Female streaker steals the show at famous horse sales

A female streaker has put on a hilarious display in the parade ring at the Karaka Yearling Sale in New Zealand.

The unusual scenes brought a momentary halt to New Zealand’s premier thoroughbred sale on Wednesday.

When the Book 1 session had wrapped up, the woman jumped into the parade ring, stripped off and ran amok, even busting out a brilliant cartwheel.

Unfortunately she didn't attract any bids, despite a rather well-written description from renowned trainer Rob Waterhouse, who posted the viral footage online.

“An unusual and appealing lot going through the Karaka sale ring in NZ: an athletic, precocious type, good stride — plenty of bounce, if a shade frisky.

"My grandmother might dismiss as “lacking breeding” and, no doubt, might be expensive to keep in work," Waterhouse, grandson of Gai Waterhouse, wrote.

The woman is the second streaker to grab headlines this week, with a fleet-footed gentleman drawing a huge cheer on Sunday during the fifth ODI between Australia and England.

A sellout crowd at the first official sporting event at Perth's new $1.5 billion Optus Stadium went ballistic in the 17th over of Australia's innings when a streaker ran onto the ground.

The man jogged around and soaked up the atmosphere before being tackled by a security guard.

But he managed to wiggle out of the tackle and evade two others before continuing his moment in the afternoon sun.

Eventually, he had enough, and walked towards security guards with his hands together in a hand-cuff position.

Despite his surrender, he was floored by a security guard before being escorted away to a big ovation.
