I totally disagree on DQ'ing the winner.
Gentildonna came out, but the rider of Orfevre had him come in, trying to close to hole, right at the point of attack.
I don't believe the bump had any affect on the eventual outcome.
Their point was that Gentildonna came out way harder than Orfevre came in. And considering that she had another way around him, and the JRA is more strict than they are in America. I think he closed the hole enough as well that it was his spot.
