WINNING almost three quarters of a million pounds on a horse race might be deemed by some as a life changing experience.

But for Agnes Haddock, who earlier this year found herself £688,620 richer after laying a £2 bet on the Scoop6, life is continuing as normal.

Agnes, formerly of Danefields, made national headlines and a place in the history books in January when she secured £410,332 from Betfred - the biggest betting shop win by a female punter.

Just one week later, the 50-year-old hauled another £278,288 landing the Scoop6 Bonus Fund.

Yet for Agnes, who runs The Ironing Board in Castle, it's been business as usual since the money made its way to her bank account.

"Everything is just the same as it was," she told the Guardian on Friday.

"I've still got the business and I've no plans to sell up."

She has attended a few race meets at Sandown and Kempton and will be heading down to Sandown at the end of the month for the Betfred Gold Cup, but the only thing that has really changed is her address.

When Agnes first won the money she said she and her husband Colin would probably buy a new house and enjoy a break away.

"We've bought another house in Lostock Green but we've not been on holiday yet," she said."

And it seems her lucky streak is continuing.

"I won another £204 the other week. I still like to have my little flutter on a Saturday."
