Irish jockey Richard Hughes won seven of the eight races at Windsor Racecourse on Monday, a feat that totaled combined odds of 10,168-1.

Bookmaker Paddy Power says Hughes cost it about $1.2 million, with one person winning $136,400.

Hughes won the first race at the English racetrack on board 13-8 joint-favorite Pivotal Movement and the second with 5-2 favorite East Texas Red.

Further victories came on Embankment (7-1), Magic Street (4-1 favorite) and Links Drive Lady (5-2 favorite).

After finishing third on Ever Fortune, Hughes was back to winning half an hour later on Duke Of Clarence (7-4 favorite) before rounding off an unforgettable day on Mama Quilla (15-8).

Jockey Frankie Dettori won seven races in a day at Ascot in 1996.
