Title of Thread:  Bookies facing $4m payout
Description:  Bookies facing $4m payout Queensland Newspapers Tony Meany, turf 06oct05 ADELAIDE Cup winner Demerger was yesterday backed to win more than $4 million in the Caulfield Cup after a co-ordinated Australia-wide plunge, despite trainer Danny O'Brien last week claiming the horse would miss the race. In a well-planned sting, Demerger was backed to win $1 million in straight-out betting and at least $3 million if one of several Caulfield-Melbourne Cups doubles is landed. Demerger was heavily coupled with Perlin and Xcellent to win the Melbourne Cup in a plunge that took everyone by surprise. O'Brien last week declared the mare would not start in the $2.5 million Caulfield Cup (2400m) on Saturday week because of the state of the track. Outstanding Melbourne apprentice Blake Shinn has been booked to ride Demerger. "Everything depends on the state of the track and how it is racing," O'Brien said yesterday. "At the moment the only thing I am certain about is that she will have one run before the Melbourne Cup. "Whether it will be the Caulfield Cup or the Moonee Valley Cup will be decided next week. "Demerger is only about a $12 chance in the Melbourne Cup and they would have thought it was big overs." Sydney bookmaker Colin Tidy was claimed for massive doubles payouts on Demerger and she shortened from $41 to $15. "They are a bunch of jetsetters judging by the postal address they used with us," Tidy's form analyst Mark Morrissey said. "One double was $800,000 to $2000 on Demerger winning the two cups and there were several $1000 doubles with her." NSW TAB spokesman Glen Munsie said he was on air when the phone bets of $4000 each way at $51 and $2000 straight out were placed at noon. "If I had been near my screen they would never have got set for that," Munsie said. Demerger was backed with UniTAB fixed odds at $2000 straight out at $41 and $2000 straight out at $31 to win the Caulfield Cup. Dual Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva was also heavily backed around Australia yesterday to win her third successive Melbourne Cup. Tidy firmed Makybe Diva from $5 to $4 favourite after a flood of money hit Northern Territory-based bookmakers. Jockey Michael Cahill has been engaged for Natural Blitz in the Caulfield Cup but the horse struggles on wet tracks and the forecast is not encouraging. Cahill had minor knee and wrist injuries after a fall yesterday but will be fit to ride at Eagle Farm on Saturday. Tax office executive Andrew Hedges has been appointed Queensland Racing director of integrity operations. Hedges replaces Bob Mason and starts on October 17. He previously served with the Queensland police and had roles with the Criminal Justice Commission and Queensland Crime Commission. Gold Coast trainer John Wallace yesterday paid top price of $300,000 for a colt by Zeditave from Miss Page at the Magic Millions ready to run sales after he prepared the horse for the breeze up. ------------------------- There's always next year Reply Quote Top Bottom Edit Bookies facing $4m payout Queensland Newspapers Tony Meany, turf 06oct05 ADELAIDE Cup winner Demerger was yesterday backed to win more than $4 million in the Caulfield Cup after a co-ordinated Australia-wide plunge, despite trainer Danny O'Brien last week claiming the horse would miss the race.
