Tragic

Why didn't they let him ride in a Group One then tell him?

I agree.

It will also affect the other jockeys as well.

Very very sad.

I know what your aying OL, but the race means nothing. Stewards were informed by the police who arrived on track .

Seriously not a choice the stewards can make.

Very sad for the family.

From what TVN said he has been working at a stable in the mornington area.  Only what I heard and could be why he was in the area.

doesn't really matter.

Poor kid

I'm staggered they are letting him ride.
What if he has a melt down mid race?

The stewards should have stood him down.

Should not have given him the option.

The odd thing is, the car accident happened at 7 am this morning according to channel 9.

Stewards should have have stood him down, for sure. Unbelievable.

The issue for the Stewards shouldn't br Craig Newitt, but rather could his possible state of mind be a danger to the other jockeys.

Can't believe they are letting him ride either.

That is odd, Newitt wouldn't have even been near to on his way to the track at that time

This is sport and jockeys i guess like other sportsman get themselves into a zone, and he has somehow been able to blank it out. He was probably in a state of mind for the ride ahead and was able to put it to the back of the mind for a little while.

He is probably an absolute reck now.

Brave and good ride.

I just wish they had told him before he even got to the track... Just wish he had held on... I know they gotta ride their horses out but if I were Craig Williams I would of let him have it... sounds bad but I'm pretty sure most ppl out there wanted to see him win!

Agree with u Big Wheel...shouldn't have done that :(

Neither he, nor anyone else, could have ridden a better race.

So the stewards did the right thing letting him ride.

As for second-guesses about the time of the accident etc etc, why not wait till the facts are revealed?
