It was the first time in the 30-year history of the Gold Cup that the horse crossing the line second was declared the winner.The prestigious Sandy Lane Gold Cup ended in controversy at the Garrison Savannah yesterday after Show Me The Money was disqualified because of careless riding by Jalon Samuel.
Few would have paid attention to the horse that crossed the line second, but SUNSPORT photographer Kenmore Bynoe captured Zoom, with jockey Antonio Bishop, going past the line ahead of Bird Watch, ridden by Paul Leacock (centre), and Charge It, under Philip Makin.There was also disappointment for many television viewers who did not see the early stages of the race in real time.
