Found June 27, 2013 on The Other Paper:
A determined mare bucked her jockey at the starting gate Wednesday and still managed to win the race without the burden of the tiny man and his forceful hand on her back. Six-year-old Downtown Hottie broke free of her whip-holding rider during the sixth race at Belmont Park and the liberated lady still managed to gallop to victory. The racetrack's "official results," listed her as having not finished the race and a filly named "Wholelottashakin" won with a final time of 1:35 but we all know who the real winner in this video is.
