Black Caviar has been backed in from $1.85 to $1.75 within minutes of the market opening for Saturdayâ€™s Patinack Farm Classic with one Sportingbet Australia punter placing $100,000 on the Peter Moody trained mare.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said punters had decided the best sprinting mare in the country would be too good for Hay List.
â€œThe punters swooped as soon as the odds went up,â€ said Sullivan.
â€œThe $1.85 lasted about three minutes with bets including one of $100,000.
â€œThe punters think Black Caviar is across the line but weâ€™re still keen to take her on as Hay List is very good and the likes of Star Witness, Ortensia and Melito are all capable of springing a surprise.â€
Hay List has drifted from $2.75 to $2.90 while Star Witness remains a firm third favourite at $9.00.
