The steward's report would tend to support Michelle's concern.
These horses had lameness issues after a day out on the so called good track yesterday......Theanswermyfriend, Crockett, Hey Doc, Rich Charm, Merriest, Native Soldier, Ef Troop and Mr Garcia. Who would know how many were jarred right up as well.
While accepting there would be varying degrees of lameness here I would say that it will be the last we see of some of these horses for a while.
The problem I have with very firm tracks is purely on the animal welfare issue and if Winx had been at Flemington yesterday there is no way the day would start on a good 3.
It has to be said that the Randwick good 3 these days is much kinder and horses look like they will really let down on it.
