Belgians can pull a good beer (and horse)

by David on January 29, 2013

‘Integrity issues’ have been all over the Australian racing news in recent times but we’ve got nothing on Belgium.

You’ve got to watch this video and just focus on the horse in red and white silks sitting outside the leader.

Its just that the ground was inferior 3 horses out and the trainer and owners told the jockey he better stay close to the rails. I think they told him not to take up the running as well. Ridden perfectly to instructions.

the hoop looked like he was trying to step off, perhaps his hair was flying in his face?

I’ve been told she has already had her licence revoked pending the full inquiry.

Cant see anything wrong here.

Nice to hear from a registered steward

The horse didn’t feel right in it’s action.


David January 31, 2013 at 8:52 pm

Love it Matt

You’d never see that in Australia. Our jocks are much more adept at disguising their tactics!


Lex February 6, 2013 at 3:48 pm

And they get away with it Shane.

Shane, you put it perfectly. The Jockey’s here just make sure they never put the horse in any position where it is a chance of winning. The stewards in Australia would have pulled out same lame excuse. In Australia the horse would have totally got the blame.
