Race 1: KENNARDS HIRE QTIS 3YO MAIDEN PLATE – 870M
CROSBY ROAD – After being advised by trainer S. Dwyer that the gelding had some swelling on its off side rump, it underwent a pre-race veterinary examination and was cleared to start. After racing in a forward position, CROSBY ROAD failed to respond when asked for an effort passing the 400m, and proved disappointing over the concluding stages. A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding revealed no apparent abnormalities other than that the horse was exhibiting a poor post-race recovery.
PERSIAN KING – Raced 3 wide with cover throughout.

SERRATALLI – Failed to muster speed in the early stages. Held up for clear running rounding the home turn. Secured a run to the inside of GHABBIE passing the 150m. When questioned by Stewards regarding the performance, jockey M. Cahill advised that after SERRATALLI was unable to muster early speed, he had some difficulty securing clear running rounding the home turn and in the early stages of the home straight, however once the filly was afforded clear running, it ran on well. He added that, in his opinion, the filly would improve with the experience, and would be better suited over further distances than that of today’s race.
SHE’S WHITTIE – Began awkwardly and shifted in.
URALBA – Raced greenly in the home straight.
Race 2: TAB QTIS 2YO MAIDEN H’CAP – 1000M

After travelling well for the majority, the gelding commenced to weaken when placed under pressure near the 400m and finished a distant last. Jockey N. Tomizawa reported that the gelding was making an abnormal respiratory noise on pulling up. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no apparent abnormalities. Trainer D. Groves advised that in light of the performance today it is now his intention for the gelding to be retired.

Thompson advised that, in his opinion, the gelding may have resented the tongue tie. Apprentice A.

He added that he was surprised by the speed shown in the early stages, and was also slightly surprised by the gelding’s performance today. Stewards noted Mr. Groves’ comments, however they reminded him of his obligation to advise Stewards should it be his intention for the horse to be ridden in a manner which is different to its previous starts.
