A SHREWD punter was celebrating a ‘once in a lifetime’ winner after a crazy ten-fold bet netted him thousands from just £3.65.
The ‘ridiculous’ bet, which drew widespread praise from fellow punters, resulted in a tasty £3,536.87 windfall.
Amazingly, the odds of all ten horses winning were a giant 968-1.
But they did just that on a bumper Saturday of action.
First up was Adnaan in the 1.00 at Newmarket where Ben Curtis steered the 6-4 shot to a length-and-a-half victory from 4-1 Laheg.
Just 15 minutes later Mojo Star romped home at Newbury at 1-6 odds – the first of three straight winners there for the punter.
Masekela won the 1.45 by just a head as 6-4 joint-favourite under William Buick before Hukum hosed up in the 2.20 to scoop £39,697 for connections in the 1m5½f contest.
Taj Alriyadh made it three from three in his young career with victory by just a head as 11-10 favourite in the 2.40 at Ripon.
It was back to Newmarket for the 3.05 then where Great Ambassador triumphed as 5-2 favourite under Richard Kingscote for trainer Ed Walker.
Minella Trump then won the 3.20 two-horse race at Perth by seven lengths to keep the bet rolling with ease.
Papcito kept up his 100 per cent record with a half-length victory over 6-1 Rabat in the 3.35 at Doncaster.
That meant it was down to two races at Market Rasen to land the jackpot.
Coole Well did the job for in-form trainer Fergal O’Brien in the 2m½f contest over hurdles at 5.00.
‘ONCE IN A LIFETIME’
Then just over half an hour later Fontana Ellissi demolised rivals by six-and-a-half lengths to land the bet in style.
The punter wrote alongside a photo of their winning bet: “As far as £3.65 10 horse accas go, this surely has to be up there, if I don’t say so myself. Get in!”
One impressed racing fan said in response to the winner: “Ridiculous, well done mate.”
Another posted: “Absolutely fantastic for a small stake it’s a once in a lifetime, hopefully not, very well done.”
And a fellow punter wrote: “Cracking. I feel good landing a double!”
