Only saw the replay but it appeared to me that he travelled well within hisself until asked for an effort in the straight when he spat the bit...it looked like he either won't try or he can't go any faster...was beaten 5.3L probably runs something like 1.12 for the distance...has to improve considerably to measure up to City class......might pay his way in the bush. :whistle:

He had a great win on  4th February 2012 then spelled and resumed on 26th April 2012.

My form says he was injured during that race. What was the problem that day? He's never been the same since.

Couldn't have been that serious as he raced 28 days later, but his numbers have never been anywhere near what they were prior to that run.

What was the injury on 26th April?

Well I hope the stewards whack a ban on this once former winner from racing.
A shadow of his former self.
He should be enjoying life out in a nice paddock somewhere .

I obviously completely ignorant regarding first hand information about this horse but the drop in performance since that injury in the race on April 26th 2012 stands out like a beacon.

Saw the replay, don't think he used to lead, did he?
Knocked up by the 300m which is a concern.

After another poor showing of this once handy galloper I went looking for a reason in the stewards report

HAVATRYST (M Palmer) over-raced during the early and middle stages of the event.


Doubt that is the reason. :chin:

If is anything like the Foreplay we had, leading is the wrong thing to do with them, heart weak as a pea ours, would need to be saved up and let sprint.  :rant:

 I didn't see the race but the results don't augur well for his future in this neck of the woods.......off to the bush or retirement seem the logical choices. :whistle:

I caught the replay. Settled up 3rd/4th but wide, looked to be going well enough & as soon as they straightened up, started losing ground. Jockey was trying to get him going but the horse slowly dropped out, btn 10L.

Either he's feeling some pain & slowing down to relieve it or he's worked out he doesn't really have to put in.
The only other thing I can think of is the track may be too hard for him & might need a dead/slow track.
Hard decision for the owners to make. Either retirement, a long break or try again & hope for a better barrier & a soft track.
I also note that 5 of the 6 races won have been 1st & 2nd up.  :chin:

Would be interested to know what the trainer & jockey had to say after the race.

el zoro,

There are a few horses with leg or joint problems capable of big runs first up ( wins in good grades ) that quickly lose that form when the leg problem shows itself again.

However there are plenty more horses that have gone sour and bludge.

I've just stumbled across this post. I Know the lady that owns Havatryst since retiring after his last race in 2014. Just curious whether anyone knows what injuries he had during his racing career?
