, ‘I love him, he’s my best friend’ – Punters in tears of happiness watching owner’s brilliant interview on live TV

PUNTERS were in tears of happiness watching a winning owner’s brilliant and emotional interview on live TV.

Georgie Davies was overcome with pride after seeing ‘best friend’ Inishbiggle win at 9-1 at Doncaster.

Punters shed their own tears of joy after watching Georgie’s absolutely brilliant interview
The owner said winning horse Inishbiggle was her best friend and that his victory meant everything to her

She landed just shy of £7,000 for victory in the 2m3½f handicap hurdle – but money looked a million miles from her mind as she celebrated with her horse.

TV racing host Luke Harvey stepped in to interview Georgie in the minutes after victory.

And his brilliant chat quickly went viral on social media, with viewers saying they shed their own tears of joy watching and listening to Georgie.

The winning owner said: “I’m quite emotional! I bought him to go pointing with and for me to ride.

“But with Covid [happening], we thought we’d try him under rules.

“He has won two races for me, which many owners don’t have in their lifetime! Biggle’s a superstar!”

Georgie thanked trainer Gary Hamner for keeping the horse at his yard and then went into more detail about her close bond with him.

She said: “I ride him every day. This is fab. I’m made up. This is just brilliant.

“I was trying not to cry [watching the race]. I can’t tell you how much this means to me.

“I work so hard to have my horse… and he’s won! I love my horse, he means everything to me.

“He’s my best friend.”

Georgie then held back tears of her own as she patted her horse, with ITV Racing star Luke saying how brilliant it was to see her passion.

Punters felt the same too, with one version of the clip quickly racking up more than 100,000 views.

One punter commented: “OK I’ve just shed a tear, but happy tears. Well done.”

‘I’m welling up just seeing Georgie’s emotions! ‘

Another said: “Best thing I’ve seen all day. Brilliant stuff. Chuffed for Georgie, well done to Georgie & Inishbiggle – heartwarming and then some.”

A fellow racing fan commented: “Absolutely love this interview, the groom and owner, the sheer amount of joy & happiness Georgie expresses, this is what its all about, these are great interviews and moments to cherish.”

One post read: “Cannot watch this twice, I just cry when I see this young lady with her #bestFriend.”

Another said: “That was absolutely lovely, well done Georgie. That interview really made my day and that’s what it’s really all about.”

A fellow fan wrote: “I’m welling up just seeing Georgie’s emotions! Great interview.”

While one punter perhaps summed it up best when they said: “In 50 years of gambling I’ve never been as happy to lose as after I saw this interview.”
