Roughies Dominate Prime Ministers Cup

Tampiko has claimed the Listed Prime Ministers Cup on the Gold Coast at big odds and left punters once again shaking their heads.

It was one of the tightest races on the program but amazingly the mass of horses hitting the line didn’t feature a single pre-race favourite.

In fact the payouts for the winning results were bigger than any witnessed in a long time.

The final finishing order was Tampiko by a short nose from Eire Of Magic which was making up good ground along the inside.

Third across the line was Fifteen Carat topping off a whitewash of roughies.

The quinella alone paid more than $1000 with some bookmakers and the trifecta was in excess of $40,000 per stake.

While not good news for most punters the result has thrilled the winning connections who will now have to re-draw new plans for future races.

It originally looked like Tampiko and the others would struggle to gain a start throughout the Brisbane Winter Carnival but this win will give them the prize money they need to gain entry to some of the bigger events.

Given the result was so unexpected they haven’t put in any set plans as yet however expect to see these names bobbing up again and at much shorter odds.

It was another bad race for Captain Sonador which never made an impact and an early retirement could be on the cards.

Connections said pre-race that if he didn’t run well they’d look at cutting the rest of the carnival short and sending him to stud in New South Wales.
