Two Lucky Louth Punters Turn €2 Into €12,481
They say that lightening never strikes twice but two punters in County Louth begged to differ when they both landed similar bets and scooped mega weekend bonuses.
Both punters placed €1 Lucky 15 bets in different BoyleSports shops in the county on Friday and picked four horses each over the evening racing action at Dundalk and Newcastle.
Both customers picked out Testa Rossa to win the 8.15 at Newcastle, and the first lucky punter completed their coup with a hat-trick of wins at Newcastle, including 12/1 shot Mudawwan, who only narrowly landed the 6.45 by a head. They were able to pick up a total of €7,291.90 for their efforts.
The second savvy punter picked their three other winners at Dundalk, seeing their ambitious bet crowned when 9/2 Park Row upset the JP McManus-owned favourite Los Alamos in the last race of the evening.
That triggered a payout of €5,189.80, meaning we paid both customers a total of €12,481.70 in less than three hours of racing.
