Déise Native Lands €64,000 Horse Racing Bonanza
A punter in County Waterford is toasting their Horse Racing know-how after four nags landed them a stunning five-figure windfall.
The anonymous customer went into a BoyleSports shop in the county to strike their bets, placing a €5 each-way accumulator on four horses at the evening meeting at Southwell.
The journey got off to the perfect in the 6.00 and 6.30 races, with 9/1 shots Contingency Fee and Bond Angel doing the business, before Greenview Paradise (10/1) won by a nose in the 7.30 to leave the bet one leg away from the jackpot.
It all came down to the last race of the evening but Termonator (8/1) landed the spoils ensuring the punter would be back in the shop to say ‘Hasta La Vista Baby’ and walk off with an initial €49,914.05.
Not content with that however, they had placed a further €1 Lucky 15 bet on the same four horses, which added €14,519 to the overall winnings.
When it was all added up, the lucky punter walked out of the shop with an astounding €64,433.05, all for a total investment of €25.
