The race horse Show Me Show Me became a showoff Wednesday when he broke out of his stall at the Royal Ascot in England.

The 2-year-old colt escaped before the race at the Windsor Castle Stakes and successfully avoided capture, even after running into a gate.

He continued to race alone around as the crowd was reportedly told to stay quiet as to not spook the horse further. Show Me Show Me was pulled from the race by organizers after his solo gallop. The horse, trained by Richard Fahey, was a 50-to-1 longshot.
