A reveller ran up and threw himself over a fence at Sandown race course.

Jon Goodchild and a group of mates had been to the Surrey race track on April 26, when he had a bright idea.

With the track empty, the 40-year-old sprints as fast he can towards it, getting noticeably smaller compared to the jump.

Reaching the rushes, Jon throws himself over the fence before disappearing over the other side.

Jon said: “Alcohol gave me the idea to do this.

“I seemed to shrink as I got closer but knowing there was an audience I couldn’t back out.

“I suffered several scratches but one of the stewards congratulated me, so it was worth it.”
