In what could have been a disaster ended up being a no contest. At the start of the last race at Del Mar on Saturday the No. 6 horse, Indian Spirit became riled up in the gate and triggered it to open causing all sorts of chaos. Assistant starter Timmy Craigmyle was dragged out onto the track, but thanks to some quick reaction from the jockeys nothing bad happened.
I’ve never seen anything like this happen before and hopefully will never see it again.
