We were pretty pissed about the Magic Millions and how the stewards basically gave that jockey a slap on the wrist for knocking more than half the field down.
I thought the penalty handed out was solely inadequate.
In Harness Racing, the horse would have been disqualified and I reckon that was justifiable for what was the second worst hatchet job I've seen done.
Hypothesize for a moment if Ef Troop would have won the race. How would that have looked with him knocking out one of his chief opponents?
It means next year jockeys will think there are small penalties for creaming your opponents and it is worth their while to ride dangerously.
A very poor look for what has become one of Australia's major race days
(I backed Ef Troop at $11 a few weeks back so not talking through my kick).
