IT'S easy to get caught up in the emotion of racing.
When a jockey gets stuck on the fence on an odds-on pop you've just backed for a heap, only for it to get out at the last moment and get beaten a lip, it can be bloody frustrating.
Likewise if you've had a lash at some trotter in the third race at Ballarat after a boozy Saturday afternoon and you see it break stride at the start and end up 80 metres behind the field as they bunch up around the back straight.
So I can understand why a lot of people got emotional when Luke Nolen stopped riding out Black Caviar at Royal Ascot.
In hindsight, knowing that she tore muscles in the race, perhaps Nolen could now be hailed a genius. He did, after all, give her the softest trip possible.
But if you think Nolen's ride was unforgivable (probably only the idiots who backed Black Caviar to win by a decent margin) then have a look at some of the following videos.
We take a look at some of the worst jockey performances available on YouTube, as well as a bit of comedy from racecallers.
