LEGAL PROCEDURE When question regarding the performance, Jockey J Stanley stated that the horse may have come to the end of its preparation. Given that it was back to 1400 metres today and the quick pace of the race it was placed at the rear of the field and from the 200 metres had felt the weight impost. He added that the horse now may be sent for a spell.
Race 6: Ray White Rockhampton City Class 3 Plate- 1300 metres  
Prior to the declaration of correct weight, trainer Jamie McConachy, and jockey J. Stanley, , Lost Classic, which had dead heated for first at this time,, viewed the patrol film with regard to the use of the whip by apprenticee D. Graham and the photo finish image for dead heat. After doing so, both were satisfied as to those grounds.
Trainer R. Vale and jockey A. Butler, INDELO (initially placed 3rd), viewed the patrol film of an incident near the 900m and lodged an objection against DAKOTA ROCKS, one of the dead-heat runners placed 1st. After taking evidence from all relevant parties, Stewards established in this incident that Apprentice Graham, rider of DAKOTA ROCKS, had dictated THE CATHOLIC GIRL (W. DDAvila) in onto INDELO, which suffered interference and had to be checked, and in doing so had lost in excess of the length and a quarter margin at the finish. Accordingly the protest was upheld, with the new placings to be: LOST CLASSIC (J. Stanley)
1st>    INDELO (A. Butler) 2nd>   and DAKOTA ROCKS (D. Graham) 3rd..  In this situation, DAKOTA ROCKS is relegated to the placing behind INDELO.
At a subsequent inquiry, apprentice D. Graham, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding. Stewards considered this a mid range careless riding offence and took into account this was her first suspension for a careless riding matter. Her licence to ride in races was suspended from Sunday, 1 October, and up to and including 11 October, a period of 10 days.
MAJOR SCOOP - Began awkwardly. A post race veterinary examination of the horse revealed respiratory sounds in the right lung, with possible inflammation or infection. Trainer A. Hayward will be advised that a veterinary certificate will be required prior to his next restart.

SOUTHERN ALBAROSS - Had difficulty obtaining clear running until near the 300m.. Apprentice L. Dodds was reprimanded for use of his whip more than five occasions prior to the 100 metres.
Race 7: Rejuvenate Wellness Centre Class 2 Handicap- 1100 metress 
MISS HOFFA Stewards were advised that Jockey M. Hellyer was permitted to relinquish his ride on the horse by the trainer. Subsequently the horse was declared a late scratching at 8.17 am. Stewards will seek further information in regard to this matter.
PRINCESS RHYTHM Underwent a veterinary inspection after having more than 12 months off from racing and was subsequently cleared to start. Raced wide with cover.
