The male punter, who like Sky Bet is based in Leeds, landed four winners on day two of the Dante meeting, having backed them in a £10 Lucky 15 bet.

A Lucky 15 is made up of four singles, six doubles, four trebles and a four-fold accumulator.

His four winners on the card were Ambivalent, Navajo Chief, Bossy Guest and Villa Royale.

Sky Bet's Michael Shinners said: "It's a fantastic effort for staking a total of £150.

"To find one winner on today's York card was tough, to get all four is tremendous.

"It's a fantastic amount of money. I'm sure the winner will be thinking of booking a holiday, maybe a trip to Australia!"

The battered bookie will attempt to win some of the cash back on Friday when the final day of the York meeting features the Sky Bet-sponsored Yorkshire Cup.
