THIS is the incredible moment EIGHT horses crossed the finish line at almost the same time in one of the tightest finishes of all time.

The Betway Insider Handicap at Wolverhampton on Boxing Day was awarded to Diamond Jill but the commentator could not believe what he was seeing.

The commentator described it as one of the tightest finishes ever

Martin Harris was on commentary duty and somehow correctly called Diamond Jill had edged it.

The 4-1 shot was neck and neck with seven other horses just yards from the finish line.

Its jockey had a pink and purple jersey on and was just one in from the rail.

With a furlong to go, the horses were spread across the track – a nightmare for the race caller.

But he managed to spot the winner despite the chaotic finish.

Harris said: “It’s wide open.

“Diamond Jill is bursting through on the inside, it’s going to be a six or seven way photo.

“Diamond Jill might have snatched it.

“Very tight indeed.”

The photo finish confirmed Diamond Jill had nicked it from 13-2 shot Rania with Al Gaiya determined to have finish third – somehow!

Broken Rifle came seventh despite finishing mere milliseconds behind the winner.

Sky Sports racing commentator Mike Cattermole said: “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a tighter finish.”

And ITV Racing’s Oli Bell tweeted: “How’s this for a finish!!?”
