Freddy's twin failures!

Warne Trumps England's Flintoff Again -- at the Races

Dec. 5 (Bloomberg) --

Shane Warne's mastery over Andrew Flintoff may extend beyond the cricket field.

Four hours after Warne's leg-spin bowling inspired Australia to an unexpected victory over Flintoff's England in the second Ashes Test, a racehorse called Warne's Way romped home in the 12:40 at Fontwell. It was a 9-2 chance.

In the 1:40 race at the same southern England track, Flintoff, a horse part-owned by the England captain, could only manage second place. The 9-4 shot was beaten by a distance, a horseracing term that means more than 30 lengths.
