A.J.C. Australian Derby Day
Let's have a look at some of the betting from the big meeting at Randwick last Saturday. Also keep in mind that the track was deteriorating. It started as a rain affected Slow track, and after the fifth race was downgraded to Heavy. That of course meant the fifth race was run on a Heavy track.
1. In the first race of the day, a 2YO Group 3 Handicap run over 1600 metres, Paratroopers was backed from $1.70 to $1.60 odds on favourite.
a) This 2YO colt was racing over 1600 metres for the first time.
2. In the last race of the day, a 3YO Fillies Group 3 over 2000 metres, Pleasure Ground was the subject of a big go, being plunged from $6.00 to $4.40.
a) This 3YO filly was racing over 2000 metres for the first time.
