SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT

ROCKHAMPTON FRIDAY 6TH OF NOVEMBER 2020 XXXX GOLD CLASS 1 HCP

Trainer C. Russell reported that HIGHLY INFLUENTIAL would now be spelled until the warmer weather cools down as the gelding does not handle the tropical weather.

Race 1: CLERMONT RC APPRECIATION Maiden Plate 1300m

Call Me Theroux – Laid in under pressure in the straight.

Ventures Benir – Slow to begin.

Taylor stated that FIZZ will now be leaving his stable.

Lady Sheilack – Slow to begin.

A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.

Race 2: MEMBER APPRECIATION QTIS Three-Year-Old Maiden Handicap 1000m


Correct weight was delayed to allow stewards to consider two objections lodged by Trainer L Wright, trainer of EMILEE’S EMPIRE declared third by the judge, against APPARENTLY NOT ,2nd placegetter, and LEO’S DEN, placed 1st, alleging interference over the concluding stages. It was established that near the 50m LEO’S DEN commenced to shift out carrying APPARENTLY NOT out towards EMILEE’S EMPIRE and approaching the finish line shifted out abruptly causing APPARENTLY NOT to forcibly bump EMILLEE’S EMPIRE resulting in both runners becoming severely unbalanced. Stewards were of the view that APPARENTLY NOT had no bearing on the interference suffered to EMILEE’S EMPIRE and even though the interference was significant, bearing in mind the proximity to the finish and how the runners were finishing off the race, stewards were not satisfied had the interference not occurred EMILEE’S EMPIRE would have beaten APPARENTLY NOT and LEO’S DEN and as such both objections were dismissed.

Correct weight was also delayed to allow stewards to consider an objection lodged by Trainer A Coome, trainer of APPARENTLY NOT the 2nd placegetter, against LEO’S DEN placed 1st alleging interference over the concluding stages. It was established that near the 50m LEO’S DEN commenced to shift out carrying APPARENTLY NOT outwards and approaching the finish line shifted out abruptly causing APPARENTLY NOT to become severely unbalanced. Stewards were of the view that had the interference not occurred APPARENTLY NOT would have finished ahead of LEO’S DEN at the finish and therefore upheld the objection and amended the placings as follows; APPARENTLY NOT (1st), LEO’S DEN (2nd), EMILEE’S EMPIRE (3rd) and BETTER CHILL’EM (4th).


Leo's Den – Shifted out abruptly over the concluding stages despite the efforts of its rider, making heavy contact with APPARENTLY NOT who was carried out onto EMILEE’S EMPIRE. Trainer P.
