Three Units Split £1.9 Million Scoop6 Pot for £643,903.00 Dividend

Scoop6 Win January 2019 £643903 Dividend

After 9 weeks without a winner, the Scoop6 pot had built to more than £1.9 million, and it was about to be split 3 ways.

The winners kept themselves anonymous so there is nothing I can tell you about them, but the races themselves were an exciting spectacle.

There were 673,299 units in the competition at the first race, but only 14.49% of them were backing Silver Quay, the 7/1 shot who took first place, leaving 97,573 units remaining.

Agusta Gold crossed the line first in race 2, and at 10/1 the horse could hardly have been considered a favourite, which is why it wiped around 90% of the remaining units out of the bet.

The 14:10 at Navan was the next race on the card, and of the 10,555 units still in the running, over 28% of them were backing the favourite Goose Man, who went on to win the race – the only favourite of the day to win.

With 3 races down and 3 still to go, just 3,004 units remained, but Cyrname winning the 13:00 at Ascot whittled that right down to 403 – even with odds of 4/1.

It was Wakanda at 10/1 that won the 5th race of the day, but with 3 other horses more heavily backed and plenty of other units elsewhere, this meant just 52 units went through to the final race, around 13% of the remaining tickets.

The final race was the 16:15 at Haydock Park, and an unexpected winner would be very welcome news for the bettors holding the only 3 units backing it.

Of the 11 runners, only one had longer odds than the eventual winner, the fittingly named Closing Ceremony, priced at 16/1.

This split the £1,931,710 pot into 3 dividends worth £643,903 each.
