Other Comments / Explanations:  T. Sadler was fined $30 for failing to present his winning rides book.   In arriving at penalty Stewards took into consideration that this was T.

Near the 800 metres Twin Spires got its head up when over-racing.

At the entrance to the home straight You’ve Been Warned was momentarily inconvenienced by Lightning Legs, which hung out rounding the turn.

You’ve Been Warned had a tendency to lay in in the straight.

Over the concluding stages You’ve Been Warned continued to lay in, resulting in its rider T. Neve having to stop riding and straighten her mount.

R. Wiliams rider of Lightning Legs reported that her mount laid out throughout the event.


Our Swagman and Stradale were slow tobegin.

After passing the 1100 metres Our Swagman had to be steadied and was taken in off its course when Glenaroua (D. Lane) shifted in abruptly when not quite clear. D. Lane was issued with a severe reprimand and notified that he must ensure he is two lengths clear when shifting ground at all times.   In arriving at penalty Stewards were of the view that Our Swagman which had been slow to begin, did make up some ground to the inside of Glenaroua.   Likeadylan which had been racing to the inside of Our Swagman was inconvenienced at this point.

Bouzeron was slow to begin.

M. Rodd rider of Mystic Dancer which performed below market expectations, stated that due to the lack of pace in todays event he setted more forward than at the mare’s most recent starts and it did not finished off the event as he would have expected.

Boho broke down in a rear fetlock on pulling up and was huanely euthorised.

Race 5 – KYNETON ELECTRICCS 0-58 HANDICAP - 1850 metres: 

Acting on a confirmed telephone call from trainer S. Roberts who advised that Kempside had sustained lacerations to its legs and was unfit to run, Stewards ordered the withdrawal of that gelding at 8.43 a.m.   Mr. Roberts will produce a Veterinary Certificate in respect to Kempside.

Prior to correct weight B. Rawiller, rider of equal first placegetter Revel In Glory, viewed the official photo finish print before agreeing with the judge’s decision. B Rawiller also viewed footage of video in the straight before deciding not to proceed with an objection.
