The photograph shows Roy’s Sailor (nearest the camera) and Baumgartner involved in an epic battle coming up the straight in the 2000m MR 55 Handicap at Borrowdale Park on Sunday. Ryan Munger was aboard Penny Fisher’s charge, Roy’s Sailor, the winner by 0.05 lengths, and Sherman Brown was on the Kirk Swanson trained Baumgartner, who was giving away 4.5 kgs.
Findlay was 0.55 lengths back in third place, followed by Record Bid.
This was the race I suggested you could take a $3 Quartet on – and possibly make your fortune – but unfortunately it didn’t work out quite like that. This Quartet paid $263 .10. $3 would give you 12.5% of the payout i.e. $37.88.
There were no huge Quartet payouts on Sunday – the highest being $2064.30 in the last race of the day. In the main most fancied runners obliged at this race meeting, and no doubt some punters were pleased about that.
However I still think Quartets are the way to go for smaller and ambitious punters. Onwards and upwards…. and don’t get discouraged at this early stage of the game.
