The big money has kept coming for the Mark Kavanagh trained Shrapnel in Saturdayâ€™s Galaxy with the colt now into $8.00 at Sportingbet Australia after opening at $11.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said the last start Adelaide winner had clearly been the best backed runner in a very open Galaxy market.
â€œWe opened her at $11 and immediately took a couple of bets of $1000 and then a bet of $5000 each way at $10,â€ Sullivan said.
â€œPunters havenâ€™t been put off though with more money coming at $9.00 and it is still coming at $8.00.
â€œHe was very heavily backed when he won the Yallambee in Adelaide last start and punters have stuck with him.â€
Sullivan said while Shrapnel had clearly been the best backed runner, there had been money for a number of other runners.
â€œOrtensia has been rock solid at $5.50 while Thankgodyourehere has been backed from $7.00 to $6.50 and Solar Charged has been $10 to $8.50,â€ he said.
â€œWe have also seen money for King Pulse and News Alert at double figure odds.â€
