Our Punter of the Week is SS, from Adelaide, who walked away smiling after landing the trifecta in the last race at Flemington on Saturday.
Standing out his preferred selection, the Enver Jusufovic-trained Just Hifalutin, for first and including the field for the two minor slots, our punter watched on as the 5yo chestnut mare came with a late charge to nab $81 chance Well Sprung right on the line, favourite Langhro having to be content with third place having led for much of the race.
With the final STAB trifecta dividend settling at $2,568.50 our punter was laughing, and his fortunes were increased by separate Win and Place bets totalling $500 on the winner, ensuring a total return in excess of $4,000.
Nice work SS!
