Horse racing fan David Crowley was left jumping for joy on March 14 after winning a bet placed on jockey Jack Kennedy during the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival.

The 17-year-old Irish jockey rode the horse <a href="https://www.rte.ie/sport/racing/2017/0314/859674-cheltenham/" target="_blank">Labaik</a> to victory, delighting Crowley, who had placed a 50-1 bet on their win.

Crowley was filmed encouraging the jockey as he watched live on his television set in Ireland.

Some eagle-eyed viewers questioned the authenticity of the video because of what appears to be a Sky play button at start of the footage. <a href="http://www.independent.ie/sport/horse-racing/cheltenham/video-it-wasnt-staged-irishmans-cheltenham-celebration-is-a-must-watch-35533326.html" target="_blank">Crowley told Independent.ie</a> that was down some childcare responsibilities that prevented him from watching it live.
