Royal Baby makes guest appearance in racing results from Ballinrobe

This was one hell of a coincidence.

MINUTES AFTER BUCKINGHAM Palace announced the arrival of the Royal Family’s newest member last night, patrons at Ballinrobe were focused on the final race of the day.

Do you think they could escape Royal Baby Mania? Absolutely not.

Check out the result of the 8.40pm race, won by the appropriately named King William with Hospital in second place.

Unfortunately we can’t stretch the timely coincidence to include Amhran Ellen in third place, unless Wills and Kate have a really liberal outlook on appropriate boys names.
