Wacky Races: The Divine Comedy sponsor horse race

The Divine Comedy have sponsored a race to take place at Brighton Race Track on the afternoon of June 30, which will be known as The Divine Comedy Handicap.

According to a spokesman for the racecourse the band had used the course the previous week to film their video for forthcoming single 'Gin Soaked Boy' and returned the favour by sponsoring a race.

"The song's bout winners and losers apparently," the spokesman told NME.
