Lovely image, actually if you watch the races you will in fact see them put their foot more firmly in the stirrup than that. Usually just before they go into the stalls they will do a final adjustment including putting their feet more firmly into the irons. It isn't actually possible for them to race with their foot just barely in like that although they do walk around pre-race like that a lot.
