Stewards accepted the reasons tendered for the late declarations of riders for OSSENHAGEN and IT’S WANTED.

Race 3: Dooleys Tavern and Motel QTIS Maiden Plate (3YO & Up) 1100m
Correct weight was delayed as Jockey N Seymour, rider of second placegetter LA JULIETTE, upon pulling up dismounted and was experiencing severe cramping. As he was attended to by ambulance personnel and unable to weigh in, stewards acting under the provisions of AR142  were satisfied that LA JULIETTE had carried its allotted weight and subsequently declared correct weight. Jockey N Seymour was subsequently stood down from his remaining engagements by ambulance personnel and was therefore advised that he is required to provide a medical clearance prior to race riding again.
