THOUSANDS of people turned out for one of Hampshire’s most popular races.

The 19th annual Totton and Eling Donkey Derby welcomed around 4,000 visitors as children competed in several events throughout the day.

And just like on their racehorse relatives, some of the donkeys lost their jockeys but the falls were a lot more humorous than hurtful with brothers and sisters snapping photos of their siblings' embarrassing moments.
