Watch: Kangaroo joins horse race and has no problem keeping up with the field

Punters didn't see this one coming.

A Kangaroo joined the action in the final race at Cessnock in Australia, skipping alongside the field for a few metres before bouncing across towards the other side of the track.

The roo showed a serious turn of pace to keep up with the field on the inside rail before deciding on a different route.

The jockeys must be commended for maintaining their professionalism as they finished out the race despite the intrusion. 

@wpasterfield @DufficyRon your not implying there's ever be a kangaroo court in racing Tommy ?!
