Horse Loses Jockey At Starting Gate, Wins Race By Itself

This is a video from the Tokay Stakes 2023 in Nagoya, Japan of Number 5 horse Vanyar losing its jockey right at the starting gate, running the whole race by itself, and winning. Unfortunately for Vanyar, horses that finish jockeyless are disqualified, so 2nd place (normally the first loser) took home the blue ribbon instead. That’s a shame. “Stupid humans, who needs them or their rules,” I imagine Vanyar thinking to himself before peeing like six gallons.
