Racing punter in record 1m win
A punter has scooped a record-breaking 1 million on a multiple racing bet.

The gambler from Manchester won a total of 1,132,657 on the final leg of the ToteScoop6 bet at Wincanton when Perouse was his sixth winner.

The unidentified punter now qualifies to play for a potential bonus of 754,452 on Saturday, which would make a combined total of 1,887,109.

A week earlier, pensioner Jack Lee missed out on a near-1m payday when one of his horses was disqualified.

Saturday's wining dividend was a Tote record and it is the first time anyone has ever won 1m at a bookmaker's shop.

It is not known at this stage if he was acting alone or with others.

Done Boookmakers said the bet was a perm costing 480, which came up with the 2 winning line.
