Wexford punter wins almost €17,000 with €7.50 bet
A lucky punter from County Wexford won almost €17,000 for a €7.50 stake at the Curragh over the weekend.
Boylesports said the punter, who does not wish to be identified, placed the money on its Lucky 15, raking in a whopping €16,916.35.
The bet consisted of four horses all racing at the Curragh, Penny Pepper in the 2.50, In Salutem in the 3.20, Flight Risk in the 3.50 and Parish Hall.
With all horses winning their respective races the punter was set to claim a €15,378.50 windfall, but BoyleSports' 10 per cent bonus offer (if you have four winners or more in a Lucky 15 you get 10 per cent of the winnings added to your total return) resulted in an extra €1,537.85 bringing the total winnings to €16,916.35.
