Unusual prize on offer at Woburn

An unusual prize will be on offer at next week's Victor Chandler British Masters golf at Woburn - a racehorse.

The chestnut yearling colt is the reward for an albatross two at the 514-yard final hole.

Whoever achieves the feat will be able to name the horse and will hold ownership for one year with all training fees paid. It is worth £25,000.

Colin Montgomerie, Darren Clarke, Paul Lawrie, Andrew Coltart and Lee Westwood - owner of a stud farm - are among those competing.

The colt, by Clantime out of Hell Hobson's, will be trained by Robin Bastiman at Goose Moor Farm on the outskirts of Wetherby and will run as a two-year-old on the flat next year.

"He's a nice, laid-back sort," said Bastiman. "He'll be a five to six-furlong sprinter and I hope someone wins him because they will have a lot of fun."
