Supplementary Report:

Rosehill Gardens Saturday 22 February 2020

Trainer Mr C. Morgan was fined $500 under AR252(1) for having in his possession a substance, namely, Airlight Plus, which had not been registered, labelled, prescribed, dispensed or obtained in accordance with the applicable Commonwealth and State legislation. In determining penalty Stewards were conscious that analysis of the substance by the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory confirmed that the product did not contain any prohibited substances.

RACE 1: Hyland EOFY Sale Plate 1550m:

Chateaux Park – From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced keenly in the early stages. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be slow to recover.

 

Teronito – Approaching the 700m shifted out slightly and made contact with Mooy. A short distance later Teronito had to be steadied when crowded briefly by Mooy, which shifted in marginally.

 

Zounate – Laid out rounding the home turn.

 

Mooy – Began only fairly.

 

RACE 2: All Too Hard @ Vinery Handicap 1250m:

Prompt Prodigy– Rounding the home turn was hampered and taken wider by Linden Tree, which shifted out. Rider A. Hyeronimus could offer no explanation for the performance of the colt and stated that in his opinion Prompt Prodigy may have come to the end of its preparation. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Trainer Mr E. Cummings advised that Prompt Prodigy will now be spelled.

 

Castlecomer– On jumping shifted in and made contact with Oregon. Laid out rounding the home turn.

 

Linden Tree– From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced keenly in the early stages. Laid out rounding the home turn.

 

Tycoonist– Shortly after the start was crowded between Prompt Prodigy and Castlecomer, which shifted out. Laid in over the final 100m. Lost its off-fore plate.

 

RACE 3: Harry Angel @ Darley Handicap 1250m:

Heart Of Siena– Near the 350m had to be severely checked when crowded between Global Queen and Sprout Wings (N. Rawiller), which, after improving on to the heels of the weakening Tastebud, shifted out to avoid the heels of that runner. In issuing a reprimand against N. Rawiller the Stewards were mindful that Tastebud had weakened suddenly in advance of him after he had commenced to ride Sprout Wings forward to improve on to the back of that runner. In the incident Sprout Wings was bumped on the hindquarters and was turned out, which exacerbated the pressure and crowding applied to Heart Of Siena.  A post-race veterinary examination revealed the filly to be slow to recover.

 

Global Queen– Approaching the 150m shifted in and made slight contact with Sprout Wings. A short distance later Global Queen was hampered and taken out by Sprout Wings when that runner shifted ground after being bumped on the hindquarters by Global Queen.

 

Obiri– From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

 

Psychic– From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Held up rounding the home turn before securing clear running to the inside of Sheer Treasure approaching the 300m.

 

Sheer Treasure– Began only fairly. Rider T. Berry reported that after being crossed by Sprout Wings after the 1000m the filly immediately became under pressure and was reluctant to improve its position to the inside of Musical Girl throughout the middle stages. He said, however, that when into clear running shortly after entering the straight Sheer Treasure finished off its race satisfactorily and, in his opinion, would benefit by being stepped up in distance at its next race start.

 

Tastebud– Rider T. Clark reported that the filly, which was up in grade today, in his opinion failed to handle the heavy track conditions and may have come to the end of its preparation. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Co-trainer Mr A. Bott advised that Tastebudwill now be spelled.

 

Tight Ropes– Shortly after the start was bumped by Honored Vow, which shifted out.

 

Musical Girl– Slow to begin. Near the 1000m was crowded briefly by Sprout Wings, which shifted in.

 

RACE 4: Ranvet Power Handicap 1550m:

Boomtown Rat– Began only fairly and from a wide barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

 

Holy Reign– Near the 450m raced in restricted room to the inside of Black Wand and was eased. Rider T. Berry reported that it was his intention to settle in a position in advance of Black Wand, however, when the gelding did not show sufficient pace in the early stages to do so he was obliged to ease his mount and obtain a position behind that runner. He said that he could offer no explanation for the gelding's failure to finish off its race after being under pressure from the 400m. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Black Wand– Shortly after the start was hampered by Holy Reign, which shifted in. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be lame (2/5) in the near-foreleg. Trainer Mr K. Goldman was advised that a veterinary clearance will be required before Black Wandis permitted to race/barrier trial again.

 

RACE 5: TAB Handicap 1100m:

Lancaster Bomber– Began awkwardly.

 

Bella Rosa– From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Rider J. McDonald reported that the filly did not at any stage throughout the event and following the race he heard Bella Rosa to make an abnormal respiratory noise. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the filly to be displaying cardiac arrhythmia. Stable representative Ms A. Neesham was advised that a veterinary clearance, including the results of an ECG, will be required before Bella Rosais permitted to race/barrier trial again

 

Tchaikovsky– Slow to begin.

 

Sweeping Statement– From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Flash Fibian– Raced keenly in the middle stages. Near the 350m was eased from the heels of Lancaster Bomber when that runner shifted out to improve.

 

Margie Bee– Raced wide and without cover throughout the event.

 

Gunnaza– The gelding was a late scratching at 10.05am by order of the Stewards when no rider was available to ride at the allotted weight.

 

RACE 6: Calyx @ Coolmore Australia Handicap 1900m:

Lord Gododdin– Approaching the 200m was restrained from the heels of Monsieur Sisu when that runner shifted out under pressure.

 

Monsieur Sisu– Began only fairly and shortly afterwards was hampered by Californiafirebird, which shifted out. T. Berry pleaded guilty to a charge under AR132(7)(a)(ii) in that he used his whip on nine occasions prior to the 100m. T. Berry was fined $800.

 

Monasterio– Raced keenly in the middle stages. When asked for an explanation regarding the disappointing performance, rider K. McEvoy stated that he would have preferred to lead the event, however, was unable to do so when Monsieur Sisu secured the lead before leaving the straight on the first occasion. He added that Monasterio was under pressure prior to the home turn and was disappointing in the manner in which if finished off the race. Having regard to the performance, K. McEvoy added that in his view the gelding would be advantaged when leading and able to dictate the terms of the race. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding slow to recover.
