The world of racing was left stunned on Saturday, when footage emerged of a track invader at Trentham racecourse in New Zealand.

Trentham staged their popular Wellington Cup day on Saturday. During one of the lesser races, fans were shocked to see a man jump over the barricades and stand right in the middle of the home straight.

Luckily, no-one was harmed during the incident, but several jockeys were forced to divert their mounts in order to avoid a collision with the spectator.

It was later reported that the intruder was arrested soon after the race, and he'll appear in court after being charged with "endangering public safety".
