Coral Racing Super Series gives punter bonus retirement present

Three winners took home more than £8,000 each

Coral’s Racing Super Series gave one Coral customer a bonus retirement present on the first day of York’s Ebor meeting this week.

There were three winners of the competition on Wednesday, each sharing £8,333.33, with recently retired Alan Goddard from Hinckley in Leicestershire one of the lucky trio.

Alan, 57, is a big horse racing fan who has been entering the game since it launched back in July but said he never expected to win.

“I’ve been playing the game ever since it began but I really never ever did expect to win. My wife and I were watching the races on TV as we both love our horse racing and even as the first couple placed I still never thought about the chances of winning,” he said.

“I’m a regular racegoer and have missed being able to go to the races over the last few months, particularly Ascot coming up in September which I had tickets for, but I’ve really enjoying following all the action on TV whilst it’s behind closed doors.”

The winnings will go towards helping Alan enjoy his retirement, whilst he also said he’d treat his two daughters and his grandchildren.

“It was absolutely amazing to win,” he added.

“I’ll give some of the winnings to my two daughters and grandchildren and then put the rest away to help me enjoy my retirement over the next few years, which will hopefully include watching plenty of racing.”
