DQ in the Iselin, bad call?   General Discussions

The Australians definitely trashed our stewards in this article:

Between that and Maximum Security in the Derby, that's a close one for "worst call".

I do find it interesting the Aussie writer is applauding Canada for possibly switching to their rules.  That I agree with;  Woodbine stewards often seem too "letter of the law" when it comes to taking horses down for even the slightest infractions, rather than deciding "the best horse won, let the result stand".

Looks to me the jockey stopped riding..costing his horse.

No better judge of riding than the maestro.

Ramon Dominguez should know...I'm with what he says.

In just the 5 seconds...the heads on shot appears as if the rail horse has his head ducking out towards the outside runner and the jockey pulling his head back to gain control.

This is a bad beat.

Looks like the jock knew he was beat and resorted to hoping to win via DQ.  
 

I’m still not over the Maximum Security debacle.
