Legendary Lands – $5 Into $12,960
We were treated to a very enjoyable day of racing right around the country on Saturday, but it proved to be particularly enjoyable for one punter in particular.
He combined four horses, a couple at juicy odds, to turn $5 into an incredible $12,960!
This outstanding multi started in the Inglis Sprint and our punter backed Fiesta at $3.60 to upstage returning Golden Slipper winner Estijaab.
It turned into a genuine two horse race and Estijaab looked as though she might make a winning return to the races, but it was Fiesta that proved too strong in the end.
Our punter turned his attention to the Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Fillies Prelude at Caulfield and he backed outside Lyre at the juicy price of $18.
This was one of the most exciting finishes of the day and it was Lyre that got the job done to keep our punter alive.
Avilius was one of the best-backed runners of the day at Caulfield and our punter was confident that he would get the job done in the Carlyon Cup.
There was still plenty of work left for Avilius to do at the top of the straight, but he was able to finish over the top of his rivals in very impressive fashion to move our punter to within one win of an incredible windfall.
It all came down to the final race of the day at Warwick Farm and our punter had thrown his support behind Cisco Bay at $16.
Cisco Bay was settled in the second half of the field and Robbie Dolan asked him for an effort a long way from home before he ended up as the widest runner in the straight.
It looked as though he would run out of gas late, but Cisco Bay just kept on finding and he proved too strong for his rivals in the final stages of the contest.
That Cisco Bay win was not only a brutal result for the Ladbrokes book, but it ensured that our punter turned $5 into an outstanding $12,960!
