No Reins, No Problem

Kudos to jockey Jockey Marcos Meneses for guiding his mount, Chia Ghost, to victory despite the fact that both reins broke during the race. It’s hard to imagine recovering quite so well from an equipment failure like that — and it also speaks to the fact that the horse was very competitive and knew his job. It was the horse’s second straight victory.

  1. I agree! That jockey really kept his cool. And that horse really wanted to run. It reminded me of the steeplechase horses that keep jumping the fences after they’ve lost their riders.
