Bookie operators feel relieved after a large bet came up short at the Tramore racecourse in Waterford. It was a dramatic ending as four horses went from long outsiders to favorites. Thus, bookmakers were at risk of paying out large amounts of money.
According to a bookie pay per head blog, two of the four horses won. Also, the other two horses had photo-finishes and ended in second place. Lastly, one finished third in another race.
Bookmakers Paddy Power and Ladbrokes stated they had taken various large wagers on Friday morning on four horses. Additionally, the horses were either prepared or set to be ridden by an individual from the Mullins family. That made the odds shorten. For example, one horse went from 100/1 to 4/6.
