BoyleSports Pay Out On Dettori Four-Timer But Breathe Sigh Of Relief
It was 1996 when Frankie Dettori rode the magnificent seven winners as Ascot during the British Champions’ Day meeting, and it left the bookmakers with empty pockets.
Twenty-three years on, the 48-year old jockey is riding better than ever and completed a stunning four-timer on day three of the Royal Ascot Festival.
BoyleSports were facing their biggest pay out in history had the brilliant jockey completed the six-timer so there was a sigh of relief when Biometric and Harry Bentley won the Britannia Stakes, ending the punters dream of the Frankie clean sweep. However, there was still a hefty pay out on the four-timer with a large number of winning accumulators.
A’Ali (5/1) got the day off to a flying start for Dettori after winning the Norfolk Stakes by a neck, holding off Ventura Rebel in a thrilling finish. It was a winner for Sir Michael Stoute then in the 3.05 race as Frankie cruised across the winning like onboard Sangarius (13/2) in the Hampton Court Stakes.
The double for John Gosden was up next with Star Catcher (4/1) obliging in the Ribblesdale Stakes and Stradivarius (Evens) landing the Gold Cup for the second year in a row.
The BoyleSports traders managed to scrape themselves off the trading floor in the office on Thursday after Frankie Dettori’s almost six-timer.
It would have been our biggest pay out and not just for us but the whole industry.
There was a massive sigh of relief when Turgenev was headed by Biometric but a massive congratulations to all our winning customers who had the brilliant four-timer.
