An escaped horse was captured on security video waiting for the train at a railway station in Sydney, Australia, last week.

Photos show the horse walking along the railway platform amid a storm on Friday and standing patiently as a train pulled in, as if waiting to board.

Racing NSW chief steward Steve Railton told Racenet: "We've spoken to Annabel Neasham and she explained to us that on Friday evening an unknown person gained access to one of her stable blocks. Four horses were released by the individual – three registered racehorses and a stable pony.

Three of those horses remained nearby to the stable, while the horse depicted in video released on social media platforms went in a different direction, according to The Racing Post.

"Neasham and her staff caught the horse in the car park of the train station, and she's advised stewards she wasn't aware until she saw the footage that the horse had walked on to the platform."
