Sea Siren takes out Doomben 10,000
TAB Sportsbet customers figured the Doomben 10,000 would be a two-horse race and that's exactly how it panned out.
The Fixed Odds market for the race saw Sea Siren and Buffering hold the most money in the race with the pair starting at the head of betting.
Sea Siren attracted bets of $5,000 @ $4.20, $4,000 @ $4.20 and $3,000 @ $4.40.
The three-year-old greeted the judge, much to the delight of her backers, as she outsprinted Buffering in the run to the line.

Race favourite Wazn was supported from $4.80 into $4.00, however, he failed to figure in the finish.
