Louth Punter Plucks 100/1 Winner From Virtual Race And Bags Over €17,000

A punter in the Wee County pulled off an unlikely stroke on Tuesday by winning over €17,000 on an incredible Virtual Horse Racing bet.

The customer placed a €5 each-way double in one of our County Louth shops on two horses at SprintValley and had their eyebrows raised when Million Bushels won the 2:57 at 28/1. It left them waiting on Sea Disco, who was a 100/1 shot, in the 3:32 at the same track.

When the second horse crossed the winning line it landed an incredible double and sent €15,503 into the pocket of the incredulous punter. The icing on the cake came in the form of two €10 each-way singles on the same two horses,

…which added an extra €1,626 to the winnings and resulted in a total payout of €17,129.

We congratulate them on their big win and hope they enjoy spending the winnings which, unfortunately for us, are not as virtual as the horses who romped home on Tuesday!
