There were joyous scenes in Thurles on Wednesday evening as one lucky punter selected a brilliant 6 consecutive winners on day two of the Punchestown festival at the Co Kildare venue.

 

The punter placed numerous wagers that consisted of a €2 accumulator, €0.30 trebles, €0.20 five-folds and €0.20 four-folds, all amounting to a stake of €12.20 on six horses in Punchestown.

 

The first horse that started the ball rolling was Musical Slave at a lovely price of 7/1 with Philip Hobbs and Jonjo O’Neill Jr making the journey from the UK worthwhile.

 

Sarah Kinsella, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “This was a fantastic bet for our Thurles native to land with all six horses selected obliging from odds as big as 7/1. It’s not easy picking six winners so fair play to the punter who has collected a tidy sum of €13,041.07 from us and we wish them happy spending."
