Leonard Collacot was a well-known gambler who passed away on at the age of 83. His particular preference was horses. In a tribute to him five of his close family members decided to place bets on horses on the funeral day.

Believe it or not, not one but all of the five bets won! This even included an outsider with odds of 25-1 which appropriately was called Divine Rule. Leonard Collacot like many of us enjoy the fun and excitement of playing scratch cards or placing bets on horses. There is nothing like the feeling of scratching and winning instant cash prizes.

Leonard Collacot’s family winnings were modest yet with the £400 they bought champagne to toast their guardian angel that undoubtedly had a hand in the unbelievable winning streak. To add to the mystery his granddaughter Laura Collacott stated that none of the family are gamblers and the horses were chosen purely by their names alone.

Leonard Collacot was an avid gambler who made daily trips to BetFred  in the High Street despite suffering from ill health. Even when he was hospitalized he made sure to dispatch family members to bet on his behalf.

His daughter Laura stated, ‘When he died at the end of December, we felt it fitting on the day of his funeral for the cortege to proceed past BetFred, his favorite bookies. ‘Even the local vicar in his address remarked on his fondness for a bet.’
