The engagement of Damien Oliver for Snow Sky has prompted a burst of support with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Oliver was yesterday confirmed as Snow Sky’s jockey for the Caulfield Cup, but a decision is yet to be made on the Melbourne Cup. The Sir Michael Stoute trained four-year-old is rated a $21 chance for the time honoured race. Japanese star Fame Game heads betting on $11, equal with Rising Romance.
“Ollie has ridden four Caulfield Cup winners so his booking for the Snow Sky is a huge pointer. The horse was ice cold with punters, but since yesterday’s announcement they have started jumping on board,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.
