Our Punter of the Week is NA, from Queensland, who turned a $50 investment into a nice payday after landing the quadrella at Canterbury on Wednesday afternoon.
Applying a 10c unit stake to his 490 individual combinations for a total outlay of $49, our punter had the two favourites going for him in the opening leg (Race 4) and watched on as Metamorphic got his bet up and running, the Waller-trained gelding only icing the result late on as he fought off the challenge of Gretzky.
Leaving out favourite Realise Potential in the next, our punter would have been delighted to see bolter Realise Potential, bearing the colours made famous by Melbourne Cup winner Might and Power, land the prize after a ding dong battle with Mollyfied down the straight.
With Gary Portelli’s Puppet Master amongst his selections in Race 6, our punter was alive heading into the last and saw It’s A Fait Accompli, who had claimed the Narrandera Cup at his most recent start, complete the bet with a powerful finish.
With the SP of the four individual winners $2.30, $41, $14 and $16, the final STAB dividend was an enormous $22,394 for the quaddie, leaving NA more than two grand better off for his troubles.
Nice work NA!
