Punter Lands €18,000 Pay Day After Richard Kingscote Rides Haydock Four Timer

Richard Kingscote

The resumption of racing in England has seemingly gone off without a hitch, as of yet to the delight of fans and figures within the sport and after only a week there have been a fair share of events that have taken place.

One of the biggest came yesterday when Richard Kingscote landed 9,593-1 four-timer at Haydock, a track he has been winning at for a number of years now.

The first two races of the day at the Merseyside track went the way of the rider, with the first seeing him land the Novice Stakes with the Tom Dascombe trained Lauded and quickly backing that up in the next with Brad The Brief for the same handler.

Having already landed 7/2 and 3/1 SP winners Kingscote was not for stopping and he bought up the treble on the card after just four races when 40/1 shot Ishvara for trainer Robert Cowell secured the Class 4 Handicap.

He topped off the meeting in the third race from the finish with 12/1 shot Shady McCoy for Ian Williams which saw him land a superb four timer on Monday.

Kingscote, has arguably had one of the most eventful starts to the season with landing this four timer but luckily last Thursday coming away unharmed from a car crash on his way back from Newcastle Racecourse.

On his fantastic four-timer, he added: "It's been a good day! Lauded was very professional and I was really pleased with him. From what we've seen that's ran, and what he's done today, he ought to be going to Ascot.

"Brad The Brief was on and off the bridle a little bit but always felt like he'd get there. Ishvara toughed it out well and has a good attitude, while Shady McCoy was a good horse in his day and retains plenty of ability."

Punter Wins €18,000

What was a superb day for the jockey, also was a life changing day for a special punter who believed in the rider to have a good day on Monday.

The punter turned an initial €200 stake into €18,000 placing multiple bets on the jockey to land these races.

David Stevens, head of Coral PR, said: "Richard Kingscote always rides Haydock well, and that may well have prompted this punter to place the multiple bets – each-way doubles, trebles and upwards to seven-folds – on his mounts today, and after the first couple went in we began to take a much closer interest in events on Merseyside.

"When two became four winners, we weren't quite in Frankie Dettori territory, but it was nerve-racking enough for a quiet Monday afternoon, and although one of the selections was a non-runner, six winners would have landed a mighty jackpot for this Kingscote fan."
