Paddy’s Pick 5: £/€100,000 split as 5 players hit the jackpot

Some savvy Pick 5 players are in the money after hitting the £/€100K jackpot.


Well it was good while it lasted! No sooner had Paddy’s Pick 5 reached the €/100,000 jackpot than it was promptly won.

On Saturday, five Paddy players pocketed a share of the loot by bagging all five winners of our selected races.

It was the 7/1 shot Urban Sprawl who got the job done in our first race, the 14:05 at Goodwood. Just 20 minutes later Frankie Dettori and Covey followed suit at Haydock and our winners were nearly half-way there.

When Chipstead won at York (14:40) he knocked a fair few entries out of the running, before we were back to Haydock where Dramatised took the 15:30. So it was all eyes on the Curragh where Paddington blazed home in the Irish 2,000 Guineas to seal a nice payday our Pick 5 jackpot winners who shared the spoils. Huzzah!

It means the prize pot resets to £/€25,000 for Epsom Derby day next Saturday, 3rd of June.

And just in case this is your first rodeo – this is how it works.
