The Sportsman Midweek - - Rosehill Gardens -

RACE 1: Gem Song – slow to be­gin. Near the 1000m was stead­ied avoid

heels of Nuke (J Innes Jr), which shifted in when not clear. J Jr was rep­ri­manded. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing his rid­ing in the straight J Col­lett stated that af­ter en­ter­ing the straight his mount was trav­el­ling well and he elected to im­prove up be­hind Skid­man. He said that when he did not ob­serve a run avail­able ap­proach­ing the 300m he elected to shift out to search for clear run­ning and as he did so Skid­man then shifted out, which pre­sented a run to that colt’s in­side. He added that, as he was com­mit­ted to shift­ing out, con­tin­ued to ride his mount along to search for clear run­ning, which re­sulted in Gem Song be­com­ing very awk­wardly placed on the heels of Royal Cel­e­bra­tion for some dis­tance. He said that soon af­ter Royal Cel­e­bra­tion then shifted out slightly, which pre­sented a run to its in­side he was able ob­tain at the 120m. In ac­knowl­edg­ing that Gem Song had gone on to win the race, Stew­ards ad­vised J Col­lett that he must ride with more care en­sure his mounts are not awk­wardly po­si­tioned close to the heels of other run­ners and, fur­ther­more, such rid­ing may af­fect the fin­ish­ing po­si­tion of his mounts. Cris­to­bal – slow to be­gin. Quack­er­jack – ham­pered on jump­ing by Nuke, which shifted out. Rider B Av­dulla stated that with the mod­er­ate early tempo the colt was in­clined to race keenly. He said near

700m his mount made con­tact with Silent Ex­plorer and failed to run on from that point. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr M Newn­ham ad­vised that in his opin­ion Quack­er­jack was un­suited by the mod­er­ate early tempo and it is now in­ten­tion to re­move the blink­ers from colt and step it up in dis­tance. Mr Newn­ham un­der­took to re­port back if there is any­thing amiss with the colt sub­se­quent to the race. Silent Ex­plorer – near the 1000m, when in­clined to race keenly, hung out and was stead­ied away from heels of Royal Cel­e­bra­tion (A Ad­kins), which shifted in slightly. While Stew­ards ac­cepted the rac­ing man­ners of Silent Ex­plorer were the prin­ci­pal rea­son for this in­ci­dent, A Ad­kins was ad­vised to en­sure that he is suf­fi­ciently clear when shift­ing ground. Hung out through­out the event. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing geld­ing rac­ing fur­ther back than ex­pected to­day, rider K Latham ad­vised that he was un­der in­struc­tions not to ride his mount along in the early stages as it has a ten­dency to race keenly and hang out. He said for this rea­son he did not pres­sure his mount in the early stages, which re­sulted it not show­ing suf­fi­cient speed to cross run­ners to his in­side. Royal Cel­e­bra­tion – raced wide and with­out cover through­out the event. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion of the colt, which was gal­loped on to off-hind leg, re­vealed a mi­nor abra­sion. Skid­man – rider C Brown stated that the colt trav­elled well in the lead, but when placed un­der pres­sure in straight was in­clined to

shift ground and did not re­spond to his rid­ing. He said in his view Skid­man may not have ap­pre­ci­ated rac­ing in a clock­wise di­rec­tion for the first time. A pos­trace ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties.

RACE 2: Lily’s Lit­tle Girl – slow to be­gin. Held up for clear run­ning in the early part of the straight. Over the fi­nal 200m had some dif­fi­culty ob­tain­ing clear run­ning. Jus­tice Honor – slow to be­gin. My Blue Jeans – ham­pered on jump­ing by Lethal Dream, which shifted out. Bur­ran­gong be­gan awk­wardly and made con­tact with My Blue Jeans. Raced wide and with­out cover through­out the event. Hung in in the straight. So It Is – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners. Elec­tric Shadow – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners. Ver­tex – held up on the home turn. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing her rid­ing from the 800m, K O’Hara stated that, whilst a po­si­tion was avail­able for the mare to im­prove into the race, her mount was re­luc­tant to pro­ceed to the in­side of Luc­ci­ola Belle de­spite her ef­forts and for this rea­son lost ground near the 650m. She said that on the home turn in the early part of straight Ver­tex was held up the heels of Jus­tice Honor and, af­ter se­cur­ing clear run­ning at the 250m, ran home strongly. K O’Hara ad­vised that in her view the mare would be bet­ter suited with ad­di­tion of blink­ers and be­ing stepped up in dis­tance. See­blume – held mak­ing the home turn in the early part of straight. Ethanic­ity – dis­ap­pointed for a run to the in­side of Risk And Re­ward near 350m. A post- race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Luc­ci­ola Belle – rider C Brown stated that the mare blun­dered near the 1400m and then was in­clined to race keenly in event. He said in the straight Luc­ci­ola Belle did not re­spond his rid­ing and his view may have han­dled the step up in grade. Think Like A Fox – rider App. S Weather­ley stated that from a wide bar­rier he was obliged to make some use of the mare in the early stages to hold a mid­field po­si­tion. He said Think Like A Fox raced greenly in the run, was in­clined to race keen and near 700m he be­came awk­ward on heels of Luc­ci­ola Belle was obliged to shift out to a four wide po­si­tion, where he was left rac­ing with­out cover from that point. App. Weather­ley said that in the straight Think Like A Fox raced greenly and, af­ter he dropped his near­side rein near the 250m, was one-paced to the fin­ish of race. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. RACE 3: Tarka – ham­pered and car­ried in­wards on jump­ing by Tavirun. Tavirun – be­gan awk­wardly shifted in. Rider H Bow­man stated his in­ten­tion was to lead to­day, how­ever when Thinkin’ Big held the lead in the early stages he then elected to take a po­si­tion to that run­ner’s out­side. He said when Irukandji im­proved his out­side in the

early stages Tavirun com­menced to race keenly and for this rea­son he elected take a po­si­tion be­hind Irukandji near the 1500m. He said in the early stages Tavirun set­tled in a trail­ing po­si­tion and from the 700m he shifted out to com­mence a run, but Tavirun did not re­spond, raced on the wrong lead leg and did not im­prove. He added in the straight when his mount had­notre­spond­ed­to­his­rid­inghe­elect­ed­tode­sist­from­pushin­gitoutover­the­fi­nal200m.

A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Co-trainer Mr T Busut­tin ad­vised that Tavirun had trav­elled up well from his Mel­bourne sta­ble and could only con­cur with the ex­pla­na­tions of­fered by H Bow­man. He said he would have Tavirun sub­jected to a ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion, in­clud­ing an en­doscopy, the re­sults of which he would re­port back to the Stew­ards. He said Tavirun would now re­turn to his Mel­bourne sta­bles and he un­der­took re­port back if there is any­thing amiss with the geld­ing. Panz­er­faust – shortly af­ter start was stead­ied when Tavirun shifted out. Irukandji – over­raced in the early stages.

RACE 4: Goath­land – Stew­ards per­mit­ted T Berry to ride the geld­ing 0.5 kilo­gram over its de­clared weight of 53 kilo­grams. Near the 1800m was al­lowed to stride for­ward by its rider when it would not set­tle in the early stages. Harper’s Choice – be­gan awk­wardly. Miss Ad­mi­ra­tion ham­pered shortly af­ter the start by Harper’s Choice, which shifted out. Sin To Win – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Shal­maneser – when

tempo stead­ied near the 2100m com­menced to race keenly and was checked off the heels of Dark Eyes. Harper’s Choice, which was fol­low­ing, also com­menced to race keenly and shifted out, re­sult­ing in Goath­land be­ing ham­pered. Etah James – pass­ing the win­ning post on the first oc­ca­sion, when

crossed by Cis­mon­tane (J Innes Jr), shifted out, re­sult­ing in Des­tiny’s Kiss be­ing taken wider. In this in­ci­dent Goath­land, which was rac­ing keenly, im­proved to the in­side of Etah James, re­sult­ing in Etah James then be­ing caught wide and with­out cover through­out the early stages. J Innes Jr was asked to ex­er­cise more care and to en­sure he is suf­fi­ciently clear when shift­ing ground. Cis­mon­tane – raced keenly in the mid­dle stages and near the 1600m was checked away from heels of Etah James (C Brown), which shifted in when not clear. C Brown was rep­ri­manded and told to en­sure he is suf­fi­ciently clear when shift­ing ground. In as­sess­ing penalty, Stew­ards took into ac­count the rac­ing man­ners of Cis­mon­tane had con­trib­uted to the in­ter­fer­ence suf­fered by that run­ner. Raced wide and with­out cover through­out mid­dle stages. Dark Eyes – soon af­ter straight­en­ing was ham­pered and bumped by Shal­maneser (A Ad­kins), which shifted out. A Ad­kins was ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. In this in­ci­dent Harper’s Choice and Cis­mon­tane were also ham­pered.

RACE 5: All Too Huiy­ing – Stew­ards per­mit­ted C Reith to ride the horse 1 kilo­gram over its de­clared weight of 53 kilo­grams. Be­gan awk­wardly. A pos­trace ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the horse to have lost its off-fore plate in run­ning. Noire – be­gan awk­wardly, shifted out and made con­tact with All Too Huiy­ing. was then shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Tally – be­gan only fairly. Over the con­clud­ing stages, when po­si­tioned close to the heels of Noire, was in­clined to lay in and could not be tested to the fin­ish of race. Youngstar – near 200m, when en­deav­our­ing to im­prove into a tight run be­tween Kins­guard and All Too Huiy­ing, made con­tact with All Too

which shifted out, as a re­sult be­came un­bal­anced. In this in­ci­dent Youngstar was ac­ci­den­tally struck by the whip of C Reith, rider of All Too Huiy­ing.

then raced in re­stricted room for some dis­tance near the 100m to the in­side of Kings­guard and was not able be fully tested un­til 50m.

RACE 6: Day­see Doom – be­gan awk­wardly. Rider A Ad­kins ad­vised that the mare was able to se­cure a po­si­tion with cover be­hind the lead­ers where it trav­elled well in run and then, once he elected to shift off three wide near the 500m im­prove, Day­see Doom did not quicken as he had ex­pected and gave ground un­der pres­sure in the straight. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Trainer Mr R Quinton ad­vised that Day­see Doom had pleased the sta­ble lead­ing into to­day’s event. He said in his opin­ion the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance was at­trib­ut­able to the fact that the mare had an ex­tended prepa­ra­tion, whereby it trav­elled race dur­ing Queens­land win­ter car­ni­val af­ter rac­ing dur­ing the au­tumn and in his view Day­see Doom raced like a mare in need of a spell. Mr Quinton stated he would now con­sult with the owner of Day­see Doom and re­port back to the Stew­ards on a de­ci­sion in re­spect mare’s rac­ing fu­ture. The mat­ter was ad­journed pend­ing the ad­vice from Mr Quinton in re­spect to Day­see Doom’s rac­ing fu­ture. Magic Al­ibi – be­gan awk­wardly. From its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Shu­mookh – be­gan only fairly. In­vin­ci­bella – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. When ques­tioned re­gard­ing his rid­ing from the 600m and rea­son he did not shift to the out­side of Eck­stein soon af­ter straight­en­ing, H Bow­man stated that af­ter fol­low­ing that run­ner shifted off to im­prove near the 500m. He said when he formed view that Eck­stein was not trav­el­ling well and he ob­served both Prompt Re­sponse Day­see Doom, two fan­cied run­ners, elected to im­prove to the in­side of Eck­stein with a view sav­ing ground and im­prov­ing be­tween run­ners. He added, af­ter mak­ing good ground on the turn in the early part of the straight, both Prompt Re­sponse and Day­see Doom did not quicken as he had an­tic­i­pated and this

re­sulted in In­vin­ci­bella be­ing badly held up on the heels of Prompt Re­sponse for some dis­tance. H Bow­man fur­ther stated that he then elected to en­deav­our to se­cure clear run­ning the in­side of Prompt Re­sponse, but was dis­ap­pointed be­tween Prompt Re­sponse and Princess Posh and did not se­cure clear run­ning un­til in­side the 100m, whereby In­vin­ci­bella com­menced to im­prove. He said over the fi­nal 50m he again could not test his mount when held up on the heels of Cham­pagne Cud­dles. Whilst the Stew­ards ad­vised H Bow­man that in their opin­ion his best op­tion was to fol­low Eck­stein and shift to that run­ner’s out­side on straight­en­ing, they found his de­ci­sion to seek runs through field was not un­rea­son­able in the cir­cum­stances, given he was elect­ing to fol­low two fan­cied run­ners into race and that Eck­stein at that point was un­der pres­sure. Dixie Blos­soms – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Insen­sata – near the 50m was in­clined to lay in and was cor­rected by its rider J Col­lett.

RACE 7: Seabrook – be­gan only fairly. Rider D Oliver could of­fer no ex­pla­na­tion for the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance and agreed that the filly had per­formed be­low ex­pec­ta­tions. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed the filly to be dis­play­ing the thumps. Trainer Mr M Price un­der­took to re­port back to the Stew­ards on post-race con­di­tion of the filly in the days sub­se­quent. San­tos – be­gan awk­wardly and shifted in, mak­ing con­tact with the hindquar­ter of Sand­bar. Sand­bar – bumped on the hindquar­ter on jump­ing by San­tos. Lean Mean Ma­chine – for some dis­tance in early stages raced tight to the in­side of Seabrook (D Oliver). Near 1000m Lean Mean Ma­chine was stead­ied as its rider T Ang­land re­strained to ob­tain cover be­hind Graff when po­si­tioned tight to the in­side of Seabrook. D Oliver was ad­vised he should ex­er­cise more care in sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances. Rider T Ang­land stated that the colt raced keenly the early stages and, af­ter be­ing stead­ied away from heels of Graff at 1000m, was able to find a trail­ing po­si­tion where it trav­elled rea­son­ably well. He said in the straight Lean Mean Ma­chine changed legs on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions be­fore fin­ish­ing the race off fairly. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. RACE 8: The Avenger – slow to be­gin. Near 300m was ham­pered when crowded be­tween Got Un­ders and As­to­ria (J McDon­ald), which shifted to the in­side of Lofty’s Menu. J McDon­ald was ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. A short dis­tance later Got Un­ders was ham­pered when mo­men­tar­ily crowded by Tip Top (T Clark), which shifted out. T Clark was ad­vised to ex­er­cise more care. Fierce Im­pact – from its wide bar­rier shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Laid out over the fi­nal 100m. Sava­cool – from the out­side bar­rier

was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. When com­menc­ing to make ground near the 100m was in­con­ve­nienced when Fierce Im­pact shifted out slightly, which re­sulted in J Ford, rider of Sava­cool, hav­ing to stop rid­ing and straighten his mount for a num­ber of strides. Lofty’s Menu – raced wide and with­out cover through­out the event. As­to­ria – when ques­tioned re­gard­ing the dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance, rider J McDon­ald stated, af­ter trav­el­ling well into the straight, he elected to shift to

in­side of Lofty’s Menu im­prove and in do­ing so made con­tact with The Avenger. He said af­ter this in­ci­dent As­to­ria took some time to bal­ance up, but nonethe­less was dis­ap­point­ing in its fail­ure to fin­ish the race off. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Mr D Bead­man, rep­re­sent­ing trainer J Cum­mings, un­der­took to re­port back on the progress of the mare in the days sub­se­quent.

RACE 9: Ta­ma­rack – Stew­ards per­mit­ted B Av­dulla to ride the geld­ing 1 kilo­gram over its de­clared weight of 53 kilo­grams. Jake’s Hill – af­ter be­ing slow to be­gin was ham­pered shortly af­ter­wards by Good­fella, which shifted out, Op­po­si­tion - from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Af­ter be­ing held up on heels of Ta­ma­rack for a short dis­tance near the 200m, be­came awk­ward the that run­ner when Ta­ma­rack shifted out slightly. Ab­don – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Rider H Bow­man stated that his mount got a long way back in the event and then in the straight was re­luc­tant to shift to out­side of run­ners im­prove, which re­sulted in Ab­don be­ing held up. He said Ab­don con­tin­ued to lay in for the re­main­der of the event. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth un­der­took to re­port back on the progress of the geld­ing in the days sub­se­quent. Quick De­fence – from its wide bar­rier was shifted in be­hind run­ners in the early stages. Rider T Berry stated that his mount was un­suited in hav­ing to race to­wards the rear of the field from his wide bar­rier and as a con­se­quence the geld­ing found it dif­fi­cult to make up ground in the straight. A post-race ve­teri­nary ex­am­i­na­tion did not re­veal any ab­nor­mal­i­ties. Sta­ble rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mr C Duck­worth un­der­took to re­port back on the progress of geld­ing in the days sub­se­quent. Naval War­fare – laid in in the early stages. Raqeeq in the early part of the straight was held up when un­able to se­cure clear run­ning be­tween Good­fella and The Lord Mayor. Af­ter briefly se­cur­ing
