Baker pleaded guilty to a charge under AR100 for having failed to notify Stewards within the prescribed time (30 minutes) that O’Mudgee would be ridden conservatively in the aforementioned race. Mr Baker was fined $500. When questioned regarding the improved performance of O’Mudgee, Mr Baker stated that the gelding benefitted from being ridden in a conservative manner, appreciated also being stepped up in distance and has performed best in the past when racing on soft-rated tracks as opposed to the heavy track it raced on at its last start.

 

Wyong Saturday 8 January 2022

RACE 1: The Agency Real Estate Handicap 1300m:

I Say Hello– Began awkwardly. Rider S. Clipperton reported that the mare sweated up prior to the event, but after travelling well behind the lead failed to respond to his riding in the straight. A post-race veterinary examination revealed I Say Hello to be slow to recover. Mr D. Greer, representing trainer Mr K. Lees, undertook to report back to Stewards on the recovery and future plans for the mare.

 

Titanium Power– Laid in in the straight.

 

Centimental– Shortly after the start shifted in and made contact with Deel With Me.

 

Royal Exit– Slow to begin and from a wide barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced keenly in the middle stages and at the 600 was steadied from the heels of Kanazawa.

 

Kir Royale– Began awkwardly.

 

Kanazawa– Began awkwardly and from a wide barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

 

Deel With Me– After beginning only fairly, lost ground shortly after when tightened for room between Centimental and Ficheur, both of which shifted ground. Near the 300m improved into a narrow run between Royal Exit and I Say Hello, which was commencing to give ground and as a result was held up monetarily and made contact with Royal Exit.

 

RACE 2: Davali Handicap 1100m:

Flashing Steel– Began awkwardly and from the outside barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

 

Frozen Prince– Near the 900m was steadied to avoid the heels of Street Smarts (K. Latham) which shifted in when not clear. K. Latham was reprimanded. When questioned regarding the performance, App. T. Sherry stated that the gelding endured a wide run without cover and when placed under pressure raced greenly and was inclined to lay out. He added that these two factors were the principal reasons for the gelding’s disappointing performance.   A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding had been galloped on the off-hind leg.

 

Midnightinmontreal– When questioned regarding the performance, App. R. Jones stated that the colt travelled satisfactorily behind the lead but had some difficulty securing clear running between the 400m and the 250m. He added that when placed under pressure in the straight Midnightinmontreal responded only fairly and would appreciate being stepped up in distance for its next race start. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Stable representative Mr N. Paine advised that the colt will now be spelled.

 

Northern Beaches– Slow to begin. Raced keenly in the middle stages and for some distance near the 800m was steadied from the heels of Midnightinmontreal.

 

Treasurer– Began awkwardly, shifted in abruptly and made contact with Midnightinmontreal. Rider A. Collett reported that the colt raced greenly throughout the event, responded only fairly under pressure in the straight but would derive benefit from today’s performance, particularly after having only one barrier trial in the lead-up to today’s race. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the colt to be slow to recover.

 

Madame Pommery– Near the 800m became unbalanced when racing tight to the inside of Midnightinmontreal.

 

Smart Vengeance– Prior to the declaration of correct weight, Stewards gave consideration as to whether there were sufficient grounds to protest against 3rd placegetter, Flashing Steel, following that runner shifting out near the 100m. The Stewards could not be fully satisfied that Smart Vengeance had established clear running to the outside of Flashing Steel or that any interference suffered by Smart Vengeance had materially affected the finishing position of Smart Vengeance. Consequently, Stewards were satisfied there were no sufficient grounds to lodge a protest and correct weight was declared. Shifted out at the start and made contact with Northern Beaches. Near the 800m was steadied from the heels of Madame Pommery and brushed the running rail. Near the 100m was shifted to the outside of Flashing Steel to continue into clear running and after being directed to the outside of that runner then was hampered when Flashing Steel shifted out.

 

Street Smarts– Began awkwardly and then shortly after was bumped by Frozen Prince, which shifted out.

 

RACE 3: TAB Highway Handicap 1500m:

Activation– Hampered at the start when crowded for room between Absolute Trust and Pay The Deeler, which was taken in.

 

Absolute Trust– Began awkwardly, shifted out abruptly and made contact with Activation and as a consequence lost ground. Rider J. Parr advised that the gelding was fractious prior to the event and particularly behind the barriers. He said that his mount did not respond to his urgings throughout the event and may have been resenting some gear, either the tongue-tie or crossover nose band, that was placed on the horse.  A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Trainer Mr T. McIntosh expressed his disappointment with the performance and agreed with the comments of J. Parr in regard to the gelding resenting the tongue-tie. He noted that Absolute Trust had raced previously with the crossover nose band, therefore, was of the view that the gelding was more inclined to have resented the tongue-tie. He added that it now is his intention to remove the tongue-tie from the gelding’s racing gear. Nevertheless, Stewards advised Mr McIntosh that Absolute Trust would be required to barrier trial to the satisfaction of the Stewards prior to being permitted to race again.

 

Banju– Trainer Mr L. Chandler was fined $100 under AR194 for presenting the gelding in the mounting enclosure six minutes prior to the running of this event.

 

Lord Desanimaux– Began awkwardly. Near the 1000m brushed the running rail. Near the 250m, when commencing to make ground to the inside of All Over Magic, raced tight to that runner’s inside for a short distance.

 

King’s Trust– On the home turn was shifted to the outside of Tags to secure a tight run to that runner’s outside and as a result made contact with Pruscino. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to have lost its near-hind shoe and to have been galloped on the near-hind leg sustaining a superficial abrasion to the lateral coronary band.

 

Tags– Stewards permitted N. Heywood to ride the gelding a half kilogram over its allotted weight of 57kgs. Began only fairly. From the 1100m was left raced wide and without cover and as a result rider N. Heywood allowed the gelding to stride forward in the middle stages, whereby Tags took up a position outside the lead near the 600m.

 

Endangered Species– Began awkwardly.

 

Lucky Banner– Began only fairly and from the outside barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced wide and without cover for the majority of the event.

 

Pay The Deeler– Tightened for room at the start between Activation and Pruscino. Rider L. Day reported that the intention was to be more forward on the mare, but after commencing awkwardly her mount settled further back. She added that Pay The Deeler was under pressure to hold its position for the majority of the event and responded fairly under pressure in the straight. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be lame (2/5) in the near-foreleg. Trainer Mr P. Sweeney was advised that a veterinary clearance will be required before Pay The Deeler is permitted to race/barrier trial again.

 

Pruscino– Began awkwardly.

 

Morgenstern– Began awkwardly and lost ground. Raced keenly in the early stages and near the 1300m was steadied from the heels of Lord Desanimaux.

 

Sacred Spice– Near the 600m was hampered when crowded by Endangered Species (J. Grisedale), which shifted in. J. Grisedale was advised to exercise more care. J. Grisedale (Endangered Species) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under AR131(a) in that near the 1100m he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of Sacred Spice, resulting in that runner having to be steadied and losing its running at that point. J. Grisedale’s licence was suspended for a period to commence on Monday 24 January 2022 and to expire on Sunday 30 January 2022, on which day he may ride.

 

RACE 4: Midway Handicap 1200m:

Easy Campese – Began awkwardly, shifted out and made contact with Kosciusko.

 

Saquon – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Near the 800m was inclined to lay in and had to be steadied to avoid the heels of Crosscheck.

 

Misteed – For a short distance near the 250m had difficulty obtaining clear running between Hibiscus Lady and Kosciusko.

 

Sky Command – App. R. Jones reported that the filly began a little awkwardly and as a result was unable to cross to lead and was obliged to race outside the early leader, Eyewitness. He stated that in his opinion Sky Command did not run out a strong 1200m first up today. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the filly to be slow to recover.

 

Crosscheck – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Near the 200m had to be checked when disappointed for clear running between Easy Campese and Hibiscus Lady (S. Clipperton), which shifted out abruptly away from Misteed. S. Clipperton was reprimanded and advised that he must stop riding and straighten his mounts when they commence to shift ground whilst Stewards acknowledged that Hibiscus Lady had shifted quickly in this incident.

 

Hibiscus Lady – Raced keenly in the early stages when being restrained to obtain cover behind Kosciusko.

 

Kosciusko – When questioned, App. C. Waddell stated that while she had identified a position was available with cover behind Sky Command in the early stages, her mount raced keenly throughout the early and middle stages of the event and as a result was obliged to race wide and without cover for the majority of the event as she was concerned she may have struck heels if she obtained a position with cover.

 

Twice As Special – Slow to begin. Near the 800m was tightened momentarily by Misteed when that runner was racing tight to the inside of Easy Campese. Over the final 50m could not be fully tested when unable to improve into a narrow run between Eyewitness and Finally Realise.

 

The Fossil – Began only fairly. At the 800m was steadied from the heels of Twice As Special. Near the 300m was directed to the outside of Twice As Special to continue into clear running. Approaching the 50m experienced difficulty obtaining clear running when improving into a narrow run between Sky Command and Kosciusko.

 

RACE 5: Hyland Race Colours Handicap 2000m:

Dhakuri– Slow to begin.

 

High Court– Rider S. Clipperton stated that after obtaining a forward position in the early stages, with the moderate pace he commenced a forward move from the 700m in order to attempt to establish a break on the favourite, Niffler, and also to endeavour to hold it in a pocket behind the leader, Sword Point. He stated that High Court responded to his riding initially at that point, but came under pressure from the 500m and raced in a disappointing manner thereafter. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be slow to recover and to have sustained a small laceration to the off-fore fetlock. Trainer Mr J. Englebrecht was asked to report back on the post-race condition of High Court in the days subsequent.

 

Niffler– A post-race veterinary examination revealed the mare to be slow to recover.

 

Singapura– Began only fairly.

 

Real Time Warrior– Began only fairly and from the outside barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

 

Reposition– Slow to begin. Near the 600m was bumped by Niffler when that runner shifted out to improve to the outside of Sword Point. As a result, Reposition then raced in restricted room between Niffler and High Court for some distance thereafter.

 

RACE 6: Acy Securities Handicap 1500m:

For Valour– Began awkwardly, shifted in and bumped Loveplanet. Rider R. Bayliss reported that in his opinion the gelding raced like it had reached the end of its preparation. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be slow to recover. Stewards will follow up on the future race plans of the gelding.

 

Blesk– Began awkwardly, shifted out and made contact with Monegal.

 

Crystal Pegasus– Slow to begin. Briefly held up near the 250m.

 

Loveplanet– Rider J. Parr could offer no explanation for the disappointing performance of the gelding. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be slow to recover. Stewards will follow up on the post-race condition of Loveplanet in the days subsequent.

 

Caesars Palace– Rider G. Schofield reported that in his opinion the gelding had not backed up from its last start at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday 8 January 2022. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be slow to recover.

 

Speed Legend– Near the 1300m was inclined to shift away from For Valour as that runner crossed to the running rail and as a consequence became unbalanced. When questioned regarding his riding in the straight, App. C. Williams stated that after following For Valour, on straightening, when he observed Loveplanet lay out, his first response was to improve between Loveplanet and For Valour. He said that when Loveplanet was straightened by its rider, J. Parr, he was unable to proceed into that run and he then commenced to move to the inside of For Valour when he noticed that runner lay out slightly away from the running rail. He added that when For Valour maintained a position half a horse away from the running rail he was unable to secure clear running and became awkwardly placed close to the heels of that runner. He said for this reason he was not able to obtain a position directly behind For Valour to take advantage of a run to the outside of that runner. As a result, he was obliged to steady Speed Legend and shift to the outside of For Valour at the 150m, at which point he secured clear running. After considering his explanation, Stewards found the tactics adopted by App. Williams were reasonable in the circumstances.

 

RACE 7: Schweppes Handicap 1100m:

Belluci Babe– When questioned regarding the tactics adopted on the mare, App. J. Duggan advised that with the expected fast early pace her instructions were to find a position with cover behind the leaders. She stated that in the early stages, when caught wide and when there was no prospect of obtaining cover, she elected to push forward on Belluci Babe to avoid racing wide. She said that her mount responded well to her urgings and improved forward quickly, whereby she was able to position outside the leader, Mr Mosaic. She further stated that once in this position and when the pace of the event eased slightly, Belluci Babe commenced to race keenly and as a result raced closer to the leader, Mr Mosaic, than she had intended. When questioned as to whether there was an opportunity to ride Belluci Babe more patiently rounding the home turn and in the early stages of the straight, App. Duggan stated that the mare, under her own running, improved to the outside of Mr Mosaic on the home turn and then on straightening, when Belluci Babe continued to improve, she rode the mare forward in order to endeavour to establish a break on Mr Mosaic. She added that near the 150m the mare’s run peaked before being able to hold on for 2nd place. Stewards advised App. Duggan that the tactics adopted in the early stages to race outside Mr Mosaic were reasonable, however, given that Belluci Babe was racing first up and the use that she had to make of the mare in the early stages, she had made an error of judgement rounding the home turn and in the early stages of the straight by allowing Belluci Babe to improve quickly and placing her mount under pressure too soon.

 

The Bopper– At the start was tightened for room between Belluci Babe and Amiche, both of which shifted ground. When questioned, rider J. Parr stated, as notified by the Stewards, that the intention was to be more forward should the gelding commence well. He stated that after beginning well and when positioned to the outside of Bulletin he had expected that runner to shift to the running rail, which would have provided him with a position one off with cover behind Belluci Babe, as that runner was progressing forward. He stated that when Bulletin maintained a one-off position, he was obliged to remain racing behind that runner to avoid racing wide and, further, he was content to hold this position due to the genuine early pace. J. Parr added that after making a move from the 500m to the outside of Bulletin, The Bopper commenced to respond to his riding in the straight, albeit that it was inclined to lay in and finished off the race reasonably well over the final 100m. Having considered J. Parr’s explanation, Stewards found that the tactics he adopted were reasonable in the circumstances.

 

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

 

Starla– Raced keenly in the middle stages and at the 700m became unbalanced when racing tight to the inside of Princess Rihanna.

 

Princess Rihanna– When questioned regarding the mare settling towards the rear of the field, J. Innes Jnr stated that his intention was to hold a forward position in or behind the lead. He said that Princess Rihanna began awkwardly and he was struck in the face by the mare, however, when he observed Bulletin, which he expected to lead, cross his mount, he was content to take up the position behind that runner. He added that when The Bopper improved to his outside and when he received a call from R. Bayliss, rider of Starla, which was positioned to his inside, he did not contest the position behind Bulletin and allowed The Bopper to cross his mount. Stewards advised J. Innes Jnr that he had made an error of judgement in the early stages in not riding his mount with more urgency to ensure Princess Rihanna was able to maintain a position behind Bulletin as he had been instructed to do.

 

Amiche– After beginning only fairly, then was hampered after shifting out and making contact with the hindquarter of The Bopper.

 

RACE 8: Ranvet Handicap 1350m:

Rubamos – Began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped Mensa Missile. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Rider R. Bayliss stated that the gelding travelled satisfactorily in the run but did not respond to his riding when placed under pressure in the straight. He said that in his opinion Rubamos may have reached the end of its preparation. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Trainer Mr C. Waller will be asked to report back on the post-race condition of the gelding in the days subsequent.

 

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

 

Mensa Missile – Rider J. Van Overmeire stated that he made some use of his mount in the early stages to lead, as instructed, but in the straight the gelding did not respond to his riding and was disappointing. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities. Stewards will follow up on the post-race condition and future race plans of the gelding with the stable in the days subsequent.

 

Super Effort – Rider J. Ford reported that the gelding travelled strongly in the run and was placed under pressure from the 500m, however, did not respond to his riding and was disappointing. He added that after passing the winning post the gelding pulled up quickly. A post-race veterinary examination revealed Super Effort to have bled from both nostrils for the first time. Co-trainer Mr S. Alexiou was advised of the provisions of AR79(4).

 

Black Duke – Slow to begin and from a wide barrier then was shifted behind runners in the early stages.

 

Bowery Breeze – From the outside barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. On straightening was shifted to the outside of Tamerlane to improve. Approaching the 250m was steadied when disappointed for clear running between Tamerlane and Rubamos, which commenced to weaken. Bowery Breeze then was badly held up for clear running until approaching the 100m.

 

RACE 9: Rosehill Bowling Club Handicap 1200m:

Liberty Sun – Began awkwardly.

 

Pandano – Began awkwardly.

 

Perigord – Began very awkwardly and lost ground as a result.

 

Ulysses – Near the 700m struck the running rail and became unbalanced.

 

Irish Songs – From a wide barrier was shifted behind runners in the early stages. When being restrained from the heels of Ulysses near the 700m, shifted in and made contact with the running rail. Held up for a short distance near the 400m. Near the 150m became awkwardly placed on the heels of Ocean Emperor and was inclined to lay in, and as a result was steadied.

 

Olympic Legend – App. C. Williams reported that near the 700m his mount, when racing greenly, struck the running rail and became badly unbalanced. He said that from that point Olympic Legend did not travel comfortably and failed to respond to his riding in the straight. A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Fastconi – Near the 1000m was steadied when crowded by Ranges (S. Clipperton), which shifted in. S. Clipperton was reprimanded. Near the 700m was steadied when crowded between Liberty Sun and Ulysses, which shifted out. Near the 300m became held up when disappointed for clear running between Pandano and Ranges, both of which shifted ground slightly.

 

Key Largo – Began awkwardly, shifted out and made contact with El Buena. From a wide barrier Key Largo then was shifted behind runners in the early stages. Raced keenly in the early stages and near the 900m was steadied from the heels of Liberty Sun. At the 700m was steadied from the heels of Fastconi.

 

Ocean Emperor – Shortly after the start shifted in abruptly

 

RACE 10: Ned Whisky Handicap 1100m:

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

Steel Diamond – Began only fairly.

 

Switched – A post-race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.

 

Lepreezy – Rider B. Loy reported that he had to make some use of the mare to cross and lead in the early stages.

A post-race veterinary examination revealed the mare to be slow to recover.

 

Star Cherie – Between the 350m and 300m had some difficulty obtaining a narrow run between Lepreezy and Switched. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the mare to be slow to recover.
