Steward Comment

Held up rounding the home turn. When questioned by Stewards regarding the seemingly improved performance, Trainer M. Currie advised that he remained at a loss to explain the mare’s poor performance at its last start, as its form prior to that event had been quite good. Mr. Currie added that the mare continued to work well following its last start and, from the good barrier today, he had again expected the mare to run well.

Tightened for room at the start. Apprentice N.

A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding revealed it to be exhibiting a poor post-race recovery, and that it had lost the off hind plate.

After being caught wide in the early stages, Apprentice Z. White permitted her mount to stride forward to obtain the leading position passing the 1000m. Apprentice Z. White could offer no explanation for the seemingly disappointing performance other than that the gelding had been inclined to overrace which may have been detrimental to its finishing sprint. A post-race veterinary examination of the gelding revealed no apparent abnormalities.

Overraced in the early and middle stages. Following the poor performance, the stable representative for Mr. M. Hemmings was advised that a warning will be placed on the gelding. The stable representative was further advised that should the horse perform in a similar manner in the future, consideration will be given to preventing it from racing at TAB venues until such time as its form improves.
