Carew beats Boylesports

The story last weekend of former Waterford football manager Niall Carew will be giving many punters going into Boylesports shops over the weekend hope that they too can win big.

Carew, who was a selector with Kildare under new Armagh boss Kieran McGeeney, pocketed €170,322 from doing a €3 Lucky 15 and a €5 accumulator on four selections last Sunday.

The Kildare native plunged his faith into three horses that he had often backed in the past, Ribbons who was a 10/1 winner of a Group One race in Deauville and the Sabrina Harty pair of Kalann who won on the flat at the Curragh and Ansgar who was successful in Group Three Supreme Stakes at Goodwood.

Kalann was 16/1 and Ansgar was also a 10/1 shot. In addition to the three winning horses, Carew also included a draw in the Kerry and Mayo All-Ireland Semi-Final at Croke Park which was priced up at 8/1.

The bet itself was 18,512/1 as Carew gave plenty of hope to those doing accumulator and multiple bets up and down the country every week.
