Princess took a sharp left toward the infield, losing her jockey again(!) and then jumped the rail.

But that wasn’t the end of it. As the horses headed into the far turn, Tiz a Princess jumped the rail again into the path of the oncoming runners.

The rest of the field slowed up as well.

Maybe Tiz a Princess should consider a career change. Steeplechasing might be a good choice.
