Shock in the horse racing community when Jockey Christophe Soumillon caused an uproar after he was seen pushing rival Rossa Ryan off a horse during a race.

The Belgium rider, who recently won the Coral-Eclipse, was caught seemingly elbowing Ryan and forcing him to lose balance and fall off his galloping horse head first, leaving viewers outraged, because the move could have had fatal repercussions, luckily no one dies, except maybe the guy who bet the house on Rossa Ryan.

The move has resulted in a two-month ban for Soumillon!
