The Happy Mondays star has launched a charity racing club but Mystic Moonshadow’s debut at Redcar did not go to plan
The Monday shops opened and brought some relief to lockdown Britain was far from a happy one for the Happy Mondays star Bez, whose venture into horse racing got off to the worst possible start when Mystic Moonshadow, the horse bought to earn money for a charity, refused to race at Redcar.
Bez, real name Mark Berry, dancer and maracas-shaker for the Happy Mondays, launched his racing club last month with the aim of raising money for Manchester-based homeless charity Coffee 4 Craig but their flagship filly let them down on her very first trip to the races.
