That's the most obviously stupid display of stopping a horse I have ever seen! Given even an average ride the horse would still have won by 2l. Instead the daft girl endangered herself, her horse and the 2 next to her when she broke jaw and flew sideways. Throw the book at the eejit.

Wasn't exactly subtle was it. My first thought was that she was trying to stop because the horse had broken down or something, but obviously not the case, it seemed to be sound when it finished.

At the lower levels you would do better coming in second - your horse is always winning money, you are not running your horse hard so you can race it more, your horse isn't being forced up in class where it could loose. I know on the harness tracks in America you can make $1-2000 a week by doing this.

But the whole way round you can see she is not riding to win - I am sure she will get some days!
