Despite British and Irish racing having been pulled up for now, one plucky punter has scooped a cool £18,009.82 after placing a £2 each-way yankee on the action at USA’s Gulfstream Park last weekend.
The 25-year-old Cambridge bettor had three remarkable winning selections priced at 33/1, 12/1, and 7/1, whilst the other selection was a non-runner.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “This punter made some really shrewd selections at Gulfstream, including 33/1 shot La Viexa to get the ball rolling. He clearly knows his US racing and we can only congratulate him on his big win.”
