A racehorse named after world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury helped a lucky Sky Bet punter in the UK win a staggering £28,988.89 on Sunday afternoon.
Robert from Bristol placed a £3.13 each-way treble (total stake of £6.26) on Tyson Fury (20-1), Mankayan (15-2) and My Dandy Doc (50-1).
Astonishingly all three of them prevailed to leave him counting his considering winnings and celebrating a very special Sunday. Even more amazingly all three victories came after each other in the final three races of Sunday’s meeting at Doncaster.

Sky Bet spokesman Michael Shinners said: “To pick the last three winners at any meeting is a good effort, but with those prices it’s a phenomenal effort. It’s a great result for such a small outlay and I hope our customer enjoys their winnings.”
The equine Tyson Fury – a son of Ifraaj and Za Za Zoom, was held up near the back of the 14-runner field by jockey Megan Nicholls in the early stages before quickening nicely to outpoint Postileo by one-and-a-half lengths.
The three-year-old was making his racecourse debut in the Follow At The Races On Twitter Novice Stakes.
