Oh dear.

When you give your racehorse a name like Little Comte, you're begging for one of two things to happen. Either for people to constantly mispronounce your horse's name, or for people to constantly mishear it.

Comte, as we all know, is French for count. Which, co-incidentally, is roughly one letter off what we're hearing in this video.

One of the two situations is definitely happening in this short clip below, and after extensive listening we've decided that the reporter is cheekily sneaking the letter 'n' in there. Even if you disagree, there's no way you're watching this without laughing.

We hope Little Comte's feelings aren't hurt but we figure that the horse is used to it by now.
