Queen's Hat: We pay out n all four colours
The Queen’s Hat colour caused controversy among bookmakers on Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot and one bookmaker William Hill decided to pay out on four colours after the official description was announced as pistachio, which wasn’t in the betting list.
“Her Majesty has royally stitched us up by selecting pistachio – it’s so obscure we’re going to have to pay out on four colours!” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
“After a stewards’ enquiry we’ve decided to pay out on white, blue, green and turquoise,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
It was the third day in a row that the bookmakers lost on The Queen’s Hat colour.
