Sportingbet Take $30,000 & $40,000 Bets For Hay List To Win Newmarket Handicap, $100,000 On Streama
The big money has arrived for Hay List in the Newmarket Handicap with Sportingbet Australia taking a pair of enormous bets on the champion sprinter.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said Hay List had been easy early in the week but as soon as he got out to $4.40, punters had unloaded.
“Punters were betting around Hay List early in the week with good money coming for Rain Affair and Bel Sprinter but punters are definitely back with the favourite now,” Sullivan said.
“We took a bet of $30,000 at $4.40 and another of $40,000 at $4.20 and punters are still backing him.
“He is the class runner in the race and punters clearly thought he got to the right price after drifting from $3.40 to $4.40 early in the week.”
Sullivan said that while Hay List was clearly the best backed, there had been money for a number of other runners in an extremely open race.
“Bel Sprinter, Rain Affair and Foxwedge have all been well supported, while there has also been money for roughies King’s Rose, Temple of Boom and Master of Design,” he said.
In other races at Warwick Farm in Sydney, Sportingbet Australia have taken a bet of $100,000 at $1.85 about Streama to win the Group 2 Patinack Farm Surround Stakes. The bet has seen Streama’s price crash into $1.65
