Long Run helps bumper win on the Boxing Day Scoop6December 31st, 2012 / lee
There was a double header in the Scoop6 horse racing totepool this week, with not only the regular Saturday running, but a special bonus day held on Boxing Day as well. Boxing Day paid out a treat for a whole clutch of lucky punters in a big winning day on the Scoop6. Over 38,000 tickets started the Boxing Day Scoop 6 and that was whittled down to around 8,000 after the second race of the six, the 1:25 at Kempton won by Rajdhani Express, with the favourite not in the picture. One of the feature races of the festive period, the King George VI was won by Long Run, and his win left 644 tickets moving forward to the final race of the day, also at Kempton. Victory for Loose Chips in the 3:45 handed out a winning Scoop6 ticket to 54 lucky punters after a great day of racing. The 54 winners each collected a handsome return of £925.90. The Scoop6 Place Fund was shared between 894 correct tickets, each winning £24.70.
There was no winner of the Scoop6 win fund on Saturday, December 30th as just four tickets made it through to the sixth and final race of the day, which was the 3:25 at Doncaster. However, none of the four managed to pick out winner Renoyr from the field of eleven, had one of them had done so, then there was a big win fund of around £120k waiting. On Saturday, the second race of the Scoop6 was the 2:25 at Doncatser, and when favourite Barafundle was beaten into second by Storm Survivor, almost 52,000 tickets were knocked out of the running at that early stage. The Scoop6 Place Fund Total was shared between 4277 punters who each collected £10.70. With the Bonus Fund intact as well, there will be big roll overs for next week.
The Totepool will be operating a special Scoop6 on New Year’s Day then will resume its regularity of every Saturday, starting from January 5th.
A £2 stake is all it will take for you to have a crack at the Scoop6 big prizes. The Tote will announce the six races which make up the Scoop6 day on a Saturday and punters can use their horse racing knowledge and experience to try and pick out the six winners of each of the featured races.
