Mia, who turns 9 on January 17, was spotted barracking hard for her favourite horse as the entire Tindall clan enjoyed a family day out at Cheltenham Racecourse. 

“Mia was loving it!” says an onlooker. 

“Her mum might be an Olympic equestrienne but Mia has clearly inherited her great-granny, the Queen’s, enthusiasm for horse racing. She was cheering hard, waving a betting slip around in the air.”

Dressed in a cute cream coat, navy headband and matching purse, Mia was also seen reapplying her lip gloss before the big race began.

Mike, 44, who shares younger daughter Lena, 4, and son Lucas, 1, with Zara, 41, recently admitted Mia “goes absolutely mad” if she’s beaten in games and running races against her old man.

“I think it’s a balance and I’ll let Mia win occasionally,” Mike said on British show Loose Women. 

“But I make sure to beat her as well because she has to be able to take losing.”

Mia cheered until she was hoarse.

This follows after Mike Tindall talked about “getting smashed” with his wife Zara Tindall when he recently features on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. 

“First actual date, just went out for lunch locally. And ended up being quite a boozy one,” he said. 

“Then we figured out that we both quite like getting smashed. It was a good start.”
