DON’T EVEN TRY TO TELL US…there is no such thing as leprechauns.

Actually, that’s not the point of this picture. Check out the caption straight from Getty Images and we quote:
"Robert 'Chocolate' Thornton celebrates as he rides the horse Katchit (not pictured) into the winners enclosure after winning The Smurfit Kappa Champion Hurdle during the first day of the Cheltenham Festival in England on March 11, 2008.”
It’s the “(not pictured)” part that got us giggling.

Now we know folks at our Gold Cup don't always no where the horses are, but evidenlty the press over in jolly old England has a bit of trouble keeping tabs on the equines during teh Cheltham Festival which ultimatley hosts the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
