Punters in stitches at horse name that commentator did everything to try not to say – as he came in as 100/1 winner

PUNTERS were beside themselves as a horse with a rude name rode in with a stunning 100/1 victory.

Sh**a Bed stunned the field in Tokyo – and made things difficult for the commentary team.

The Hiromichi Iida trained thoroughbred came in for a shock win in Ohi, Tokyo.

And it left those watching in stitches.

One tweet read: "Mercedes couldn't say the name on @tabcomau radio before the race. Asked listeners to look for themselves. Then it won so she had to. Gold."

While others made fun of the name, saying: "Surely some backed it for sh**s n giggles."

Another wrote: "Id Sh**a bed too if I backed it and had that price."

And another said: "My selection went down the toilet Thinking faceFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy."

Sh**a Bed's previous results showed little in terms of form for this race – and that showed at his 100/1 price.

He finished seventh and fourth back in December but turned the heat up this morning to come in first place.

And racing fans are now looking forward to another runner for tomorrow – with a horse called Pupa set to ride.
