Video: Aussie jockey suffers serious wardrobe malfunction during race
An Aussie jockey has shown true dedication by riding his horse to the finish, despite the elastic in his trousers giving up the ghost.
Riding a horse called Miss Royale in the first race at Canterbury racecourse Blake Shinn was well placed to try and nab the win.
But then the elastic in his trousers gave way, revealing his backside to the world.
But dedicated to the last, Shinn kept riding to the line in the hope of getting the victory.
Shinn ended up taking second place and some global noteriety to boot.
Afterwards the jockey joked on Twitter
Now I know how Jen Hawkins feels. Tried to give my fellow jocks a bum steer but unfortunately backfired. Should of had my @BondsAus on. 🌕😳🙈— Blake Shinn (@blake_shinn) April 23, 2015
