Been a while . . more than 180 days the 'tell-tale' pop-up warns . .
Moranbah raced last Saturday . .
And they were getting up 'without saddlecloths' . .
Well not quite getting up; but they were racing without them . . almost
Acceptances were at all time levels, and most races had emergencies, which is where the problem arose. There was not a saddlecloth "12" to be found (probably hadn't been used since Magic last attended)
So poor old Dawn Moon had to make do with another one turned inside-out, or upside-down, or whatever . .
Alas for the omen punters the gear change was not propitious, with DM finishing an unlucky 13 lengths astern . . too far off for the historic event to be recorded on celluloid
