Small stakes punter lands £80k

One lucky Sky Bet punter was celebrating a huge win on Thursday after landing nearly £80,000 from a stake of £16.50.

The exotic wager placed on Thursday's horse racing across the meetings at Sedgefield, Haydock, Salisbury and Chelmsford City consisted of a series of 5p each-way eight folds and managed a huge return of £77,931.87 after nine of the 11 selections won.

The biggest price of the nine winners was the Derek Shaw-trained Stun Gun, who was backed at 13/2 ahead of the 6.40 at Chelmsford but returned a point and a half bigger at 8/1.

In total, Sky Bet's Best Odds Guaranteed policy saw the successful punter pick up an extra £17,000 compared to the prices taken when the bet was struck.

Sky Bet representative Michael Shinners said: "A very well done goes to the customer – anyone who nails every winner from the first seven races on an evening card at Chelmsford deserves a considerable payout! And I'm sure the punter is toasting our Best Odds Guaranteed concession this evening for what is effectively a bonus of 17 grand."
