#Punters around the world would have been scratching their heads if they had placed money on #Oski at the #Taunton #Race after the horse went ‘walkabouts’ only moments from winning the race.

The well backed horse, at 9-2 odds, was racing away with just the finish line in front of him at the #Somerset countryside racecourse in the UK.

The commentator was stunned at the finish: “Oski thinks he‘s done enough as he gets to the front… he’s eyeing his rival, not concentrating!

“Veering out to the left! #Oski‘s all over the shop! #He’s thrown it away!”

“Oski went walkabout on his run in.”
