Wagers suggest Arcadia Queen reigns supreme in TAB Everest

One TAB punter is confident that Arcadia Queen can salute in Saturday’s $14m, TAB Everest (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday after placing a $10,000 bet at $6 overnight, which would result in a $60,000 collect.

Since being transferred from Grant and Alana Williams, Arcadia Queen has run once in Sydney for Chris Waller and was victorious in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes over 1300m at Rosehill Gardens on September 14th.

It was the sixth victory from seven starts for the four-year-old daughter of Pierro, with one of those wins at Group 1 level in last year’s Kingston Town Classic over 1800 metres at Ascot on December 8th.

The $10,000 wager overnight on Arcadia Queen equals the biggest bet TAB has received on the TAB Everest with one punter on October 3rd placing $10,000 at $7 on Arcadia Queen. 

On September 7th, one TAB customer placed $10,000 at $11 on Redzel hours before he resumed triumphantly in the 1000-metre Concorde Stakes at Randwick.

Arcadia Queen is currently the fourth-most popular galloper with TAB punters for the TAB Everest as she accounts for 16 percent of the money placed on the 12 confirmed slot holders.

TAB’s representative, $4.60 favourite Santa Ana Lane, is currently the most popular runner with 18 percent of the support ahead of Pierata (17 percent) and two-time winner Redzel (16.5 percent).

The official declarations for Saturday’s TAB Everest will be confirmed at 10am Tuesday AEDT.
