THIS is the brilliant moment a winning horse trainer absolutely flattened a pal WWE-style with his bone-crunching celebration.
Syd Hosie went crazy as his horse Rock My Way won the Grade 2 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham Trials Day last Saturday.
The 13-2 chance powered home from 5-4 fav Pembroke to win by a length-and-a-half to scoop the £28,475 prize.
It was the five-year-old gelding's first win having finished a close second to the highly promising Weveallbeencaught on his rules debut at huge odds of 66-1.
Dorset-based Hosie owns and trains the horse, who was cut to 25-1 for the Ballymore and Albert Bartlett at March's Festival.
But for all his horse's heroics, it was his celebration in the Cheltenham parade ring which caught the eye.
Spinning round and running towards renowned owner Anthony Knott, he jumped into him and body-slammed him into the turf.
Punters were absolutely loving the joyous scenes – comparing the hit to something you'd see in wrestling or rugby.
