WATCH: Spectator Runs Onto Leicester Racecourse And Races Alongside Horses

There's the running of the bulls. And there's 'the running of the horses in the 8:45 at Leicester'.

Yes, the Cream Gorse Handicap got an unusual competitor on Saturday evening, in the form of a white-shirted spectator who ran onto the course and started joining in with the horses.

"You can't do that," said one wise Sky Sports commentator. "You just don't expect it, do you," added another, sagely.

Race officials have since told Sky Sports that the man will, indeed, be banned for life.

And quite right too. What on earth would Alan Partridge say?
