Australian jockey Blake Shinn rode Miss Royale in the first race at Canterbury today. Miss Royale finished second. Shinn’s pants fell down and he finished with his butt waving in the wind, pointed straight at every other horse and jockey in the race. From the Sydney Morning Herald:
"“I was more worried about winning the race. They [the pants] went just after the start and there was nothing I could do,” Shinn said. “I think a lot of people are going to have a bit of fun with this, but they can’t say I wasn’t focused and went to the line.”"
This is just an amazing video. I have no idea how to finish this post.
I’m reminded of the wise words of a 90’s bumper sticker – “If you’re not the lead dog, the view never changes.”
If I told you the horse that finished right behind Shinn was “Modesty,” would you believe me? Becuase I did not make that up.
If you think about it, Assy McGee is about the right size to be a jockey.
Horses don’t usually come with rear view.
This race was won and lost in the backstretch.
This jockey is a real horse’s ass.
Fitting this happened Down Under?
If you bet this horse Win, Place, Show, did you get paid once for Place and twice for Show?
Oh, I know how to finish this post – The End.
