Stewards  report on two form reversals yesterday plus other issues .


FIRST CRUSH – Trainer C. Munce was questioned regarding the improved performance of the gelding. Mr Munce stated at its first 2 runs this preparation it had pleased the stable however, he could not offer any excuses for the gelding at its previous start at the Gold Coast. Mr Munce added he elected to freshen up FIRST CRUSH and drop it back in distance from 1800m to 1600m and possibly the give in the track today may have contributed to the performance.

Was never in it last run and only plodded home hard to back yesterday on that but it firmed from 16 to 11 might have been longer early in the week trainer ‘s explanation seemed surprised .......somebody expected an improvement yesty always travelling well just behind the leaders in contrast to its previous run out the back...pity stewards didn't (maybe they did) question betting moves....but forgot to mention it. :o

CONTRALTO – At the entrance to the straight had to alter course to obtain clear running. When questioned regarding the improved performance trainer M. Dunn stated he was disappointed with the ride at the mares previous start when caught wide throughout. Mr Dunn added the mare may be better suited when ridden back in the field as it was today. Mr Dunn further added that prior to the mares previous start it had missed a start and may have lacked fitness.

It was gone 600 out race 6. lacked fitness was an understatement.

Protest & jockeys slanging match

Stewards considered an objection lodged by App R. Ride the rider of ROSIE POSIE which finished fourth against DESMONS PRIDE (App B. Thornton) being declared the winner alleging  interference for some distance after the 700m and again approaching the 200m. On the evidence it was established that after the 800m ROSIE POSIE obtained a one off position which resulted in DESMONS PRIDE being 3 wide. Then from a point near the 700m until near the 400m both horses made continuous contact due mainly to both horses jostling. As a result of this contact App B. Thornton (DESMONS PRIDE) lost the use of his right stirrup for a short distance just prior to straightening. They further considered that the interference near the 300m was as a result of STONECAST shifting out. As they were of the view that the jostling that occurred as a result of mutual contact between the 2 horses they determined that the protest be dismissed. Both riders were advised that the level of competitiveness, in the opinion of stewards, bordered on being improper.
 
At a subsequent inquiry App B. Thornton (DESMONS PRIDE) and App R. Ride (ROSIE POSIE) were both fined $200 for the manner in which they conducted themselves during the protest hearing.

Finally Tony Gollan gets off the hook after some comments he made to L Tarrant's racing manager.
GENERAL
Following the running of Race 6 jockey L. Tarrant lodged a complaint with stewards against trainer T. Gollan relating to alleged comments made by Mr Gollan in the members area towards jockey Tarrants manager Ms M. Adams-Smith. Following an apology tendered by Mr Gollan to both jockey Tarrant and Ms Adams-Smith their complaint was formerly withdrawn on record. Nonethless Mr Gollan was advised that as this was not the first time his conduct had come under notice or been reported to stewards and he was reminded of his obligations as a licensed person to conduct himself at all times in a professional manner.

BRISBANE RACING AGAIN DEGENERATING INTO A FARCE FOR PUNTERS’

PERCY the PUNTER and his MATES have their say on BRISBANE RACING and it isn’t complimentary of the STEWARDS:

‘MY mates and I are keen punters and we wrote to the WHINGE some time ago telling our story about how we had decided to ban betting on Brisbane racing because we felt it was ‘too hot’.

Well we had a rethink and with the Magic Millions coming made a New Year resolution to try again. Sadly that lasted only a few weeks.

We were pretty pissed about the Magic Millions and how the stewards basically gave that jockey a slap on the wrist for knocking more than half the field down.

The real reason for our disappointment though was that we had backed the runner-up Fullazaboot at its previous start only to see it slaughtered and little was said about the ride where a top jockey missed the start and sat wide in a weaker race.

We then had to watch while the horse we backed in the Millions all but got put through the rails and here was Fullazaboot storming home for second at huge odds. Makes you wonder how far he should have won his previous start by.

Some of the group was a bit forgiving after that and we pressed on with our punting syndicate until last Saturday which was the final straw. We were on the perennial bridesmaid Slydini only to see it get beaten by form reversal winner First Crush.

We were on this horse at its previous start at the Gold Coast when it went like a mule. Out it comes improves a furlong and beats a far better field. Of course trainer Chris Munce was bewildered by the form turnaround just as he was with a stable middle distance runner that got beaten out of sight in a weaker race at Ipswich then came out and won at big odds in town a few weeks back. The difference this time was that they didn’t forget to back First Crush.

What got right up our noses was the way the racing media helped brush this whole form reversal under the carpet. Instead of starting his interview with Munce on SKY with a question about the massive improvement of First Crush, Michael Maxworthy only wanted to talk about how well Larry Cassidy was riding. Munce, sensing some reaction to the form reversal even considering the lack of action ever taken by the blind men with the cane in the room, was quickly on the defensive. The horse had shocked him how badly it went at the Gold Coast. Its two previous runs were terrific and he freshened it up. The stewards, of course, swallowed that excuse – as they always do when one of the ‘pet shop boys’ is in the ‘hot seat’  – like Tony Gollan after his abuse of a jockey manager later in the day – and send them on their way with apologies for disturbing their day.

The hard-hitting Nathan Exelby (of The Courier & Sunday Mail) wasn’t to be outdone in a nice ‘suck up’ to Munce after Expertea won the middle distance race which many thought had a bit of a smell about it. In that report on a stable double he declared: ‘Punters were on the ball backing First Crush from morning odds of $26 to start at $11.’ Those supposed ‘punters’ had to be stable inspired. No-one who did the form could have backed First Crush with that sort of confidence. And we noticed that ‘form expert’ Nathan didn’t include it in his specials which as usual were pretty ordinary.

And on the subject of the Expertea race it firmed from an early Fixed Odds quote of $8 to $4.6. The original short priced favorite Kirini settled much further back from a wide draw than it did at its previous start and ended up blowing like a gale to $4.8 before running on moderately to finish fourth. Perhaps it’s a coincidence but have you noticed the number of favorites top jockey Michael Cahill gets beaten on? I guess you can’t help bad luck. And by the way the Waller-trained stablemate of Kirini – Mazaz – came from 12th to finish 2nd to Expertea and there was backing for it at big odds. Might I suggest stewards should have opened an inquiry into this race – but as usual they didn’t which comes as no surprise.

Another Waller-trained, Cahill ridden favorite in Iowa failed to reproduce its good recent form and never got any closer than eighth to form reversal winner Contralto. Iowa incidentally drifted from $2.6 to $4.4 – someone thought it couldn’t win.

The only short priced favorite to win on the nine-race card was Desmon’s Pride. Three of the winners were at double figure odds. The punters must be awful judges in Brisbane. Either that or we desperately need a new panel of stewards. My mates and I won’t be back betting on Brisbane until the latter applies – so that probably means never.’

I love how Percy and his syndicate mates blame everybody involved in racing but themselves for not backing the right horses Sat.

It wasn't hard to find winners at decent prices.

Snicki Minaj won a barrier trial by 5 lengths ran OK in its first race ( it's a 2yo don't forget ) then came out and won as fave Sat in race 1

Bat a Kat up til Sat had 8-3-5-0 formline , now 9-4-5-0 how do you miss that? How are the stewards responsible?

Tarzan has won 4 of last 5 starts ( blundered the start in the other one ) Bloody stewards!

Plus Ubet had a money back offer for fixed run 2nd or 3rd on the first 5 races up to $50.  If you couldn't forge a winning day with all that on your side god help you!

I know of one forumite who took a bat a kat and Tarzan double at $31 for a nice collect- but is bleating about getting unders. I backed both aforementioned horses myself fixed at unders then more at jump for a healthy collect and got the Tarzan Exacta to boot

Some punters really are their own worst enemy, it was an easy picking day., but you keep blaming everyone else Percy, come back anytime we like your money here in Qld , there was plenty of late drifts all day.

Arsenal , thanks for letting me know it is Valentines Day! Apparently it is because of the new found "heat policy " . Some baboon at RQ on Monday must have heard it was going to be a hot day in Brisbane Today and the races were transferred to Friday. The do gooders now run the show. Gee I trust there were no stock horses at work around Windorah Today. Wonder how those Arab horses go in the Desert. This mob here are not capable of growing grass in Summer so it shouldn't be a surprise about anything that happens under their jurisdiction.

Houtzen has performed well in trackwork and Toby Edmonds will be sending her to Sydney to resume in The Fireball Stks on Saturday 3rd March.

Her main aim will be the Sangster Stakes in Adelaide on May 5th.

I don't know why they bother bringing Sam Hyland up to Brisbane for the Winter I find him very irritating....yesterday though he was quite hilarious falling off the pony not once but twice....he fell off then tried to remount unsuccessfully and bit the dust again ...fortunately he wasn't injured...Bernie is much better IMO.

This race replay from Doomben yesterday with winner overcoming difficulties to score.....RED CHASE brilliant finish and ARRIBA looked unlucky softened up by a no hoper and battled on extra well good ride by Ronnie Stewart who deserves more and better opportunities.

Just 10 days ago Red Chase started at $81 when he finished 5th at Caloundra in 1000M maiden race.

He was then backed into $4.20 yesterday.

Shane Shield was the jockey at the Sunshine Coast

I'm thinking he probably got a substantial sling from the Connections after yesterday's performance.

No surprise stewards asked for a please explain after Bel Burgess improved massively on its two previous runs in class 6 to win R5 a good class Benchmark 80 at the Sunny Coast yesty...it did have some weight relief and an increase in distance from the two beforehand.

Ridden by Jeff LLoyd at its previous two runs it was never likely ....it ran 6th on 4 th Aug in a Class 6 over 1350m starting at $26 ......its previous run ran it last on 21 July after showing early speed stewards report that day was that "Stewards will interview J. Lloyd regarding his riding of the gelding over the final stages " the horse dropped out and Jeff didn't punish it when he was obviously well beaten.

Race 5: CLINIC ONE BENCHMARK 80 H’CAP – 1400M
 
BEL BURGESS – Trainer D. Murphy was questioned regarding the horse’s seemingly improved performance. He indicated that he had expected a forward showing in today’s event as he had anticipated the track having more give than at its two most recent starts. He added that the horse has performed well previously racing on similar surfaces. He further added that the gelding was able to obtain the lead without being challenged today and he believed that this was also beneficial to the horse’s chances. He indicated that he had supported the horse in today’s event as he believed that having a 3kg claiming apprentice was also a significant factor.

The difference according to the trainer was attributed to the track conditions being more suitable ...it was a Good 4 pentrometer 6.35 whereas the two previous runs over 1350 were rated a good 3 ...all the horse's previous wins were on good tracks ...the trainer is obviously a better judge than most punters....came in from $14 to $10
