Yarmouth 'wrong horse' disqualified & trainer fined

Runners in a horse race

The ‘wrong horse’ who won a race at Yarmouth at odds of 50-1 has been disqualified by the British Horseracing Authority and her trainer fined £1,500.

Two-year-old Mandarin Princess, trained by Charlie McBride, was declared the winner on 27 July after beating Fyre Cay.

But a scan afterwards identified the horse as three-year-old stablemate Millie’s Kiss, who had been due to run in a later race at the same course.
