Cameras then captured the moment the two horses crashed through the perimeter barrier before ending up in a boundary hedge.

McGrath was shown going through the fence back-first with Sheehan following suit.

Both jockeys and the two horses were reported to be OK following the flashpoint.

But the drama in the action-packed first race did not stop there as the leader fell at the final hurdle.

Honneur D’ajonc, ridden by Chester Williams, took a tumble with the race at its mercy.

Fortunately again both the horse and jockey were OK.

Racing fans reacted with shock and disbelief at the stunning crash.

One said: "Someone's still p***ed from Christmas Day by the looks of it."

Another commented: "Unreal."

A fellow viewer posted: "2020 summed up in a horse race right there."

One comment read: "Thank God the rails just shatter now, that could've been very nasty."
