We’re finally starting to feel like the world is getting back to normal after a long 14 months or so. One thing that has stayed constant throughout is that you crafty punters keep finding ways to give our odds makers a right, good kicking. That was the case again last weekend, as one of punters scored yet another fantastic accumulator at a big price and leaving us feeling the pain as a result.
Our winner – who hails from Navan, Co Meath – predicted the outcome of the first four races of the day at the Curragh on Sunday afternoon to land €3,016 off just a €1 stake. The stunning bet came in at 3,015/1 to make someone’s day, that’s for sure! Let’s tell you how it all came in.
The action at the Curragh started at 13:30 on Sunday and SHE’S TROUBLE (4/1) was the opening selection on the betslip. The Jim Bolger-trained bay filly kept on well under pressure, beating Dissociate by half a length.
Attention then turned to John Patrick Murtagh’s EARLSWOOD in the 14:05, who set off at 11/2. The bay colt edged out Arturo Toscanini by a length and three quarters. That result brought our bold punt half-way home.

Next up was the 14:40 contest, where our punter was desperate for HELVIC DREAM (8/1) to cause an upset and beat Aidan O’Brien’s Broome, who went off as the 10/11 favourite. Colin Keane rode brilliantly on Helic Dream to edge out the favourite by a short head. Three down, one to go.
Finally, our cute customer was left with the highest odds chance on the punt, with EMPRESS JOSEPHINE going off at 14/1 in the Irish 1,000 Guineas at 15:15. Seamie Heffernan was on the Ballydoyle runner and fended off Joan Of Arc to win by a short head.
That meant our lucky punter scooped the €3,016 prize pot. So, all we can do is welcome yet another lucky winner to our Punting Hall Of Fame!
