WATCH: Dog joins horses in Cheltenham race


One unexpected entrant in the 15:40 at Cheltenham on Friday didn't have dog's chance of winning.

With the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained Arthur's Gift on his way to victory in the Citipost Handicap Hurdle, the field was joined by a small black dog.

The pooch valiantly kept pace with backmarker Champers on Ice for a brief period, but its short legs and apparent nervousness around horses ultimately counted against it.
