Thoroughbred Modern Society won admiration – and double-takes – as he was given the green light to join the racing circuit.
The two-year-old is a skewbald, meaning his body is spattered with patches of white and another non-black colour.
Trainer Andrew Reid describes his charge as unique and hopes the horse can begin racing in the coming weeks, after passing the stalls test at Kempton Park, Middlesex, earlier this week.
Mr Reid, who has trained 200 winners, added: ‘He got quite a reaction at Kempton and we’re sure he’ll catch even more attention when he begins racing.
‘He’s almost a freak of nature – thoroughbreds don’t usually come in that colour, let alone go racing. He’s running exceptionally well and we can’t wait to get him started.’
Modern Society is being trained at Mr Reid’s Mill Hill stables in North London.
