Lucky horse racing punter wins incredible £150k from £1 bet… after picking only No10s

ONE lucky horse racing punter won £150,000 after placing a 50p each-way bet on five nags.

The Ladbrokes customer picked out a selection of horses across two meetings, at Tramore and Chepstow, on Saturday night.

The Mirror reports that all the horses were No10s on their respective racecards and they all won.

The £1 total bet on the five-fold went on Mandarian Monarch at 14/1 in the 6.45pm race at Tramore.

This was followed by 6/1 shot Morrooj in the 7pm.

The action switched over to Chepstow with Sir Canford winning at 12/1 in the 7.30pm.

Outsider Red Vermillion, priced at 14/1 triumphed by half-a-length in the Tramore 7.45pm.

The winning run was topped when 14/1 punt Das Kapital won the 8pm at Chepstow to net the bettor a cool £150k.

The winnings came to a stunning total of £151,488.10.

Ladbrokes spokeswoman Jessica O’Reilly told The Mirror: “Punters have all sorts of ways of making their selections.

“And sometimes it’s as simple as picking horses by their saddlecloth number, which has clearly worked wonders on this occasion.”

An each-way bet covers the gambler to get paid out if the horse gets a place, usually second or third, in a race.
