‘Lucky No One Got Hurt’: Fan Runs Onto Track During Race In New Zealand

A brazen fan ran onto the middle of the turf course in front of a full field of horses charging toward the finish of  a race on Wellington Cup Day at Trentham race course in New Zealand on Saturday.

Amazingly, and thanks to skillful corrective action by many of the jockeys riding the race, the man was left untouched as the horses raced past him, after which he thrust his arms into the air, apparently in celebration.

He was quickly arrested and charged with an act of endangering public safety. No indication was given what prompted the man to risk his life and those of the horses and riders in the race,

Twitter and news coverage felt little sympathy for the man. “Idiot Punter Avoids Horrific Tragedy,” one headline read.
