Paddy Power refunds bets after Sandown jockey winning post gaffe

Paddy's righting wrongs again

Justice Refund


Pineapple on pizza. Tottenham winning anything. The Simpsons post-season 10.

Some things just aren’t right, y’know?

Indeed, there’s so much in the world that seems chuffed up that Paddy hardly needs to add any more injustices to it.

That’s why he’s always on the lookout for a potential Justice Refund – and when he senses something that just doesn’t sit right, our bean counters hit the big red button to at least right the wrong from a punting point of view.

Fresh off forking out for Cristiano Ronaldo’s  – I mean Bruno Fernandes’s –  goal against Uruguay, we’ve spotted another wrong that needs to be righted.

That’s because Saturday afternoon saw what can only be described as the racing equivalent of pulling a Lukaku, as one jockey grabbed a whole hatful for embarrassment and poured it all over himself by stopping at the wrong ‘winning post’ in the 1:10 at Sandown.

Call Me Lord under Ben Bromley looked to have the honours sewn up after holding off spirited challenges in the home straight, but eased off at the first of two finish lines – cos sometimes one just isn’t enough, right? – allowing Dolphin Square to make a splash and nip ahead at the second, actual, official finish line.

Now, we’re all for dramatic finishes and last-minute drama at Power Tower in sporting events, but we want it to be all on the level for our punters too.

So we’ve made the call to take a hit in the interests of justice and fair play and refund as a free bet all singles on Call Me Lord.

That’s at the not inconsiderable cost of £65,000 or thereabouts according to our number-crunchers, but fair is fair.

Now, time to cancel the Christmas party…

The refund applies to single bets only on Call Me Lord in the 1:10 at Sandown on December 3rd,, 2022 placed both in our retail shops and online. Stakes will be refunded as a free bet.
