Saturday’s Rosehill Gardens meeting is being billed ‘Winter Wonderland’ by the Sydney Turf Club, but for NSW TAB punters it’s going to be a ‘First 4 Jackpot Wonderland’.
Three First 4 jackpots totaling $136,366 have been linked to Saturday’s meeting, securing bigger First 4 dividends for punters. Races 6 and 7 each have a $50,000 jackpot on the First 4, while Race 8 has a $36,366 First 4 jackpot.
The meeting’s feature is the $100,000 Winter Championship (Race 6) featuring the more than capable Illuminates, Falaise, Madibagold and Gergis who filled the First 4 placings in the Civic Stakes earlier this month.
Saturday’s BIG6, meanwhile, is a cross-meeting Rosehill Gardens/Caulfield BIG6, taking in the last three races from each venue. One of last Saturday’s thoroughbred BIG6 success stories involved a player investing just $20 on a mystery Fred bet at the Erina TAB to land 18.51% of the major dividend for a win of $21,350.
