A retired accountant has won more than £450,000 after placing a 20p racing bet.
The North Londoner, who does not want to be named, placed an accumulator bet on seven horses running at Newbury, Lingfield and Doncaster on Friday.
Ladbrokes bookmakers said it was after the horse Mcvicar beat the hot favourite in the 5:05pm at Doncaster that six of his picks had won.
He was also a winner with Dinsdale and Wishicould at Newbury, although another pick, Bendomingo, lost.
The lifelong racing fan didn't bother to check all of the results after Bendomingo lost at Newbury.
The retired accountant said he was completely speechless and the win would take a few days to sink in properly.
