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.
