A racing incident shortly after the start of the Need For Speed Princess Consolation Trot at Lord's Raceway last night, saw driver Gary Donaldson catapaulted from the sulky of Skyeski.
The race was called off, but the driverless Skyski continued galloping on the race track. The race was re-run 20 minutes later without Skyeski.
Watch the remarkable horsemanship of Richard Holland and his mount as they chase, and capture Skyeski safely, coming dangerously close to the winning post.

Happily, Skyeski was unscathed, while Gary Donaldson was lucky to suffer no more than bruising.
Next Trots at Lord's Raceway, March 29.
