The horse was grazing on the backstretch of Canada's Fort Erie Race Track when the ground opened up after a water main break created a sinkhole, according to Horse Racing Nation.

Thanks to the combined efforts of Fort Erie staff members and the local fire department, the horse was successful dug out with a backhoe and given medical attention.

The photos of the incident are simply unreal.

Clearly, the horse made a full recovery, because he was doing this on Tuesday during the undercard for the Prince of Wales Stakes, part of the Canadian horse racing Triple Crown.
