I bet no one called that one.
The unlikely entrant was snapped by the photo finish camera at Brighton races coming second in the 7.10 race , it's believed to be the first time a bird has been caught pretending to be a race horse.


Lee McKenzie, who provided notes on the race for the Racing Post, said: "Some racegoers thought the seagull should have been awarded second place.
"It flew home up the final stretch and clearly beat the next horse by a long beak.
Pity it wasn't the next race on the card (7.40), won by Byrd In Hand from Hawk Moth, with another flyer Abigails Angel third."

Obligatory ATS photo comment: That's no bird, it's far too big! And the wings are bent wrong!

That's what I thought when I saw the title. LOL Go, Seagull!

Hah. I was picturing the old Eddie Murphy skit from SNL, "I'm Carl Lewis, I beat racehorses!".

Another horse-race chuckle? "Hoof Hearted"

That's what I thought. Instead we get a really cute critter story.

It sounds like the seagull joined the horses for the final stretch of the race.
Funny. Wonder what the gull was thinking ...

That the horse race was off topic and needed to get moved to BTS.

I was there...

It happened at Los Alamitos in Cypress Ca.

I am headed there in a couple hours to watch my horse run.

I saw a seagull win by a beak in the 70's.
