Stroller's fourth race
The horse was very late to the barriers due to saddle problems. He didn't parade and the other horses were at the barrier as he was still getting his saddle adjusted. Jockey said that he didn't want to use him up too early but going around the turn he got pushed wide by another horse (Man of Stealth I think). Jockey said the horse doesn't jump well, we corrected him on that, and then he said that he doesn't get into stride quick enough. Jockey said that just after the start it felt like the horse was running down hill. We think the horse didn't like the type of saddle used by the jockey which requires a very tight girth as it has no breast collar. This restricted the horse and was uncomfortable which is why he felt like he was running down hill. For some reason the jockey seems to punch the horse on the rump whilst in the barriers (at 38 seconds) Maybe the horse was leaning?
