That’s a wrap for the 2016 Coolmore Classic, a classic one at that. My tips fared ok, finishing 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th but I missed out on the trifecta which was my best bet. The quinella paid over $30 though, so it wasn’t a complete loss.
This post has the complete results for the Coolmore Classic from first to last, I found it really hard to find these on Google after the race so I thought I’d put them up here in case anyone else was having trouble finding the full results, including the margins between each horse.

The two headlining favourites who were expected to easily walk away winners in UFC 196, Holly Holm (who beat the previously undefeated Rhonda Rousey) and the “Notorious” Conor McGregor (the undisputed pound for pound king of UFC) were both beaten by fighters with better ground games, both fighters were beaten by submission, which did surprise a lot of people out there, but not everyone who was paying attention.
Neither of the fights were boring, and neither of the fights lasted less than 10 seconds! But, for the many punters who had bets on either and/or both to win, there may have been some more sore heads after the fight than just Holm and McGregor’s.
