Punter €80k richer after epic day of Punchestown racing9th May 2019 / lee
A life-changing sum of money was won recently by a Kildare punter, who enjoyed a stunning day of racing success. They had played a €2.50 bet too leave bookmaker Boylesports digging deep into their pockets.
Big wins like that don’t come about without some ambitious betting of course. This successful bet was sevenfold accumulator from the recent Punchestown Festival and it returned €84,000. Staggeringly, more than half of that total was actually through bonuses.
The 7 fold acca actually won €36,373.62 on its own. However, when the bet was settled, the best odds guaranteed that Boylesports offer bumped the winnings up to a whole new level. It added a whopping €48,277.71 on to the bet.
The best odds guarantee ensures that punters are paid out when they finish with bigger prices than what they were when the bet was struck.
Musical Slave (7/1), Zero Ten (13/8), Elimay (5/1) and Minella Indo (5/1) all did the business for the punter in the opening races of the day, before Ruby Walsh delivered a win on Kemboy, the jockey bringing the curtain down on his career.
So when 1/2 selection Colreavy and 13/8 shot Gypsy Island won the 6.40 and 7.45 respectively, that made it sevens wins from seven predictions for the punter.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for Boylesports said: “We have no doubt that our big winner in Kildare will remember this day for a very long time and rightly so.
“To scoop over €84,000 from a flutter of just €2.50 is an absolute masterstroke, but they deserve every cent because not everyone can nail 7 winners on one racecard. We send them massive congratulations!”
