Neigh Bother As Yes Horse Wins Race

A race between Yes and No horses has resulted in a win for the pro-independence camp.

The two-horse race saw Yes We Can storm to a four-length victory over its rival Neigh Thanks at Musselburgh racecourse.

The five-year-old gelding, ridden by Scottish jockey Rachael Grant, went to the front early on and stayed out of reach of Neigh Thanks running in the Better Together silks.

History was made at the course as the race represented the first simulation of a political contest with thoroughbreds, bookmakers Ladbrokes said.

Renfrewshire trainer Jim Goldie, who supplied both horses for today's race, said: "We're absolutely delighted. There was always going to be a winner and a loser, just like Thursday, and it was a close win in the end."

The Scottish independence referendum has now become the most popular political betting event of all time, according to Ladbrokes.

A No result is the odds-on favourite at 1/4 with a victory for Yes priced at 3/1.
