Watch racegoers show off hilarious chicken dance moves as horses thunder past, leaving punters in stitches

THESE three racegoers had punters in stitches – after pulling off some hilarious dance moves in the middle of a race.

The three pranksters were caught on camera bopping around like chickens.


Horses and jockeys were thundering down behind them to the finish post at Echuca racecourse in Victoria.

But perhaps the three dancers had already bagged some winners earlier in the day because all they cared about was dancing.

To the commentator's credit, he managed to stay focused and call the action on the track.

But everyone else was interested in what was happening off it.

Punters couldn't stop laughing – and at least it was something to smile at in light of the number of idiotic racetrack invaders in recent months.

One who saw the clip commented: "Great to see, hope they had a great day."

Another posted: "Very funny stuff."

While one wrote: "Love it! At least they're not running across the track."

That was in reference to a terrifying incident just last week when one 'imbecile' darted in front of horses mid-race.

Fortunately for all involved he got out the way before the horses thundered past.

Earlier this year another racetrack invader ran directly into the middle of a track as horses bolted past him.

Justin Bergman pleaded guilty to creating a criminal nuisance by unreasonably disrupting a public meeting.

Footage showed jockeys forced into last-second changes just to avoid clattering into Bergman as he stood motionless in the middle of the track.

He was sentenced to a year's supervision, 100 hours of community service and fined £4500.

Miraculously, no one was hurt in the incident, which came after Bergman – who admitted drinking on the day – tried to spook horses by screaming at them beforehand.
