The Biggest Horse Racing Accumulator Wins of All Time

With a little expertise and a smidgen of luck, it is possible to win pretty big on your horse racing accumulator.

Sometimes, with a little expertise and a lot of luck, it’s possible to win ‘very’ big. Here are some of the biggest horse racing accumulator wins ever:

£1.45m

Heating engineer Steve Whiteley became an ex-heating engineer when he picked six winners with a £2 stake during the Tote Jackpot – the biggest in the competition’s history.

The sixth horse that came in was Lupita, a 12-1 shot ridden by a novice that hadn’t won in 26 races. It’s fair to say that the stars aligned for Mr Whitely that day.

£1m

With an accumulator that featured the horses Isn’t That Lucky and A Dream Come True, in 2008 a 60-year old small-time gambler became the world’s first ‘betting shop millionaire’. What’s more, the lucky punter didn’t realise he’d won until he visited the shop to place more bets a few days later.

The fortuitous man bet at odds of nearly 2.8 million, but because the bookie William Hill has a maximum horse racing payout, he had to forgo £400k settle for a round 1 million. We doubt he was too heartbroken.

£550,000

There weren’t many people happier than Frankie Dettori when he famously won all seven races at Ascot in 1996.

However one punter was even chirpier than Frankie: Darren Yeats from Morecambe bet £59 on the unlikely occurrence to take home a very cool £550,000.

£353k

Showing that seven really is a lucky number, back in May 2011 one unnamed online punter bet 50p at frankly ridiculous odds of 706,128 to 1.

£111,294

With just a 2p stake, an anonymous father of two landed a huge accumulator to bring home winnings of more than £111,000.

This mega-odds win came during a good day for the unnamed luckster. In total, he put on a series of 1p bets on 11 different selections that totalled £15.84. In total, he won £209,731.59. Nice.
