Yarmouth 'wrong horse' Millie's Kiss fourth on Windsor return

Mon 7 Aug 2017

Millie's Kiss, the horse caught up in an embarrassing case of mistaken identity at Yarmouth last month, finished fourth upon her official return to action at Windsor on Monday evening.

Trainer Charlie McBride thought he had saddled 50-1 shot Mandarin Princess to win the novice auction stakes for juveniles at Yarmouth on July 27, but it was three-year-old stablemate Millie's Kiss who passed the post in first place.

The result was allowed to stand as the weigh-in signal had been announced, but the British Horseracing Authority will stage an inquiry on Thursday.

Millie's Kiss was sent off an 11-2 chance in the mile-and-a-quarter handicap at Windsor and was not beaten far by 7-2 joint-favourite Raj Balaraaj.

McBride has accepted full responsibility for the Yarmouth fiasco and is expecting to be fined by the BHA.
