Sky Sports News Amuse All With Headline About Irish Jockey

At Naas on Monday, David Fitzpatrick was responsible for what he called an 'appalling' ride.

In the 3.25, he finished eight of twelve runners aboard 'Roryslittlesister' and today ended up with a 21-day ban for "failing to take all reasonable and permissible measures to obtain his best possible placing, and banned him accordingly".


Given that horse racing is a sport rife with possible double entendre pitfalls, maybe Sky Sports should have been a little more circumspect with their headline regarding the ban - especially when you take into account the name of the horse.

Presumably David will also be sending a note of apology to Rory's sister.

Thanks to Martin Gormally for alerting us.
