So, you got the local media acting like they are dismayed by the shocking behavior while opportunistically showing the shocking footage repeatedly; standard procedure. Then, you got the “Minister of Racing” who is deeply concerned with the P.R. ramifications; that’s pretty sick but, typical.
But nobody…NOBODY…even mentions…the moron-nitwit-knucklehead-yob that dives for the ribbon throwing his little person-jockey in to a big assed face plant!!!
