I don't see it as a stiff job as much as an incompetent 7 pound bug girl who tried to rate a horse who has a history of showing speed and exiting in the stretch. So the horse goes right to the front, the jockey tries to slow him down, he resents it, then she has a tough time controlling him as they race around the turn & then in the stretch another horse comes over him as he's tiring and spooks either the horse or the rider who is afraid of hitting the rail.

Keep in mind this is a horse who hasn't been out since 6/30 and is now in the barn of a trainer who usually doesn't have them ready off layoffs. It's reasonable that this speed horse wasn't ready to run the entire distance of the race & was out there for conditioning. Trainer intent not to win, but hardly a stiff job. Now add to the fact that the horses who battled early for the lead ALL faded to the back of the pack in this race. Calling it a stiff job seems IMO to be unjustified.
