A rogue seagull has claimed second place in a photo finish at Brighton racecourse.
The bird finished behind Jewelled and ahead of Sagesse. Racecourse spokesman, George Hill said, “It has never happened before to our knowledge.”
The number 3 is significant to the Earth Emperor – representing art, love and nature and the literal translation of Sagesse is ‘wisdom’. It’s a volume of French poetry by Paul Verlaine and was important in the symbolist and modernist movements.
