Winner then shouted more racial abuse but was stopped in the car park and held until police arrived.
She told officers that she had drunk four cans of lager that day but she could remember her exchanges with the security guard. She was then charged.
Winner said: "At that particular time I wanted to help my niece. She was screaming and crying.
"My initial reaction was to go over to the security guard and tell him to let her go. I'm sorry for my actions."
Michael Meades, chairman of the Bench, asked: "Would you like to say anything about the racial abuse?"
She replied: "I have been drinking that day. I realise I did wrong."
Mr Meades described the case as a very serious matter and added: "We are looking at an unpaid work requirement at a medium level."
Winner admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour which was racially aggravated, and assault by beating.
Mr Meades asked for a probation report to be compiled. He deferred sentencing until May 20.
Winner was released on unconditional bail.
