William Hill refund all ante-post bets on Danedream
Following the news that broke yesterday that Danedream has been ruled out of Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, William Hill have decided to refund all ante-post bets on the 2011 winner.
The outbreak of EIA in Cologne means that Danedream will be unable to leave the area due to the quarantine lockdown order, therefore missing the Arc, the Breeders' Cup and the Japan Cup.
William Hill spokesman, Richard Thomas, said, "The situation regarding Danedream came from out of the blue, and as a gesture of goodwill, we have decided to refund all ante-post bets on the defending Arc champion. Having won the 2011 Arc is spectacular fashion, and gone on to land the King George this summer, Danedream had been one of the best backed horses in the Arc market."
William Hill betting on the Arc: 3-1 Orfevre, 4-1 Camelot, Nathaniel, 8-1 Sanois*, Shareta, 10-1 St Nicholas Abbey, 12-1 Masterstroke, 14-1 Meandre, Sea Moon, Imperial Monarch, 20-1 Yellow And Green, 25-1 Reliable Man, 33-1 Solemia, 50-1 Kesampour, Mikhael Glinka, 66-1 Haya Landa, Ernest Hemingway, 200-1 Robin Hood, Aventino (e/w 1/5 1,2,3) *needs to be supplemented
