BBC Radio 4 always seems one of the more dignified shows on the radio, but not today when a presenter offered a slightly crude horse racing tip – by accident, it appears.
Speaking at around 6.30am, the presenter Garry Richardson gave an update on latest football scores, before letting listeners know who he backed to win races taking place at Haydock Park Racecourse today in Merseyside, and his pick wasn’t PG.
He said: “Here are the selections: we’ve picked out two for Haydock – at 20 minutes to 1 it’s number 8, Seymour Cox, and then Haydock at 1.15 it’s number 7, Ned Tanner.”
It seems that Richardson suffered from an unfortunate mix up as Racing Post lists no horses named Seymour Cox participating in races today at the competition. It does however, name the horse Seymour Sox (not Cox) who is running at 12.40.
