The runaway horse
A runaway horse amazed and shocked locals and shoppers in Newmarket as it charged through the streets on the main shopping strip.
The police were called at 11.20am as the horse galloped down the road before being caught outside Innocence nightclub.
A police spokesperson told Horse & Hound, “We were told there was a loose horse running up the High Street towards the Cambridge end with a jockey in pursuit. We didn’t have much involvement though as it was handled quickly by stablelads.”
It was reported that the horse in question is in training with Sir Michael Stoute but a spokesperson declined.
An onlooker Nicola Rayner told the local press: “ It was going like a bat out of hell straight down the High street. It was lucky it didn’t hit anyone or injure itself, it’s not something that you see every day.”
