Mister Ed Fugitive Horse Busts Into Bar, Bucks Wildly As Customers Run For Safety

A runaway racehorse trained near the Chateau de Chantilly in France broke free of her handler last week and charged into a sports-betting bar about a mile away, per Reuters.

The incident, which was caught on a security camera, shows the escaped equine causing chaos as she enters the establishment and bucks from one end of the bar to the other. Patrons flee as the horse knocks over chairs.

Was going to do the 'Bartender asks, "Why the long face?" ' bit, but the writer kind of beat me to it.

I didnít twig it was a racehourse. On the stills that I saw, it looked like it might have a sidesaddle on, but a racing saddle flopping about makes a lot more sense!

Actually it was the bartender that said, "hey!"

The horse replied, "you read my mind."
