One Paddy Power got a stunning treat on Halloween yesterday, as he went through the card at Fairview in South Africa to the tune of exactly €17,338.88 from just a 50c each-way bet.
This punter gambled on all nine favourites to win at Fairview yesterday afternoon, and they did just that. The accum got off to the perfect start at 10.40am as Blast won by half a length at odds of 5/2, and that was the biggest threat to this fella’s bet all afternoon. All eight of the other winners won by half a length or more, meaning there was no heart-stopping drama as they crossed the line. Covariance was the biggest price winning favourite at 9/2 in the 2.45pm, while Spiagga (13/10) was the most convincing winner in the 11.40am, winning by almost eight lengths.
It is a mind-blowing punt, and to Paddy’s pockets have been emptied with all nine favourites duly obliging across the waters.
