Racing Rocked By Ringer Rumpus

An inquiry is to be launched by the Jockey Club after the discovery that unbeaten steeplechaser Get Set For Breakfast was in fact a ‘ringer’ constructed from two other champion horses.

Get Set’s rudimentary stitching came apart dramatically in a mile and a half run-out over the fences at Sandown last week.

Its detached front section eventually hauled itself across the turf and over the line, but finished in a disappointing fifth place.
