‘I believe I can fly’?: Demuro suspended for horseback celebration at wire
Jockey Mirco Demuro, who piloted Victoire Pisa to victory in the 2011 Dubai World Cup (UAE-I), has been suspended for two days by stewards at the Baden-Baden Racecourse as a result of a bizarre incident during a stakes race on Sunday.
Demuro won the listed Berenberg Bank Cup aboard Samba Brazil. As he neared the finish line, Demuro dropped his reins and spread his arms like a swallow as he and the horse crossed the finish line.
