Despite taking bets including $250,000, $50,000 and $45,000, Sportingbet Australia has left the price of Manawanui at $1.20 for today’s Stan Fox Stakes at Rosehill.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said he was determined to let the punters on.
“It’s hard to see Manawanui being beaten but stranger things have happened in racing,” said Sullivan.
“It’s a small field and they’ll all be very conscious of him so he may become held up at a vital time.
“He’s such a dominant favourite that the largest bet with taken on any other runner is $500 on State Of Wealth but we’re going right on with the job and letting the punters have a bet.”
