Hawkes trained sprinter Chautauqua is all the rage for the 2016 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley tomorrow night despite his first-up flop in the Moir Stakes.
Punters are keen to back the classy sprinter who is the $2.50 favourite, and has been singled out in Manikato Stakes betting.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports that Chautauqua holds 60% of money on the $1,000,000 Group 1 feature, including one bet of $10,000 by one confident punter.
“Chautauqua was a beaten short-priced favourite in the Moir Stakes, but punters obviously think he can turn it around in the Manikato,” sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
“He’s a star sprinter and out to 1200m should give him time to unleash the powerful finish he is capable of.”
Next in betting is Golden Slipper winner Capitalist at $6.00. The talented three-year-old is coming off a Roman Consul Stakes third placing in Sydney and will go around with just 53 kilograms against the older gallopers.
Grand campaigner Buffering is $10.00, while The Quarterback is $15.00.
However, Chautauqua holds eight times more money than those three horses.
We highly recommend a sportsbet.com.au account for betting on the Manikato Stakes.
They have some fantastic money back special offers for horse racing plus you can score a matched first bet bonus when you open a new account and place your first bet.
The 2016 Manikato Stakes will be held on Friday 21st October 2016 under lights at Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne.
