KING GEORGE day started with a bang as 125-1 and 100-1 winners struck at Wetherby and Limerick.
Both outsiders saw off the well-fancied favourites into second ensuring a tough start for punters.
In the opener at Wetherby, Nick Kent’s Ballycallan Fame was a cosy winner despite being sent off a huge 125-1.
The mare was making her first start for a new stable and the Kent team will have a Boxing Day to remember as she scooted up by over ten lengths.
Jockey Charlie Hammond couldn’t believe his luck as Ballycallan Fame streaked away from favourite Global Harmony.
If 125-1 wasn’t big enough for you, you could have backed her at 177 on the Betfair Exchange!
And just 25 minutes later there was another triple-figure winner.
This time it was in Ireland as Awkwafina stunned odds-on jolly Palm Beach.
It was the horses first ever run over hurdles but was another horse having her very first run for a new stable.
The 100-1 stunner just got the better of Palm Beach in a tight-battle after the last flight.
It’s unlikely that anything similar will occur in the King George at Kempton later this afternoon.
But then again, Black Op is currently a 100-1 chance in the feature due off at 3.00.
