From SCTC 1.6.19 – Race 7: Trainer A. Williamson reported following the event that RED BALTER had pulled up sore over the chest. Mr Williamson was advised that the gelding will require a veterinary clearance prior to racing again.
Race 1: MITAVITE THE PHOENIX – 1630M
CREATOR – Raced three wide without cover throughout. Laid inwards over the final 100m and in so doing brushed FASANO over the concluding stages.
SOUTHERN SWING – Jumped awkwardly and lost ground. Raced three wide in the early stages before being ridden forward to the lead near the 900m.
AUTOCRATIC – Overraced in the early and middle stages. Held up in the early part of the straight. When questioned regarding his riding over the concluding stages, jockey J. McDonald stated that he was concerned with the gelding as it had made an abnormal respiratory noise, however he felt he had ridden his mount out to the end of the race. Jockey McDonald was reminded of his obligations to ensure he rides his mounts out to the end of the race. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no significant findings.
ACCESSORY – Slow to begin and as a result settled at the rear of the field which is in contrast to its usual racing pattern.
BROCKY – Had to be eased near the 1300m when tightened for room between FASANO, which shifted in, and AUTOCRATIC, which shifted out slightly when overracing.
FASANO – Overraced in the middle stages. Bumped on a number of occasions over the concluding stages when CREATOR shifted in under pressure.
WISHFILLY – Overraced in the early stages.

Race 2: AUTHENTIC SECURITY OXLADE STAKES – 1200M

OF THE DAY – Jumped awkwardly and lost ground. Held up in the early part of the home straight.
GAULOIS – Held up in the home straight until after passing the 200m when it altered course to the outside of TRAUMATISED in order to improve. Stewards sought an explanation from rider T. Clark regarding the tactics he adopted approaching and rounding the home turn and whether he had the opportunity to shift to the outside of DEFENCE MISSILE instead of improving towards the inside and ultimately being held up for clear running. Jockey Clark explained that had he improved to the outside of DEFENCE MISSILE rounding the home turn he was of the view that he would have had to cover additional ground which would not have been in the best interests of the horse. He further stated that when PAPER TRADE shifted out upon straightening he was able to improve to the inside of that runner and soon afterwards bumped with OF THE DAY on a couple of occasions before being held up and getting clear from the 250m. Stewards noted his explanation.
TRAUMATISED – Bumped at the start. Overraced in the early stages and approaching the 800m improved up on to the heels of PAPER TRADE and shifted out four wide around DEFENCE MISSILE and for the remainder of the event raced three wide without cover.

Race 4: SKY RACING MORETON CUP – 1200M

Apprentice M. Murphy also pleaded guilty to a further charge under AR228(b) in that after being stood down and replaced on ECHO EFFECT he misconducted himself in the vicinity of the scales area and the jockeys’ room and was fined the sum of $1000.
