Stumbles & Recoveries at the Sligo Races
One horse had a bad stumble in the third race at the Sligo Races on 15 July 2012 and another horse fell in the fourth race. Both accidents happened the third time the horses came around the one-mile track and at the same hurdle. In the third race, the jockey did a magnificent ride and the horse found her footing. In the fourth race, there was nothing the jockey could do to help the horse. Both horse and rider tumbled down the track and both got to their feet. The horse cantered to finish the race, while the jockey took a few minutes to get his wind back. These were good outcomes for both accidents.
