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.

It may take longer than you expect to reach your goal, but don't let that deter you. The best things in life involve an element of sacrifice. A reference from a powerful friend will help you get into an exclusive group or prestigious society. Your new friends and contacts might eventually be able to give you a helping hand professionally, but that's all in times to come.More
