Stunning start to Boxing Day racing as 125-1 and 100-1 winners shock at Wetherby and Limerick on King George day

, Stunning start to Boxing Day racing as 125-1 and 100-1 winners shock at Wetherby and Limerick on King George day

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.

Ballycallan Fame was unconsidered in the betting at 125-1

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.
