Drama keeps stewards busy
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Crown got his head over the top of the front stall frame and whacked his jaw on top of the stall meaning he had to be withdrawn.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.
