First at Strathalbyn

M TYNDALL (a4.0) in 6 horse field on bolter, takes on 2nd fav over 1200 and didn't let up.
2nd fav gets nailed in last bit by odds on pop, guess who laid odds on pop?

Most of these apprentices shouldn't be allowed onto a racecourse let alone on a horse  :mad: :mad: :mad:

Did ya notice he didn't even ride it out from the 100 when 4th or 5th were still a possibility?

C Symonds - Roslotta. You f-wit.

Having backed Roslotta, that was my immediate reaction.  Having watched the head on replay, I am not sure he did anything wrong.  Did you want him to come 4 wide at the 700 and give the favourite the cart into the race?  He was unlucky, but it wasn't the jocks fault.

He settled her back in the Reisling, can't believe he didn't opt for cover myself.

S. McGruddy in the 5th at Ascot has just won the award not just for 2009 but wins the "ever" award.

Un :censored: ingbelievably bad ride.

Barn Burner had 6 lengths on the field(at least).

and then this dumb  :censored: ing prick after being 3 lengths last in the clear in an 8 horse field manages to get it snookered in for at least 300m when he should've been making his run.

Gave the winner conservatively 10 lengths at the 300m when he finally got it out and got beat less than a half.

Danny Brereton on Ista Kareem on saturday at Randwick was a very bad ride. I thought it was disgraceful that up the straight he was whipping the horse yet the horse had nowhere to go, he ran it straight up the arse of 2 or 3 horses and still whipped it. Where the hell did he think the horse was going to accelerate to? Definitely should've won with a better ride, but Brereton's wasn't just bad it was cruel, in my opinion.

Edit: if you see the head on it shows more clearly that at no stage did he get the horse in a spot where it could run straight.

if you watch it closely, he goes inside the one he was trailing when it hangs wider or eased wider and when it comes back down it breaks.

no protest as he beat it home. Had a fair bit on it across several places. Luckily did go E/W at the odds. Expected it to be close to fav.

Very rare to get those type of overs and that shit happens. Then the  :censored: er in perth topped it all off.  :lol:

he rode one about a month ago,3 in front at the 200,hes hardly moving on it over the last 200,doesn't pull the stick,and hardly riding it hands and heels at all,gets pipped on the line,i went to check who was riding it,thinking it was a 3-4kg girl having maybe 1st ride,was shocked when i saw t.traichel as the rider,because he is a very aggressive rider in the straight normally,and before anyone says did i back it,the answer is no,i don't bet in too many races,but i watch them all,i mentioned the ride on betfair forum,and was interested to see if anything in stewards report,but no

Terry must have missed his ride because he was still asleep at the Gold Coast. ( or a couple of the people who plonked it caught up with him in the car park)

Even though this horse won yesterday...but all jokes aside though gee it was a low ride by Brereton...on Work the Room....he jumps out and deliberately snags the horse back to last....even left Colin Little speechless after the race...i told him  to settled back on the horse...but i didn't think he'd get that far back little said... :o..lucky you won Danny as you would of been in the stewards room mate and no doubt got time over it... ;)

sporty,if you're going to go back from a wide draw,you are between a rock and and a hard place trying to get into the perfect position,you will invariably be last or close to it,he got it onto the rail,but he was already off the rail coming to the turn,and it was the hillside course(the long run in)so he was going to get an uninterrupted run,smart horse.

but my vote for worst ride ever goes to,all the things you ever rode   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

Judgey i don't give a  :censored: mate ...if he'd got beat on the horse...he would of got pulled in mate...he rode the horse like a kid having his first ride in the race...now be honest if he'd got beat everybody would of saying what a tragedy beaten he was....colin little said before the race...we can turn him out to be a top notch sprinter if we like...but we are trying to get him settled because naturally there looking to get him up to a mile and 10 furlongs...but  that snagging business was a joke...  emthdown...was a low ride.. ;)

where did you expect him to settle sporty,noting he had either the outside gate,or close to it,and that he was also told to get back?
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Authorized on 2009-May-21, 10:07 AM
Could he have settled midfield 3 and 4 wide and still finished off the race ?

I think he could have, we will never know though.

Go and look at the ride on So You Think on the So You Think thread.

had he of got beat


he did set it a task,but i think that was more from what he had to overcome,and to be honest,i didn't know what he was going to do at the start,being that he was stepping up 200m in distance,i gave it a possibility of going forward,even though he came from well off pace at his debut,but that was 1100m,and they ran time,had i known he was going to go back,i don't bet

BW,i'm not saying it was a good ride,as much as i'm saying it wasn't a bad ride,with what he was told to do,if it got beat it would've been a certainty beat,but more to the cards he was dealt than pilot error,and i say that because of his riding instructions,had he drawn inside gate 8,and went all the way back,that would've been a bad move

No judgey watch the reply mate...now he jumps ok...stanton who was little slow away ..and drawn couple inside him..drives through to go the lead right...now the horse Piece of the sky whos got gate 16...which brereton was on the back of soon after jumping...now goes around em to sit 2nd...which he should of followed him up and easing him in which would of got him running about 6th .1 horse off the fence....but he takes the punt after snagging him back ..and naturally he going to come to the outside ..as the horse is pulling his head off 600 out...good horse low ride... ;)

sporty,you rode,you can't overcome every obstacle in every race,theres never a race run where every horse gets the run of the race.
and if the trainer said he left the decisions upto brereton,then i would say definitely,it was a bad ride

It was left flat-footed which gave the impression it was gone, but it wasn't, it needed time to warm up, and when it did and was full of running, he should have sent it to the middle of the track for some galloping room rather than ducking in behind the one in front of him.
If it was a Group 1, it wins, that's the way Boss is, simple

If you think Maxisun was unlucky (And I do not Doubt he was, seems to be part of his makeup)have a look at how quiet Craig Williams was sitting on Ortensia, she had a very soft win with the Big one only a week away, do not know if she would have given a lot more in the conditions but I am sure there was quite a few lengths up Craigs sleeve, given a good track next week I want to be on her
 Maxisun will never beat her if he couldn't do it today, she has the ability to be unlucky and overcome it, Maxisun is not able to extricate himself and sprint off the mark like she can, she was also ridden up on the speed today, not her usual pattern, She will be competing in all the big Group Ones in the Spring
Without doubt the best horse won

Bangalow, nothing personal but I never really criticize ordinary Jockeys for ordinary rides, If I back a substandard Jock(and I Often do much to my chagrin)and get a substandard ride, I blame my self not the Jockey, it was predictable before the race that the risk was high of an ordinary ride, so I tell myself that I got what I deserved, learn from it is all you can do,

Napes why?? he won didn't he?? he could see the others coming, he could see the winning post, no point in winning and wasting her for next week which an extra length may have done, great ride great Judgment, but that is what you expect from Craig Williams and that is what you get

Then again I had $20 on a horse @ 1000 on BF one night and there was no-one on it.
It was a 3 horse chase and it fell early, was just hoping for one of those get back on board jobs and hoping the other pair came to grief as well   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

He started from a wide barrier, raced wide throughout, then couldn't decide which path to take through traffic in the straight. Possibly a victim of circumstances (maybe). Didn't seem well balanced in the straight. Jockey has been riding the horse with success, however.

He had every opportunity to pull to the outside of the eventual winner at the top of the straight but decided to try and duck back inside and navigate between traffic.

however i say make them have 50 odd trials at least, then 50 odd rides at Non Tab

All he had to do was ease it around the heels of the one in front of him, instead he reefed if 4 horses back toward the inside into traffic on a worse part of the track.

After 3 races at Sandown (Betfair Park) it's evident the fence is a no-go zone.
In the first 3 races, Craig Williams has finished 3rd, 1st, 2nd and tracked a course down the middle of the track on all 3.
In the 4th, he started from gate 12 over a mile and cut the corner hard up on the rail and got bogged down, while the rest of the field raced along the same part of the straight as he had in the first 3 races.

It did miss the start by 3, so saving ground down the side is fair enough...

What I don't get is that having snuck through quietly along the rails to be near the lead at the turn, why doesn't he come off the rail down the 450m straight?  Those winning 3 must have been 5-7 horses off the rail?  Why doesn't Williams allow it to drift to the middle in the straight?

I'm sure he would come back and say he was unlucky but to a punter talking through his kick it was 'ordinary' to say the least ............... missed the kicked, charged up then onto heals so the horse throws it's head around, once straightening go back inside and finds plenty of rump, once clear flashes home onto the placegetters heals.

Victim of circumstances, that's all it was.
Went for the run inside the leader because there wasn't one outside it, leader hung back in and chopped him out, then tried to go between two leaders and the horse three deep hung in and chopped him out.
Back to the inside, the run came too late.

As I said before, if Cassidy was half as smart as he thought he was it would be OK.

She rode it that day and I thought shit, must be a good horse, and although she had won on it, she musn't have ridden it too well as she got dropped for apprentice H Singh today   :lol:

After 400 (1400) probably 7th or 8th, takes off and goes 4 and 5 wide around the field and keep going to sit outside the leader, and keeps gassing it to and around the turn, and surprise surprise pops like a burst balloon as they straighten up. NFI.

Ganderton inquiry to resume Tuesday
Brad Waters
Monday, 4 January 2010

Queensland Racing stewards have opened an inquiry into apprentice Daniel Ganderton’s handling of classy filly Deer Valley at Saturday’s Gold Coast meeting.

Deer Valley finished sixth after racing at the rear of the field for most of the Coast Tipper Hire Handicap (1200m) before having trouble getting a clear run in the straight.

Ganderton was hauled in by stewards who questioned the jockey on his lack of vigour between the 550 metres and the 350 metres as well as his decision to look for inside runs.

Chief steward Wade Birch adjourned the hearing to inspect betting information and review Deer Valley’s normal racing pattern ahead of the the inquiry resuming on Tuesday morning.

Deer Valley’s trainer Steele Ryan and Ganderton’s new master Paul Messara will also be in attendance on Tuesday.

He certainly has a case to answer for his lack of vigour approaching the straight.

I doubt they can do much about his dicision to ride for luck though ?

Post by: Bubbasmith on 2010-Jan-04, 07:31 PM
I note most of the posts on this subject generally "bag" losing rides. On watching Ashley Thompson win at Wangaratta today I have come to the conclusion he has a lot to learn. A couple of weeks ago I backed a horse he rode and I thought he could not use the whip. He won on a horse today that started at around evens in a seven horse field, was caught wide, lost a length around the turn but still won. I will be a little wary in backing his rides in future.

I agree Matt, was an ordinary ride but I doubt much will come from it.

We've already pointed out the muppet just needed to hook to the outside and have an uniterupted run, if she got beat so be it but to run into plenty of rump up the inside was plain idiotic  :shutup:

Any muppet who gets his horse 3 wide for the duration in a 5 horse field deserves to be hung. Needed it to run third to get tri x 100 and FF x 50. Wouldn't have paid much but I was after some small fish. Beaten at the 400m and then came back and nearly nabbed third on the line.

Having said that probably wasnt good enough to win, but the connections deserved a much better placing than 5th I would have thought.

No one has mentioned it so I will.  What in the world was Damien Oliver thinking on Nicconi?  Everyman and his dog knew that you needed to be off the fence about 3 or 4 horses so he perseveres with the inside run.  From the jump he should have been aiming to be at least 2 wide, yet he goes straight down to the rail and that's where he stays.

And as for Jake Noonan in the last at Terang, don't get me started. :rant:

My vote for dodgy ride this week goes to mark zahra on galloping hill in the last at kilmore on sun . He got into traffic and then tried to stop the horse even running 4th . Even when it got clear he just sat on it . The stewards report says it went to the line untested - yes , the jockey didnt even try to test it .

D Ganderton today on Golden Dive in the 3rd at Randwick.

Drawn wide sure, but responsible for an ugly, indecisive ride which saw the horse midfield 4 and 5 wide without cover in a field of 10. Ended up being beaten less than 2 lengths.

Winner was drawn wider, but was ridden a treat by Corey Brown. Got back, found cover and came over the top of them.

Ganderton may be apprenticed to P Messara, but Big Daddy owns the stables and just about every horse in them. He is not a patient man when it comes to jockeys. Wanted Williams off Miss Finland long before Hayes would agree to it.

Many more rides like the Blue Diamond debacle on Beneteau and today's travesty, and Daniel may find himself looking for a new master.

Steven Parnham on God Has Spoken in the 6th in Perth.

Only has one danger who is trailing you into the home bend, chooses to go wide instead of the hole that opened up through the field, goes into the corner in front of Brother Mak (who took the gap) and comes out 3 or so lengths behind after going wide  :what:

Noonan's done it again by the sounds of it on The Cosack at Wangaratta - sounded very similar to the Paint it Black ride, and another very small field (5).   He got beat a nose on The Cossack.

I actually love betting at the GC, form is usually quite true I find.
The only problem is you are dealing with the second string jockeys who make more mistakes than the city jocks.
As a punter you just have to cop it on the chin.

Stewards questioned jockey S. Katsidis and trainer's representative Mr T. Edmonds regarding the tactics adopted in the early stages on POINT PAIN, where the horse was restrained to a position at the rear of the field, which appeared in contrast to the tactics adopted on the horse at its most recent start. T. Edmonds advised that the instructions were to ride the horse back in the field today, which he stated were similar to the instructions issued regarding the horse's previous run. S. Katsidis confirmed these instructions and advised that after being eased at the start, the horse overraced in the early and middle stages. Stewards noted the explanation for future reference.

Was the worst ride of the day yestreday by a long way.
Stathi never gave the horse a chance at all.
Strangled him back to last when the horse clearly wanted to go forward.
Still had him under a hold when last on straightening :what:
How he thought he was going to make up that ground I don't know.
It seems as long as the foreman confirms instructions(even obvious losing ones) they can do what they want?

There is a gulf of diference between a Bad ride and a bad rider, they can all make mistakes and be victims of circumstance, to judge a bad ride also sometimes depends on the fitness of the horse, this is something that the Punter watching on TV or in a pub or TAB can not possibly know, some trainers have their horses to a fitness level that they need to be smothered up and wait till as late as possible and then they have a ping that can win the race for them, get exposed or make their run too earl and they are vulnerable, others Like Waterhouse have their horses bone and Muscle and need to be on the pace as they will usually keep going, it is no co-incidence that her horses are usually ridden on pace, she trains them that way, others like Bart, Guy Walter, Bobby Thomsen  train completely different and would not win the races Gai does if ridden similarly to how Gai's are ridden, and Vice versa, you have to know how you train them and have them ridden accordingly, not that one way is more efficien than the other, just the ride and the trining have to marry up!
Jockeys are completely different to Trainers in as much as their primary asset is instinct, they don't have time to think and plan once the race has started, when you have a dozen others out there with similar instincts the smallest error or hesitation can be exacerbated by your fellow Jocks closing off your options, that together with your instructions pre race makes life hard, especially when they know all the Granstand Jockeys are sitting in their loungeroom watching on their big screen TV's and ready to pounce on any mistake they make,
What I find strange is how many Punters criticise Jockeys but hardly any criticise trainers??

she would have to be one of the worst jocks in Australia I reckon

everything she rides sit out the back and wide and then from no-where she takes off 800m out and goes around them all

does she have a Plan B or is this the only way she knows how to ride ? same stuff done on General Mackjoch and all her Dads horses

I think all a punter ask is they get the simple things right, and anyone with a licence should be able to do that, there are about 10 top class jockey in Aus at the minute and the rest are a muddling bunch imo
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Jim Pike on 2010-Nov-05, 01:14 AM
Getting the simple things right isn't as easy as it seems, all the other riders are trying to stop you from getting the simple things right, that is what makes the best jockeys what they are, they get the simple things right, that is all the difference there is!!
Races are rarely one by a brilliant ride, being a jockey is about instincts, there isn't enough time to think about what to do next in a race, you have to anticipate, you know your horses strengths and the strengths of you opposition as well as weaknesses, then there are jockeys that are good Group One riders but are not as successful as they should be at the minor meetings because first they won't take chances and get suspended, second they are only there because of obligations, so sometimes at Country meetings you are just as well off backing the second tier riders as it is their bread and Butter, so you have to decide what you want from a rider and then is he capable of delivering it?? then accept that if he constantly lets you down then you really should think about your own judgement, I rarely complain about a ride because I rate jockeys and trainers according to what I expect from them, I do the same with trainers, I even look at Owners, few consider them important to the equation but I can assure you they are, trainers will use a poor owners horse as a chopping block on the track if he needs a galloping partner for a good horse owned by an important owner, it happens, not saying it is a regular occurrence but it happens, it all goes into a horses chances in a race, you need to know the motives behind the connections,
if you think a horse can win but don't like the Jockey or trainer then you don't bet unless you get considerable compensation for the added risk in a better price, it is a package you are backing not just a horse, if you overlook your gut feeling and you get the bad ride from a rider you didn't like in the first place whose fault is it??

Agreed, when you back a Jockey on a biased track you must be sure they are not having their first ride for the day, was it her first ride on the day?? the reason is they are early risers and they will be asleep waiting for their first ride and don't watch the other races!
 Just seen Michelle Payne get beaten on a Good thing at sale, not sure it was all her fault though, Chapparo, missed a place and should have won easy, everywhere she went she was held up, trouble was she waited until in the straight to try to get out, she should have used centrifical forces to get out on the turn

Well Jimmy, that is a terrible ride - she was on the good thing, should have been looking for runs a lot earlier - you ride em like they're good things, not like they're not much hope and the only way they can get near em is by saving maximum ground and having cover for the maximum amount of time.

Dye - Veandercross

I think Blake Shinn on Viewed can thank his lucky stars. He went too early but got lucky....so....legendary ride. 3202 metres and he is a dead set mug. Happy to be pulled apart for that comment. What say you???
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Jim Pike on 2010-Nov-05, 11:40 PM
I am one of the only 2 people who think Veandercross was well ridden on the day, as you say with Blake Shinn if the CC had been 2399metres Raymond Shane is a genius, he had neumerous goes at 2400 and above, none were in a race as strong as that one and that was as close as he ever got to victory, not sure he could have been ridden to victory that day no matter how he was ridden, the evidence is there both before and after he just couldn't sty 2400 strongly, I know he placed in a MC but that was because of the tremendous downpour an hour before the race, the 3 wet trackers in the race Subzero/Castletown and Veandercross were the placings all needing a heavy track to run well, Veandercross was an infinitely better horse than Subzero evidence again that The big V couldn't stay
 Getting back to Chapparo he was a good thing beaten, he lacks acceleration he needed an unimpeded run if she got the run when he first went for it he wins, when he did get out he couldn't accelerate in the short distance left, with hindsight she should have been getting out 600 from home, she got the run she needed to day at the horses last and won and expected the same run this time, It will win next time

With all the question marks over jockeys betting and in particular the leading Gold Coast jockey, I wonder if the stewards will investigate the trends on R6 at the Gold Coast yesterday?

The ride by Dean Tanti on 3rd placed Reset And Go was either the worst ride of the day, or the best ride of the day  :chin:
Depends if you backed the winner or the moral beaten  :chin:

Thats an interesting one, I have just watched it now and he never really looked like winning until the last 50 metres. I am not sure you could crucify Tanti, the horse was not good enough to go past Geneva Gold when there was plenty of room and than all of a sudden when the others are stopping he was stuck with nowhere to go.

Have a look at the gap between Geneva Gold and Miss Carnell, there was plenty of room and the horse was not going good enough to take it, than all of a sudden the first two are stopping and he is stuck with no room to move. I think he is a fair dinkum victim of circumstance.

Race 6: EMF Griffith Fillies and Mares Class 1 H'cap - 1400m
1st - Elle Majesty 2nd - Geneva Gold 3rd - Reset and Go 4th - Miss Carnell

CHINSKY (K Forrester) began awkwardly and shifted in making contact with MISS CARNELL (G Lynch).

SMART OF COURSE (K Banks) raced wide throughout the event.

AUSSIE GAL (D Barron) tired badly over the last 500m of the event.

RESET AND GO (D Tanti) was disappointed for a run leaving the 50m between ELLE MAJESTY (D Griffin) and GENEVA GOLD (App. T Harrison) which resulted in RESET AND GO being unable to obtain clear running to the finish.

A post-race veterinary examination of GABARLIS GIRL (App B Looker) which tired to finish at the rear of the field revealed the mare to have sustained a laceration to its near hind leg as a result of being galloped on.

It appeared to me he had two runs presented to him and both times he shifted away from them  :chin:
I thought it was much further than 50m out he looked the winner.
Would you agree or disagree if he pulls him out into clear running(which was there) at the 150m he runs down the plunge horse and wins?

To me, and I am happy for others to disagree, he never looked like winning until the first two stopped, He was not, in my opinion, going well enough to take the gap between Geneva Gold and Miss Carnell from the 250-100m marks.

Maybe he should have gone to the inside of the eventual winner, but really I never thought he was going to win until the first two stopped.

Post by: Jim Pike on 2010-Nov-22, 01:09 AM
not saying it is the case here but when reading races you have to take into account the class of horse, what I mean is because a run presents and the horse for what ever reason seems to be labouring and unable to get through it is not because it has nothing to offer, it is because at this level they lack acceleration, then when they get wound up and the run closes they can look good things beaten which they may be but that is the horse and will happen more often than not, it is a fault with a lot of Jockeys, they ride all horses the same whether they are good horses or moderates, you have to make allowances and allow for their ability limitations, it can be difficult, they aren't good enough to go around them and alternatively when ridden for luck they need the run to come a fair way from home and stay open long enough for them to get through, very hard some times to ride a good race(a winning ride) you also have to remember that the Jockeys riding at the provincials/country on a Saturday are usually limited in ability as well so you cannot complain when you don't get  a Nash Rawiller/Cory Brown ride, if you want a Good ride only back Jockeys that are very consistent at the top, when I back an ordinary horse with an Ordinary Jockey and I get an ordinary run or an ordinary ride there is only one person I blame, Me!!

See what happens with all this talk of "hot"races and jocks betting accordingly does to the punter?

I have always been the first to defend the GC jocks in relation to the accusations, but that race got me thinking  :chin:
I wasn't the only one who saw it that way either, although we all backed it    :lol:  

I am still certain the horse should have won but for a bad ride, so I am happy to have put this up in the worst ride thread.
I apologise for possibly insinuating anything sinister.

Like you DJH , I bet on this race , I thought Geneva Gold was the value runner of the day at the Goldie (16/1+) ....whilst I was aware I was getting those odds due to the MsApprentice , I still walked away from the race feeling ill, and wishing she could have been stronger when the whips were cracking ! I wondered how far the horse would have won by with a stronger rider ? (would've been near favourite though!) ........ but at second glance , I can now see that your horse was also stiff (I was too busy screaming in my head "hit it , hit it" when I watched the race live to notice anything but Geneva Golds jockey!) ............ stewards footage will be interesting to watch to come to some conclusions about Reset and Go's run .... I will post it here tomorrow and make it accessible for 24 hours so you can have a closer inspection.

Thanks Shaftesbury, that would be much appreciated   emthup
 
It is certainly a cruel thing watching a horse you think can win get beaten by a ride which could have been better.
As we all know it is a part of punting and as you say is generally reflected in the odds we get.
Doesn't help at the time though.

I generally accept bad rides the same as I accept good rides(although not quite as well  ;) ), but occasionally they look "hot", and that gets to me at times.

As an extra, it was interesting to note that Griffin wore spurs on every horse he rode on Saturday.
I could count on 1 hand the number of times he has worn spurs in the last 3 years

Thanks Shaftesbury   emthup

Having watched that I admit he was just a victim of circumstance.
He seems to be pushing for a run towards the outside when the outside runner shifts in, forcing him to look for an inside run. As soon as he is committed to find an inside run, the outside horse shifts out abruptly presenting the run. At the same time the inside horses crowd closing any runs there also.
From the side on it appeared he was moving away from the runs but in fact they were just opening and closing at the wrong times

I apologise to Dean for putting this ride as the worst of the day.
It would go down as one of the unluckiest though

Thanks again for posting the video Shaftesbury   emthup

Backed from 10's to 4's, I was on at the best price. Draws wide so spends the first 600 of a 1,000 mtr sprint carving it up front with another leader. Capitulates to run nowhere. Might have been an interesting discussion when returning to the enclosure.

Talking through my kick but I thought Tim Clark put in a couple of shocking rides at Rosehill yesterday. I was there, so can only go on my "unbinoculared" view and haven't seen the replays. Drew wide on Mentality and was 4-5 wide for a long time whilst improving his position with a sizzling pace on up front. The winner, Altered boy (Bowman) at any old price drew outside Mentality and came from last to win  A couple of races later, again he drew wide on Let Them Have It. Wide for a good part of the early stages, he then decides to drop back as the pace slows up in front. Ticket was confetti after that. Will be on my barred list till he shows more nouse

Watching these races at Sandown, not betting incidently, but following this horse I backed last time Peck, and boy I'm glad I'm not punting coz it was something licked - C.Newitt do you intend at any point on making an effort to get to the outside and use that 10 mile long straight at Sandown??? Especially with this horse the way it won last start, rode Don Sebastian very similarly in the previous but it wouldn't have won regardless i'll concede.
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Authorized on 2010-Dec-22, 01:58 PM
Mate I backed Peck and I backed him with quite a deal of gusto and to be honest I had no problem with the ride.

How much ground would he have had to cover and or lose to get to the outside ?

It looked to my eye to have plenty of room.

The winner looked to be quite outstanding. So much so I think he deserves his own thread.

The way he won last time has a lot to do with me thoughts, as well as the ride in the previous, but also if he started looking a bit earlier instead of deciding as soon as they jumped that he was going to play for luck he would have finished a lottttt closer.

I tell ya, there's a couple of people around the traps, very few, but there are a couple, who defend this bloke saying he cops way too much... Now I will sometimes criticise a ride or two although I am particularly forgiving, however this bloody Mcevoy yeah he can ride but if you can find a senior city class jockey that sloughters more than him I'd like to know.

In fact on the basis of that and the position he holds in riding ranks, I'd go as far as to say he is the most overrated goin around.

There is a reason for it lets just say that.

Just seen one of the best rides you could ever wish to see, it came out last, snuk up along the rails past half the field, used centrifical force to get off the rails around the turn, pushed into the open and claimed the leaders and got the money, it would have been a great ride But............ the strange part was it lost it's jockey in the barriers!

What is centrifical force? - Yahoo! Answers

Toowoomba r6 no 4 Greys a Rockin - rider Ms B richardson.

This ride was so disgraceful she should be suspended for not giving the horse every chance.

Was in a nice trailing position and allowed the short priced favourite to lose 3  lengths at a crucial stage.
Then pulled to the outside and rocketed home to be a good thing beaten.

I fear Ms Richardsons future is as a trackwork rider

Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Jim Pike on 2011-Feb-26, 09:06 PM
Matt you are wrong the correct term isn't centripal force, centripetal force that keeps something on a circular path, I should have said centrifugal force which is an outward pseudo-force, in a reference frame that is rotating with respect to an inertial reference frame, which is equal and opposite to the centripetal force that must act on a particle stationary in the rotating frame.
The reaction force to a centripetal force.

The Bottom line is it is easier to push a horse out of the way that is keeping you in a pocket if you do it on the turn as it can't push back

As expected, after bagging Ms Richardson, she rode the winner of the next race.

The odds on favourite was reluctant to load and had BOTH ears twisted to get her to load!!!
They don't win!!!

The connections of the fav also wanted to ride her off the pace?

It didn't take a genius to work out there was something not right with the fav?

She blew dramatically in betting and ran accordingly.
Obviously there will  be no stewards inquiry into this as they are too busy looking at "nothing races"

This ride was so disgraceful she should be suspended for not giving the horse every chance.

Was in a nice trailing position and allowed the short priced favourite to lose 3  lengths at a crucial stage.
Then pulled to the outside and rocketed home to be a good thing beaten.

I fear Ms Richardsons future is as a trackwork rider



Yep, absolute slaughter.

Linda Meech there on La Praline, who goes in the blackbook as a horse with a bit of a future.

She definitely cost it the race - just sit off or cross - one or the other, (personally dont know what would have been wrong with letting that bolter go, seeing the way she won last time). The margin it went down by definitely cost it the race.

Ride was worse than I thought watching the replay - thing wants to run to the lead and the idiot is puller her head off from about the 900 til the 600, disgraceful piece of riding.

Even if the instructions may have been dont lead, I'm sure they wouldnt have told her to restrain the shit out of her like that if she wanted to run, not like she was running out to a 6 length lead :wacko:

I think Moody is pretty adamant about how he wants his jockey to ride, you follow instructions without question and if you don't you damn well better win!! I think we criticise Jockeys a lot when they are just following instructions from Owners/Trainers, they can hardly defend themselves by saying I was given stupid instructions by that idiot who owns the horse can he? Top Jockeys can usetheir  initiative, second tier Jockeys don't have that option as they are only just hanging on to a good Job and can't risk it, in sayiong that I am not talking about any particular horse/ride as I wasn't watching the race that Meech apparently messed up
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Mark on 2011-Apr-04, 06:24 PM
Jim I dont care about any hypotheticals - that ride on La Praline was every bit as bad if not worse than Williams' on BP.
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Jim Pike on 2011-Apr-04, 07:32 PM
I am not justifying any rides, I never had a bet in the race and didn't take a lot of notice, from memory it led but was under a strong hold and was just beaten, right?? I just know Moody makes ALL the decisions and if he said don't lead and you make no attempt to follow his instructions you will be looking for another job,
That is not hypothetical,
to me anyone who backs a horse and disregards the negatives that don't fit into there scenario and then blames the Jockey/trainer/track condition, everything but themselves is kidding themselves, that is not to say Jockeys don't slaughter a horse but I only back certain Riders with confidence and then only if on the right horse at the right price, a Horse like La Praline with a second tier rider and a short price would only be backed by novices in my opinion
My point is everyone knew who was riding it well in advance, you know she isn't Glen Boss/Damian Oliver etc so to expect the same level of competence is just not fair is it?

About La Praline it looked to me like Meech had a look for the sit shortly after jumping when it wasn't there and she looked to get caught 3 wide she went forward the horse underneath her then kicked up and at that point she looks to decide to sit outside Royal bender rather than push on for the lead, that was her mistake to my eye there a point just before the bend where she is about 3/4s a length in front on Royal Bender she should have kicked up and crossed she waited too long ans lost the chnace to get the rails and it cost her the race.

Couldn't believe there was nothing in the stewards report about Ric Mcmanhon's ride on Figasarus

Not many Jockeys that have never missed the start on one, the horse in the last did absolutely nothing after that, me thinks the horse didn't want to be there on Saturday and there wasn't much Oliver could have done to get it into the placings, missed the start by 4 and beaten 10?? as For Upbeat what should he have done on it? How would you have ridden it bgm? if he gets a run(like Linda Meech did in a later race) he would have looked a genius, ain't his fault the run wasn't there, may be he should have just jumped in front and went faster than all the rest, that would solve the problem wouldn't it?

Callum what exactly did Oliver do wrong on Upbeat apart from get beaten? not sticking up for him but he was behind a wall of horses and no run was there, sure it should have nearly won but I would be more inclined to blame the Goat track than the Jockey, very similar ride by Meech on Midsummer Music but she got the run that he didn't, if it wasn't for the winner his ride was infinitely better than Meech, she relied on Luck, if she doesn't get it she runs 8th, he did get his out without relying on luck and at any other track he probably wins, he just isn't getting the rides he once was, nothing wrong with his riding, probably doesn't work as hard to get the rides as he might but the ones he gets gives them every chance 99% of the time
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: callumjack on 2011-Jun-22, 09:55 PM
once upon a time he would have had it 1 1 or 3 pairs back,turned right at the 500, game over. He gave that horse none, simple. That horse was actually first out , then oli fell asleep and found himself last and got clear with 100m to go.Yeah I guess thats a satisfactory ride for supposedly one of our great hoops.
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Jim Pike on 2011-Jun-23, 12:41 AM
he found himself just behind the leading pack not last, Newitt had the speed was agressive in leading and stacked them up, they packed around Oliver he had very little choice but to go back to last to try to get to the outside, take the winner out, he wins and it was a great ride, if he stays where he was he would have had very little chance of getting out and would have run 8th, think it was circumstances and the track that worked against him and the horse, to say he would have been in the 1/1 or 3 pairs back is a hell of an assumption  :lol:  why not say he would have led by 6 and just kept improving his position!

You are entitled to your opinion, everyone is entitled to be wrong  :lol:   :lol:  What very few people don't realise it is whether the horse thinks they can ride that is important, not what the punter thinks, horses like her and they run for her that is what is important, she should have won yesterday and it wasn't her fault that she was beaten, even at it's last start that you say it should have won by 3 with anyone else on it it would have been beaten, she had to weave her way through and push others out of the way to get the winning run, there were a few others in that race that didn't get out and were unlucky, the difference is she got out where the others didn't, there was no luck involved in getting the splits she got that day she went looking for them and when they weren't there she made them, it was a brilliant ride that got her home, he only other option was to pull back to last and go around them at Mooney Valley, she would have run 10th, she had to find a way through the middle and she did :thumbsup:

Yes, I believe Callow was just going through the motions type of ride ie nice hit out third up over 2200m. No way could the stewards pin him down with no hard evidence at their disposal. Re Langridge Street  though I think Currie didn't feel happy to take off so far from home as the grey horse did so as to conserve it to ensure it would get the distance with 58kg - as a result of his decision he got clutered up and blocked - thought it was  one of those things when a win just wasn't meant to be. Just my thoughts for what they are worth.

Monday 3rd October Race 5 Adelaide. Thought the ride from Nathan Rose on the favourite Tabulated was questionable. Sitting in the box seat in a six horse field outside eventual winner ( DavidHayes horse- Master Beckett)- the pace slackens at the 1000m and for some reason he jags it back to the tail and  three wide to boot???? (even the commentator was taken by surprise at this point). Master Beckett gets off the fence and makes it's move - Rose sees this and takes off in chase making the turn wide - levels up in straight but eventually outgunned in a tug of war battle. Look forward to see if anything mentioned in the stewards report (not available as yet) - but if you backed it I believe you were dudded by an ill judged disgraceful ride.

CW rode a very good race on SS but God had a shocker.

I was wondering before the cup if he was fit as he was blowing and hardly able to breathe after 2 great rides.

Then the Cup and I laughed as I thought he couldn't hold the horse seemed to be suicide to lead.

Not talking through my pocket as I was on GM and LC.

I am not normally a McDonald fan but that was a brilliant ride, the kid made a decision and I applaud him for it, the result should not determine the quality of the ride, take one horse out he wins and it was brilliant, he saw the fav in trouble and obviously didn't know how long he would be held up or how fast he would sprint when he did get out so he decided to say Catch me if you can and try to pinch it, (Dye did a similar thing on Octagonal in the Chipping Norton if he had been caught by Juggler he would have copped the Veandercross crap over again from all the "Riders in the stand") same for Veandercross just imagine there was no Mannerism?? would there have been such a fuss about it for the next 20 years if Mannerism hadn't existed?? I think not, he would have been given a heroes welcome back to scale!! Freedman was winning everything back then too(I think he is still the only trainer in history to win the "big 4" all in the one year, the amazing thing about the feat was he did it with 4 different horses!! )
But I digress, I love riders who make decisions, no one gets it right all the time

From the stewards report

D Nikolic (Amah Rock) was questioned regarding the tactics adopted on the gelding in the straight, in particular his lack of vigour from the 400 metres to the 200 metres.  D Nikolic explained that it was a pre race plan with the connections to endeavour to wait as long as possible in the straight given the gelding was stepping up to 1400 metres and when he put his mount under pressure approaching the clock tower (150 metres)  his mount failed to respond to his riding.   D Nikolic added that Amah Rock was immature and would be a better horse next time in work.

Oh Danny. Why would you ride the horse 5-6 deep the entire bend if you had queries over the distance? Imagine the speculation if Amah was a 2-1 chance.
I have some respect for Danny, he has worked his arse to try and get back in the game and get some decent rides, but gee, it is rides like this one which remind me why I shouldn't back him in the first place.

A perfect example of a jockey not having confidence in a horse in the task at hand.

Stewards thought the Nuptse ride lacked initiative.

No mention of Woorim in a lengthy report by stipes.

To me he's one of those horses. If the breaks go his way, he can be devastating. If they don't, he's unlucky. Sometimes he's absolutely horrible.

I thought Rodd's ride was about as good as Corey Brown's in the Stradbroke or D J Browne's in the BRC Sprint. The breaks didn't go Brown's way. They did go Browne's way.

Regardless of one's opinion as to the impact of the incident, it certainly should have been mentioned.

But I guess they are tired after a long week.

G. Colless on Nuptse in the listed fillies and mares race at Eagle Farm.

The horse is a renowned backmarker with a booming finish.

Drawn near the outside, instead of doing the obvious and going back to get cover and allow her to finish off, Colless heeled Nuptse out of the machines and had her 3 wide without cover outside the lead. Not surprisingly, Nuptse weakened out of the race in the last 200m.

Is a winning ride eligible for this thread?

If so, I thought Munce's ride on Kar Ma Te was ordinary and he could have been caught red-faced easily enough but he got the breaks.

Why I was it was an ordinary ride was because the horse had a lap on the field, the best option would have been to come wide and stroll in without giving punters a minor stroke at the top of the straight.

More 4 kg claimer stuff from Colless today on short priced favourties Snipzu and Skating on Ice.

Sure they were drawn awkwardly, but both rides were terribly indecisive, and he ended up high, wide and handsome on both.

Those watching might be forgiven for thinking he was giving it a run. Drawn beautifully, he allowed it to get too far out of his ground and then appeared to ride it into dead ends instead of clear running in the straight.

Having slaughtered the horse last start, getting caught 3 and 4 deep without cover, DJB may well find himself replaced next time out.

They went too hard but it wasn't entirely the jocks fault.

Gauci's mount had the blinkers back on and wouldn't come back underneath him. Rodd's horse was coming off a 6 lengths win where it led so I expect the instructions were to lead again.

Both were up in class and wouldn't have got near the better horses in any case.

If they ask him questions, then Matheson in the first should have the same questions asked, let the winner out at the 600, then made no effort to get into the race until well into the straight.  I know it's Warrior Within, but he should never have let the winner get away.

Stewards did ask the question of Matheson

Stewards questioned apprentice K. Matheson regarding his riding of WARRIOR WITHIN between the 600m and 400m where BELL ACADEMY was able to move away from the rail ahead of him to improve into the race. Apprentice Matheson stated that the gelding never travelled comfortably on the slow track, however did acknowledge at that stage of the race he would have been better served to hold a more prominent trailing position behind RACING HEART which would have kept BELL ACADEMY on its inside. Trainer B. Hill stated that WARRIOR WITHIN is a somewhat difficult horse to ride and has shown on previous occasions to lose concentration at stages during races. Stewards were of the view that apprentice Matheson may have erred in not holding a position on WARRIOR WITHIN trailing RACING HEART but did not believe that the error to be culpable under the rules

Plenty of discussion on Retro about Schofield's ride on the favourite in the opener at WF yesterday.

Others may wish to interpret the ride in another way.

4kg apprentice couldn't have ridden it any worse.

From my experience, successful punters are able to distinguish between a bad ride and an unlucky ride.

Eurell said on radio he was disappointed in the draw (again) and that he'd like to go forward hoping something would put speed on and she'd find a gap.

Boss went out with that in mind, I'd say.  It didn't come off.

That doesn't mean it was a bad ride.

I agree with you DJH .......quite incredible this horse, eligible for much lower provincial class, was ridden like this....based on the official times I worked out it ran the first 600m in around 34.75....and when questioned the stewards accepted the apprentice rider's explanation.........a poorly judged ride......and an ineffectual response by the watchers looking after everyone's interests. :chair:

Well yes, Ms Harrison didn't earn points for the ride.  And it certainly changed the race, and gave the horses I backed NIL hope.

However, Stewards saw no reason to issue a penalty.  I agree with them

Apprentice T. Harrison advised that she was instructed to ride ERVBEFEL in a forward position and accordingly she rode aggressively in the early stages on the mare. She added that ERVBEFEL, after reaching the lead, raced ungenerously and refused to settle through the middle stages despite her efforts. The explanation was noted.

Of course the horse was way out of its Class.  But that's no reason to bar it from starting.   :no:  That seems to be an issue for a lot of horses I've backed lately.  :shutup:

Anyone who wagered on the heavily backed favourite in the 2nd in Melbourne today would be scratching their heads.

This is the stewards report:

Race 2 – CITY JEEP HANDICAP - 1600 metres:

La Pepper, which was slow to begin, was then inconvenienced by Under The Leaner which jumped away awkwardly and shifted in.

Medvedev jumped away awkwardly, shifted out and hampered Quick Snitzel.

Landale was slow to begin.

Under The Leaner, which was over-racing in the early and middle stages, had to be eased to avoid the heels of Here The Rhythm approaching the 1200m.  As a result of this Quick Snitzel, which was following, had to be eased.

Shortly after this Under The Leaner continued to over-race

In the middle stages Landale over-raced.

Rounding the home turn and until near the 150m Under The Leaner was unable to obtain a clear run.

In the early part of the straight Medvedev was momentarily unable to obtain a clear run and then over the concluding stages was again unable to obtain clear running and went to the line untested.

L Nolen explained that Medvedev is a one paced horse and when the pace quickened near the 300m he was caught flat footed.  L Nolen added that after being momentarily held up on the home turn he lost some momentum however over the concluding stages Medvedev went to the line untested.  L Nolen further added that the gelding is not suited to Moonee Valley.


N Hall, rider of Landale which raced further back than at its most recent start, explained he was instructed to settle the gelding however after being slow away he found himself further back than anticipated.

The track was upgraded from Dead 4 to Good 3 at 1.38pm after the running of this race.

a) I don't think it began awkwardly at all. Seemed to be running pretty straight and not far off the lead
b) Doesn't like Moonee Valley? Perhaps Medvedev would prefer the cushion at Toowoomba - has anyone asked him? Not impressed with the jocks explanation. Hides a very poorly judged ride IMHO.

Stewart on mishani persuader and harrison on platinum state were both very poor rides in brissy

There were excuses for Platinum State Wily as the stewards report discloses...no jockey error IMO.

 Race 8: Sita Australia Class 6 Plate - 1350m
1st - Someday 2nd - Sons Of God 3rd - Double Impact 4th - Mr Orient

The barrier gates of SOMEDAY were slow to open, which resulted in SOMEDAY losing ground at the start.

PLATINUM STATE knuckled at the start and lost ground.



PLATINUM STATE (T. Harrison) and VIKING HEART (G. Colless) overraced in the early stages.


A post race veterinary examination of PLATINUM STATE revealed the horse to be suffering from mild heat stress.

G. Colless, rider of VIKING HEART, was found guilty of a charge of careless riding, in that near the 250m he permitted his mount to shift out when not sufficiently clear of DIVINE CITY, resulting in DIVINE CITY being taken across the rightful running of PLATINUM STATE, and T. Harrison having to check that horse when tightened for room between DIVINE CITY and BINGO ROSE (J. Taylor). G. Colless was suspended from riding in races for a period covered by 6 meetings, to commence at midnight 2 January, and to expire at midnight, 11 January. When assessing penalty, stewards acknowledged that prior to VIKING HEART shifting out, PLATINUM STATE had made contact with the hind quarters of DIVINE CITY.

Thanks arsenal :beer: my beef with the ride is she had ample opportunity to ease to the outside around the turn and wind up, instead she went looking for a  miracle run through the centre and got held up before finally getting out wide. A common error with jocks

not such a bad ride by Larry but he was out ridden by the two jocks who kept him in a pocket
but Larry should have seen that coming and got out at the turn  :/
only watched it live (on the tv )
and would like to watch a replay
actually i think they should show that ride to apprentices
and show them "this is how to get an odds on pop rolled "

In a  5 horse race R6 at Gigandra Sunday Hewentwoosh was a nice slaughter....the apprentice Ms. H Martin went for runs where there wasn't one  the horse was continually held up when there looked to be enough room close to the fence to drive a truck through but she was caught behind the 4 in front.

Race 6: Benchmark 75 Handicap 1100m:
Trainer Mr. B. Thompson was fined $50 (AR140B(2)) for the late application to
remove the blinkers from Hewentwhoosh. Hewentwhoosh was held up for clear
running rounding the home turn. On straightening, Hewentwhoosh was steadied
when disappointed for a narrow run between Sugera and Dragon’s Keep. As a
consequence Hewentwhoosh became held up on the heels of Dragon’s Keep for
the remainder of the event and went to the line unable to be fully tested. Dragon’s
Keep laid out under pressure in the straight.

Chris Whitely on Cover Up in R8 at EF was a poor effort...in the box seat before the turn tried to go where there was insufficient room nearly fell and never a chance after that......I didn't have a bet either...stewards report excused him somewhat...but on a day riding against many inexperienced apprentices he didn't shine. :whistle:

COVER UP (C. Whiteley) was held up rounding the home turn and in the early stages of the home straight when unable to improve to the outside of ASTRAL AURA (J. Johnson) as a result of WILL BE AMAZED (A. Holt) being positioned directly to his outside. At the same stage, COVER UP as unable to improve to the inside of ASTRAL AURA as there was insufficient room to improve between ASTRAL AURA and TYCOON'S BEST (J. Stanley). However after leaving the 200m, COVER UP did attempt to improve to the inside of ASTRAL AURA where there was a narrow run, however AUSTRAL AURA then shifted in marginally, resulting in COVER UP being unable to obtain that run, and when being restrained shifted in and made heavy contact with TYCOON'S BEST, which had to be checked as a consequence. At a subsequent inquiry, stewards could not apportion blame to any one rider and as a result no further action was taken.

Stewards questioned apprentice T. Harrison regarding the tactics adopted on FLYING HOME approaching and rounding the home turn, in particular why, when positioned towards the rear of the field, she maintained a racing line towards the inside rather than progress wide around THE CLANDY MAN CAN (P. Schmidt) when there appeared to be an opportunity to do so. Apprentice Harrison stated that approaching this point of the race there was an opportunity to the inside of THE CLANDY MAN CAN to improve, however approaching the 500m MUKADDAMAH SON (D. Browne) shifted out forward of her, eliminating this opportunity. T. Harrison added that she considered progressing wide around THE CLANDY MAN CAN at this stage, however she was mindful of the manner in which she had ridden the horse when it was successful two starts back, at which time the horse obtain clear running towards the inside and accelerated appreciably, and it was for this reason that she remained in a trailing position behind MUKADDAMAH SON until straightening. After considering apprentice Harrison's explanations, stewards informed her that in their opinion she had erred by failing to bring FLYING HOME to the outside of THE CLANDY MAN CAN passing the 500m when MUKADDAMAH SON shifted out forward of her, and by employing this option FLYING HOME would have enjoyed an uninterrupted run to the finish line.

An in form apprentice........bound to make mistakes occasionally......this was one she should remember......doesn't help if you were on it. >:(

Looking at replays of More Joyous yesty it's obvious that with luck in running she would have won...."Crash & Bash" was at it again trying to force a passage where there was insufficient room and was extremely lucky not to cause a serious accident or injury to the mare....probably a victim of circumstances in being where he was .......but not a good ride and  Streama did suffer an injury.  :shutup:

 "After being held in a pocket behind Spirit Song and inside Streama from the 800m, N
Rawiller, rider of More Joyous, attempted to improve between those two runners in the early
part of the straight, where there was not quite sufficient room. Passing the 300m, when Spirit
Song shifted out slightly whilst weakening, More Joyous, which was badly held up, had to be
severely checked when disappointed for the run between Spirit Song and Streama."

Post by: ACER on 2013-Apr-08, 08:22 AM
I can forgive him his ride on More Joyous coz he was no doubt following instructions to get off the fence asap and was a victim of circumstances. Now on the other hand his ride on Kellini was atrocious. It had a perfect spot and was travelling beautifully and then suddenly Nash makes the horse sprint for 1000m and it only compounds the last 100.
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: dubbledee on 2013-Apr-08, 09:55 AM
I haven't had many looks at the MJ ride, but wondering whether it was an unlucky ride of a bad ride.

As for KELLINI, IMO he was a victim of "the fence is no good" stupidity.  He should have stayed were he was rather than move out and circle the field.

Anyone see the horse fly along the fence in the last race?
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: ACER on 2013-Apr-08, 10:06 AM
I had no issue as to the course he tracked on Kellini, it was more that he thought he was on some wonderhorse who could sustain a sprint for 600m longer than all the others. All he had to do was wait until the appropriate time to let loose and the horse goes close to winning IMO.

I have a lot of problems with the way Sydney jockeys ride but in this case I don't see anything wrong  with  the ride on Kelinni. The horse had finished 4th in last year's Melbourne Cup and to my way of thinking was the best stayer . If the race was run the way most in Sydney are run Bowman on Fiveandahalfstar would have simply gone at the corner and won by 3 lengths.  Rawiller knows all about this tactic as that is what he has been doing for the Waterhouse stable ever since he came to Sydney.

Most Sydney races are gifted to the leader because there is usually no mid race pace . In this case the leader just managed to hang on because of Rawiller's ride on Kelinni.

The stewards did ask questions of Cahill

Stewards questioned M. Cahill with regard to the tactics he adopted on SOMEDAY. Of particular concern to stewards was the reason he relinquished his position outside the leader to DIADEME (B. Shinn) passing the 1100m which resulted in SOMEDAY being taken back through the field during the middle stages to ultimately be placed towards the rear of the field upon rounding the home turn. Jockey Cahill stated that he had been instructed to ride the horse in a forward position with cover and after reaching the lead approaching the 1200m he steadied SOMEDAY. M. Cahill added that he believed the ground on the fence to be inferior and leaving the 1200m he allowed CONSERVATORIUM (J. Bowditch) to improve to his inside in order to maintain a one-off position. Jockey Cahill said that when DIADEME progressed to his outside approaching the 1100m he felt that his best option was to take a trailing position behind DIADEME as he was of the view that it would hold a forward spot as its pattern of racing suggests. He added that following this several runners progressed to his outside, resulting in him being unable to move SOMEDAY from a trailing position behind DIADEME. Stewards informed jockey Cahill that the decision to allow DIADEME to cross his running at the 1100m proved to be the wrong decision, but in the circumstances stewards believed it to be a reasonable decision and therefore his riding did not breach any rules of racing. A post-race veterinary examination of SOMEDAY revealed the gelding to have lacerations to the outside heel and cannon of the near hind leg, consistent with being galloped on.

Brain dead efforts by both Cahill and Alisha Taylor in that race. They were on the only 2 in the market and carved each other up. No surprise to see a roughie blow them away late.

Taylor a least has the excuse that she doesn't masquerade as a top jockey.

I would have to completely agree with mullerbeck.  But I also think it was a bad call on the connections part to take the horse to Sydney. The horse has done this before in its first start and although last start in his win he did not do it he did not come off the bridle. Horse needed a strong left handed whip rider to say the least and that Mcgurran is not. In saying all this the horse goes proper.

but anytime a horse is going to the 3200m a first time you dont ride out of its comfort zone!!!

A lot of horses having their first start over 3200m do so in the Melbourne Cup.

So you are saying that backmarkers should drop out to a long last like Fawkner did, just so that they are in their "comfort zone" and thereby ruining any chance they have of winning the race? (I've only seen one horse come from where Fawkner was to win the Cup in 40 odd years). He was last, two lengths behind the second last horse at the 1000m mark.

I stand by my comments. Stupid tactics if the objective was to win the race, and one which threw away the advantage of drawing a good barrier.

if he pushes forward and sits on the speed it dosnt run the trip

We are not saying he should push on and sit on the speed. Just a bit more forward in the back half might have been sufficient. Shades of Darren Beadman on Lonhro. If he doesn't run the trip then he doesn't run the trip.

To see the horse circle the entire field and then pass every horse except the first five...well who wouldn't ask questions about that tactic.

P Pen answered you perfectly.

One question though. At the 1000m mark of the Caulfield Cup, how far off the lead do you reckon he was? One things for sure, he was comfortable.
There was zero reason for him to be so far back yesterday, zero

B Shinn in the 4th at Gosford today, on the toppy Loophole 59kg.

Trained by C Waller. He'll be pleased too, I'd imagine ... not!
Connections must have backed it too.
$2.60 fav ... and close on the best rated runner in the field.

I could have gotten a rocking horse home faster than that ride.

At the 450 he was last. Now I know this is Gosford with the long back straight, and from the 1600 start, it is 250 to the first bend.
He had barrier 4 in a field of 9 FFS! has won over the mile before, so no issues with that.
Even if he stuffed the start, he just had to cruise to the first bend, and then there was a 600m straight to position for the sharp turn into the home straight.

No excuses for that dismal ride. Shinn just went to sleep and failed to position the horse to advantage in the race.
Just my assessment of what happened.

EDIT: Winner ridden by P. Robl at $6.00. Barrier 3 and  54kg, so I suppose giving away 5kg over 1600m might tell on the horse.
But he was gone at the 1000 for all intents.

Typically PR finishes from a long way back ... like a train. She's another Bernborough!

But at the turn she would need to have been KIWI in the '83 Melb Cup to win from where Hammersley had her!  :rant:

The caller called the second last horse (Johnny's Dream) "15 lengths off the lead, and behind him PR."

Shakes me head. Travolta set the pace, but maintained a steady margin in the lead - the pace was not that fast.
When asked for effort, PR rattled home for 4th. She should have placed ... or won.

I'm crying through my pocket of course - had PR @ $3.50 the drum.   :sad:

Why no questions asked by stewards about the apparent change in tactics on Maroon Bay in the 1st in Melbourne?

Last start winner when flying around the Valley in the lead. She is a speed filly. Boss said post race last start that Hawkes had instructed him just to let her run and she wouldn't be beaten (despite the presence of the 2/5 favourite, West Africa).

He did and she wasn't.

Today she jumped in front but instead of letting her run, Boss wrestled her back in the field to race 3 wide with no cover. She was then no hope from about 100m after the start.

The stipes reported that she laid out, which happened.

They reported that she was held up for clear rounding the turn and early in the straight, which didn't happen.

And they apparently didn't notice that, for the first time in her career, she didn't lead, even though she jumped in front.

I dunno what race they were watching, but it sure wasn't race 1 at Caulfield.

Hard to say - you be the judge:

Track Condition: Good 3
Time: 1:23.38
Last 600m: 0:34.48
Record:Exceed And Excel 1:21:20

That's about 12 lengths outside that record.
But even so, the time was pretty slick today.
Pillar of Creation ran 1:24:26
over the same distance and track conditions at Caulfield on 4th January.

I didn't hear/see the race - only have the times.

But you could be right, given the final 600 sectional.
The first 600 would look like a dawdle.

That would make D. Oliver look a bit of a dill ... getting nailed on the fav by 3L
And D. Weir mightn't be too happy either.

Still ... you can't fault winning form, and SD definitely was the class act of the race.

Oliver had every opportunity to hold his position and chose to get on the back of a derby winner resuming. hence he got shuffled back out of his ground and showed zero urgency in making a move despite the leader getting away with murder.

Still shaking my head over Munce's ride on the heavily backed Anymore yesterday.
Went back and looked at the replay again this morning in case I was letting emotion cloud my view yesterday.
Nope! It was an incredibly bad ride.
Missed the start.
Then sooled her up into the arse of a horse in front and then restrained her heavily several times during the run, then did not take the opportunity to pull her into the open when he had the chance in the straight.
The horse crossed the line 4th last, under restraint, never having been tested.
She could have gone round again in the next race.

Stewards report reveals a distinct lack of rigour on the part of the stewards:
"When asked to comment on the performance of ANYMORE, C. Munce reported that after receiving minor interference at the 800m the mare had difficulty securing clear running in the home straight, and this, in his opinion, had a detrimental effect on the overall performance."

Hard to work out how a jockey with his obvious skills and experience could put in a ride like that.

I see your point Whispering.

There are jockeys I believe give it their best every time.
Then there are jockeys "riding under instructions."

Only the "instructions they ride under" aren't always the ones issued by their owners and trainers.

Imagine you are the owner of ANYMORE.
Right about now you'd like to give the jockey a sling ... on the right arm!

I didn't follow the race, but for Lert to point out the above says to me that the ride was not "to instructions."

If it was, then my response be-on-me-next-time would be the way to go.
ANYMORE started at $4.40 (fixed). Expect a better price next time is all I am saying.

Only next time give a jockey like Harrison, Browne, Wiggins or Allen a go.
These are jockeys whose record is important to them ... but more importantly, their results are important to connections.

This is probably the second reason I am not an owner.

Watch the race again and you have to what was Derbyshire doing on Legazpi too? Could have gone on the inside and got an easy run as everyone was in the middle but decided to try to go for a miracle run twice in the middle.
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Noodle on 2014-Feb-09, 06:45 PM
This is laughable:

From the Stewards report

Stewards questioned apprentice A. Allen regarding his riding of UNIQUE MISTIQUE in the home straight. Of concern was his reasons for attempting to secure clear running between PICTURE IT and HAZY HUNTER (A. Butler) after leaving the 300m when there appeared an opportunity for him to shift out around PICTURE IT which would have afforded him uninterrupted running for the remainder of the event. Apprentice Allen indicated that at that point he was presented with a run between those horses where he felt there was sufficient racing room, however near the 100m both PICTURE IT and HAZY HUNTER shifted ground under pressure, causing that run to be reduced, and he was obliged to steady at that point and alter course to the outside. After reviewing the footage at that point of the race, stewards were satisfied that there was sufficient racing room for apprentice Allen to endeavour to secure a run after leaving the 300m and noted his explanation.

If you can get away with this then there is no need for stewards. Absolutely disgraceful. All Mr Allen had to do was move to the outside but he kept pushing in for some unknown reason. Surely this decision has to be reviewed!

Is there a chance Bowman can get done for cruelty to an animal for his ride on Lonace? The poor horse will probably never race again.

For a rider who is not usually aggressive from the barrier it sure was a corker trying to make it sprint full pelt from an outside barrier for the whole race. It looked a perfect race to take a sit which is what Hugh usually does.

Yes, I know the horse was injured but it was simply an appalling ride.

Some of those jockeys at Caulfield yesterday should be hanging their heads in shame.

In spite of the Race 7 winner Onpicalo coming along the fence, Brad Rawiller felt obliged to race the heavily backed Le Mans 5, 6 and 7 deep for the entire race in Race 8. Meanwhile the winner Bring Back came right up along the fence like the previous winner. Le Mans wasn't beaten that far either. Dreadful option taken - don't know if it was him or the trainer that was responsible.

From the Albury Stewards Report for 12 May 2014.  No mention in the report of his ride in race 7.

 
RACE 2: 3yo Country Plate 1400m:
Frisky Cruiser which began awkwardly, got its head up while racing keenly in the early and
middle stages. Marchello proved difficult to settle in the early stages. After taking initial evidence
from rider K. Sweeney and trainer C. Heywood, an inquiry into the handling of Asunder was
adjourned to a date to be fixed. A post-race veterinary examination of Asunder did not detect
any abnormalities.

D Dunn (Onpicalo) was questioned as to why he didn’t continue to ride his mount out to the end of the race with the whip.  D Dunn explained that his mount was hanging in and when it was continuing to shift ground he felt he was duty bound, as required under the rules, to stop riding and straighten his mount as it had the potential to cause interference to Mighty Like which was racing to his inside.  The Stewards, having the benefit of viewing the head on film of the incident, were satisfied that Onpicalo was hanging in to the degree that warranted D Dunn’s subsequent actions and therefore accepted his explanation.

A quote from Les Carlyon from his appraisal of Mick Dittman's ride on Sydeston in the 1990 Caulfield Cup seems apt...

"If it were another jockey, you might have worried about how he would get out. You don't worry too much about those things with Dittman. Pockets are for losers."

In this case though, Oliver is a definite loser with the joke of a ride on Spillway... never gave the horse any chance to get out. It was chomping at the bit to climb over the back of the wall of horses in front.

But then Mick was The Enforcer and Oliver is 'Ollie', the crim.

I'm not sure that is right about him being over rated - he has ridden 26 Group 1 wins.

However having said that,  he sure hasn't been riding anywhere near as good as he was a few years ago.

Let's watch his ride on Rich Enuff on Saturday with interest.

Yeah apparently the owners were pretty pissed off with the effort on saturday.

Fair point about him having 26 group 1's, no mean feat. But i think in some cases the outstanding horses he was on got him the wins in those group 1's more so than his riding ability.

E.g Atlantic Jewel winss, and in more recent times the Spirit of Boom wins.

His in race tatics and decision making seemed to waned in recent years

Geez, D. Browne's ride on Sari at the Gold Coast was interesting. Looked like an apprentice too scared to take a gap.


Not sure how well the nag was going after being scrubbed the whole way but agree that he certainly didn't use much vigour as the horse seemed to pick up

Thats the thing, he had him in the spot he was supposed to be in. But then didn't move off the fence to angle for a run, stay on the fence and run up the back of others then attempt to go to a gap that was already half taken by another horse...

It is now there under the race meeting.

No mention of the end of the race but Walker was suspended from 18th to 26th October for careless

riding in the last 200m of the race.

Arctic Song - rider Michael Walker pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under the provisions of AR137(a), the careless riding being that he permitted his mount to shift ground inwards whilst riding it along, resulting in By The Grace shifting across the rightful running of Kings Dance resulting in Kings Dance being checked near the 50m. Michael Walker had his licence to ride in races suspended for a period to commence at midnight October 18th and to expire at midnight October 26th, a total of nine race meetings (two metropolitan, seven provincial). In assessing penalty Stewards took into account Michael Walkers guilty plea and good record, the races he will be missing and that the interference was in the mid-range.

Problem is why if you are running last do you stay on the fence and try to go inside? If she had started going wide around the second last horse just before the top of the straight she still would have won, and won easily.

After watching the replay mate I must say I can't agree. Approaching the turn the whole field moves off the fence by 3 horses. the mistake she made was going out there with them. There was a saloon passage along the rail and she wouldn't have had to go around a horse. she would have been in the spot the winner took when he cut back inside.
The biggest mistake these jocks make is not riding what they see instead they look for things to "take them into the race" Whilst getting off the fence to do exactly that she missed the chance for the winning run

Best ride of the day just happened in Singapore and McEvoy could take lessons from this. Kb Soo on the winner Darci Charmer in race 8. Drew barrier 8 and managed to be on the rails 3 back after a few 100m. He made his way out and never panicked when he was disappointed for a run, balanced his mount  again to go for another run. Most aust jockeys will try to barge clear and lose momentum with the horse being buffeted or worse still hope for the heavens to open up.

If you look at the 4th placegetter in the same race Pin Your Hopes in McEvoy's race, it was unlucky too.

Reckon she had been out of form for a while, a couple of falls and then the passing of Guy Walter who provided roughly 40% of her rides may have contributed. She went from a consistent 9-10% strike rate to 6% in the last couple of years.

Good to see her ride a metro winner today, so hopefully that gives her a kick along.

She was very highly regarded by the late Guy Walter because of her ability and willingness to carry out his instructions.

Can I suggest to you that perhaps the tracks have completely different turf and thickness ?

Can I also suggest the times in Japan are a little miss leading.

Red Cadeaux can run ( apparently ) 3.14.7 around Kyoto yet at Flemington he has been beaten in 4 cups by horses that ran ( good ) 3.20.84,  3.20.45,  3.20.30,  3.17.71

I don't think the times are misleading at all.
Red Cadeaux just ran 3:17 around Flemington as a 9 year old, WHY?????????

......because there was more pace on this year than in any other renewal he ran in.
Likewise when he goes to Japan, there is far more pace.

The race in question which Red Cadeaux ran 3rd in 3:14.7, the horse that led was out by 10 lengths at one stage.
This is a common occurence in Japan.

a good run throughout, he took his mount to the front passing the 200m using strong hands and heels vigour with minimal backhanded whip use.
He said that at this time Fraud was fully extended and no longer responding to the whip, therefore heelected to ride hands and heels only.
He said that from the 100m his mount was not accelerating and although he was confident of winning Fraud was beginning to weaken. He said that
he had been aware ofWhitney’s Girl being disappointed for a run passing the 200m and was surprised when it improved very quickly on his outside
inside the 50m, however his mount was fully extended despite him momentarily decreasing his vigour for a period between the 40m and the 20m and
stated that whatever vigour he applied during this time Fraud was weakening and would not have accelerated. Taking into account all factors
including the manner that both Fraud and Whitney’s Girl ran to the finish it was determined that the actions of G Lynch inside the 50m did
not affect the result of the race, however G Lynch was reprimanded (AR137b) and advised that he was to ensure that he rode his mount in a
manner that left no room for query in any regard

I actually like him as a jockey as he seems to have a lot more vigour than most others on the country circuit but on this occasion he got out of jail. There is no doubt he didn't see the other horse coming and it cost him the race.

Tegan Harrison on numerous horses lately, could figure in the worst ride of the day category.
Her ride on Double Eagle at Caloundra today was terrible and the horse would have won easily with a "positive" ride

2nd race at otaki this morning the ride of Danielle Johnson on Capinsky is almost indescribable in it's incompetence.

I was on the winner and thought it was the only danger.

If anyone can explain the manovering decisions that she chose between the 600m and 400m mark I would love to know.

She was deadset lucky not to fall and all because of her complete idiocy.
Title: Worst Ride Of The Day Or Ever
Post by: Lert on 2014-Nov-28, 02:38 PM
Agree that it was a very incompetent ride, although not sure you can say she made bad maneuvering decisions.
I don't think she made any tactical decisions, she was just hanging on for dear life while the horse ran all over the place without any input from her at all.
Very lucky to stay upright.

Horse in the death seat was flat out at the 600. She is in the clear following it, and all that was needed was to simply go to the outside she is in clear running and there are no problems.

The horse was only wayward after she tried to get into the gap inside the death seat horse and caused it to get involved in a bumping duel with the rails horse by trying to get on the winners back, instead of being in clear running around the death seat horse.

Race 2: TRADE ALLIANCE MAIDEN PLATE - 1050M

MOUNT PERRY - Steadied when tightened for room shortly after the start and lost ground.

TAVY NIGHTS - Became awkward of its own accord near the 500m and lost ground.

MOE'S TAVERN - Rider M. Dracos was found guilty of a charge under AR. 137(b) in that he failed to ride his mount out approaching the end of the race with sufficient vigour, specifically the portion of the race between the 100m and the 30m. Jockey Dracos's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period of 2 weeks, to commence at midnight on Saturday 31 January 2015 and expire at midnight on Saturday 14 February 2015. Whilst stewards could not be comfortably satisfied that jockey Dracos's actions did cost his mount first place, they were of the view that his actions did cast some doubt as to whether or not MOE'S TAVERN should have won the race.

It looked odd.....horse looked home until Dracos got tired. :o

You'd think there would be a strategy other than "I'll sit here 6 deep for the entire race". I don't blame her. Probably told by the trainer to take up a possie mid field. Apprentices need guidance from either the trainer of their masters when faced with challenging situations.

Sam Spratt on Stolen Dance in the 4th at Ellerslie.

I really love it when a jockey is more worried about holding in a horse behind the leaders around the home turn instead of focusing on the race itself and lets the one bolting in front to get an extra 2 lengths break on them.

I'm sure she felt really big on her success in pushing that horse in. I wonder if she felt the same way when they crossed the line.  ;)

Borderline incompetent to allow D Whyte on the second fave to get up outside him in the 3 wide line. Could easily have eased out and avoided the trouble in which he found himself for the next 400m.

Nash can do that at times. He did it on Fiorente and lost the ride.

There was no opening. That's why Rawiller had reef him to the outside.

Kermadec took more than 4 lengths out of the winner's lead in the last furlong. Takes a fair turn of foot to do that.

Watch the replay again a gap develops around the 420m mark (roughly) the horse in the red cap comes out and the a gap of around 1 and a bit horse widths appears to the horse on the inside with the black and white chequed cap.

If you watch closely he gives his mount a bit to get going into the gap and he goes a little bit. At around the 330m point , the horse in the red cap moves back in and the gap is closed. Then he gets desperate and reefs to the outside

I have no doubt it should have won the race and so does Nash. He knows and admitted as such afterwards.

"I think it was there for everyone to see. We were a certainty beaten."

http://www.racenet.com.au/news/109490/What-the-jockeys-said---2015-Australian-Guineas

Momentum is an important thing and he has none of it when switching across heels.

There is a lot of luck when faced with what Nash was.

Take for instance Race 3 Orient Line. Nick Hall is in the same position as Nash was. But he waits and he waits and it opens up for him.

I backed one young Clare Nutman was riding in the 2nd at Hawkesbury today. Had good form around the odds on favourite but drew a little wide.

You'd think there would be a strategy other than "I'll sit here 6 deep for the entire race". I don't blame her. Probably told by the trainer to take up a possie mid field. Apprentices need guidance from either the trainer of their masters when faced with challenging situations.

But in the washup, it goes down as an aweful ride  :lol:

When Abduction ran 2nd to Thunder Lady in the Wakeful last spring, it was 4th on the turn and then leading at the 400m.

Today McDonald grabs hold of it and drops it out to last. Was never a hope with those tactics.

Starting to notice that if McDonald drops something out to the rear it never ever wins  :no:

Contrast that negative ride with that of Hugh Bowman on the winner. A thinking jockey who is always positive.   emthup

Just wondering whether D Browne on Diamond Oasis is re-thinking this morning how he might have ridden the race differently.

With a bit of speed on, and the wide barrier, a bit of patience might have been more appropriate.
The horse would have had the final crack with petrol in the tank!

Ya don't have to be an apprentice to make judgement errors  :bulb:

The rides on Sure And Fast when he won the Championship and yesterday's ride seemed to be "extremely different". $3 into $2.50 favourite.

No questions asked:

Sure And Fast – was reluctant to improve to the outside of horses when inclined to lay in under
pressure in the early part of the straight. Near the 150m was awkwardly placed between Kanguru and
Bulletproof Monk. A post race veterinary examination did not reveal any abnormalities.


I thought at the very least punters were entitled to an explanation.

Race 7: Sky Racing Tattersall’s Club Tiara Group 1 – 1400m
1st – Srikandi 2nd – Avoid Lightning 3rd – Lumosty 4th – Bound For Earth

TARLOSHAN – Slow to begin. Overraced in the early stages.

SOLICIT – Overraced in the early stages.

CATKINS – Had to be steadied from the heels of SOLICIT near the 1100m. When questioned as to the performance jockey H. Bowman stated that in the early stages he elected to settle behind SOLICIT, which he anticipated settling closer to the speed. However, when HAZARD allowed SRIKANDI to cross to the lead he was forced to race further back than anticipated. Jockey Bowman added that the tempo in the middle stages did not suit CATKINS and as a result he was not overly disappointed with its performance.

ROSE OF CHOICE – Had to be steadied from the heels of REAL SURREAL near the 800m.

PEGGY JEAN – Held up rounding the home turn.

AVOID LIGHTNING – Jockey T. Clark accidentally dropped his whip near the 200m.

REAL SURREAL – Raced 4 wide without cover throughout. A post race veterinary examination of the mare revealed no significant abnormalities. Jockey M. Cahill reported that he pressured the mare in the early stages to take up a forward position however, commenced to race keenly which resulted in him being caught wide for the majority of the race. Nothwithstanding jockey Cahill was of the view that the mare may have failed to back up from its last start 7 days prior. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any significant abnormalities.

DUBLIN LASS – Raced 5 wide without cover throughout. A post race veterinary examination of the mare revealed no significant abnormalities

    I didn't take any notice of the pattern of the first 6 races on the day. 

    I didn't give a single thought to the fact that the favourite had drawn the outside and would be coming over to look for a spot, and I might want to be in a position to make her do some work.

    I had no plan B when my Plan A quite predictably proved wildly wrong.

    I somehow managed to get a mare with good tactical speed back to second last on the bend.

You don't know it Goldie, but PH and I have 'history.'

New Year's Day 2014, PH sat on a Desleigh Forster mare called Poste Restante (retired).

I use the word sat, because 'rode' does not describe what he did.

PR was a great swooper, and PH decided that was the go.
Perhaps he had a celebration on NY Eve, but either he was sleeping it off on the turn, or he stopped to record details of the ride in his diary.

Either way, he forgot to tell the horse 'ok, time to go.' He had her about 7L behind the field at the turn  :rant: :rant:

PR was a screaming fast finishing 4th at $14. I had thrown in for a decent chinese banquet.

She finished the closest of 4ths for the 6th of her 8 career 4ths.
She won 7 of 40, for $237k, and return of 133% if you followed her up to her retirement.
Wonderful mare, but hard to catch ... like PH  >:(

Not sure about that geoff but I do agree there is certainly a large amount of " bad" rides that are just unlucky and jocks are wrongly blamed

JWH...I find it hard to understand your post as how many times have jockeys admitted to a shocking ride in a race...obviously you don't listen to interviews.

What about Dig A Pony in Melbourne. First race I ever watched live on Channel 78  :sad:

"Dig A Pony - when questioned regarding her riding tactics, Linda Meech explained that after having jumped away fairly she then elected to ease with the intention of taking a position behind Spirit Of Heaven (NZ), which she was aware was going forward from its outside barrier. Linda Meech added that in the early stages of the race she was caught wide and unsure as to whether she would be able to take up a position behind Spirit Of Heaven (NZ), which was racing three wide without cover, so she elected to restrained her mount to take up a position at the rear of the field and closer to the rail. Linda Meech further explained that near the 500m when the pace quickened, she was caught flat footed, and in hindsight she would have been better to allow her mount to stride forward from the 600m."

This has to be one of the worst, if not the worst, threads on the forum.

People who have never thrown a leg over a horse for competitive purpose criticising professionals about the way they do their jobs and casting about spurious assumptions about them based on these criticisms.

 emthdown emthdown emthdown
Have to back JWH on this one.

I have criticised rides myself, but I wasn't in the race, so htf would I know what caused events to play out??

It is true that 9 out of the rest of a field of 10 may think they could have done better, but at the end of the day, if you can't win a winnable race, trainers will look further afield next time they want a rider.

It's different when a horse is not expected to win, when running over unsuirable distances, and getting ready for a set race.

But you try telling mug punters that  :no:

Everyone knows that the best riders are in the stand.....read at home behind our PC's for those of us commenting. :bop:

For my part I can ride a horse and in my youth would often go on Sunday rides from Railton's Riding school at Kalinga..Giddy Up :whistle:


The Riders in the Stand  Banjo Paterson :thumbsup:
 

There's some that ride the Robbo style, and bump at every stride;
 While others sit a long way back, to get a longer ride.
 There's some that ride like sailors do, with legs and arms, and teeth;
 And some ride on the horse's neck, and some ride underneath.


But all the finest horsemen out -- the men to Beat the Band --
 You'll find amongst the crowd that ride their races in the Stand.
 They'll say "He had the race in hand, and lost it in the straight."
 They'll show how Godby came too soon, and Barden came too late.


They'll say Chevalley lost his nerve, and Regan lost his head;
 They'll tell how one was "livened up" and something else was "dead" --
 In fact, the race was never run on sea, or sky, or land,
 But what you'd get it better done by riders in the Stand.


The rule holds good in everything in life's uncertain fight;
 You'll find the winner can't go wrong, the loser can't go right.
 You ride a slashing race, and lose -- by one and all you're banned!
 Ride like a bag of flour, and win -- they'll cheer you in the Stand

Can someone explain to me what the 4kg claiming apprentice was doing on the $2.70 favourite Roycie in the 7th at Geelong today?

It gets back sometimes, but never 4 lengths behind the 2nd last horse in a 1000m sprint.

To see it fly home for 2nd - what do you make of that? It didn't miss the start. Looking at the replay it appear to be restrained.

Have we just witnessed the worst ever executed deadun'?

Is the young apprentice not up to it?

Have the commentators offered up some plausible excuse?

Race 7 HARVEY NORMAN ELECTRICAL BM64 HANDICAP - 1000 metres:

Rinaldo Connections advised the gelding would be ridden further back in an attempt to finish the race off. Settled worse than mid field. Raced wide throughout.

Roycey Began awkwardly and as a result lost ground. Had to be steadied near the 250 metres when attempting to establish a neat run to the inside of Viva La Dance. Apprentice Amber Sims and trainer Daniel Kelly were questioned regarding the tactics adopted upon the gelding. D Kelly stated it had been his intention for Roycey to settle in a mid-field position before being put into the race from the 300 metres. A Sims stated after beginning slowly her mount settled further back than intended, however, she acknowledged she should have made a greater effort to quicken and position her mount closer to the balance of the field. Stewards were of the opinion that after commencing somewhat awkwardly, A Sims erred in failing to urge her mount along through the early and middle stages in order to tack onto the rear of the field. Further, Stewards were of the opinion it may have been beneficial for A Sims to improve to the outside of Viva La Dance in the straight rather than take a neat run to that mares inside. A Sims was referred to the Apprentice Skills Review Panel. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any obvious abnormality.

 

Viva La Dance Lay out rounding the turn and in the straight.

New Endeavour Slow to begin. Raced wide without cover for the majority of the event. Performed below market expectations. Rider Ben Melham reported the colt lacked a desire for racing. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any obvious abnormality.

Yeah I know mate. We can be a bit harsh on apprentices learning their trade. They make many mistakes along the path of learning - doesn't matter what trade they are in.

It would be a good outcome if they go through that video with her and point out her mistakes and she learns from that.

The replay is up on racing.com. It is Race 7 at Geelong on Friday and well worth a watch. It is just "jaw dropping" - doubly so when you consider it was the heavily backed favourite. I think they overstate the "missing the start" bit.

Corey Brown on Tatoosh in the Spring Champion. Regular racing pattern is to come from well back but got hunted and was ridden upside down.

All the ones who fought out the finish came from the middle of the field backwards. Should have been in the finish if ridden patiently but would not have challenged the winner on all probability though.

Race 7AAMI VICTORIA DERBY - 2500 metres:

Scaddens Run - Steven King made official application to be considered for a winning or losing fee as he was of the view that he had a firm engagement as the rider of Scaddens Run in this race.  Both Steven King and Trainer Frankie Stockdale were interviewed regarding the circumstances leading up to today and on the evidence the Stewards were of the view that it was reasonable for Steven King to have formed the view that he did have an engagement on Scaddens Run, therefore Stewards acceded to his request under the provisions of AR8 which states:

To assist in the control of racing, Stewards shall be appointed according to the Rules of the respective Principal Racing Authorities, with the following powers:

(ll) To adjudicate on the claim by any rider that a nominator or trainer of a horse had refused to honour a riding engagement, and to make an order regarding the engagement, and/or any compensation considered appropriate.

Had to be checked at the 800 metres to avoid the heels of Jadeer.

Tarzino (NZ) - Trainer Mick Price advised that it was the stables intention to ride the horse closer due to the shorter run to the first turn and the step up in distance. Settled mid field.

Ayers Rock Connections advised to be ridden with cover. Settled in third position.

Extra Choice (NZ) Slow to begin.

Get The Picture Shortly after the start was hampered when tightened for room between Jadeer and Iron Boss, which was taken in by Palace Tycoon, which was in turn taken in by Etymology, which shifted in.

Jadeer Knuckled on jumping away. Shifted to the outside of Kia Ora Koutou, which also shifted out at this point near the 1000 metres and as a result Jadeer, Pay Up Bro and Man Of Choice (NZ) were taken wider on the course and hampered.

Iron Boss Raced fiercely in the early and middle stages and as a result shifted out near the 1900 metres and hampered Etymology. A post-race veterinary examination failed to reveal any obvious abnormality.

Lizard Island Raced wide without cover in the early and middle stages.

Pay Up Bro Interference near the 800 metres.

Man Of Choice Interference near the 800 metres.

Kia Ora Koutou - Hampered passing the 800metres due to Pay Up Bro shifting in abruptly and making heavy contact.

Joseph Azzopardi (Kia Ora Koutou) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under the provision of AR137(a). The careless riding being that near the 800 metres he permitted his mount to shift out when Jadeer had committed to the outside of his heels resulting in Jadeer being taken out and causing severe interference to Pay Up Bro and Man Of Choice. Joseph Azzopardi had his licence to ride in races suspended for a total of 12 meetings to commence midnight 3 November, 2015 and to expire midnight 13 November, 2015. (3 metro, 9 provincial). In assessing penalty the Stewards were of the view that the incident qualified for the mid-range category of carelessness and took into account his guilty plea and good record.

I was probably a bit harsh on Tegan yesterday , you have to expect that when there is no racing in Qld on the day.   I'm sure she was instructed to lead and I'm sure it is her standing instruction from Gollan.
I don't wish to retract anything I said though.

Some interesting stats from racingandsports

When riding for Gollan, Harrison has a 21.8% POT!!

Very impressive!!

Overall, a loss of 29.9%!!

I'll let you all draw your own conclusions on those figures  :whistle:

Couldn't agree more. Ride lacked any form of aggression. As for Shot Across the Bow a ride like that should see the apprentice dispatched to Country venues until his/her skills are up to scratch for City Racing. Four wide on the bustle from gate 5 ! Totally useless. Also naturally no action from the stipes ! No query to the trainer regarding instructions etc .

Menangle Race 4 Saturday

http://www.harnessmediacentre.com.au/trotstv/replays/23213

Stewards questioned L Panella the Driver of YAYAS HOT SPOT NZ regarding her driving of that horse after entering the straight, and in particular her failure to improve earlier than had occurred.  L Panella stated that in the early part of the straight she had wanted to shift out from behind the leader but felt although under pressure BLUE POINTER’S legs were always outside her wheel. She stated that later in the straight she was also aware of another runner improving to the outside of BLUE POINTER and felt in the circumstances she had shifted out at the first opportunity it was safe to do so.  L Panella added that on a previous occasion when driving YAYAS HOT SPOT NZ in a heat of the Derby she had shifted ground in similar circumstances and on that occasion the horse had gone further than she had intended causing interference for which she incurred a suspension.  After considering this explanation and reviewing the official vision, including the race mentioned (22 February, 2014), as Stewards considered the vision from the 600 metres tower confirmed the Drivers contention in regards to the position of BLUE POINTER, L Panella was advised her explanation would be noted.

I'll put an entry in for racecaller Terry Bailey from the 2nd at Pakenham.

The favourite Corruption was ridden cold at the rear of the field in a slowly run race as Terry reminded us constantly during the race. Damien Oliver was just playing on the leader and Brad Rawiller comes out looking like he should be riding at Kangaroo Island. Was an aweful ride with zero initiative - not sure if you blame the jock or if he was acting under instructions.

Not the worst ride of the day but Tim Clark's ride on Man of Choice shows the difference between a top rider and one who thinks he's top class but is not.

He should've pushed on towards the lead after jumping well but didn't have the balls to go against instructions. Much better to ease back and sit 3 deep letting the leader get away with murder.

B Shinn - Defcon; 3 wide, no cover. Enough said.

Most of the time I post on this thread it is about McDonald riding a backmarker.

He had that backmarker odds on favourite under a throttle hold at the 700m and really only went for it after they straightened. As all the commentators were politely saying, "ran out of straight".

If a hoop at King Island had ridden the horse like that he would have been stood down for incompetence.

Brenton Avdulla went up to Newcastle last week and rode three for the stable. 2 winners and a second and all were beautiful rides.

McDonald's ride on Exosphere put it out there to show the nation what his judgement is like.

Not just McDonald though.

Waller's good middle distance horse Multifacets won at Canterbury two starts ago. On the back of a hot speed Rory Hutchings brought him from the rear for a beautifully timed run to get the cash.

For some reason, the stable took him off and put on Hugh Bowman yesterday. Again there was a cracking pace. But where is Bowman running? 4th just off the pace. Then he drives him to the lead at the 300m only to have the backmarkers run past him at the 200m, including one he beat easily last start.

I would doubt very much if he even bothered to watch a replay of the horse's win the previous start.

Meanwhile Rory makes best use of his opportunities and rides a bottler to get up on the stable 50-1 roughie in the next.

Some of these jockeys abilities are exaggerated by the good rides they get.

"Ran out of straight " what is wrong with these modern callers. Call it is as it is -a dead set shocker . Rosehill has the biggest straight in Sydney. This fellow is painted as some wonder jockey. If a hoop at King Island had ridden the horse like that he would have been stood down for incompetence. How long before Godolphin or whatever their name is send O'Shea's love child back to the Shaky Isles and find themselves a decent rider. Come to think of it the trainer is not going much better either.

McDonald has a strike rate of 4.3 in Sydney while O'Shea's strike rate is 6.8. This tells me that McDonald is going a hell of a lot better than  O'Shea.

Sure there are some bad rides from McDonald but I would like to see a list of 5 better jockeys riding on the east coast of Australia.

He looks good, and his stats are good, because he rides these well bred gallopers in midweek city and provincial class (and off-season Saturdays) who are vastly superior to their rivals and can slot into a good spot and he pulls them out and runs past the opposition because they are simply better bred horses.

It is rides like that on Exosphere and Asinara that his shortcomings come to the fore.

The stewards picked it up on Wednesday:

Asinara – rider J McDonald stated that, from his wide gate, he expected to take up a position
towards the rear of the field. He added the filly travelled comfortably throughout the event,
however, in the middle stages commenced to overrace and was restrained from the heels of
Dubaiinstyle near the 1000m. He further stated that, leaving the 600m, when Dubaiinstyle
was crossed by Lester's Home, his mount became awkward on the heels of Dubaiinstyle
making the home turn, whereby it finished off strongly.

Now I wonder why it was over-racing.  :chin:

I'm not so sure he is to blame with Exosphere - the horse seems to have some serious flaws in his make up.The  Golden Slipper and the Coolmore Stud left with me with doubts and then the Lightning.

He won't be getting mine again.

Has the same run as Chataqua he wins the race - see post in the Lightning thread with the photos.

McDonald came up with some lame excuse blaming Va Pensiero but he had ample opportunity to follow Dwayne Dunn across. I didn't see any mention in the stewards report about Va Pensiero costing Exosphere any ground or forcing him to run in "the glue", so I can only assume that the stewards think the same as me about McDonald's explanation i.e. load of bull.

I didn't think there were any excuses in last year's Slipper.

He was again "in the glue" in the G1 in the Spring. McDonald rode him that day too. The bias at Flemington during the Spring carnival has been widely acknowledged, even by the track manager.

Godolphin probably needs a local jockey to ride their horses down the straight - rather than "spitting the dummy" and saying that they will not run them down the straight. McDonald obviously has no idea how to read the bias down the straight. In fact, never mind Exosphere, what is McDonald's riding record like in Melbourne?

I'd be keeping McDonald in Sydney during the Melbourne carnivals if I were O'Shea and recruiting the likes of Damien Oliver, Dwayne Dunn, Craig Williams...even someone like Glen Boss or Kerryn McEvoy.

Just to make sure we are on the same page ianb, you do acknowledge that there was track bias both on Saturday and last Spring, don't you?

Considering O'Shea is normally not backward in bagging jockeys and after the race said

"WE got the tactics wrong" I think you are correct ACER.

Yes McDonald's Melbourne record is nowhere near as good as his Sydney record but it is still better than O'Shea's Melbourne record.

Also McDonald only rides during the carnivals.

Although I don't have the figures for the Melbourne jockeys and McEvoy, during those times, I'd be surprised if any of the jockeys mentioned have a better record. Especially if you consider  that there have so many interstate winners over the last few years.

The stewards report below indicates that both the horses in races 7 & 8 at Doomben today has excuses, however both were ridden by Beau Appo.On reading the report could the poor start of both horses be attributed to the rider's inexperience at the barrier once a horse has been boxed or just bad luck ?

ELEIVUE – Reared at the start and hit its head on the top of the barrier partition and lost significant ground.

HALLS CREEK – Stood flatfooted at the start and lost significant ground. Could not obtain clear running over the final 200m and as a result went to the line not fully tested by its rider

Where does Appo rank on the Brisbane jockeys' riding premiership ?

However I do not rate him particularly highly in general.

Beau doesn't get a heap of opportunities but can ride very light. He seems to bob between a couple of rides on a saturday at doomben to maybe a half or full book at the gold coast the next saturday

Considering the ride on Right Or Wrong,I would have thought it would be mandatory for Qld Stewards to do some more probing regarding the horse.

Other than noting Fradd's explanation for his ride,I do not see where any further action is to be taken. Surely this is a classic case of where further delving is needed.

The horse eased from $1.65 to $1.80 and Lindsay Galllagher, one of the bigger on course bookmakers, states on the infamous Just Racing website that he didn't write 1 ticket for Right Or Wrong.

He also states that he was unaware of there being much money for the horse with anyone else.

Now I know this was a bad ride so  Qld Stewards, if you are doing something and you surely should be, let us know because this is not a good result for Unitab's  turn over.

There at Pakeham R2 a good example of why apprentice jockeys get a claim.

Favourite Gagosian with Ben Melham up from barrier 5 sits outside the leader.

Second favourite, Puzzled Princess, with apprentice M. Dee aboard from barrier 4, somehow (I'm really not sure how will have to watch a replay), but somehow manages to spend the entire trip 3 deep outside Gagosian.

Probably fair comment to say Puzzled Princess would have won the race instead of coming second to Gagosian if it was ridden with the slightest competence  :chin:

If you are talking about Bowman on Press Statement I think you are way off. Yes he probably didn't end up in the position he wanted but the horse had more than enough time to run down the winner. He peaked on his run. Once it loomed up everyone thought it would go straight past the other horse.
The winner was amazing. Watch the replay, 3 or 4 wide the entire trip but was too tough on the day.

Don't agree. I don't care what the stewards report says I saw it with my own eyes. It had its chance to run it down but peaked on its run. Always easy in hindsight. If he gets caught wide all the way and loses by a head then he would be copping it even more. If he flew home and was in front a stride after the post I could understand but he didn't dash like most expected. Not the perfect ride but not the reason it lost IMO.

I thought that. I lost a lot on the race but wasn't disappointed with the ride.

You've got to be careful with these new Autumn 3yos who have been lightly raced and are only just coming into their own now.

Lees has been very patient with Le Romain. Only two starts as a Spring 3yo - 2nd behind the smart Hellbent in a sprint.

Maintained his record of never being unplaced last start when 2nd to Press St. I saw a good horse today who might turn out to be a top quality stayer. Conversely to Press Statement peaking, maybe this bloke outstayed him?

Waller's good middle distance horse Multifacets won at Canterbury two starts ago. On the back of a hot speed Rory Hutchings brought him from the rear for a beautifully timed run to get the cash.

For some reason, the stable took him off and put on Hugh Bowman yesterday. Again there was a cracking pace. But where is Bowman running? 4th just off the pace. Then he drives him to the lead at the 300m only to have the backmarkers run past him at the 200m, including one he beat easily last start.

Much more patient ride today  ;)

Yes, sorry, I did receive a reply last week. The review was not in the original stewards report.

Stewards at Doomben did review Jim Byrnes ride on Bentles, and did not believe his ride breached the Rules of Racing. The gelding did not begin well and Byrne rode it vigorously to the first turn to lead, and unfortunately when  joined by Bernie of Babylon, near the 1300,  both horses tended to continue with the fast tempo.
 
Stewards were more concerned with Byrnes ride on SatirIcal Lass whereby he did not ride that mare to the line from the 100 metres ,after he obtained clear running .

Stewards were more concerned with Byrnes ride on SatirIcal Lass whereby he did not ride that mare to the line from the 100 metres ,after he obtained clear running .


Glad you mentioned her, she went in my black book after that run.

Yes Wily well spotted. I had something on it early had huge odds. Watching the race I wasn't totally surprised when I saw who was on it. That's how he rides these days. At best just a bush jockey. Needs that big straight track in the UK and another Joe Janiak champion.

Victim of circumstance but J Mac Ghisoni must at least get a mention

Was he?

Approaching the turn he has the option of getting away from the traffic and try and steer a clear path a bit wider, or take the lazy option and ride for luck on the inside. He chooses the lazy option.

His fate is sealed when the jockey on Counterattack closes him off in the last 100m.

He should have been on the outside of Counterattack. Not on his inside.

Should have won by a minute.

Happens far too often for that jockey.

As I have pointed out on this thread before, he looks really good in restricted class where he is sitting on those wonderfully bred horses who have a bit on their opposition. But give him a challenge and he has a high failure rate.

Exosphere in the Lightning. Old North in the Phar Lap. Now Ghisoni in the Arrowfield.

In one of those racing gossip columns the other week they reported on a "public Group 3 slanging match" between a trainer and his stable jockey without saying who it was. Wouldn't be surprised at all if it was O'Shea and McDonald.

His mount in the last Mesa is a very smart horse. Would be surprised if it isn't in the finish. Drawn 11 but the Warwick Farm 1000m has only one bend so if he doesn't panic should be in a nice position at the 200m.

Brilliant win first up on the Heavy 8 at Wyong

I thought he was a victim of pace Wily.

Those small fields in WA can be a trap where they jog along before sprinting home the last 400. The gap was there but the moment he chose to stay inside it shut on him.

I saved on the winner but Universal Law was a much better result for me too.

Wily he seems to ride most of his horses in a similar style - very quiet and getting the last shot at them. I reckon most of his wins are by half a length or less coming from the back of the field.Because of this if he gets any slight check or hold up more often than not he will get done.
In saying that he rides a lot of odds on pops that would be paying $3-$5 with someone else on board.
I just don't think he deserves a lot of criticism based on the price of the runners as they are so under the odds it's not funny. He is one that I find hard to back but I also hate backing against him.

SKYE Bogenhuber vigorously defended a charge levelled at her by stewards of not giving Happy Event every chance in the Dalrello Stakes before being suspended for two months on Saturday.

Stewards found Bogenhuber failed to make sufficient effort to restrain the filly at the 900m and then allowed the filly to keep striding at the 800m mark as she and Love Spy opened up a big margin on the rest of the field.

Bogenhuber told stewards every time she tried to take hold of Happy Event “she wanted to run off”.

“Do you just expect me to restrain and slot into second place like I’m driving a car?” she said.

“The horse is working against me. I did everything possible at the time. It was already fired up.

“Would you rather me run off the track and pull it up?”

Earlier trainer John Zielke had noted Happy Event lost her tongue tie and said that contributed to her racing ungenerously.

Stewards said it was a serious offence and they expected better of a jockey with Bogenhuber’s very successful record around Toowoomba.

Bogenhuber, who has only recently returned from injury, indicated she will appeal the suspension.

On the face of it the stewards decision will be difficult to upset.  :king:



Race 4: Moore Trailers Dalrello Stakes QTIS 2yo Plate – 1200m

HAPPY EVENT – Jockey S. Bogenhuber was found guilty of a charge under AR135(b) in that from the 900m after obtaining a position outside LOVE SPY she failed to make sufficient effort to restrain her mount when it was reasonable and permissible to do so particularly given she had ridden aggressively in the early stages to obtain a position outside the lead. Further, from the 800m she allowed her mount to stride forward which resulted in HAPPY EVENT maintaining a fast tempo when it was reasonable and permissible to restrain and attempt to maintain a position outside LOVE SPY, and that her actions as particularised have, in the opinion of the stewards, resulted in HAPPY EVENT failing to obtain the best possible position. Jockey Bogenhuber was suspended from riding in races or a period of 2 months, to commence at midnight, 20 April and to expire midnight 20 June.

Stewards may have thought this was a "Team Effort" with Bogen taking on Love Spy with  the stablemate Spot The Diff getting a soft run  behind but it was Crack Me Up which finished much too well. :thumbsup:

The stewards found agin her and so they should ......it looked like a slaughter to me and  I don't think there's any chance of her getting off.....none whatsoever.....the RDB has made some strange decisions in the past and might feel inclined to do so again ..that is if they get the chance ......for after this week if the RI Bill is passed the RDB will be no more ....it's function will be taken over by QCAT......
probably a good thing. :shrug:

As a supplementary question how did the tongue tie come off......was it faulty ....a bit of perished elastic band .... to stop the horse getting it's tongue over the bit...I didn't notice that the tongue tie was submitted as an excuse by her. :bye:

Have a couple ? over this decision.
If Stewards believe it was team riding wouldn't the trainer get suspended rather than the jockey? Obviously they are assuming the trainer instructed the jockey to ride forward.
In Bogenhuber's defence, she's been around a while & is a very good jockey. If she says she couldn't control the horse, & ultimately had to let it run, why wouldn't stewards believe that reason?  :chin: We see horses take off quite often & jockeys let them run as they have no chance if they are fought all the way.

Kym Hann, the licensed trainer of Bolshoi Bandit, and jockey Craig Robertson, were first notified by Stewards on Wednesday, 13 April 2016 that they were investigating the tactics adopted and analysing wagering on the race. They have been asked to attend Thursday’s inquiry.

Stewards report on the day

Bolshoi Bandit Jumped awkwardly, shifted out and bumped Pupangamirri. Performed below market expectations. Rider Craig Robertson explained the gelding was reluctant to begin and settled towards the rear of the field in the early stages. He added he urged his mount along, however the gelding hung in throughout placing him at a disadvantage. In the straight hung in despite the efforts of its rider and went to the line without being fully tested. A post race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.

Just watched the replay and looked at the winner's form.

That race was a 0-58. Racing Australia "in the running" and betting flucs for Easy Best.

3rd@800m, 3rd@400m, $31/$10/$9.50/$9

Start before on 10th March, same class at Wangaratta over 2000m - beaten 12.1 lengths.

12.1L, 11th@800m, 12th@400m, $51/$61

In fact his previous 11 starts before this one saw his odds $26, $71, $12, $14, $41, $31, $21, $71, $71, $61 and $61 - so you could say $31 into $9 went against the grain  :)

This start was his first run for a new stable after a break of 4 weeks.

I would like to know who the stewards were that officiated at the meeting. If they believe all that dribble the jock has divulged, they need to find new jobs. Maybe that's why stewards report can't be found.
Keep an eye on positions vacant in integrity ranks over next few weeks.
Did not urge his mount forward. Did not hang in throughout or in the straight.

Check out N.Day on Zedaheel - Townsville race 1. In fact, the whole race looked dodgy with no pace and not a single move until the eventual winner had kicked away on the turn.

Amazingly, the pace was really on in the 2nd race for N.Day and he was able to steam down the outside on the well backed favourite.

I have complete faith that Mr Reardon will have his group of stewards in Townsville all over these races and asking the relevant questions.

Punters.Com report

Jockeys charged over race rides


Riding charges have been laid against apprentice Tom Sadler and jockey Craig Robertson.

Racing Victoria stewards issued one charge against Sadler and two charges against Robertson on Wednesday.

Sadler’s charge stems from his ride on Lonrockstar in the Brett And Mark Wilson Sprint at Caulfield last Saturday.

Lonrockstar, trained by Sadler’s father John, finished 11th as a $6 second favourite after being last to the home turn.

Stewards allege Sadler didn’t take all reasonable and permissible measures throughout the race to ensure Lonrockstar obtain the best possible finishing position.

Robertson was charged after stewards allege he didn’t allow Bolshoi Bandit to run on its merits when finishing last in a race at Echuca on April 10 when a $4.40 second favourite.

Stewards allege in his second charge that he didn’t take all reasonable and permissible measures throughout the race to ensure Bolshoi Bandit obtain the best possible finishing position.

The second charge against Robertson was issued should the first charge could not be sustained.

Robertson and Sadler will front the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board at a date to be fixed.

No surprise about Robertson it looked as HOT as mustard ...the connections didn't stick up for him either no surprise there

Race 2: Dina Duff Memorial QTIS 2yo Maiden Plate – 1300m

INVINCIBOY – Significantly slow to begin. Connections were advised that a warning would be placed on the horse regarding its barrier manners. Tightened for room near the 900m and had to be steadied. Again tightened for room near the 300m and had to be steadied.

CHARMLEY RIVER – Stewards questioned jockey D. Browne regarding the handling of the horse. He indicated that from the wide alley he had attempted to secure a position similar to the horse’s most recent starts on the pace, however not leading. It became apparent shortly after the start he would be obliged to steady in order to secure a position close to the fence, and at a point near the 900m felt he would be able to secure a trailing position one off the fence behind GOLDEN DEPART, however he was obliged to shift out at that point after having placed pressure on runners to his inside. A short distance later the pace of the event steadied and he attempted to improve in a 3-wide position, however the horse to his inside, GOLDEN DEPART, shifted out at the same point and he was therefore forced to race in a 4-wide position until entering the home straight. He indicated that whilst these factors did have a bearing on the overall performance, he was nevertheless disappointed with its finishing effort as he felt at the 400m the horse was close enough and travelling comfortably to run the leader down, however did not respond as he had anticipated. Stewards acknowledged that his positioning of the horse throughout the event was not ideal, however accepted that he had little alternative in the circumstances.

LADY SOLERNO – Trainer R. Cameron was questioned regarding the improved performance. He indicated that at the horse’s first start this preparation he was pleased with the performance as the horse finished the race off well, however was held up for clear running over the concluding stages. He indicated that in a quality race at the horse’s most recent start it had performed satisfactorily, however, in his view, weakened over the concluding stages and following this he had elected to experiment with the addition of a tongue-tie, and was of the view that this may have been beneficial for the horse’s finishing effort. Apprentice A. Denby was fined $100 for using her whip more than 5 times prior to the 100m.

RAGEESE – Raced extremely wide without cover throughout. An inquiry was adjourned into the reason for the horse being checked near the 100m. A post race veterinary examination revealed the horse to have been galloped on on the near hind leg.

If there was any doubt that we need a complete clean out of Stewards in Queensland then D Browne's ride on Charnley River at Caloundra was the perfect validation . If a 4kg apprentice at Cunnamulla had ridden one of mine that way I might have just shook my head and moved on. No this was ridden but someone who many pundits keep telling everyone who wants to listen is one of the best jockeys in the land. What a load of garbage. At best it was  a shocker. At worst, well I won't comment. And yet as usual these Stewards have copped his assessment. I will bet that if he was a 4kg apprentice they
would sent him back to apprentice school to get   more tuition; or even called in one of these ridiculous "jockey advocates".

You can't be serious. That was a horrible ride in a dreadful race. At its previous start the horse got beaten two lengths in a Group 3  race after covering ground. I know which one I would rather take home and it is not the winner who turned in a huge form reversal. At best the ride on the runner up was incompetent. That is , at best.

Not a good look.

I reckon she is riding it like she is intimidated by the "close quarters" she finds herself in rather than something sinister. That was her first ride since December 3rd last year. She had 14 mounts in total last year - amazingly she won 3 races on New Years Day at the iconic Wallabadah meeting on the side of the hill then didn't ride another winner all year  :what:

I'll go easy and suggest the kid was being patient, waiting for the split. The head on does show that she's snookered and would have had to switch sideways to get out earlier.
The ride by Lever on Bogie was also very "placid" and when you consider the winner was $81 into $6's it adds a new light on all of it

Another inquiry that will continue is that into Blake Shinn’s ride on Thud in the Schweppes Handicap (Race 4).
Shinn had told Racing NSW stewards the four-year-old mare felt “underdone” after its fourth-placed finish.
While co-trainer Paul Snowden didn’t agree with that description, he did reveal he felt the horse was "vulnerable" first-up over the 1200m, and told the mare’s owners she was an only an "each-way chance".
Racing NSW stewards grilled Shinn for about 30 minutes, believing he failed to take advantage of two runs that presented themselves while cornering and at the 200m mark.
“I thought I rode her to instructions,” Shinn said.
“Jay Ford’s (mount Bonete’s) head is tilted to the left as if he’s looking to come out."
The comment left Racing NSW Chief Steward Marc Van Gestel asking, “You’re behind him, how can you see that?”
To which Shinn replied, “I’ve ridden in like 10,000 races.”
Snowden revealed Thud had pulled up with no abnormality.
After further questioning, Racing NSW stewards decided to adjourn the matter in order to look at the horse’s previous starts and to further study different aspects of Saturday’s race.

Trainer disagrees with jockey's description ....jockey says the horse felt underdone...trainer says it was vulnerable and only an each way chance ....not a lot of difference IMO I'll go with Blake Shinn's version but it wasn't one of his best rides ......if charged and I don't question his honesty he should dig out the "blameworthy" cases making an error of judgment will get him out of any trouble.

The ride on Most Exalted in Race 2 at Canterbury today grabbed the steward's attention.

Just saw the replay. There has been a lot of attention given to some other rides recently - I think this one trumps anything I've seen for a while  :shutup:

Racing NSW Replay

http://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2016Jun22&VenueCode=MjkwOTI4&RaceNumber=2&MeetingCategory=Professional&VideoFileType=FullReplay

Not real convinced about the explanation given either.

Most Exalted – was slow to begin. When questioned regarding his riding from the 600m, rider
G Schofield stated that he was instructed by trainer Mr J Cummings to ride the horse similarly to when
he was successful on the gelding at Canterbury on 8 June 2016. On that occasion, Most Exalted
settled at the tail of the field. He stated that after beginning only fairly today, he restrained his mount to
race back. G Schofield further stated that approaching the turn near the 600m, when trailing I Told
Georgie, he was reluctant to shift off the back of that runner to improve into the race as he felt to make
a run 600m from home would not be in the best interests of his mount. He stated that a short distance
later, near the 500m, when I Told Georgie shifted out to improve, that runner was taken further out
when In Mum's Memory hung out. He elected then to obtain runs to the inside of these horses and he
anticipated taking a run between Another Larga and Pennsylvania Ave approaching the 400m. He
stated he was unable to improve into this run due to Another Larga shifting ground in advance of him.
He then stated approaching the home turn, when he was aware he was unable to improve to the inside
of Another Larga, he attempted to shift out and improve between Another Larga and I Told Georgie,
however when Another Larga weakened in advance of him, and as his mount was improving into the
race at this point, he had to check off the heels of that runner and shifted to the outside to obtain clear
running on straightening. A post race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.

Blake Shinn handed one-month ban


about an hour ago by AAP
 
Leading jockey Blake Shinn will fight to preserve his reputation after copping a one-month suspension for his handling of a horse in a race at Rosehill.

 Racing NSW stewards said Shinn had options he should have taken on the home turn and again in the straight aboard Thud in a 1200m race last Saturday week in which the four-year-old mare finished fourth.

 Despite Thud's trainers Peter and Paul Snowden supporting Shinn and his ride, stewards charged the jockey and handed him the one-month ban which he indicated he would appeal.

 "I go out on every horse to win," Shinn said.

 "I have a reputation as one of the hardest working and competitive riders out there.

 "I don't want this to damage my reputation because I was there to win.

 "Things didn't pan out. A run came and a run closed."

 Senior trainer Peter Snowden said he had no concerns about the ride of Shinn who is the No.1 jockey at the stable and won this year's Golden Slipper on Capitalist for the team.

 "It's just bad luck on the day," Snowden said.

 "She is a horse with a short sharp sprint."

 "She was first-up over 1200 metres rather than 1100 which we would have preferred.

 "Blake is out there making a split-second decision. Blake sees it as he sees it."

 In charging Shinn with failing to take all reasonable and permissible measures to win or obtain the best possible position, chief steward Marc Van Gestel said the panel was concerned with four areas of the race beginning at the home turn where they said Shinn could have made a move outwards.

 Later in the straight they said he failed to ride with sufficient purpose and persisted with a run that saw Thud being inconvenienced.

 Shinn has been riding for 13 years and also has a Melbourne Cup trophy for his win aboard Viewed in 2008.

 "I've had more than 10,000 rides and never been charged under this rule," Shinn said.

 "My record speaks for itself."

 A thorough examination of betting records revealed no suspicious patterns on the race.

If he adopts the precedents following the learned rumblings of Tom Hughes QC and since adopted by the learned RDB in Qld in respect of Browne and Bogenhuber he'll likely get off.

Must say that Thud was unlucky but didn't think Shinn would get suspended over that ride, more couldn't get clear.
Shinn was much worse on Foxplay. Let the other horse go past at the 200m before trying to get Foxplay going. Too late to worry about catching it then. Race over.

Rainbow River with more encouragement than T Huet offered on his last run duly saluted at Taree today...Huet is looking at time out I expect.

That was wide of the mark......inquiry concluded no adverse findings made ......excuses the horse was mildly lame.


Ridden by Thomas Huet, the horse was backed from $9 into $2.70 favourite for the XXXX Gold Handicap (Race 6) over 1300m but failed to figure in the finish.

READ: Stewards to investigate Taree ride

The horse was found to be ‘mildly lame’ post-race.

A note at the top of a stewards report following a meeting at Kempsey on June 28 stated that the inquiry found ‘no unusual activity.’

 

Ridden by Peter Graham over the 1614m trip on Monday, Rainbow River started a $6 third favourite.

Settling just off the pace, Graham took off on the three-year-old at the 600m and eventually got home by almost two lengths.

The horse had previously trialled, as requested by stewards, at Kempsey on June 28 finishing second.

A long time ago a bloke who could really ride, and I mean really ride , told me there was three lengths difference between the best rider and the worst rider in Brisbane. If you factor those three lengths into punting on any race you soon realize how important a competent postilion is. By the way the chap who told me that lost an infamous AJC Derby on protest. I think what he said still rings true. Hard enough to back a winner without taking a short price with a second rate hoop on board.

It's hardly a revelation to say that a really good jockey is probably ( but not always) better for your chances than one who is not so good.

My comment really is that to quantify that difference is silly as it implies that  there is always a three length difference to your chances.

Yes but give a horse a good barrier and a bad jockey and just hope.

Steward leaves following review

The fallout from the controversial Craig Robertson ride at Echuca continues with one Racing Victoria steward who officiated at the April meeting no longer employed by the governing body.

RV chief executive Bernard Saundry and chairman of stewards Terry Bailey today both confirmed to G1X.com.au that Taylor Wilson is no longer part of the integrity department.

Wilson, one of the five member stewards panel at Echuca on April 10, finished with RV on August 15.

Joelene McSwain, the chairperson of the Echuca meeting, is currently on maternity leave until May 2017.

Bailey said the RV Integrity and RV Human Resources departments are conducting a review of “what transpired at Echuca that day in the Craig Robertson case.”

“This was a very serious matter and we are certainly reviewing what went wrong.”

Asked if Taylor’s departure from RV is linked with the review, Bailey said he could not comment.

Bailey said the review is continuing.

RV stewards sensationally withdrew charges against Robertson over his ride on Bolshoi Bandit at Echuca on April 10.

Two days before Robertson was due to appear before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board, RV stewards announced they had withdrawn the charges.

Robertson was charged under Rule 135 (a) and Rule 135 (b) in relation to his ride on Bolshoi Bandit in the Moama Bowling Club Handicap (1400m). Bolshoi Bandit, a $4.40 chance, finished last behind Easy Best.

Rule 135 (a) deals with a jockey not allowing a horse to run on its merits while Rule 135 (b) relates to a jockey not taking all reasonable and permissible measures to win or obtain the best possible placing.

Stewards at Echuca on April 10 questioned Robertson, who told them the horse was reluctant to begin and then hung in throughout the race, placing him at a disadvantage.

The stewards' report on the day said: “In the straight (Bolshoi Bandit) hung in despite the efforts of its rider and went to the line without being fully tested.”

A post-race veterinary examination revealed no abnormalities.

Stewards at Echuca took no further action, but several weeks later an inquiry was re-opened and stewards questioned Robertson at RV headquarters before adjourning the inquiry.

Charges were issued against Robertson on May 18.

Saundry provided a brief report on the departure of Wilson.

“We can confirm that Taylor Wilson is no longer employed by Racing Victoria,” Saundry said.

“The reasons for his departure are a matter between Racing Victoria and Taylor.”

Saundry said McSwain is still employed by RV and “thus we have no comment to make regarding her employment.”

Blake Shinn on Prized Icon in the Gloaming.

He had a chance to follow the leader and eventual winner but decided to come off the rails a long way out and track a longshot with another longshot outside him. Then decided to push and prod for ridiculous runs before ending up just a neck behind the winner in 4th place. Should have won easily.

If you want to see a complete shocker watch C Puls on a horse called Wheatsheaf Flyer in the Coleraine Cup Today. Should have gone close to winning. I know it sounds sexist but how the heck do some of these sheilas get licensed as "race " jockeys. I'll buy the fact that they can ride work but that surely shouldn't make them eligible to be race riders.

Just watched the replay Acer. The complete slaughter. She pulled its head off restraining it then went "via the cape " for reasons best known to herself on the home town. All that  despite there was a cutaway anyway. Totally incompetent. Can't wait to see what the stipes make of all that. Should not be allowed to ride at TAB tracks which is the point another correspondent has made above. As the late great Bert Bryant often said "should have won by as far as you could kick your hat "

Tim Clark showed once again why he'll never be elite with his ride on Southern Legend.

He was tied to instructions and didn't have the testicles to go forward when the horse jumped so well. He thought it was better to sit 4 deep a few lengths of the lead.

Agree . Pointing you horse's head up the backside of other horses is hardly giving it every chance to win. If he had adopted the strategy he eventually did in the last 200 metres the horse wins easily. The ride was either grossly incompetent or (b). The libel laws of the land prohibit me from the further explanation of " b". You have to wonder what these Stewards are watching. If a 3kg kid had ridden it they would have made a big song and dance of sending him back to apprentice school. Reminded me of a few rides of alleged champion jockey Bowmans' exhibitions on Caulfield Cup day. Or if the budding champ MacDonald on Painted Fireball later in the day at Geelong.

He should have stalked the first 3 and then peeled. It was more horse than jockey who won the race. Good fighting qualities.

His ride on Hartnell was actually quite good. Even though Hartnell was well beaten, I think he had the right idea to test Winx but she is in a world of her own.

Every jockey in today's Oaks bar B Avdulla.

Sectionals show the leader ran along slower than the Derby and Lexus the other day and finished slower. So why were the favourite and others in a different postcode?

Stewards' report - no questions asked, move along, nothing to see here.

Kids ride like that and they're sent back to the apprentice academy. Why not back to jockey school for a few of those masquerading as 'professional jockeys' (see the very inconsistent B Shinn's Twitter handle) today?

Only bloke who copped a penalty was the only bloke who rode a competent race.
