I'd imagine he'll be in a spot of bother for easing up on Rednrich in the 6th at Randwick today about 30 metres from the line.
He must have thought he had 3rd in the bag and got nutted on the line.
RACE 6: Hula Chief Handicap 1800m:
Trainer Mr J Coyle’s explanation of the late withdrawal of Rollins at 7.46 am was
accepted. Universal Colours was slow to begin. In the early stages of the straight
Rednrich was held up behind King Of The Sun and Arlington. When questioned
regarding his riding of Rednrich approaching the finishing line, H Bowman stated that,
after passing the 200m, Rednrich challenged strongly to the inside of King Of The Sun,
however, over the concluding stages commenced to give ground, changed stride and
felt awkward in its action, which resulted in him riding the gelding with less vigour
nearing the post. Whilst Stewards accepted H Bowman’s explanation, he was advised
to ensure that he tests his mounts fully where circumstances permit.
A post race
veterinary examination of Regal Dane revealed the mare to have aggravated a speedy
cut to its off hind pastern.
It would have run 3rd had he ridden it out, Stewards are soft cocks
