Paddy’s Hall of Fame: Punter nets nearly £5k from 70p stake after ludicrous Leicester results

There were some ludicrous results in Leicester on Sunday but one punter was laughing all the way to the bank.

Comments

One lucky punter pocketed nearly £5,000 off a 70p bet to leave Paddy Power reeling after an outrageous run of results at Leicester races on Sunday.

The Newcastle-based bettor landed a £4,789 payout when all three selections in his 5 pence each-way Patent (stake 70p) won at the eye-popping odds of 6,841/1.

The lucky lad or lass got their day off to an excellent start in the 12.20pm – a 1m7f juvenile maiden hurdle – when Blue Slate (50/1) upset the odds to see off the favourite Opine with a gutsy display.

The Barry Brennan-trained three-year-old went to post a big outsider, but our racing fan got onboard even earlier at odds of 100/1.

Next up was a 2m 4f handicap chase and it was another result for the bookies when 40/1 shot Gustav disputed the lead over the last and was driven out to see off Fact Flow by a neck.

A good day was then turned into an absolute stunner as the Richard Newland-trained Theo (20/1) took the spoils in a 2m 4f handicap chase for veteran runners over 10 years old. Despite being the shortest price runner of the three selections, he duly completed the outrageous Patent (three singles, 3 doubles & a treble) by holding off Sir Ivan and favourite Garde La Victoire by half a length.

Such an unlikely run of results meant a miserable Monday for the man in charge of the money as the each-way patent all clicked to give our pal the maximum return from his daring play.

A Patent is made up of seven bets (three singles, three doubles and a treble) but the fact that all three selections won at such big prices added a lot of icing to the cake for our intrepid punter.

All we can do is tip our cap and say “well done and welcome to our Punting Hall of Fame!”
