Steward Comment

Improved into the race four wide after passing the 800m. When asked to comment on the perceived improved performance of the gelding, trainer P. Nipperess stated that at its most recent start the horse was ridden off the speed and when asked to improve into the race, it had runners to its outside, which he believed the gelding may resent. Today, with a step up in distance and on a track on which the gelding has performed creditably previously, he expected a more forward showing. He added that, consistent with previous instructions to riders, the gelding does not appreciate racing inside other r

Had to be steadied away from the heels of HOOVESGOTCHA approaching the winning post on the first occasion when that runner laid in away from KIJITO. Again had to be steadied from the heels of HOOVESGOTCHA passing the 1600m and made the turn out of the home straight awkwardly. Trainer B. Currie’s stable representative reported that the colt may have got its tongue over the bit during the race.

After racing in a prominent position throughout the gelding commenced to weaken after passing the 600m and finished in a rearward position. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the horse to be suffering from cardiac arrhythmia. Connections were advised that before racing again the horse must trial satisfactorily and a veterinary clearance, including the results of an ECG, must be produced.

Blundered of its own accord and became unbalanced when racing in restricted room passing the 400m. When asked to comment on the horse’s performance, J. Lloyd said the filly travelled comfortably for the majority of the race but prior to the 400m, when MOTHER TO RACE HER improved to the outside, he asked the filly to quicken, however it failed to do so. He added that even though the filly was slightly inconvenienced rounding the home turn, he felt it did not finish the race off as expected and may have been slightly disappointing today.

Slow into stride. When questioned regarding the horse’s improved performance, trainer M. Callaghan explained that at the gelding’s previous start it was first up following an 8-week let-up and over a shorter trip, which may have been unsuitable for the gelding. He thought that a fitness edge second up today and a step up in distance to 1350m, as well as a drop back in class, could have been to the gelding’s advantage today. Mr Callaghan further advised that he had only a small wager on the gelding and was somewhat surprised by the win today.
