Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell's horse flops
The racehorse owned by Simon Cowell and presenting duo Ant and Dec made its racing debut this week - and came last.
Simon Cowell's horse came last in its first race.
The music mogul and 'Britain's Got Talent' presenters Ant and Dec saw their filly compete for the first time on Wednesday (18.06.14) in the SIS Live Maiden Stakes in Ripon, North Yorkshire, but were left unimpressed by its performance.
Simon tweeted: ''The horse I bought with Ant and Dec 'It's a yes from me' had his first race last night. He came 5th. Out of five. Oops.(sic)''
The race was won by the favourite, Dutch Breeze.
It was previously revealed that Simon - who was rumoured to want to name his four-month-old son after himself before settling on Eric in honour of his father - wanted the horse to be his namesake until his co-owners convinced him otherwise.
Dec - whose real name is Declan Donnelly - previously said: ''We had to name it because it wasn't named for racing, so we had a chat with Simon.
''His first suggestion was, 'I think we should call him Simon'.''
They eventually settled on 'It's A Yes From Me', a reference to the judges' comments on Simon's TV talent shows
