Co Louth Shop Pays Out Over €10,000 on a €4 Accumulator
There were joyous scenes today in a BoyleSports betting shop in Ardee Co Louth as one happy customer collected a whopping €10,234.07 from a €4 accumulator.
The anonymous punter placed a €2 each way accumulator on five selections in horse racing consisting of the 14:40, 15:15 at Kempton and the 13:50, 14:25 and 15:35 at Doncaster.
The first winner who got things off to a flying start was Invincible Army in the 13:50 Doncaster at 4/1, who won by two lengths with the favourite Equilateral back in third.
Two 7/1 winners were next on the betting slip as Petrus obliged for trainer Brian Meehan in the 14:25 Doncaster and George Bowen grabbed success for trainer Richard Fahey in the 14:40 Kempton.
Remaining focused on the next race at Kempton, the customer was cheering on Forbidden Planet who brought the tally of wins to four from five in the 15:15 for jockey Jason Watson.
Now down to the last and final leg of the accumulator as the long ante post favourite Auxerre won comfortably for Charlie Appleby in the big race of the day, the Lincoln at Doncaster at 5/2.
After a victorious day, the punter went home with €10,234.07 in their pocket from a small stake of just €4.
