Looks like  Jaramillo? lost the iron to me.  Does anyone really believe that a jock would fall off a horse on purpose?  Christ, there were a lot of horses behind him  and he got stepped on besides!

THE RACE WAS NOT FIXED, just a real bad break bettor!

very true, the video does NOT  lie!   How much $$$$$$ would it cost to have a jock fall off a horse on purpose with a herd of horses behind them??

He could be maimed or even killed!!!

The correct topic should have read ( Never bet on horses unless you have a clue about the sport you're talking about).

I don't know how much he was paid to deliberately fall off as he clearly did...do you know how much he would have been offered to offset the half million ticket payout? maybe 100k? perhaps you know better since you are this place's pony guy.

Why would you pay a jock 100k and NOT cash the 500k ticket?   Maybe stick with another sport?   You have no clue!

I would never bet a horse race...nobody wins except the owners, the track, and the insiders on that rare occasion...sorry buddy if you want to convince yourself otherwise...if you are a winning horse bettor, then you indeed are the chosen one...congrats.

This jockey was told to jump off the horse, if you choose to be blind, that's completely up to you.

Youre entitled to your opinion, as am i....clearly we see things differently here.
Perhaps you are too biased and personally involved with your pony betting hobbt to realize the truth behind the incident.
I wouldnt want to admit the truth either if i was a purist for a dying sport, and needed to believe everything was on the up and up.
