Gazzman – Hampered on jumping away. Raced wide throughout the event. Rider reported that his mount raced greenly and made the home turn awkwardly. He added that his breastplate broke during the event.

Oconee (NZ) – Stewards accepted the reasons for the late arrival of OCONEE (NZ) on course. Slow to begin. Momentarily inconvenienced passing the 800m after becoming awkwardly placed on the heels of the weakening SPOOKE.

Infinite Joy – Jumped away awkwardly and was slow to begin.

Blazing Fairy – Slow to begin.

Force Me (NZ) – Stewards permitted the mare to race without a tongue tie as a result of the mare becoming fractious when attempts were made to affix the gear.

Marecat (NZ) – Jumped away awkwardly and shifted in abruptly.

Somebody Stop Me (NZ) – Slow to begin. When questioned in relation to tactics adopted in the early stages, Apprentice I. Teh stated that she was instructed to settle at the rear of the field, but shortly after jumping was mindful of the racing mannerisms of WAIKATO and therefore she was reluctant to position herself closer to that horse which resulted in her losing touch with the field. She added in hindsight she should have made a greater effort to place her mount under pressure to maintain contact at the rear of the field. Stewards agreed with Apprentice Teh that she had erred in not riding with vigour in the early stages and reminded her of her obligations to ride her mounts in a manner that does not invite question.

Race 5: KILCOY DIGGERS BENCHMARK 55 Handicap 1900 metres

Correct weight was delayed to allow Jockey S. Collett, rider of 3rd placegetter HAYATE, to view the stewards patrol footage to ascertain if she had grounds to lodge an objection. After declining to do so, correct weight was declared on the judge’s numbers.

Star Centre – Slow to begin. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities. When questioned in relation to the tactics adopted in today’s event, Apprentice Savva stated that after being slow out of the barriers and mindful of the large weight STAR CENTRE was carrying, she felt she would have had to exert to much energy and cover extra ground if she attempted to position the gelding further forward in the field. She added that her mount travelled well throughout the event but commenced to weaken when placed under pressure in the straight. Trainer K. Kemp advised stewards that he felt the gelding is better suited when able to race in a forward position and attributed the disappointing performance to being slow into stride and having to race in a rearward position. He further added that he would freshen the gelding and may experiment with a change of gear prior to racing again in an effort to improve the starting manners of STAR CENTRE. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no significant findings.

Buddy's Tale – Carried wider on the track passing the 1400m and raced wide for the remainder of the event as a result.

Starbuster – Jumped away awkwardly. Carried wider on the track passing the 1400m. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding had bled from both nostrils postrace on the first occasions.

Apprentice Z. Lloyd, rider of TRIP THE LIGHT, was severely reprimanded under the provisions of AR131(a) for attempting a run where in the opinion of stewards there was insufficient room to do so. In determining penalty, stewards took into account the racing mannerisms of SOPHIE’S LASS which hung out rounding the home turn and SHE’S SO VAIN which shifted in marginally both of which were contributing factors to this incident.

Hedonie – Laid out when placed under pressure in the straight.

Red Dress – Raced in restricted room for a number a strides passing the 200m when taken inwards by TRIP THE LIGHT.
