Standing starts

In my opinion, ridiculous. The common sense thing is to surely ask the jockeys to go back and come in again?!

Watching 24 jockeys yesterday, trying to get their horses (some of them pretty buzzy), to stand still a few feet in front of the tape was laughable.

It might work in small field races but some of those horses had no room to turn to face the tape in the first place, let alone get them to stand stock still once they had.

Nuts if you ask me.
