Dubliner Scoops €5,000 Consolation After Missing Out On €73,000

A punter in Dublin is toasting a tasty four-figure win on the horses this weekend but has been left thinking what could have been had they landed just one more winner.

The customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, placed a €1 Lucky 15 bet in one of our shops in the capital on Thursday for four horses running on that evening’s racing card at Chelmsford.

9/1 shot Full Intention got the ball rolling in the 7.15 race, while It’s Not Unusual (7/1) won the 8.15. But the bet received a major boost when 50/1 outsider Victoria Drummond claimed the last race of the evening by a mere half a length.

That ensured a stunning return of €5,147 for the savvy Dubliner, however had 10th placed Kenstone won the 8.15 it would have triggered a jaw-dropping payout of €73,600.30.
