Over $57k refunded on Day 1 of The Championships

Sportingbet punters were refunded over $57,000 on Day 1 of The Championships. This was courtesy of the cash back offer if your horse runs 2nd in ANY of the races during The Championships.

Here is a review of the day at Randwick and the horses who qualified for the cash back offer.

The Cummings trained Hallowed Crown may have been crowned the winner of the Group 3 Kindergarten to kick off The Championships but punters who backed the 2nd horse Washington Heights got their CASH BACK too!

We reckon RGIII will be stoked & will be throwing Washington Heights into his blackbook after a big run. Kaepernick also failed to run a place so bragging rights go to you RGIII!

RG3

What an impressive win by Gypsy Diamond & James McDonald in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes eating up the mud with every stride!

Tough Mudder we have a contender…

Tough Mudder

Punters who backed Casino Dancer got their cash back and will have an extra incentive to dance their way off to the Cas! It’s not everyday you get to celebrate coming second.

The PJ Bell Stakes was won by Politeness and there was nothing polite about the victory. Craig Williams took her to the outside and she went straight past her rivals without saying excuse me or even giving a wave.

Punters were still be rewarded for their endeavours with cash back on Cosmic Endeavour after taking out second place in the Bell Stakes.

The Chairman’s Handicap went to The Offer and as racecaller Mark Shean said “Good on ya Tommy”  A great moment for the Berry family & The Offer should be very hard to beat in the Sydney Cup.

Tremec was very gallant in second place and punters who backed him got their cash back.

Good on ya Tommy!

Tommy Berry-1366446427_n

Our promos guy was doing it tough by this stage with five races to go!

Pulling hair out

Peggy Jean & Nash Rawiller combined to take out the first Group 1 (Sires’) of The Championships.

It was a two horse war down the straight between Peggy Jean and Scratch Me Lucky with Peggy Jean getting the upper hand in the closing stages.

There was no need for the punters on Scratch Me Lucky to reach for these…

Scratchie

 It was cash back again for second! Even Peggy was happy for the Scratch Me Lucky punters.

Criterion was backed off the map to win the Australian Derby and thanks to a perfect ride by Hughie Bowman took it out despite a fight from Tupac Amaru in 2nd and Hooked in 3rd.

Punters who jumped on the Darley runner received their cash back after a very gallant 2nd in very tough conditions.

This was just one of the many punters on Criterion…

Scrooge McDuck

Did we witness a win by the horse of the year? Lankan Rupee smashed his rivals in the T.J. Smith and if you believe in karma then Froggy Newitt deserves it in bucket loads.

All the talk and focus was on the winner but Rebel Dane ran second. This particular punter was happy with cash back for second… Rebel Yell!

Rebel+Yell+Billy+Idol

This man can take a bow… First 4 in the Doncaster Mile

Chris Waller

An amazing training effort by Chris Waller to train the first 4 in the Doncaster Mile. Sacred Falls, Royal Descent, Weary and Hawkspur were the first four past the post.

Anyone who backed Royal Descent in the Donnie got their cash back after barrier 20 ultimately proved her downfall as she finished in second place behind Sacred Falls and Zac Purton.

Tiger Woods would be filthy about missing The Masters but getting cash back after Missvon ran 2nd in the Adrian Knox Stakes would put a smile on not only his face but the faces of all the punters (We’re not sure if she’s named after Lindsay Vonn but we’ll go with that)

Tiger woods

Let’s not forget the great win by Arabian Gold to conclude an exciting and successful opening day of The Championships.

Hopefully you had a better day than our promos guy.

Business-man-fetal-position

Don’t forget it’s CASH BACK next week as well if you run second on ALL races at Randwick on Day 2 of The Championships.

Top 10 ‘Early Crow’ Celebrations

The ‘Early Crow’.

It’s a term used to describe the celebration of a victory prior to completion, only to watch it embarrassingly back fire in your face.

Sports Psychologists are still yet to get to the bottom of the cause of this dreaded illness. Some studies have shown perpetrators often hold a strong tenancy towards being an overconfident git. It is also believed that the consumption of too much Justin Beiber can lead to the onset of this affliction.

The following is a list of 10 people who suffer from the dreaded ‘Early Crow’….but unlike most other illnesses, this one is okay to have a chuckle at.

TOP 10 EARLY CROWS

10. Golfer Paul Casey hits a hole in one at the Cadillac Championship. Seconds earlier Casey and his caddie Craig Connelly agreed to split the prize on offer for the ace.

 

9. Ironman Jeremy Jurkiewicz was pretty happy about taking out the Ironman 70.3 Brazil race and wanted to soak it up with the fans. Probably not the smartest thing to do…

 

8. Everybody loves a bit of rollerblading but not as much as this guy. It almost brought him undone!

 

7. Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot did all the hard work in the Chicago Marathon but his wheels failed him at the final hurdle. The poor bloke did hit his head so hopefully he forgets this moment.

 

6. Remember that important little thing called the clock.

 

5. The moral of the story is to keep your eye on the ball!

 

4. Refer to No.5. Keep your eye on the ball!

 

3. There’s never  a good time to make a blunder but you don’t want to do it in a Super Bowl! We reckon Leon Lett still gets reminded about this one.

 

2. Always play to the whistle

 

 

1. This is a classic example of the early crow. Our Japanese friends were already collecting their cash before tragedy struck!

 

The Sportingbet Promotions Team are pulling out all stops in a drastic effort to rid Australia of the horrendous ‘Early Crow’ illness.

To do so, they are giving CASH BACK if your horse finishes 2nd in ANY race throughout The Championships at Royal Randwick (12 & 19 April). That’s right BOTH weekends, on ALL races.

So if you want to tempt fate and go the early crow, you will get your cash back up to $100 if your horse runs second.

Over 160k refunded on the Golden Slipper and AFL Round 3

This is how we found the promos guy this morning… Poor bloke!

fetal-man

 

Golden Slipper favourite Earthquake went down to Mossfun by 0.8L and as a result it was cash back to the punters after she finished within a length of the Hawkes-trained runner.

This guy was very happy with that result…

Earthquake-WWF

AFL Round 3 saw some dominant performances by the likes of the Hawks & Bombers but we also saw some very hard fought contests.

Three of the matches finished with a winning margin of 18 points of less. So if you backed the Tigers, Pies & Port in the head to head market, it was cash back!

As our old mate Frank The Tank would say…

Frank The Tank

Now you can understand why we don’t expect the promos guy to move from the foetal position anytime soon!

Well done punters!

AFL ROUND 4 MARKETS

ALL IN BETTING MARKETS FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

Mossfun gets it done in the Slipper

What a race! An unfashionable run along the rails by James McDonald has won Mossfun and the Hawkes stable the $3.5 million Golden Slipper at Rosehill. The punters money was spot on with the two favourites Earthquake and Mossfun enjoying a ding-dong battle down the home straight.

Earthquake punters can also rest easy – because she finished within a length of the winner you will be getting your cash back! Spare a thought for our promo guy though, he is pulling his hair out. Actual vision below of him at his desk after he saw the result….

Bring Me The Maid flashed home for third with fillies filling the first five places across the line.

Sullo's Racing Tips

4. Memorial put in an eye catcher in the Slipper and a repeat of that effort would take her a long way here. 1. Oakleigh Girl strips fitter and can give a sight from 8. Shaumari who creates interest
Memorial is getting out to a big price with the support of her stablemate. Her run in the Slipper was enormous. Each way all day says The Baron.
Tried hard to find something to beat Sidestep but kept coming back to him. Nice weight drop, gets right run and in super form.
1. Sidestep looked to win with something in hand second up and may have too much class at his peak for this. 11. Bounding excels at this trip and warrants respect from 9. Chautauqua
4. Viadana comes across the ditch in career best form and looks terrific value here. 10. Gypsy Diamond had to go to plan B before smashing her rivals last start and looks the danger from 3. Catkins
Catkins is a super mare and gets her chance to break through at Group 1 level today. Flying this preparation.
Zanbagh on top with the bar plates back off. Proven at the trip and she's capable of much better than her Vinery run.
2. Lucia Valentina showed a terrific turn of foot to score impressively in the Vinery and she should relish the rise in trip now. 7. Miss Selby looks value from 1. Zanbagh who can improve sharply
4. The Offer is bred to relish the two miles and is right at the top of his game now. 3. Who Shot Thebarman handles all conditions and warrants respect from 7. Tupac Amaru who was brave in the Derby
The Offer just wins again. the Baron's best bet of the day. Drying track not in his favour but this bloke is airborne. Will relish the two miles.
It’s A Dundeel set to peak now fourth-up. Will box-seat from barrier 1 and if James McDonald can bullock out turning for home to make his signature sustained sprint, he’ll be mighty hard to beat.
5. Carlton House looks to be peaking at the right time for this and should give them something to chase. 6. Hawkspur was terrific in the Doncaster and looks value up in trip from 10. Silent Achiever
Spy Decoder is making great improvement from run to run so don't be surprised to see him make the leap to Listed level here. Double figure odds appeal. Longma toughest to beat.
9. Longma lost no admirers in a leader dominated affair first up and has the scope to handle the rise in class. 3. Woodbine prefers it firmer but can figure down in grade from 1. Fast'N'Rocking
5. Plucky Belle came off an unlucky run to score impressively second up last time in and history can repeat with conditions to her liking here. 7. Peron excels fresh and warrants respect from 1. Dystopia
Dystopia on top. Her run in the Oakleigh Plate was very sound and that's one of the best form races going around at the moment. Races best off a freshen too.
1. Angusroy gets up in the weights which is a concern but draws to get the run of the race and should be looking for this trip now. 8. Harbor Springs can improve and has claims from 10. Tips'N'Tales
3. Angel Of Mercy kept finding the line behind the classy Catkins second up and looks hard to hold out down in grade on firmer ground here. 4. Lady Echelon has e/way claims from 5. Pretty Pins
6. Freezethemillions kept on improving in her debut prep and looked sharp winning a recent Doomben trial in readiness for this. 10. Amizade can repeat from 14. Elitist who draws to give some cheek
3. Good Job Bro doesn't win out of turn but was consistent in stronger company last time in and looks well placed first up. 2. Agitate excels at this trip and has claims from 9. Blackboard Special
11. Best Yet To Come gets the visitors draw here but is crying out for this trip and will be charging late. 10. Beatniks is knocking on the door and gets her chance from 1. Queen Of Lochs
1. Benny's Buttons would prefer more sting out here but was rewarded for his honesty last start and should take confidence from that run. 4. Mishani Warrior can figure fresh from 8. Gundy Son
3. Cum Dividend was unlucky not to go back to back last start and draws to get all the favours here. 12. Kentucky Woman gets to her top and can repeat from 1. Buakaw who is in the mix
1. Storm Approach had to work from a wide gate in stronger grade second up and can improve at odds with a favourable draw here. 6. Tiny's Legacy is on the up and has claims fro 4. Synthetic
Forgive the run of Storm Approach last start when worked for the front. Last time he raced over 1800m trip he beat handy SA stayer Gamblin' Guru.
Liked the effort of Bec Said No Credit last start against the boys. Handy record at Caulfield and she's ready to win now back to mares grade.
6. Red Fez got all the favours to score third up but with Gig out draws to go right on with it here. 2. Bec Said No Credit goes well here and can improve from 10. Catered
1. River Delta has won both starts in soft fashion and looks hard to hold out with the claim here. 7. Griante was luckless last start and has e/way claims from 3. Leia who looks compeititve
River Delta is a filly with enormous upside and would be surprised to see her get rolled here.
Tough race but The Quarterback goes in on top. Has a powerful finish and if he's within striking distance turning for home, look out.
4. The Quarterback should get things run to suit and looks to have his hoof on the till here. 2. Classy Jack should roll forward and can give some cheek from 15. Vero Beach who can improve
3. Smoken Joey kept coming after covering plenty of ground third up and looks set to peak here. 6. Mecir is classy when right and looks to have strong claims from 9. Sistine Demon who draws awkwardly
Mecir has gone to a new level this preparation. Gets the gun run and has trialled very strongly since his Newcastle Newmarket win.
Our Voodoo Prince is the best bet on the card at Caulfield. Budding star that gets in on the minimum.
1. Mourayan had little luck when close up in the Australian Cup and should appreciate the drop in grade here. 13. Our Voodoo Prince is classy and looks the testing material from 10. Akzar
11. Sumakaray draws to get a lovely run behind the speed and can present at odds in an open affair. 1. It Is Written looks competitive down in grade from 2. Pago Rock who excels at this trip
Vatican hasn't had any luck at all in his past three starts but can make amends here from a good draw. Likes Caulfield too.
4. Streetcar Valour raced above himself when not disgraced first up and should appreciate the extra trip now. 6. Whitten's Delight looks the testing material from 5. Alchemy's Eight
2. Sheez On Top is as honest as they come and draws to get the right run first up. 8. Miss Joolia should settle closer in the run from the pole and gets her chance from 1. Potiche who warrants respect
2. Texan Warney is a veteran who continues to race competitively and should appreciate the extra trip now. 7. War Is Over is much improved and gets in well with the claim from 4. Chieftain Jack
2. Palmero gave a great front running display to score an easy win last start and looks hard to toss in this mood. 5. King Triton is talented and has e/way claims from 4. Jervois
3. Siwa Lady looks set to get a soft lead on paper and will take running down if left alone here. 4. Dee Bee Nine draws to improve and has strong claims from 8. Lady Of Harrods
3. King's Pardon has a good record first up and draws to get every chance here. 6. Shiso likes to lead and can give some cheek from 5. Dignitary who strips fitter and is in the mix
