A lucky women has turned a measly $7.50 AUD into more than $410,000 AUD selecting horses solely on their names at last nights Goodood meeting in UK.

The single mother of two placed £4.52 in bets on five horses which returned her more than £246,000 with bookmaker William Hill.

The bets consisted of 10 x 10p each way doubles, 10 x 10p each way trebles, a 5 x 5p each way fourfold and a 1p EW fivefold for a total stake of £4.52.

Bet:

Rupert Adams, a spokesman for William Hill told The Sun: “Some of our racing traders have been in the game for 40 years and none of them can remember such an astonishing bet that so nearly cost us a million.

“A few were almost having heart attacks watching the final race, but the punter inside all of us was cheering on the lady’s last selection and it was in front for a long way.

“But I am not sure if the boss would approve of that. It was every punter’s bet of a lifetime – winning a fortune for less than a fiver.

“A few quid outlay and the lady has a new house – talk about finding your dream home.”

Mr Adams said the woman likes to occasionally “bet for fun” and chooses her horses based on their names.
