Blind Freddy – Can Play Fame Game

  • Posted By:

Even “Blind Freddy” would have seen the huge Caulfield Cup run of Fame Game so it is not surprising he has been smashed in Melbourne Cup betting.

Online bookmaker has been hit hard since the Japanese star flashed home for sixth at Caulfield last Saturday – he was $7.00 prior to the Cup and is now into $4.80 favourite.

Caulfield Cup winner Mongolian Khan ($11) still has plenty of admirers, after receiving a one kilogram weight penalty. The Kiwi is third most popular just behind Preferment ($10).

“There was not a better Melbourne Cup trial than Fame Game’s. The punters aren’t blind and they’ve come for him in a big way. Fame Game holds more than six times the money than the second best backed runner, which is Preferment. If the trend continues, Fame Game is going to continue to shorten,’’ said’s Will Byrne.
