Referendum race hosted at Musselburgh with Carol Bartley representing the NOs
A 5 furlong two horse race sponsored by Ladbrokes carried out a gallop poll to mirror the Scottish Referendum today at Musselburgh racecourse. With amateur Carol Bartley riding NEIGH THANKS (Midnight Dynamo) in the Better Together silks and Rachael Grant riding YES WE CAN (Black Douglas), both horses were supplied by Renfrewshire trainer Jim Goldie.
Yes We Can stormed to victory in style and it remains to be seen if events on Thursday will mirror the result. History was made at the course as the race represented the first ever simulation of a political contest.
