Seagull photobombs photo finish, takes second by a beak

It would happen in Brighton, wouldn’t it.

A SEAGULL RAN ran two horses close in a British race when he flew in front of the finish line camera judging a photo-finish.

The incident happened at the English south coast venue of Brighton when the photo-finish print showed the bird swooping across Jewelled, who was declared the winner, and Sagesse in second.

“We are about a mile and a half from the sea, and there are a lot of seagulls around, but this has never happened before as far as we are aware,” racecourse spokesman George Hill told the BBC.

“The bird just happened to be in the right place at the right time.”
