    Wow, it didn't seem like it even phased them one bit! I guess they are used to getting water squirted on them most everyday.


    Unrelated, kinda, but one of the suggested links on that video was to this race in Macau, where horse falls and jock comes off.. RIGHT BEFORE THE WIRE!

    (Btw, warning video is a bit graphic)

    Apparently the stewards ruled that the horse was the winner of the race as the jock still had the reins in his hand when the horses head (sliding on the ground) crossed the line. The slow motion is wild.
    Even wilder is that one of the comments on the youtube page is from one of the Stewards.

    That poor horse shattered his leg in the race. You can see when he gets up, it's hanging.

    I'm impressed that not a single horse so much as spooked or even shook their head! Yet the stereotype is "crazy thoroughbreds"!
