Former Waterford football manager Niall Carew lands amazing €170k gamble

Former Waterford manager and Kildare selector Niall Carew had the bookies reeling yesterday after pulling off an amazing 18,512/1 accumulator.

Boylesports were the unlucky bookies after Carew, who resigned as Waterford manager a few weeks ago, landed the massive bet with two bets using the same four selections.

His selections were Ribbons in the 3.10 Deauville at 10/1, Sabrina harty's pair of Ansgar in the 4.15 at Goodwood at 10/1 and Kalann in the 5.10 at the Curragh at 16/1 and Kerry v Mayo to finish in a draw at 8/1, totalling to odds of 18,512/1 for the accumulator alone. Kalann’s win at the Curragh saw the intuitive punter turn a €50 bet into a staggering €170,000.

Aoife Heffron, PR Executive at Boylesports, commented “We would like to offer our congratulations to the lucky customer on their fantastic €170,000 win and wish them all the best in enjoying their winnings.”

She added “Not only does the customer have their massive winnings to celebrate but they can also revel in beating Boylesports - we hold our hands firmly up in defeat.”
