Calder: A foul or race riding?


Obviously here,  what jockey Javier Santiago did aboard Foralltheglory through the stretch in today's eighth race is considered race riding. In fact there was not even an objection let alone inquiry posted despite the leader and ultimate winner weaving out and back in through the stretch, lugging over and forcing Cat "N Fiddle to steady and alter course to avoid running up on the leader near midstretch.  This type of riding continues to be tolerated but ultimately at what cost?
