Drama keeps stew­ards busy

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

THERE were all sorts of dra­mas at the bar­ri­ers be­fore the High­way. The Drake got right down on the ground and was lash­ing out at horses in ad­ja­cent stalls and left Glen Boss with a sore knee. At a stew­ards’ in­quiry, Boss put a bag of on ice on his right knee and said he was fit to keep rid­ing. As The Drake was be­ing taken out of the bar­ri­ers, Burn­ing Crown got his head over the top of the front stall frame and whacked his jaw on top of the stall mean­ing he had to be with­drawn. It was a tough call for Sue Grills who only had one run­ner and had to make an early five-hour trek back to Tam­worth.
