavy loss represented the fifth time in the past seven weeks the Broncos have conceded more than 30 points.

#2 Magpies stun Eagles at the ’G

Out-of-contention Collingwood played the role of spoilers in Round 19 of the AFL, landing a devastating blow to West Coast’s top-four aspirations via a 19-point victory at the MCG on Saturday. The Magpies overturned a nine-point deficit at the end of the first quarter with a blistering five-goals-to-none second term, before the Eagles clawed back during the third quarter. But the 12th-placed Pies held their nerve in the final period to finish the stronger of the two teams, sealing the upset and consigning the Eagles to sixth spot.

Check out the enigmatic Magpies’ giant-killing effort HERE.


#3 Rampant Lions end Highlanders’ Super Rugby reign

The Lions have qualified for their first-ever Super Rugby final after trouncing the defending champion Highlanders 42-30 at Ellis Park in the second semi-final. The South African outfit ran the competition’s best defensive unit ragged, with flyhalf Elton Jantjies scoring a try and setting up three others to complement a 22-point haul, and flying wingers Ruan Combrinck and Courtnal Skosan causing havoc out wide. They now travel to Wellington for Saturday’s decider to take on the Hurricanes, who are also chasing their maiden championship.

See how the Super Rugby semis unfolded HERE.
