Very sad - harrd to tell but i wonder if jockey and horse separated before the line in which case not even placed?
Report breadnbutter February 4, 2024 4:43 PM GMT
Let's hope it's just a fall, horse has a strange action on front right, looks like front left went.
Report BoosterRooster February 4, 2024 4:44 PM GMT
That was absolutely awful, horrible to see.

But what happens for betting purposes? Hard to tell where the jockey comes off, if it's before or after line. Don't really fancy watching it back too many more times either.

Wicked Thoughts crossed the line in front whatever the decision. Jockey of Getagin didn't appear to touch the ground until after the winning line.

Was going easy, jock stole a wee glance, ground is generally quite good on that rail but there has been a few oddish falls at mussel this year in the home straight.
Report BoosterRooster February 4, 2024 4:48 PM GMT
Yeah you're right, just paused it on sky plus. Jockey on ground before winning line and other horse in front on line.

Says last traded price was 100 on the winner.

Getagin posted second. I guess because the jock didn't touch the ground until after the line? Not sure of the rules there.
Report BoosterRooster February 4, 2024 4:59 PM GMT
Given it as 2nd on sporting life.

Jockey must have still been in contact then when the horse crossed the line.
Report BoosterRooster February 4, 2024 5:03 PM GMT
Its a horrible thing to do, but if you pause it on the sky plus, the jockey is clearly separated from the horse before the line, and the horse falling catapults him over it.

Maybe he still has hold of the reins or something? Im not sure of the exact rules either.

Cobden (and PN) looked distraught. Unbelievable after what happened yesterday to get a race in that fashion the next day.
Report Poppydog. February 4, 2024 5:12 PM GMT
Don't know the rules, but the jockey and horse have definitely parted company 2yds before the line.

What is spooky is that the whole scenario played out exactly like Getagin's first win over the exact same course and distance.
Him leading on the rails in a gutsy finish, with two fancied horses going flat out, to go past him on the outside, less than a length behind.

An enquiry was held to consider the placings in this race when GETAGIN (IRE) fell approaching the line. Having viewed the recordings; the official photo and interviewed the Judge and Ryan Mania, the Stewards were satisfied that the rider of GETAGIN (IRE) had not made contact with the ground until after the line and therefore were satisfied that GETAGIN (IRE) should be placed second.

I was at Musselburgh today and the sad, sombre feeling after this incident will live long in the memory for the wrong reasons.

The OP should be absolutely ashamed of themselves for the tone of that heading I had a random stranger standing crying next to me after what happened and the horses groom walking off the course with a bridle in his hand getting words of support from racegoers.

Anything for a cheap laugh on here I suppose.

I'll let you try and justify your workings but it only backs up what I had originally thought. Clearly this isn't really the sport or the forum for you if thats your attitude.

I think it should be ok to discuss this now.

How does an horse with no jockey on its back carry the correct weight throughout the race?
Yes, the jockey had not hit the ground, but he was not connected to the horse at the finish line and was in mid air.
