Not so Happy Hammer!

Sakho and agent Mark McKay

Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction!

A non-runner in the 7f handicap horse race 3.20pm at Chelmsford yesterday was called The Happy Hammer!

The race was eventually won by Sakho’s agent horse who was called ‘Siege of Boston’ at 9/2.

Agent Mark McKay explained to At the Races TV that he arrived 10 minutes before the race from a flight from France with his client Sakho and he would leave 5 minutes after the race.

McKay told the Racing Post “It’s good to come here, pop in and watch the horse run.” McKay’s phone remained silent during the race, and he added: “Now it’s time to get back to work. There are things to be sorted out so it’s back to the football now. I hope all the West Ham fans backed the horse.”

Sakho stayed in the race course car park on the phone to Club Secretary Andrew Pincher trying to arrange a meeting with the owners.  McKay and Sakho eventually turned up late in the evening at the London Stadium only to be told what they were told on the phone, namely that no directors were available and the board were united in their resolve not to sell him.

According to Sky Sakho landed a touch during the visit to Chelmsford races today. They say he put £100 on his agent’s horse Siege of Boston and won £550.

  1. You forgot to add that Sakho bet on McKay’s horse and won £550 according to Sky.

  2. Poor old Happy Hammer! Probably a hamstring. Looks just a minor injury…

  3. They should have stuck Sakho in the stalls with The Happy Hammer and let it give him a kick up the arris lol

  4. On the plus side, Premier League is now full of ****ed off(and confused) footballers who haven’t got the move they were expecting/demanding, which might even make it more interesting to watch

  5. Yeah so Van Dijk gives the ball away to Sakho five yards out, He refuses to shoot at goal & Van Dijk won’t clear it. Should be more entertaining than what we have seen so far this season.

  6. What a horribly traumatic day for the poor mite😆 We should all welcome him back on a week on Monday with a chorus of cum by yah and a candlelight vigil outside the ribman’s stall after the devastating experience he suffered 😆😆

  7. I particularly enjoyed the irony of this deadline day. There we were laughing that we would re-sign Carlton Cole only to re-sign a player who hadn’t left. You’ve got to hand it to West Ham, we are the masters of black comedy.

  8. My one shock from the transfer deadline day was that Chelsea paid £35m for Drinkwater when Noble i am often told is far superior to Drinkwater.Is Noble worth more than £35m??

  9. why are the club even considering offering this **** a new deal? the only possible reason must be to keep his value up. I have never heard of a player taking himself off to another club & having a medical without the knowledge of his current club, not turning up for training the next day & then yesterdays f**k up. amazing, you couldn’t make it up

  10. The club is in turmoil . No amount of comments will change the fact we are phucked .
    If the David’s plan is to sweep the floor before selling up ,,, then ffs get on with it .
