Spanish term or phrase: largador de caballos
This is a literary text about horse races in Argentina:

Si la humanidad entera fuese, por su fortuna, aficionada de las carreras, cesaría de inmediato las luchas de clases, de razas y de partidos... Que nos den un programa con numerosas inscripciones, un dia de sol, un buen largador y un juez de raya que no haga macanas, y con eso y un poco de suerte, el mundo es una papa.

It seems to be the one who starts the race....Is there a term for that?

Thanks

Explanation:
I've removed "de caballos" from the question, because the "largador" starts the races, not the horses (they have jockeys and starting gates to do that).
