Killahara Castle


The John Burke trained Killahara Castle became the biggest priced winner in Irish racing history when landing a Listed Hurdle at Thurles in December. The six-year-old mare returned an SP of 201.0 but those fortunate enough to have backed her on the Betfair Exchange were enjoying an even bigger return with a BSP of 1000.0, a difference of £799!

Duke of Bronte


Earlier in the year, Rod Millman's Duke of Bronte won readily at Newbury by two lengths at an SP of 101.0 with 2.2 favourite Dhalam back in third. Once again Betfair Exchange backers were £779 better off with the gelding's BSP returning at 880.0.

Discorama


In one of the closest finishes we saw all year, Discorama reeled in the highly touted Blow By Blow in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse. Paul Nolan's five-year-old returned a BSP of 474.0 on the Betfair Exchange compared with the SP of 67.0.
