PAUSE FOR THOUGHT
IN YESTERDAY'S RACING POST THERE WAS AN INTERESTING FOCUS
"LLEWELLYN: UNSEATING RISE DUE TO NEW RIDING STYLES"
PAUL EACOTT REPORTS
“TWICE Grand National winning jockey CARL LLEWELLYN believes that a change in riding styles could be responsible for the dramatic increase in the number of jockey’s being unseated in the Grand National.
“Llewellyn was speaking in the light of research carried out by the Racing Post’s James Pyman that showed that while the percentage of fallers in the race dropped from 48 per cent in the 1980’s to 46 per cent in the 2000s, the number of unseated riders had increased from seven per cent in the 1980’s to 18 per cent two decades later.
“Llewellyn, who won the race on PARTY POLITICS in 1992 and EARTH SUMMIT six years later, said: ‘Generally, people are riding a lot shorter than they used to. If you look back at the videos of just 10 years ago, they were riding considerably longer.
“The style back then was to have your foot in the iron, but it has moved towards having your toe in the iron, so obviously it can come out easier if your heel is not down.
“Eight- times champion jockey Peter Scudamore said he was fascinated by Pyman’s findings and agreed that both a change riding styles combined with riders approaching the fences quicker since modifications were made could be responsible for the unseating increase.
“As a professional, sometimes I don’t like journalists coming up with statistics about something they don’t know about, but I thought it was a very good article and I learned something from it, Scudamore said
“While, I don’t think the number of unseated riders is totally due to riding shorter, I definitely agree that it is down to the speed of the race now.
“But sometimes it doesn’t matter what speed you are riding at or how long you are riding (leathers) - if your horse drops its back legs you are gone.”
Balance, it is all to do with balance. There are all sorts of things that may happen during a race, especially a race such as the Grand National that may throw the horse, or the rider or both off balance.
Have you heard the story of Charlie Day, who died disputing his right of way ... He was right quite right as he rode along but he is just as dead as if he had been dead wrong ....
The law of averages show that a rider has a better chance of staying with his horse throughout a race such as the Grand National if he rides with his leathers a few holes longer. Then if he hits the snags he is more likely to be able to stay with his horse.
