Lightning Strikes Twice For Sligo Punter Who Nets €138,000 From Two Bets
A punter in Co. Sligo is toasting their horse racing knowledge after sensationally bagging a second five-figure win in the space of four months.
They rang in their latest winning wager staking a total of €15.50 on five horses in a €0.50 Lucky 31.
All horses were running at Newcastle on Tuesday and while 6/1 pick Royal Birth finished last in the 5.00, victories for Sanaadh (14/1), Ventura Lightning (11/1), New Dynasty (16/1) and Moretti (28/1) were enough to trigger the windfall.
The winning run was worth an initial €19,199.50, but because all four horses won at bigger starting prices than when they were picked out,
a best odds guarantee kicked in and took the total haul to a jaw-dropping total of €56,159.50.
That made it two mammoth payouts in recent months after a previous punt from the same stake in the autumn picked up just short of €82,700.
Our Sligo customer is beginning to make it look easy and we have to send them huge congratulations on yet another big win. They have picked up a life-changing sum of money in recent months and we can only salute their savvy selections!
