A horse ran into a bar and no, it's not the beginning of a joke. A young racehorse in France managed to escape her handler last month and go on a little joy ride to a nearby watering hole.
The filly's trainer Jean-Marie Beguignem told newspaper Ouest-France that he lost control of the animal as he led her from a stable to a racecourse in Chantilly, France, about 30 miles north of Paris.
Beguignem said the young horse has a fondness for running off.
Instead of choosing an open field, the horse headed into the nearest sports betting bar and terrified all of the patrons inside it.
