Jamie Osborne's internet sensation "Bad Bobby"

Jumps-jockey-turned-Thoroughbred-trainer Jamie Osborne had a more exciting morning than he planned on January 28, when his female dog took off down the gallops, chasing a line of racehorses led by Toast of New York.

Osborne then delighted the Twitter-verse with video evidence of the incident:

That video has now been viewed over 365,000 times on Twitter alone, and another version of the same video found another 200,000-plus views on At The Races Facebook page.

To stop Bobby from chasing the horses Osborne first tried a change of equipment.

That worked until it got too cold, at which point Bobby was relegated to watching the workouts of the “big rabbits” from the car.

Bobby seems to have settled into her new role as supervisor, albeit a bit reluctantly.

Of course, sometimes she'd rather just stay home where it's warm. We can't blame her for that.
