Punters have responded instantly after Sportingbet Australia busted Black Caviar’s price to $1.10 with a string of huge bets rushing in for the champion mare.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said he was happy to lay the unbeaten mare again tomorrow after losing a fortune on her during her unbeaten run of thirteen wins.
“We moved her out to $1.10 and instantly took a bet of $100,000 plus two more bets of $25,000,” Sullivan said.
“We have dusted millions on her already so there is no point stopping now and not taking her on in the Schillaci.
“1000m isn’t her pet distance and although the field doesn’t have a tremendous amount of depth, if she is going to be vulnerable, this is probably the day.
“If you put your foot on her the day she got beaten, you would never forgive yourself as a bookie so we will be sitting top odds her right up until jump time to make sure we get our wack out of her.”
Sullivan said there had been no support for any other runner with Karuta Quuen on the second line of betting at $11.
