$500,000 Trentham Triple Trio Up For Grabs

14 March 2014

$500,000 Trentham Triple Trio Up For Grabs

The TAB has a guaranteed $500,000 Triple Trio* pool up for grabs at tomorrow’s Wellfield New Zealand Oaks Ladies Day at the Trentham race course. Why Ladies Day? The two feature races are races for female horses only. The Group 1 Wellfield NZ Oaks, run over 2400m, is for three year old fillies and the Group 3 Cuddle Stakes, run over 1600m, is for fillies and mares.

“With two $300,000 plus winners in previous Triple Trios and well over $2million paid out in Triple Trio so far since its launch in mid-January, we’re hoping more of our customers have a triple celebration this Saturday,” Executive General Manager TAB, Glenn Patrick said.

“This Triple Trio starts with Race 8 at 4:11pm. Race 9, the feature and second race, The Wellfield New Zealand Oaks, is set to go at 4.45pm. The final Triple Trio Race 10 goes around 5.20pm and betting is open now.

“Miss Selby will likely be a banker in the second leg of many Triple Trio bets this Saturday. TAB Bookmakers have opened the O'Reilly filly as the $2.80 favourite after an impressive win in the Group 3 Lowland Stakes on 1 March. Rock Diva, who is also a last-start Group 3 winner, is the second favourite at $4.50 with Chop Chop and Moozoon on the third line of betting at $8.50.

“Race 8, the first leg, features $3.80 Wellington favourite Natuzzi, who placed in the first Triple Trio. Whosyourmaster and Antonio Lombardo are also worth including and if you like the Italian stallions then get La Valeta in there too!

“If the remnants of Cyclone Lusi hold off until after Race 10, the last leg of Triple Trio, it might pay to include Kawi. Kawi was very impressive in four recent runs finishing inside the top two on all four occasions and is a good-include in Triple Trio bets. This final leg should be competitive so look for a range of runners including Albrecht, Mat Dillon and Fancy Nancy to be chances.

“You don’t have to be a racing guru to have a go on Triple Trio, or to make any bet. Our biggest winner on 1 March had some help from the TAB outlet staff on how to place her bet and how to collect her winnings.

“A TAB Easybet is a simple way to have a crack. For example, a $30 % Easybet gives you five horses in two races and four horses in the other. People can find out which races are part of Triple Trio and the odds on horses on our websites www.tripletrio.co.nz or www.tab.co.nz,” Mr Patrick said.

*About Triple Trio: First division winners need to have the first three horses (in any order) in the nominated three consecutive races – usually the last three of the day. www.tripletrio.co.nz
