Chelsea fan goes absolutely nuts and warns King Charles while celebrating horse's huge win | The Sun
THIS huge Chelsea fan went absolutely crazy celebrating his horse's big win – and even sent a warning to King Charles.
Famed owner Clive Washbourn was all over the place after seeing Caius Chorister win £35,000 with victory in France on Sunday.
Trained by David Menuisier, the four-year-old filly was an easy four-length winner of the Group 3 having been sent off 5-1.
But it was Washbourn who stole the show with his energy-packed celebrations in the winners' enclosure.
Cameras captured him wheeling around as he could barely get his words out while being interviewed by Sky Sports Racing.
The whole thing took a bizarre turn though when he singled out King Charles in his breathless victory speech.
Barely making much sense, businessman Washbourn said: "Unbelievable weekend. We cried for England – and how we let in two goals to the Arsenal I will not know.
"But the Caius has murdered them. We love it! We love racing! Vive le Republique!"
Putting his flat cap back on and composing himself, Washbourn continued: "Absolutely fantastic. I bred this girl and her dam is still the two-mile record holder at Beverley.
"This horse next year will take all the beating in the Ascot Gold Cup.

They got right in amongst it with fans and Frankie Dettori even broke Royal protocol when planting a kiss on Camilla.
The monarchs present the Gold Cup trophy to the winner of the week's big race – and Washbourn reckons next year it will be him.
At least Charles can't say he wasn't warned!
