Punters may recall The Watchdog selecting Bobby The Brute as the standout selection in the Sale Cup ‘All In’ market.
Brendan Pursell’s greyhound opened up at $51 to win and $13.50 to place.
“Bobby The Brute is my value runner for the entire series, especially for the place at $13.50,” The Watchdog said on 19 December, the day before the heats.
Bobby The Brute ended up paying $4 a place for running third in the final, with early-bird punters that snapped up the $13.50 left laughing the loudest.
A son of KC And All x She’s Scandalous, Bobby The Brute has now been placed in country cups after running a brilliant 2nd to Simon Told Helen in the Geelong Gold Cup in October.
