A pensioner punter has won £50,000 at Betfred after backing virtual horses all named after women!

He had a 25p Lucky 15  on Jenny’s Joy, Emma Redman, Valbourne and Amys  Blonde – and they all obliged.

The father of two is a great-grandfather from South Wales, and when asked about his selection methods, there was some tedious links to thank!

He explained: “I had a sister called Valerie. I once knew a girl once called Amy very well, and my cousin was called Jenny.

“But Emma? Well, no-one in the family is called Emma, and I didn’t know anyone from my past with that name. I think I must’ve just liked the sound of it!”

The ex-docker added: “I went to the pub to celebrate, and bought a few drinks. I’m going to help my children with their mortgages now I have had the biggest win of my life. I’m sure it will soon disappear!”

Betfred boss Fred Done offered his congratulations to the lucky punter, explaining that a theme was developing on his end of the bargain too!

Done said: “It is brilliant that one of our most regular customers, who has been with us many years, has won big from such a small stake.

“Betting on virtual races is one of our fastest growing markets – and no wonder, with the increasing number of times my pockets keep being emptied.

“Women have been costing me money for years so nothing has changed there!”
