The annual office Grand National Sweepstake took place this weekend, with 12 members of staff paying £5 to enter the competition.
The rules were simple; winner takes all, with no money being paid for horses that placed. David, Terry and Julie were all early favourites, pulling out Seabass, Colbert Station and Cappa Bleu respectively – but as we know with the National, anything can happen.
It was Dan who celebrated being £60 richer after the proceedings, after his 66/1 outsider ‘Auroras Encore’ romped home surprise winner. It is fair to say Dan wished he had also backed the horse outside the sweepstake!
Dan will use the money to put towards renewing his Derby County FC Season Ticket for next year.
