Our Punter of the Week is SH, from Brisbane, who turned $300 into a lazy $13,000 after landing the First4 on a race at Esperance on Saturday evening.
Standing out his preferred pick Heaven’s Gate ($8.50), one of only a handful of horses trained by Jane Hossell in country WA, our punter would have been delighted to see the 4YO gelding unleash a strong run from midfield to record his third win from 11 starts.
With leader Meritocracy ($41) holding on for third and $15 shot Omerta also in the mix, the First4 paid a whopping $12,330 on STAB and gave this long-standing client a total payout of $12,874 for his $1.04 unit stake.
The race was run within half an hour of the feature race at Ascot, Winterbottom Stakes, so this kind of return gave our punter plenty of ammunition to attack the Group 1 sprint in style.
Nice work SH.
