Dublin Racing Punter Scoops €8,000…By A Short Head

A Dublin punter landed the perfect boost just in time for the Christmas shopping period this week when their savvy Horse Racing knowledge rewarded them with a four-figure windfall.

The anonymous customer placed a €1 Lucky 15, totalling €15, in one of our shops in the capital on Wednesday afternoon.

With Flaming Charmer (17/2) and Radical Archie (12/1) winning in quick succession at Chepstow, attention turned to the evening meeting at Kempton where the bet rested on two more selections.

The joy was so nearly scuppered on the third leg but Whelans Way got up by a short head in the 4.40, leaving Flaming Spear to land the spoils in the 6.40 and trigger the handsome payout.

Initial winnings of €7,349 were boosted further thanks to a 10% bonus for four winners in a Lucky 15, meaning the customer pocketed a grand total of €8,083.90 for their day’s work.
