THE 4:30 at Argentan this afternoon descended into farce as the race was forced to be abandoned.
Things were in full swing, with riders hurtling towards the Argentan straight.
But as they did, the bewildered horses were forced to stop.
As they entered the straight, they were greeted by the starting stalls.
Staff were unable to remove the stalls from the ground after proceedings got underway.

And fans online weren't impressed.
One joked: "Lol did the French Stalls Handlers go on a quick temporary strike or something."
A second commented: "This would annoy me soooooooooooo much."

Another added: "Oh la la."
