The running of this race was delayed when REMEMBER MARY dislodged its rider, M. Potgieter, soon after leaving the saddling enclosure, resulting in rider M. Potgieter requiring medical attention. After cantering a short distance, the mare was caught and returned to the saddling enclosure. Due to no ambulance being available at the time, all runners were returned to the saddling enclosure and underwent a veterinary examination prior to the race and were cleared to start at the revised time of 12:43pm. Due to technical issues with the TAB, all remaining races were put back one race with the last race scheduled to commence at 5:18pm.
