Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A LUCKY punter who scraped to­gether the loose change in his pocket to put on a £2 bet scooped £40,000 af­ter all six of his horses romped home.

Con­rad Woodgate, 24, from Hawkhurst, Kent, pock­eted the cash af­ter lay­ing the bet on six horses at cour­ses across the UK.

The tree-cut­ter said he cob­bled to­gether the mod­est stake from the pen­nies in his pocket and picked the six nags at ran­dom for a Tote Scoop 6 bet with book­ies Co­ral.

He added: “I was at home watch­ing the races on TV with some mates.

“I just laughed when my first two horses came in first, but then it started get­ting se­ri­ous with five win­ners. By then my heart was pound­ing re­ally fast.

“When it got to six I was shak­ing. None of us could be­lieve it.”

Con­rad’s win­ners were: High­land Col­ori (3/1) at New­mar­ket, Desert Law (11/2) at As­cot, Vik­ing Storm (5/1) at As­cot, Mince (6/1) at As­cot, Gospel Choir (5/2) at Hay­dock and Sun Cen­tral (2/1) at As­cot.
