A Cracking Finish! Jockey Left Red-Faced After Falling Victim To Wardrobe Malfunction Mid-Race

"Tried to give my fellow jocks the bum steer."

Racegoers at Canterbury got more than they bargained for this week, with one of the jockeys accidentally flashing the crowd on his way to the finish line.

Blake Shinn was in the thick of the action on Miss Royale in the Hyland Race Colours Plate when the elastic on his pants broke, giving those on a course an up-front-and-personal view of his rear end.

His eye firmly on the post, Shinn persevered regardless but had to settle for second place at the finish line.

Luckily, the 27-year-old seemed to take the embarassing mishap in good spirits!
