Beau Mistral (5/1) set the ball rolling when landing the Download The Racing UK App Handicap at 350 and 35 minutes later Ebony Express duly obliged at 8/1.
Auto Mac (12/1) was next up in the Racing Replay, All today's Racing Sky 432 Selling Stakes and when 20/1 pick Mercer's Row landed the first division on the Two Year Old Trophy Comes Next Handicap then the Leeds-based firm were running for cover.
There was nowhere to hide though and Lees Anthem's success in the second division at 605 sparked the huge pay-out.
Sky Bet Racing PR Manager Michael Shinners said: "Sometimes you have to doff your cap to a punter. To find those five winners at Redcar was a remarkable effort and while there were plenty of heads in hands in our trading room after Lees Anthem's success, I'm sure there were wild celebrations elsewhere!"
