You can’t win them all — and sometimes there are more important things than winning. Jockey Danny Mullins demonstrated this first hand in a race this week in Ireland.
Rival jockey Jody McGarvey slipped out of his saddle on course, something which Danny was quick to see and do his best to assist with — even in the midst of an intense steeplechase race.
Danny pulled Jody, who appeared to be momentarily unconscious, back into the saddle and both were able to pull their horses up safely. What a great show of sportsmanship and luck! Props to Danny for putting the important things first — we’ll be hoping for a win for both riders in the near future.
