A horse trainer in the UK has a new secret weapon – singing Opera.

Heather Main, 49, of Oxfordshire, England, said her key to training a winning racehorse is to sing opera songs to them.

Main, who originally trained to be an opera singer, said the tactic helps relax the horses as well as keep them entertained.

So far, she said Mozart seems to be the music the horses respond best to.

The results have been outstanding. Four horses she trained using her singing tactic won first place within a month. A fifth horse, Childesplay, took home second place.

During her training to be an opera singer, she often daydreamed about racing horses and eventually gave up singing professionally to become a jockey.
