The Tim Martin trained Sasa has been backed into outright second favourite for the Oaks after a series of big bets were struck at Sportingbet Australia.
Sasa ran an eye catching fifth in the Wakeful after being last on the turn and punters have backed her from $6.00 to $5.50 since Sunday.
â€œSasa had been a $17 chance before the Wakeful run and we shortened her to $6.00 following but punters still stepped in,â€ said Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan.
â€œWe have taken bets to win $20,000 and $10,000 since then and she is now a clear second favourite.
â€œIt was an enormous run in the Wakeful and the 2500m of the Oaks looks like it will suit her perfectly.â€
Brazilian Pulse remains the $3.40 favourite with Sportingbet ahead of Sasa at $5.50, Precious Lorraine at $7.00 and Placement at $8.50.
