Riderless Horse Finishes Ahead Of Pack In Race At Belmont Park – VIDEO
This is video of a horse named “Downtown Hottie” finishing in first place, despite not having a rider throughout the entire sixth race, on Wednesday at Belmont Park.
Downtown Hottie stumbled at the start, and dumped her rider, Luis Saez, but still finished ahead of the field at the finish.
Notice, I didn’t say she won the race, because officially, she didn’t. A horse has to have a rider to win.
Granted, Downtown Hottie was running with approximately 115 less pounds than the other horse, but this is still impressive.
And no, this is not the first time this has happened in horse racing, but it never really gets old either.
