'Unprecedented' situation as wrong horse wins race

Charlie McBride Mix-up at Yarmouth

But the level of public disclosure and explanation as to what actually happened has been lacking, with Joe Public expected to swallow brief press releases and carry on investing hard earned rands in the game.

However, in something of a farcical series of events at Yarmouth racecourse yesterday, the complete outsider of the 13:40 race managed to get up and win that race, only for it to be discovered to be the stable mate of that horse!

"The scan identified the horse to be Millie's Kiss, the trainer's other runner in race four".

"It's an honest error and no-one stood to gain anything by it", said McBride.

Trainer Charlie McBride says he was "stressed and rushing" after being delayed collecting the saddle, but how easy was it to make that mistake? I think they've got 14 days to lodge an appeal to the victor. "As he was in a rush, he put the saddle on, the horse ran and won".

"Since we introduced the microchipping identification system an incident such as this is, as far as we are aware, unprecedented".

Despite the case of mistaken identity, the result will stand, with some bookmakers even paying out on the second-placed runner as well as "Mandarin Princess".

"Having heard their evidence they referred the matter to our head office and ordered Millie's Kiss to be withdrawn from race four".

David was in rare form, shooting back at numerous questions asked of him with his typical brand of humor. I think I'm able to recognize that".

Correct weight was announced and bets paid after two-year-old Mandarin Princess narrowly beat the $1.67 favourite Fyre Cay, only for officials to later find that the victor was not Mandarin Princess but indeed Millie's Kiss, her older stablemate.

"The responsibility lies with the trainer to present and run the correct horse in the race".

Stipendiary steward Tony McGlone said: 'The stable girl had taken the horse out of the stables and put it in the saddling boxes.

As is standard practice though all winning horses at United Kingdom racecourses are dope tested after they have won a race, much more so when a horse with odds of 50 to 1 win a race they shouldn't technically have won based on their current form.

"This looks very bad for British racing". It's one race, one horse, one day.

John Egan, who rode the "winner", said he was surprised the horse was not disqualified or the race declared void.

The mistake was only realized after the race and long after most bookmakers had already paid out the winning bets.
