Video: Jockey completes race with pants pulled down after embarrassing wardrobe malfunction

Pep Guardiola hasn't got a patch on poor Blake Shinn.

The Australian jockey was on board Miss Royale yesterday during a meet in Canterbury, Australia, and suffered a pretty embarrassing wardrobe issue early in the race.

The elastic in his trousers snapped, and with nothing to keep them up, they quickly slid down his legs, exposing backside to the rest of the field.

While most human beings would instantly die from the sheer mortification of riding a horse in public while bare-arsed, Shinn did incredibly well to finish second, only losing by a head.

Tommy Berry, who rode the winner Defender, summed up the thoughts of the jockeys: “What a great race to win. It meant I was the only one that didn’t have to stare at Blake’s a*** the whole way up the straight.”
