Local star Colour Correct has been heavily backed to win the Railway Stakes including one bet of $25,000 each way at Sportingbet Australia.
The gelding has won his last two and Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said punters were very confident of him making it three in a row.
â€œHe has shortened from $4.80 to $4.40 already and the way the money is coming, he could well start even shorter,â€ Sullivan said.
â€œHis past two wins have been very dominant and he has the bonus of a good gate and Paul Harvey.â€
Sullivan said while the local had clearly been the best backed, there had been some good money for some of the raiders from the eastern states.
â€œTrusting has been very well backed at $6.50 while his stable mate, Gathering, has been $19 to $15 with one bet to win $45,000,â€ Sullivan said.
