Just so you know, I was duly paid my winnings at Betfair, having backed at odds of 17 to the tune of £2.50 last night. Of course Kettering nearly pulled it off.
There was one some time ago( cant recall exact details) where a lucky lady bet I think £50 in running on a horse as it approached the last well clear hoping to nick a fiver.The horse clattered the fence as she submitted her bet and was matched at 1000. Horse recovered and she won £47k.
I like these stories, make for interesting reading.
That MSE thread was an eye opener with absolutely disgusting posts being put towards the new poster from the experienced MSE possee.
I might take a quick scan over at SBR for some bad luck/good luck stories.
Are there any on here?
