Punter turns £7 into mega £75k with record-time racing six-fold

| 26.11.2017

A pensioner from Cheltenham racked up an incredible win on Thursday’s horse racing action. The 64-year-old turned just £7 into a whopping £75,000 in record time, backing six horses between 12:40 and 14:05 yesterday.

Her original win came in at £25,000, but this lucky punter saw her profits tripled thanks to our Best Odds Guaranteed offer. That offer gives our customers the horse’s starting price if it’s bigger than the price they’ve taken.

In this case, that meant an extra £50k for our plucky punter! So, how did her day of joy unfold?

First off, Ger O’Neill rode Monsieur Jimmy to victory at Southwell, followed by two more winners at the Nottinghamshire track. They were German Bright and our punter’s longest-priced winner, the 10/1 shot Midnight Malibu.

Our lucky customer, who had a 10p Lucky 63 and a 35p each-way six-fold, then turned her attention to the racing at Taunton and Ludlow.

First off, Colin Tizzard’s charge Shoal Bay breezed to victory at Taunton, before Nick Schofield edged out the competition on Dark Mahler at Ludlow.

That left one nerve-racking race. But our punter claimed glory as Red Admirable won the 14:05 at Taunton by just 3/4 of a length, to confirm a life-changing day for the plucky pensioner.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “This is one of the most remarkable bets we’ve paid out on all year. Not only did this customer correctly predict the outcome of six races, but she did it in less than an hour and a half which really is record time. Her windfall could have come to £25,000 but thanks to our Best Odds Guaranteed offer, she has walked away with an additional £50,000.

“With Cheltenham’s three day meeting kicking off this afternoon, it is quite fitting that she hails from the area, and we just pray it’s not a sign of things to come over the weekend.”
