Paddy Power was back on home soil on Sunday after a couple of days
milking the hospitality working at Newmarket.
He thought keeping watch on the barbecue — with one eye on the Tour de France, cricket and GAA — would be as hot as the action got. Wrong.
Paddy’s day was spectacularly interrupted with some weapons grade punting from Scotland. He nearly choked on his barbecued ribs when news of this winning multiple from today’s horse racing filtered through.
One loyal customer picked six winners (and one non runner) on Sunday’s Perth meeting.
- He placed a £50 accumulator at face-melting odds of 9,406/1.
- There was a winning odds promise too, worth £195,620.75.
Paddy Power’s winning odds promise guarantees punters the best price on a horse. If the horse drifts and still wins, you get the longer odds; if you back it at a bigger price before it shortens, you keep your smarter selection. And when it clicks big time, like in this case from Perth, it’s really celebration time.
We didn’t think this kind of luck was possible (outside of Peter Crouch snaring Abbey Clancy). Nice. Work. Fella.
Here are the customer’s winning selections in full. While most people enter Monday morning with some degree of The Fear, this punter can bask in the knowledge he can now afford to buy everyone in Perth a deep fried Mars bar and a can of Irn-Bru, if he wants. Or a damn fine house. Probably the latter.
