Jockey Jokes About Riding Horse That Shares Name With Famous Porn Star At Cheltenham Next Month

A race horse has gone viral for a rather unexpected reason... because it shares its name with a famous porn star.

Brandy Love is a six-year-old bay mare who happens to be name-buddies with a certain 48-year-old adult actress - Brandi Love.

The hopeful horse has seen a welcome response from punters who have tipped her as their favourite, which would bag another Cheltenham win for Irish trainer Willie Mullins. 

However, fans are not the only ones enjoying the hilarious comparison, as Paul Townend, top jockey for Mullins, made obvious in a recent interview.

Former Premier League striker Kevin Doyle was having a chat with Townend when the conversation veered towards Brandy Love. 

Doyle, who started breeding horses after retiring from football, asked Townend about some of his rides at the upcoming Cheltenham Festival. 

He said: “Do you have any outsiders or one that's not as well known that you're looking forward to riding?”

Before bursting out laughing, Townend managed to reply: “Brandy Love is one that I look forward to, uh...” 

Brandy Love’s prospects are looking bright, as the horse is among the favourites to win two races at Cheltenham, set to take place in March. 

She is currently is currently in with an 8/1 shot for the Mares' Novice Hurdle and 14/1 for the Mares' Hurdle at the Festival. 

Things are looking great considering the six-year-old recorded two wins out of three races, including a most-recent ten-length route on 16 December last year.

Clearly everyone is in on the joke, as the Racing Post said she is one to 'get a little excited about' after her 2m win under Townend.

Brandy Love is owned by lucky man Mike Grech, a businessman from Salford who bought his promising young lady for around £200,000. 

Just last month, horse racing lovers were left gob-smacked after witnessing eight horses cross the finish line at almost exactly the same time.

The unusual event occurred during a race on Boxing Day at the Betway Insider Handicap at Wolverhampton, showcasing one of the closest finishes of all time with the eight horses all pretty much neck to neck as they headed over the line.  

The win was given to Diamond Jill, as the photo finish just about proved, but sports fans were left reeling by how close the result was. 

Horse racing commentator Mike Cattermole said on Sky Sports: "I don't think I've ever seen a tighter finish."
