How about we get rid of saddles as well as whips and have bareback racing - very entertaining   :lol:

Thornton defends his race tactics
NATHAN EXELBY
 
GRILLED: Boris Thornton. SM story
OPINIONS were divided after $1.40 pop Privlaka went under in the opener on the Caloundra card after failing to reel in Little Dabl Doya.
In the field of six, Privlaka settled in the back half and found himself in among horses approaching the turn.
Apprentice Boris Thornton persevered for runs inside those horses before aborting and coming to the outside just past the 300m mark.
Social media went into overdrive on the merits of the ride, but Thornton defended himself on dismounting.
“I still thought I had time to pick them up,” Thornton said.
Part-owner Chris Lord was diplomatic, saying Privlaka at his best would have reeled in the leaders and that he may have had enough this campaign, with trainer Rob Heathcote likely to order a spell.
Stewards questioned Thornton on the ride and accepted his explanation as to why he didn’t get to the outside earlier.ENDS

The not blameworthy excuse accepted by the panel ...poor decisions are held to be not culpable ...thanks to the late Tom Hughes QC who trotted this out in the Munce case years ago it's now almost "black letter law" in racing.

Giddy Up :beer:
