THIS is the dramatic moment jockey Adam McNamara finished second despite having a dislocated shoulder.
McNamara was riding 17-2 shot Mr Coalville in the opener at Beverley on Tuesday when disaster struck in the closing stages.
Video footage appears to show the exact moment the jockey dislocates his shoulder heading up the straight.

As he looked to challenge eventual winner Uncs for the lead, McNamara was left in agony after giving Mr Coalville the whip.
He was unable to move his left arm while the bemused commentators believed he had issues with his steering.
Cameras later panned to the jockey who was being tended to by medics, clearly in pain with his arm raised.
He later took to Twitter to reassure his fans with the statement: "Shoulder is back in, we'll assess the damage and hopefully be back in the saddle soon.
"Huge thanks to the medical staff on course and all the staff @Beverley_Races.
"And thanks to Mr Coalville for looking after me, he's a smart horse."
Those viewing the race took to social media to wish McNamara a speedy return.
One wrote: "Brutal bad luck Adam! Hope you are back riding ASAP!"
Another added: "Best wishes for a speedy recovery Adam."
A third said: "Sorry to hear about your injury Adam. Fingers crossed back soon."
