Racing Punter Turns $120 Outlay Into $4,100 Return With Winning Trifecta

Our Punter of the Week is AD, from Canberra, who turned a $120 investment into a sizeable return after landing the trifecta in one of the Million Dollar Chase Heats (Race 6) at Wagga greyhounds on Thursday evening.

Including his four favoured runners in a $5 box trifecta for a total outlay of $120.

National Futurity winner Blue Sky Riot was sent out a prohibitive $1.18 favourite in Box 8 but couldn’t live with the early speed of Corleone King ($23), who set up a good lead passing the winning post first time around.

The locally-trained Myrniong Magic ($21) wasn’t to be denied though, and overwhelmed the leader nearing the line to claim a ninth career win as Blue Sky Riot raced in third position throughout in wet conditions.

With the final STAB dividend for the trifecta settling at a handy $822.90 given the upset result, our punter found himself $4,114.50 better off for his efforts.

Nice work AD!
