Simon Cowell heading for the races?

Racing fan Simon Cowell has splashed out on a horse

Simon Cowell has apparently splashed out on a racehorse with his pals Ant and Dec.

The TV boss and his Britain's Got Talent hosts, along with a fourth friend, spent thousands on buying a talented young filly and plan to start racing her this year, reported The Sun.

A source said the X Factor head honcho has "been into racing for years".

The insider went on: "He has always wanted to be more involved than being just a punter. The opportunity came up to buy a young horse that's destined for the track and they all jumped at the chance."

Comedy duo Ant and Dec have already owned and raced a horse so the pair are said to be guiding animal-lover Simon through his latest venture.

The group have yet to name their new steed, but friends have joked that they should give her a title reflecting their TV show, such as Britain's Trot Talent.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
