, Genius horse racing punter wins £58,500 from just £6 after correctly calling four results at Hexham

A GENIUS horse racing punter turned a measly £6 into more than £58,500 thanks to this stunning four-fold.

The punter, who placed the bet with Paddy Power, singled out four horses to do the job on a sleepy Sunday afternoon at Hexham.

The coup took some doing, seeing as none of the horses was shorter than 5-1 in the market.

And all in all the gamble was landed at gigantic odds of 9755-1, scooping a total of £58,533.

It all started with the outsider of the acca landing in the first.

Sweet Flora obliged at odds of 11-1 in the 2.10pm race last weekend.

The Kenny Johnson-trained seven-year-old hosed up by seven lengths in the handicap hurdle race over two miles.

One from one, the next to come in was Tim Easterby’s Sheriff Garrett.

He gained his third course and distance win over the two mile four furlong trip at very generous odds of 11-2.

Many would have cashed out by now but the plucky punter from Andover held their nerve – and it proved wise when the third leg rolled in too, but only just.

Classical Milano (5-1) was fighting for third three from home but powered on, only to come close to being pipped on the line by Welsh Reign.

That meant the whole thing all came down to O’Connell Street in the 4.15pm.

Sent off at 11-2, the Denise Foster-trained seven-year-old made light work of his rivals, trouncing them by five lengths for the easiest of wins.

And the easiest of cash windfalls for the shrewd punter.
