All five horses fell at the water jump, reports George Girth, who was riding one of them. In any event, all the jockeys fell off and then, confused by the mud, all got back on to the wrong horse.
On they galloped. Bert Bridle was third past the post, riding the horse belonging to the jockey then riding Frank Fetlock’s horse. Bert’s own horse was being ridden by the jockey who had started on the horse now being ridden by Sam Stirrup. Sam’s own horse (the one he had started on) was beaten home by the horse which Frank Fetlock finished on. Willie Withers and exactly two of the others came in ahead of the horses they had started on.
Can you list the jockeys (capital letters) and their final mounts (small letters naming the original jockey; e.g. Bg would mean B finished on G’s horse) in finishing order?
