AJC Oaks winner Absolutely has been heavily backed again for the Caulfield Cup following her eye catching run at Moonee Valley on Saturday.
Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said the Mick Kent trained mare had been heavily backed before Saturday’s run and another wave of money came when the market was reposted on Sunday.
“We took a bet of $3000 at $26 following her first up run and then another bet of $2000 at $17 before Saturday’s run,” Sullivan said.
“We have taken a number of good bets since Saturday including one of $2000 at $16.
“Punters have clearly identified her as one of the main contenders for the Caulfield Cup and I expect to see her to continue to shorten as we get closer to the race.”
Sullivan said there had also been money for a number of other runners at good odds.
“Pinker Pinker has been well backed again with a bet of $1500 at $17 after we took a bet of $2000 at $35 back in mid August,” he said.
“There has also been good money for Excluded including a bet of $50,000 to $1000 and he is now into $31.”
