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!

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.

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!

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

Doesn't look to be a great deal of depth to this field so happy to be with former Kiwi Postnthyme. Great record and has upside.
2. Empress Elect has been ok in stronger races of late and is effective in all conditions. 3. Postnthyme is yet to run a bad race and has strong claims on her local debut from 1. Theresmusicplaying
1. Takewing is capable of better and draws to get every chance in an open affair. 6. Supreme shapes as though the extra trip will suit and warrants respect down in grade from 7. Al Julhara
Takewing gets one last chance in a very winnable maiden. Ran in Listed race two starts back.
Charlie Royale ran a cracker behind Hallowed Crown on debut and only has to stay at that level to be in the finish here.
1. Charlie Royale did his best work late after an average beginning on debut and can figure with the benefit of experience here. 2. Mercurian strips fitter and can give some cheek from 4. Spinning Dawn
5. Wine'N'Dine continues to hit the line hard and looks to get another chance here. 1. Scottish Border has e/way claims from 3. Paederos who looks well placed up in trip second up
Paederos is the best horse in the race and with the fresh edge off him after his first-up run, should be winning.
Bubbles 'n' Boats goes in on top as she's flying. Take the quinella with Amarachi.
11. Bubbles'N'Boats has improved with every run and draws to get all the favours here. 7. Talent had excuses last time and can improve from 3. Amarachi who has claims down in grade
13. Elegant Doubt has had little luck in stronger races of late and can show up at odds with the right run here. 1. Fracking strips fitter and has claims from 5. Cushy Number who gets to his top
Scratching of Longma has really opened this up. Fracking now top pick. Did enough on his Aussie debut and expect plenty of improvement second-up.
Grand Daughter looks a nice price here. Poked through along the rails last start and drawn to do same here. Step to 1400m suits.
4. Flying Bay is as honest as they come and should be right at her peak after two encouraging runs back. 3. Generalife has a good strike rate second up and looks the danger from 8. I'm In The Money
1. Dillon Hall draws awkwardly but was tough behind a promising type first up and strips fitter here. 6. Just Wonderful was solid on debut and can improve from 3. Arma De Fuego who looks value
Just Wonderful was beaten easily by Kona Breeze at Ararat on debut but there was daylight back to third. Trained by the flying Hawkes stable.
Would be surprised if Tear Gas didn't salute here. Bolted in last start and this not much harder. Just wins.
5. A Chiller is starting to deliver now and from the draw shouldn't have any excuses here. 9. Tear Gas will relish the rise in trip and looks the testing material from 4. St Issey
2. Luck's A Fortune has come into his own with the step up in trip and looked to win with plenty in hand against a similar bunch last start. 3. Jelly Baby has e/way claims from 4. By His Design
Luck's A Fortune has really hit his straps now and deserves to be odds-on. Only has to hold his form to win again.
12. Carillo is building to a win and draws to get his chance here. 2. Lonrockstar gets to his top and warrants respect from 11. Rural Hunter who is on the up and should appreciate the extra trip
Solid speed engaged here. Bel Seal is drawn to get the gun run and looks ready to win again now fourth-up.
Not A Llama very hard to beat from a good draw. Eight-week freshen suits. Will be jumping out of her skin.
7. Not A Llama hit a flat spot mid race after settling a little further back last start and from this draw looks set to bounce back. 12. Royal Glance warrants respect from 1. First Print
3. Celeritas wasn't disgraced after doing her best work late when up in grade third up and the step up to the mile looks ideal. 4. Bella Mollie can give a sight from 14. Musica Royale
Jade's Boy has been thereabouts recently and gets his chance in a very even race. His best form would win this.
Srikandi is The Baron's best from across the country today. Really progressive filly and surprised she isn't much shorter in the market.
3. Scarlet Billows did a big job from a wide gate when resuming and proved herself in this grade second up last time in. 2. Pilly's Wish is on the up and has claims from 4. Srikandi who is in the mix
1. Pythagorean worked home honestly from a wide gate first up and has the scope for sharp improvement here. 2. Wales was ridden upside down last start and can improve from 9. Champagne Shisha
Liked the recent trial of Onpicalo. Rarely far away and hard to see him letting us down here.
