Harry Potter villain Tom Felton couldn't believe his luck when he visited a racetrack after the Mexico City premiere of The Deathly Hallows last week (ends19Nov10) - because there was a horse running with the name of his character's chief foe.
Felton admits he handed over all the cash he had on him to back Harry Potter - but the horse was far from magic.
He explains, "I backed it big time... 1,000 pesos. It felt like a lot of money at the time.
"Needless to say Harry Potter the horse sucked, man. He came in last place."
