Newmarket trainer Charlie McBride has been fined by the British Horseracing Authority for entering the wrong horse in a race at Great Yarmouth.

McBride, who's based at Exeter House Stables, said it was a genuine mistake when three-year-old filly 'Millie's Kiss' was installed for the race for two-year-olds last month and won at odds at 50-1.

The horse was supposed to be stablemate Mandarin Princess, but the mix-up was only discovered after Millie's Kiss was scanned.

McBride was fined £1,500 and the horse was disqualified.
