After a massive weekend of Australian sport and racing, we wrap up all of the action from the major Daily Fantasy Sports sites. The AFL returned to it’s full nine-game compliment after the bye rounds and proved to be one of the most exciting rounds of football in recent history while racing returned to Randwick and Flemington.
With some great Australian racing meets on throughout the weekend, the Saturday Metro Mayhem was once again the highlight of the weekend at TopBetta. DFR member Donkey was good enough to take 2nd place on the day but it was TopBetta regular Freelance who claimed the top prize of $3,000.
The tournament brought in 38 contestants competing for a prize-pool of $7,500 and ended in a tight finish with Freelance just 15,000 BettaBucks ahead of his nearest opponent. Freelance came home with a wet sail with winners in the final two races of the day, including a win on Idatwo at $6.80 in the last at Morphettville.
