Coral to refund ante post bets on suspended Godolphin runners
Coral have today announced they will refund ante post stakes on bets struck on Certify and Desert Blossom for the Qipco 1,000 Guineas and Artigiano and Restraint Of Trade for the Qipco 2,000 Guineas, after the quartet were among 11 Godolphin-owned horses suspended from running. Bets on Certify for the Investec Oaks, and Restraint Of Trade for the Investec Derby will also be refunded.
“The circumstances that have led to the four Godolphin Classic entries being suspended from running are unprecedented, and while ante post betting by its very nature carries a level of risk, we think it is only fair to refund stakes on this occasion,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
Following the suspension, Hot Snap was cut to 11-4 favourite by Coral for the 1,000 Guineas.
