This is the incredible moment when a horse with a bandage on its nose somehow manages to jump three fences perfectly.
Frau Georgia and jockey Tom Scudamore did a wonderful job averting disaster at a race in Worcester.
The seven-year-old mare’s nose strip came across her face during a 2m7f competition on Tuesday.
But she miraculously overcame the last three hurdles and finished second by a length of 13-2.
The Neil Mulholland-trained runner was traveling well from outside straight into the home and the line was sure to be a challenge.
But it was just as she was actually motoring that her nose bar—a piece of equipment that horses wear to help keep their heads at the right height while running—moved before her eyes.
It seemed that his field of vision was completely obscured by three jumps from the house.
Luckily he made it perfectly well over a fence before charging into the final flight.
Scudamore propelled her to jump well there and she remained with the leader in her sights before clearing the last one too easily.
In fact, it was only at the run-in where the 11-4 favorite Coral got more to win.
The story of the race, however, was essentially the remarkable jump of Frau Georgia while blindfolded.
An impressed punter wrote on social media: “Excellent than a horse and a jockey.”
Another wrote: “Amazing stuff from a horse and a jockey.”
One comment read: “Horse races are incredible!”
Racing has seen a number of impressive performances in recent weeks.
Alex Cruz told a commentator about a skill he had ‘not seen in 44 years’ with this amazing win in America.
While in Australia another rider was applauded for somehow standing upright with a superb balancing act.
