THEY say records are meant to be broken.
But more than ten years on, no one has got close to the most incredible punt in the history of British racing.
It came on a quiet Tuesday at Exeter, when a heating engineer who went to the racecourse by bus on his day off won £1.4million from just £2.
A little context.
Think of big punters winning big and you might think of 'baby-faced assassin' Patrick Veitch.
He rinsed the bookies for £10million and flew to racecourses in a helicopter.
Or there is 'The Joker' – a secretive punter named Zeljko Ranogajec who drives a Lamborghini and is said to be worth £333m.
You might also remember Darren Yates, a punter who stuck his last £62 on Frankie Dettori to win seven races… and is now a multi-millionaire.
