NIGHTMARE FOR PUNTERS LINES UP POSSIBLE £1 MILLION SCOOP6 BIRTHDAY TILT NEXT SATURDAY


Scoop6 punters hoping to capitalise on the big rollover pools were dealt two early blows from which they never recovered yesterday afternoon as 20-1 chance Luxor and 25-1 shot Abashoosh sent lines tumbling when taking the first two legs of Saturday's big pool bet.


Despite big, tricky-looking fields making up the majority of the Scoop6 legs, punters-no doubt lured by the £600,000+ rollovers-weren't shy in having a crack at the bet yesterday afternoon, gambling in total £295,296 into the Scoop6 pools.


However, it took just three legs to have whittled the near £300,000 bet into the pools down to just £2, which was all that remained going into leg four.


"Scoop6 punters who pinned their hopes on landing the monster Win fund have had a terrible afternoon,"said Tote spokesman Jeremy Scott. "By the time Maycock Bay won the fourth to scupper the final ticket, most punters had stopped raising their eyebrows at big-priced winners but had started to realise that a bumper Place fund dividend was on the cards."

"They weren't disappointed, the 40 punters who had selected placed horses in each race saw a handsome Place dividend of £1,479.40 returned."

"The Scoop6 will celebrate it's third anniversary next weekend and what a party it could be with a possible £1 million lining the Win and Bonus Prize fund pools by the time racing kicks off next Saturday."

A Win fund of £441,338 and Bonus Prize fund rollover of £308,466 will start the Scoop6 pools off next Saturday.



INVEST WEST CATCHES FERGUSON WIN WITH LATE RUN


NEW KENT, VIRGINIA

Augustin Stable's Invest West closed with a late rush to win the $50,000 David L. "Zeke" Ferguson Memorial steeplechase stakes at Colonial Downs on Saturday.


The Ferguson (Gr. III) looked like a parade early as Tres Touche was allowed to set a comfortable pace for nearly two miles. Spinning out of the final turn, Invest West (Blythe Miller) challenged the leader just before the last fence and won by 1 1/2 lengths. Tres Touche (David Bentley) hung on for second, with P.C. Plod (Matt McCarron) third. The winner returned $8.60 to win and covered the 2 1/4 miles in 4:09 3/5.


Trained by Hall of Famer Jonathan Sheppard, Invest West won two hurdle stakes in 2000 but did not run over jumps last season. Third in his 2002 debut at Fair Hill in May, the 7-year-old son of Private Account improved to 5-for-20 lifetime and increased his career bankroll to $196,655.


Miller was impressed with her mount's courage in the stretch.


"He really dug in. Tres Touche was having things his way and my horse was running right along," she said. "He had every reason to get tired, but he didn't. He kept trying. In the last eighth, (Tres Touche) started to come back to us - finally - and it gave my horse a little more confidence."

Lightly raced due to tendonitis in his front legs, Invest West won the Grade I Carolina Cup in 2000 and also captured a Grade III stakes in September. He finished seventh in one flat start while prepping for a steeplechase start last summer, but went back on the shelf with leg troubles. Tightened in the Fair Hill start, Invest West responded at Colonial.


"I thought he ran well at Fair Hill, and he had to improve off that," said Sheppard, who won his 11th National Steeplechase Association race of 2002. "He's never had a full bowed tendon, but he's got somewhat enlarged tendons and we just keep an eye on them."

Also at Colonial Saturday, Frank Martin's Corruption (Tom Foley) rolled to a $25,000 maiden hurdle win for trainer Eddie Graham. The 4-year-old son of Silver Deputy won for the first time in four hurdle starts and paid a healthy $34.80. Colonial hosts two more steeplechases on July 20, with the schedule shifting to Saratoga the following week.
