After the running of Race 4, the track classification was officially changed from "Good” to "Good to Firm”. This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective. As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 4 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm”.
2. 15 November 2023 Happy Valley Racemeeting – Race 3 (169)
PRINCE ALEX – A veterinary inspection immediately following the race determined that the horse was displaying an abnormal heart rhythm. An ECG examination was subsequently performed as per protocol and sent for a specialist opinion the following day. A specialist review of the post-race ECG performed on PRINCE ALEX has determined that the horse was not displaying a significant irregular heart rhythm. However, the Stewards have determined that before being allowed to race again, PRINCE ALEX will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
