Pretty sure that if we only had a national racing commissioner they would opt for the European style and get those assistant guys out of the gate completely, problem solved going forward.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

One of the most extraordinary wins you will ever see on a racetrack. Jockey @AaronKuru comes off his horse, Des De Jeu, at the first jump only to remount and go and win!

For those stunned by that Aaron Kuru “Houdini” on his way to winning the steeplechase at Awapuni today here are some more angles including an amazing head-on. Remarkable stuff

Near the end of this brief Paulick article about the starter beating the horse at Delaware is a statement from the owner of Accolade....a VERY unhappy owner. :shock:

And rightfully livid. I'd feel the same way if it had been one of my horses. No excuse for Delaware Park officials not to reach out to the owner to apologize for the mistreatment of their horse by their employee and maybe offer some recompense, even if only a free food voucher. You'd never know this business depends on having lots of owners.

This is bad business on the part of Delaware Park all the way around. Can't understand how you expect to calm a horse down by repeatedly bashing him in the head. If I had placed a wager on that horse, and then watched him being cold cocked in the gate by some idiot I'd be mighty upset. But that is secondary, as the blatant abuse of the animal is what is infuriating. Owner sounds like a decent guy, and I'm glad that he spoke up. DP needs to make an example of this asst. starter and fire him, and Mr. Fagan may wish to take his horse home...

Curious......do assistant gate starters have union representation?

I'm glad he got suspended but yikes @ Delaware not reaching out. But it is good to see owners advocating for the well-being of their horses.
