Boylesports have announced a big winner on the horse racing from Wolverhampton last Friday. The punter in question got a huge €9,632 from a bet of just €15 on the all-weather card. The stake itself was on a 0.5 each way Lucky 15 bet.
So it was an ambitious gamble but one that managed to pay off at the end of the night. Diamond Reflection (7/1) ran home in the 5.10 race at Wolverhampton to kick the beat off into winning gear. Then Grey Destiny (12/1) War And Glory (7/1) followed it up in the 6.15 and 6.45 meetings.
Then there was a half hour wait before the final pick of the night took to the track. That final runner was an 8/1 shot Perfect Refuge, who came home to see the punter claim the massive winning in what BoyleSports described as a ‘savvy’ selection from their customer.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “These horses weren’t all favourites so we have to tip our hats the savvy picks made by our online customer. It was the perfect start to the year and we hope they enjoy splashing out with their winnings which nearly hit €10,000 from their €15 stake.”
Sunday’s horse racing action from Fairyhouse landed a nice windfall for a Meath punter. They collected a nice €11,000 win from a Lucky 15. The punter had played a €3 Lucky 15 bet (€45 stake) on the afternoon action at Fairyhouse.
The action on the bet all kicked off with a win for Chief Justice at 5/1, a narrow win by pretty much a nostril and nothing more. Delta Work at 10/3 followed up and then when a big 16/1 shots Dinnie’s Vinner came home for three wins for three, the bet got really exciting.
There was then an hour’s wait for Wonder Laish to just about hang on and get the win in the 3.10 pm.
The bet landed the punter a nice €10,749 from Boylesports, but a 10% bonus came into effect as the bet had four winners, bringing the total windfall to €11,823.90.
Boylesports’ Aoife Heffron said: “We are delighted to see one of our customers scoop such a fantastic windfall this close to Christmas and hope that their €11,823.90 makes for a very special Christmas for them and their loved ones.”
It is the stuff that dreams are made of. A punter turned their €1 Lucky 15 into a whopping €100k this week on Tuesday evening. The bet was struck at Paddy Power on horse racing action.
The first leg was Sfumato in the 15.40 at Catterick who came home at a big 9/1 price. It was then a wait for the action from Newcastle were Consequences (16/1), Burford Brown (9/2) and Glengarry who rounded off the full house at as a staggering 66/1 odds winner in the final race of the evening.
So the entire each way wager certainly didn’t rely on any strong favourites to come through the field. It was a pretty astonishing feat of betting landing all of those winners at big odds right from the get-go.
What did that mean for the winner? A pretty satisfying return of €112,908.
Two punters, both from Louth made bookmaker Boylesports dig deep into their pockets over the weekend as the bettors scooped winnings of over €12,000 between them last Friday.
Both punters had played a €1 Lucky 15 bet with the bookmaker on Friday evening’s racing.
One of them had picked out four winners from Newcastle which included 12/1 shot Mudawwan to pocket a cool €7,292.
The second punter picked up a €5,190 return with three selections from Dundalk and one from Newcastle in their Lucky 15. Both of the winners were from Louth.
Boylesports’ Lawrence Lyons said: “The results just weren’t going our way at Dundalk and Newcastle with winners coming at us from all angles and we must congratulate both our Louth punters, who unbeknownst to each other, served us a Friday night mauling between them with their astute picking.”
There was a nice €6,000 win for a Louth punter this week on the racing. The punter had played a small €3 Lucky 15 (for a total of a €45 stake) on Tuesday’s cards from Ayr, Wolverhampton and Ballinrobe.
A Lucky 15 comprises of 15 separate bets from four selections (4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and a four-fold accumulator). The bet was struck at Boylesports with the selection being Qasr at 13/2 in the 5.15 Ayr, Descendant at 11/1 in the 5.40 Wolverhampton, Santorini Sun at 11/4 in the 4.50 and Final Treat at 13/2 in the 5.20, both at Ballinrobe.
Three of the options in the wager all won their respective races, with one non-runner, so the customer initially saw returns of €5,632.50. But Boylesports run a best odds guaranteed on multiples (two meetings a day) and that meant an extra €1,000 was added to the total.
Boylesports Spokesperson Aoife Heffron said: “What a nice way to kick of the week with a €6,632.50 windfall for a savvy €3 Lucky 15!
“We want to wish our winning Louth punter all the very best with their winnings especially the extra €1,000 that was added as a result of our special best odds guaranteed.”
Last Sunday at Pontefract saw Champion jockey Silvestre de Sousa have a stunning day at the office. He paired up with trainer Mick Appleby to win all four of their rides to take the meeting by storm and it was a costly performance for the bookmakers, by the Jockey. Betfred reported losing £2.5 million on De Sousa’s efforts on the weekend.
De Sousa was in the saddle for Michele Strogoff, Big Country, Future Score and Classic Pursuit – at combined odds of 654-1, with a Betfred spokesman observing: “De Sousa is undoubtedly the punters’ favourite – and he obliged big time.
“Congratulations to thousands of our customers who went nuts after the Brazilian had a perfect day. Our high street customers have had an absolute field day combining the four rides of the most popular of jockeys.”
Bookmaker Boylesports was another operator who got hit pretty hard as well with them having to shell out over €16,000 for a stake of just €15.50 on a Lucky 31 to just one customer. That epic winning bet comprised De Sousa’s four winning mounts along with another selection, Mr Orange.
BoyleSports spokeswoman Aoife Heffron said: She added: “De Sousa’s four winners were a popular selection with punters, seeing a host of BoyleSports customers receive relatively large returns for choosing to get behind the champion jockey. Let’s just say the good day we had on Saturday was undone in about four minutes on Sunday.”
