There was so much chaos right after the bell & during the very first stages of the race, all along the gate(s) that the chart caller had it as a "melee".  

The chart is a good read as it adds a little flavor to the replay.  Lots of legitimate contenders were in the mosh pit.

No way the jock had any control over TS.

None whatsoever.  Amazing he stayed on.   Ugly starts are so common, even in the every day game. The riders know that gate incidents do not lead to fines or time on the bench & on dirt, they want to get away quickly.   Lots of horses are light on gate work, too, and that's on the trainer.

Looking at this I can understand how Albarado came off at Keenland.

Like you said,amazing that Soumillon was able to regain control.Brilliant picture

If rider injuries were plotted from the points at which they were sustained, I think inside the gate would be #1.  If riders getting dropped were plotted, I think right after the start would be #1.  That's actually fortunate because the horses aren't up to speed.  I don't even like to think about those hi-speed accidents.   Such a dangerous job.
