If cheering a winner down the straight is great – cheering a trifecta home is even better.
Better than a trifecta? Easy, that’s hitting the quaddie. But better than the quaddie? That only leaves one thing – the mysterious and highly elusive first four.
While they might be hard to hit, they payoff is usually pretty handsome and that was certainly the case over the weekend for our Punter Of The Week at Sportsbet, who bagged the first four in race four at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
With an initial stake of just $24, the Sportsbet punters return of just over $50,000 isn’t a bad arvo’s work.
Here’s exactly how it went down:
Location: Eagle Farm
Race: R4 – Channel Seven Premier’s Cup (2200m)
Bet Type: First Four
1 – Kaiser Franz ($71.80)
2 – Zambezi Warrior ($8.50)
3 – The Chairman ($5.00)
4 – Benzini ($14)
The track at Eagle Farm copped its share of criticism after the weekend’s racing – but we reckon we know one punter who couldn’t give a stuff!
