Legendary Land – $40 Into $114,620.80


Victoria Derby Day is always a very special day for punters, but one particular Ladbrokes punter has had a Derby Day that he will never forget.

With a simple five leg multi, this punter has turned $40 into $114,620.80!

The multi started with Downdraft in the Lexus Hotham Stakes at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day and this was a very easy watch for our punter.

Downdraft stormed clear of his rivals to record a dominant victory and secure his place in the 2019 Melbourne Cup field.

Our punter turned his attention to the Empire Rose Stakes and he backed star Kiwi mare Melody Belle to claim her maiden Group 1 win in Australia.

Melody Belle was a long way back heading into the straight, but she ate up the wet Flemington track and exploded in the concluding stages to record a very impressive win.

He decided to take on the favourite Bivouac in the Coolmore Stud Stakes and that proved to be the winning move.

Our punter sided with Exceedance and the Team Hawkes-trained galloper was able to finish over the top of his rival in the concluding stages to move our punter to within two legs of an incredible victory.

It was Warning in the Victoria Derby that added plenty of value to our punter’s multi.

Warning started the Victoria Derby at odds of $9.50, but as Shadow Hero and Thought Of That flopped, he won the race like a short-priced favourite.

Our punter then turned his attention to Rosehill Gardens and a truly life-changing multi all came down to Kolding in The Golden Eagle.

We would love to have had a camera on our punter when Kolding ran into traffic at the 250 metre mark and it looked as though his dreams of an incredible multi win were over.

Somehow though, Kolding was able to drag himself off the canvas, Glen Boss found a gap and Kolding was able to finish over the top of Sunlight in the shadows of the post.

With that win our punter was able to turn $40 into $114,620.80 and have a Victoria Derby Day that he will never forget!
