Irish gypsy horse race turns to chaos at police intervention

These pikeys were racing horses on the highway in Ireland. The Garda intervened and only managed to arrest one racer.
At one point head on collisions were narrowly avoided when the pikeys watching the race bunched up around one racer to protect him from the police.
The horses were called "Russian lady" and "Christies filly". I'm not sure which one is which.

Never trust a gypsy. .
