British and Irish Horse Racing may be suspended but that didn’t stop one of our plucky punters going Down Under to turn 50p into over £10,000 with an each-way Lucky 31 at Randwick in Australia.
The mystery bettor from London picked out five horses on Saturday’s card and eventually collected a sum of £10,898.90 from a total stake of £31.
Among our man’s selections were Entente at a colossal 25/1, King’s Legacy at 11/1 and Raheen House, who finished ninth in last year’s Ebor, at 15/2.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “With no racing on in Britain or Ireland, this customer turned his attention to the international stage. His efforts were nothing short of incredible and we can only congratulate him on his superb win.”
