Horse called Sumomomomomomomomo debuts in Japan and has fans going crazy over her name

A horse called Sumomomomomomomomo made its debut in Japan – and fans went crazy at its name.

The two-year-old filly was running at the Ohi Racecourse in Tokyo on Christmas Day.

But despite the interest in her name, she didn't have a great first run out – finishing in last place.

But the race announcer did well just to get the full name out.

One fan had warned: "And Merry Christmas to the race caller that needs to call this on debut at Ooi Friday, race 4. Odds on it only being called once?"

And others reacted to seeing its name on the race list.

One said: "Funniest name ever in horse racing
Sumomomomomomomomo (スモモモモモモモモ) makes her debut next at TCK."
