Seven Up! Valentine’s Day Favourites Win Dubliner Just Short of €10,000
An incredible run of results on Valentine’s night set one Dublin punter’s heart racing after the favourites kept winning and triggered a hefty windfall.
The anonymous customer struck a €50 wager in the capital, placing it on the favourites to win all seven horse races at the Friday evening meeting at Southwell.
15/8 shot Three C’s got the ball rolling in the 5.10, but when Love Your Work (6/4f) won the 7.45, it meant six of the first seven races had been won by the market leaders.
That left Luscifer shouldering the responsibility in the last race at 8.15, but the 11/8 favourite made it a stunning clean sweep with a three-and-half-length victory.
The prolific run allowed the punter to return to the shop and exchange their betslip for a stunning total of €9,981.93.
