WIDE RECEIVER won the 2.50 at Fontwell Park on the day of the Super Bowl netting a fortune for lucky Ladbrokes punters.
The bookies were counting the cost after the horse trained by C P Mortlock won the 2.50 at Fontwell Park just as punters entered Ladbrokes branches up and down the country and logged on to place their bets on the game with several investing their stake for the showcase event in the runner who returned a 13/2 winner.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “NFL punters are rejoicing one of the best coincidence bets in history and we take out hats off to those who had the faith.”
