So often horse racing is about winning and losing. However, in reality, it isn't the only story for followers of their favourite race horse. In fact, for some fans, it is all about love and giving. Well, that is what horse trainer Ben Haslam found when opening his mail to find a letter and present to Mr Mole.
Mr Mole, a nine-year-old brown gelding, received his surprise gift of four packets of Polo mints after falling at Sedgefield.
Such is the love of Mr Mole, that his fan asked if they could have one of his shoes as a keepsake and sent five pounds to cover the cost of postage.
Here is the letter, below.
Sometimes the human spirit shines so brightly.
