Fan-favorite Horsey McHorseface will make his highly-anticipated career debut when he heads to the starting gate at Kembla Grange in New South Wales, Australia, April 22.
The 3-year-old gelding by Nadeem is entered in the first race on the card – a five-furlong maiden contest.
Named as a nod to the British research vessel, ‘Boaty McBoatface’, Horsey McHorseface was purchased last year for $ 65,000 at a 2-year-old sale in New Zealand. The gelding has a huge international following already via Twitter after the BBC, CNN, and Sports Illustrated ran stories about his last year.
