Jubilant punter claims over €38,000 on accumulator

A €32 bet on a four-race accumulator left the winner, a retiree in his sixties, with €38,565.85 by the end of yesterday’s racing.

A MAN IN his sixties from Dublin’s north side has won in excess of €38,000 after accurately predicting the winners of four races drawn from yesterday’s action at Leopardstown, Doncaster and Cheltenham.

The retiree, who has since declined to be identified, placed the €32 bet, a Lucky Fifteen accumulator, with bookmakers Paddy Power.

Victories with Citizenship (10/1) at Leopardstown, Calgary Bay (12/1) at Doncaster and Batonnier (12/1) at Cheltenham drew the unnamed customer within a single result of a mammoth pay-day, but it wasn’t until Katie Walsh’s successful ride in the 3.20 at Leopardstown that the outcome was guaranteed.

Paddy Power spokesperson Sharon McHugh claimed the bookmaker was “delighted” with the story:

“It’s not often you see €32 being turned in to €38,000 but when it happens it’s fantastic.”
