Vic Derby Bonus Bet

Written by Motts on October 29 2014

Give me your trifecta for the Vic Derby this Saturday. I’ll then make up a trifecta from the results. Poll closes 10am Saturday.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. Fun facts I stumbled across:

    Favourites have a poor record in this contest, with the past seven all unplaced. Efficient was the most recent punters’ elect to salute in 2006.

    Since Efficientโ€™s win in 2006, four of the seven winners were at double figure odds, with Fiveandahalfstar $41 in 2012, Sangster $13 in 2011, Lion Tamer $13 in 2010 and Rebel Raider $101 in 2008.

    โ€˜The Vaseโ€™ has produced 13 Derby winners in the past three decades, more than any other race, but only one of the past six have actually come through that race. Moonovermanhattan ($8.00)
    1st, Atmosphere ($9.50) 2nd, Royal Standing ($35.00) 4th, Bondeiger ($10.00) 7th and San Padre ($21.00) 8th come out of this yearโ€™s Vase. Moonovermanhattan is looking to become the first horse since Efficient in 2006 to complete Vase/Derby double.

    Nonetheless, it’s hard to look past Hampton Court.


  2. I don’t get a lot of wins so I’m going to write about this one. I was the lone voice recommending we include Nozomi in our tri on the Derby. I’m a man of the people and no-one else liked it so I left it out of our group bet but at Bells on Saturday afternoon I threw it in. Had 10% of the trifecta which with Nozomi coming third ($7.90 the place) ended up paying $1,556. Good win Mottsy.
