Moment Australian jockey is thrown out of his racehorse – but somehow manages to cling to the saddle
How did he stay?! Incredible moment when leading Australian jockey is thrown out of his racehorse – but he somehow manages to hold onto the saddle
- Jockey Jarrod Lynch, 26, was knocked off his horse during a 3,500 meter hurdle
- He miraculously managed to cling to Euroman, while the railing displeased him
- Lynch climbed on top again and regained control, but did not complete the event
A jockey was almost thrown off his horse during a race in Adelaide on Saturday, with a blood-curdling video in which he clung desperately to the saddle.
Jarrod Lynch, 26, raced on Saturday at 1 p.m. on his horse Euroman in the Grand National Hurdle on the Morphetville racecourse.
The 62-kilogram jockey stuck for his life after his horse clicked an obstacle at the 700m point of the 3,500m race.
Lynch was battered by the running rails before retiring to the horse to regain control.
He and Euroman were unable to finish the Grand National Hurdle after the damn jump.
Many gamblers were devastated because Euroman was the favorite of $ 2.15 to win the race.
Some took Twitter to praise the jockey for his great balance and skills.
& # 39; Punters will spit, but that was an attempt by Jarrod Lynch to stay aboard Euroman! & # 39; a man said.
& # 39; Extraordinary. To think that the running rails used to be wooden, & # 39; said another.
& # 39; Incredible art of riding and thanks Christ for plastic tracks, & # 39; another agreed.

Traditional tracks were previously made of wood and aluminum has also been used in the past.
The plastic rails stopped Lynch from having a serious injury to race for another day.
Double Bluff, ridden by Shane Jackson, won the first prize of $ 33,500.
Richard Cully rode the $ 9,000 second place with Andrea Mantegna and Hero & # 39; s Honor, ridden by Mr Ronan Short, took third place and won $ 4,500.
