stewards report

Pick Me Up – from its wide barrier was steadied and shifted in behind runners shortly after the
start. In the early part of the straight had some difficulty secure clear running.

I take it from that that you're not a real happy rat.

I think you would have to go a long, long way to see a worse ride than the jockey on the champ Kitisan Black in the big race just run in Japan.

Sits 3 and 4 deep the entire journey with absolutely no ambition on the jockey to improve his position and you know the rest of the story. Be interested to see what the public reaction is in Japan from specialweek  :rant:

Sure was. The late big betting Brisbane bookie Brian Ogilvie wasn't a great form  man. One of his loves of life was to lay bad jockeys from wide barriers. At the risk of being sexist there is plenty of opportunity these days with so many ordinary jockeys riding in TAB races. The toppie in Race 5 at the Gold Coast this afternoon was a prime example. It is a system I follow these days and gee you have many more winning days than losing ones.

Dunno about a 'prime example", gun.

Barrier 6 is hardly 'wide'.

You are right JWS. I think it actually drew barrier 5 after scratchings and went around the outside fence. Totally useless. I meant to reference as well Race 6 at Ipswich on Friday. Same stable , same hoop and both diabolical. If J Byrne, J Lloyd, M Cahill , L Cassidy and plenty of others had ridden these two horses in this manner then the enquiries would still be going on. Why do they get a licence to ride in Races ? Should be barrier trials only on a Tuesday morning .

not sure about this one ?

Brisbane r7 Jim byrne , drawn 5 , nice , this horse can sit in the leading few

3 wide at the 1200 , 4 wide at the 800 , 5 wide at the turn     :sad:

something wrong with the inside , i don't think so

sucker jockeys ride , saw the other jockeys hunting wide ( in earlier races ) and put the dunces hat on

Raquel Clark Correct Call shocker. On the best horse in the race with plenty of opportunities to come to the outside yet sticks to the rail and runs into a wall of horses, just dumb...  :tin:

I look forward to reading the stewards' report for race 3 at Toowoomba today.

Heavily backed favourite was One Golden Day. Stable money was on.

Ridden by a 3kg kid named Nicholas Keal.

Fair to say it was one pretty sh*t day for all concerned.

Wow, grabbing hold to steady in the first 150 metres of a 870 metre race. Something doesn't smell right in the kitchen. Not the type of press young Nicholas Keal would want this early in his career.

Interesting to see the stewards response. At least 4 weeks back at apprentice school would be a start.

ONE GOLDEN DAY – After beginning well, the filly was unable to muster early speed and hung out throughout, proving difficult to ride.  Trainer B. Currie was advised that a warning will be placed on the horse’s racing manners.

I'm not sure whether the stewards saw the race. :chin:

The filly's racing manners were not where I'd have been placing the warning.

But we are dealing with Qld stewards. They're not known for their racing knowledge, forensic skills, general acuity or, it seems, eyesight.

@rat

Thought a smarter rider would show more initiative should have been shown to get the horse into more galloping room, which it clearly needs, in the first 400m of the race. Maybe i'm nitpicking an apprentice, they did do a fairly good job of hemming her in after that. Just frustrating watching this horse receive some average rides week after week this prep, must have walked under a ladder.

Ratsack makes some good points.

Anyone having a bet with an inexperienced 3kg claimer on board has to accept that an average ride will take place more often than not.

If young Nicholas Keal has issues controlling horses like this "hanging bitch of a thing" as quoted by Ratsack then maybe Nicholas Keal needs some additional tuition.

Nothing wrong with putting your hand up for support.

"At least 4 weeks back at apprentice school would be a start". As I stated in my original post.

At 15 I was going to be an apprentice jockey but I grew too quick.

I can assure you riding a 600 kilo thoroughbred that is well trained and behaved is a fantastic feeling but riding an unruly "bitch of a thing" is one the scariest things you can do.

Happy to cut young Nicholas Keal some leeway but please ask for some addition training so you can maximise your career.

The $2.40 tote favourite in the 3800m Wagga race today was ridden by a 4 kilo claiming apprentice.

Seemed to think it prudent to lead by 5 lengths (with a further 8-10 lengths back to the third horse) on the first lap as they approached the home turn, then grab hold of the horse and let it run in 3rd place during the second lap.

In fact it looked to me like the first two jockeys were actually racing each other from the start of the 3800m race and have had a late change of mind about the wisdom of that - or maybe they thought it was a joke race and they could do anything they liked  :/

I know 4 kg apprentices are learning their trade and should be given some leeway but that ride is not far off being "suspendable".

There is no stewards report posted at the time of writing.
