Glorious Goodwood: Lucky Lady Wins £246, 238.73 As Darkroom Angel Saves Bookies Million Pound Payout

A single mum in her 30’s, who lives in Cheshire is planning to buy a house with £246,238 winnings, after landing one of the best bets of the millennium. Her bet had a total stake of £4.52 and after correctly predicting 12/1, 50/1, 100/1 and 16/1 winners she has won almost a quarter of a million pounds. Her final horse, Darkroom Angel, sadly failed to win but if it had she would have been Cheshire’s latest Millionaire.

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