Niall Horan of One Direction and golf management fame's down at Royal Ascot today and we have a couple of questions about it. Those questions?
1. How are we supposed to fully function and actually get things done when he looks like this in a suit?
2. WAIT WHAT DOES HE OWN A HORSE?
So yeah, basically Nialler's been spotted at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire watching the horse racing; and we couldn't help but notice he's wearing a fancy 'Owner/Trainer' badge on that oh-so-dapper suit jacket of his. So what does this all *mean*? Does Niall now own an actual horse? Has he been training a horse? Is he hung li--
Okay enough, Sugarscape. Jesus.
As y'all can see above, Niall's been parading about looking what can only be described as fifty shades of bae with this badge claiming he's a horse owner and/or trainer. Obviously the internet's already noticed this, with fans taking to Twitter to ask stuff like this:
So what's the situation, then? Well we've only gone and put on our INVESTIGATIVE JOURNLISM HEADS (read: have a look through the Royal Ascot Owner & Trainer PDF thing) to find out why he was allocated such a badge.
According to the document, 'An owner, joint owner, registered partnership or syndicate with a runner will
be entitled to a total of six complimentary Owner/Trainer badges. A form of
identification will be required for collection. These named badges are nontransferable
and valid only for the day on which the horse is declared to run.
Owners, joint owners, partnerships and syndicates with a runner will be
entitled to purchase an additional four badges. "
Basically yeah, he could own a horse but chances are he KNOWS someone who owns a horse and gave him one of their four additional badges. Cool.
