A plucky racing punter has scooped a whopping £150k from backing five horses that were all carrying the No.10 saddlecloth.
The customer placed the 50p each-way five-fold bet on Saturday evening’s racing and is now richer to the tune of £151,488.10.
14/1 shot Mandarian Monarch kicked off the winning No.10 selections in the 18:45 at Tramore, followed by Morrooj (6/1) and Sir Canford (12/1) over at Chepstow.
Fellow No.10 horse in the racecard, Red Vermillion, beat Willie Mullins’ odds-on poke in the 19:45 at Tramore before Das Kapital (14/1) wrapped up proceedings in South Wales, scooping a cool £150k from just £5.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Punters have all sorts of ways of making their selections, and sometimes it’s as simple as picking horses by their saddlecloth number, which has clearly worked wonders on this occasion.”
