Oldest Female Punter Does the Double
The world’s oldest female punter has completed the ultimate horse racing double today after meeting both Frankie Dettori & AP McCoy inside of 48hrs.
“Not many people get the opportunity to meet one, never mind both of the most famous jockeys in recent history,” said Dora Franklin.
McCoy, who met her in his role as a William Hill ambassador replied: “Well at least you won’t have to waste any more money backing me now. It’s a shame as I’m much younger, but you look a lot better than me!”
McCoy is William Hill’s 2/1 favourite to win this year’s Sports Personality Of The Year.
Meanwhile Dora is investing her £100 each-way birthday bet from William Hill on Frankie Dettori to win on Consort in the St James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot.
