The first year of The Championships has come to a close with a huge 2nd day of racing at Randwick.
The dynamic duo of Gai Waterhouse & Tommy Berry were the big winners taking home both the Queen of the Turf and the Sydney Cup with Diamond Drille and The Offer. The other big winners were the connections of It’s A Dundeel who took out the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and at the same time pocketed the hefty $4 million pay check.
Tip of the hat to any punters who managed to back a winner throughout the carnival. For those who went close but didn’t pocket that cigar, we were there to save you courtesy of our Money Back special for finishing 2nd.
Runners who finished 2nd on Day 2 of The Championships
Race 1 – Careless
Race 2 – Woodbine
Race 3 – Ygritte
Race 4 – Bounding
Race 5 – Gypsy Diamond
Race 6 – Zanbagh
Race 7 – Opinion
Race 8 – Sacred Falls
Race 9 – Avoid Lightning
The Championships may be over along with our Money Back offer, and you’d think we’d want a rest…but we are gluttons for punishment. We have money backs and Multi boosts on almost every event known to a sporting nut. Starting with the following specials this weekend…
Get a 25% Bonus on all 4+ leg NRL Multis! Available on all matches within Round 7 of the NRL.
Have a head to head bet and if your team loses the match by 18 points or less, we’ll refund your bet – up to $100!
Have a head to head bet and if your team loses in overtime, we’ll refund your bet – up to $100!
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!
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…
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!
Our promos guy was doing it tough by this stage with five races to go!
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…
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…
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!
This man can take a bow… First 4 in the Doncaster Mile
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)
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.
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.
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.
This is how we found the promos guy this morning… Poor bloke!
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…
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…
Now you can understand why we don’t expect the promos guy to move from the foetal position anytime soon!
Well done punters!
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.
