Purist and Lucy Warwick combined to turn PR TipStar - 2019 Belmont Park Round 13 and the overall competition on their heads
Louise Newman-trained nine-year-old gelding Purist's TABtouch tote dividends of 95.80 win and 13.70 place did not put off seven speculative PR TipStar - 2019 Belmont Park Round 13 tippers, including meeting winner Ryan Brady, who was one of two lucky competitors to stake his big bet on the veteran galloper.
Dalyellup-based Brady, whose PR TipStar - 2019 Belmont Park tipping alias is Rb8686, was not having all that much joy until Purist's 50th start resulted in him taking out the Vale Beaux Art Handicap at huge odds. David Keats (Keatsy11) had his Round 13 big bet on Purist as well but Brady's Belmont Newmarket Day total was four points greater than the former so the latter collected the $250 cheque from Perth Racing and the $250 voucher from Crown Perth.
Unsurprisingly, Brady and Keats have leapfrogged Glenn Montague (Glennm) on the PR TipStar - 2019 Belmont Park leaderboard, Purist's shock success lifting them to first and second respectively with, weather permitting, six rounds left.
