A brilliant piece of sportsmanship from racing at Roscommon yesterday

Sportsmanship at its finest.

JOCKEY JODY MCGARVEY was falling off his horse Old Supporter after jumping a fence at the Roscommon Races yesterday before something fantastic happened.

Fellow jockey Danny Mullins, riding Tavern Times, saw that McGarvey was in imminent trouble and reached over to help him stay on.

Both horses would pull up before the end of the race but it is wonderful to see such sportsmanship.

It will put a smile on your face, trust us.

Both jockeys were understandably all smiles in the locker room after the race.
