Eight Is The Magic Number At Fairyhouse

Eight was the magic number at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday with the number eight horse winning the first five races on the card at the County Meath venue.

We can report that a Dublin punter turned their €2 Yankee bet that cost €22 in total into a whopping €18,900 after their four number eight selections all won.

The bet consisted of Slowmotion who won the opening race at 2:40 at odds of 2/1 under Barry Geraghty, Sutton Place who won the 3:15 also at 2/1 under Barry Geraghty whilst the lucky customer also included Just Cause (20/1) to win the 3:50 and BoyleSports Irish Grand National winner Rogue Angel at 25/1.

The punter also availed of our early morning prices and made their winnings bigger with the Mouse Morris trained pair of Just Cause and Rogue Angel winning at the shorter prices of 16/1 each as opposed to the 20/1 and 25/1 availed by the customer.
