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.

The Newmarket jockey who was left paralysed from the waist down following a fall has been released from hospital.

Freddy Tylicki sustained serious spinal injuries following a fall at Kempton back in October and was in intensive care until the middle of last month.

However, he has now been deemed well enough to leave hospital and continue his rehabilitation at a spinal centre in Middlesex over Christmas.

Taking to Twitter today, Tylicki said that he had been waiting for this day for a "long time".
