Fred Craggs, of Thirsk, North Yorks, entered betting folklore after a staggering accumulator in 2008. The punter placed a mere 50p on eight separate races split between Dubai, Sandown and Wolverhampton. Some of the nags involved were called Isn't That Lucky, Racing Forever and A Dream Come True. He banked £1 million on what was his 60th birthday weekend. Quite a present.
