You really can’t make this up.
Don’t ever bet against Donald Trump.
Racehorse Moro Flyboy looked like a guaranteed winner as he made his way down the final stretch at Lone Star Park back in June.
But then the unthinkable happened.
Moro Flyboy hit the rail just yards from the finish line and jockey Simon Camacho-Benitez was flipped off the horse and thrown off the track.
That’s when Heavenly Trump rushed by to win the race.
It was heavenly!
The Sun reported:
Camacho-Benitez bounced off the obstacle head-first and landed with a thud on the dirt as Heavenly Trump cruised past to win in the most ridiculous of circumstances.
A clip of the finish has gone viral online, as conspiracy theories about why the horse jinked surfaced…
…Moro Flyboy would have represented a decent winner for backers with an SP of 9-2
But 5-2 Heavenly Trump was the one who benefitted from the freak finish, with 8-1 Noah in second and 13-8 favourite Red Bird’s Storm in third.
This was one of a series of bizarre finishes in the world of racing over the past week.
You have got to see this!
