Weir fined $5000 for incorrect horse identification
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy   6:15pm

Leading trainer Darren Weir has been fined $5000 after pleading guilty to a charge of making a false or misleading statement or declaration relating to a Ballarat jump-out last month.
Weir was charged under AR 175 (gg) that stipulates stewards may penalise:

‘’Any person who makes any false or misleading statement or declaration in respect of  any matter in connection with the administration or control of racing.’’

The particulars of the charge we

‘’On August 3, Mr Weir did, via email from stable staff to the Ballarat Turf Club, falsely and misleadingly declare the name of seven horses, those being Spicer, Pelonomena, Kragle, Bindabooberri, French Fry, Ancient Echoes and Mio Nipotina, as having jumped out at Ballarat on 1 August in specific heats.

‘’As a result, the jump out information provided to the public for these heats was incorrect.

‘’Mr Weir’s actions, as listed above, constitutes a false and misleading declaration under AR175(gg).

‘’During the inquiry it was established that the correct horse identities were as follows:

Horse listed as Spicer in Heat 1 was Imperial Edition
Horse listed as Pelonomena in Heat 1 was Diamond Diva
Horse listed as Kragle in Heat 3 was Masterbrax
Horse listed as Bindabooberri in Heat 3 was Rewarding Girl
Horse listed as French Fry in Heat 7 was Holy Freeze
Horse listed as Ancient Echoes in Heat 7 was Buck Bay
Horse listed as Mio Nipotina in Heat 11 was Vogue Empress
‘’Mr Weir plead guilty to the charge and Stewards acting under LR 6C(2A) fined him the sum of $5000.

‘’In assessing the matter, stewards took into account Mr Weir’s guilty plea, evidence during the inquiry, that an initial email to the Ballarat Turf Club gave weight to the evidence that the offence was not premeditated, the circumstances surrounding the incident and the fact that the incident has the ability to erode the confidence of the industry.

‘’Stewards further wish to remind trainers that as of Monday, October 1, they must ensure that any horse nominated in jump outs which are listed in the Inside Racing publication must be correctly named and identified.ENDS

Stewards report that this communication was not premeditated but  their report contains no elaboration on the explanation that they would have sought from the trainer please explain.

Is this the $7 million carrot to entice Winx overseas?

Clinton Payne Article Author

The owners of the Pegasus World Cup have introduced a new $US7 million turf race with a view to attracting “the best older turf horses from around the world” – Australia’s own Winx sitting at the top of their desired guest list.

The 1900m Grade 1 race will be run alongside the Pegasus World Cup, which has had it’s prizemoney reduced from $US16 million to $US9 million and held at Gulfstream Park on Australia Day, January 26.

“The appetite for a turf race is strong and the decision to include a premier turf race is part of the ongoing evolution of the Pegasus World Cup,” Belinda Stronach, chairman and president of The Stronach Group said.

“We are excited to expand this event for both horse owners and fans, adding to what is already an incredible day of entertainment and world-class racing at Gulfstream Park.”

The Stronach Group says 12 slots will be sold at $US500,000 each and the race will carry a winner’s purse of $US3 million.

“As an international owner I am thrilled that the Pegasus World Cup will include a turf race,” Coolmore boss John Magnier said.

“Coolmore, like The Stronach Group, believes in growing our sport and there is no better way to do that than to provide a new platform to showcase the world’s best thoroughbreds.”

Previously Winx’s trainer Chris Waller has indicated a desire to showcase Winx in other parts of the world.

This race appears to be placed at a time when it could be done after Winx attempts to rewrite Australian racing record books, chasing her unrivalled fourth win in a Cox Plate in October.

“I'd be lying if I said I didn't have regrets for not going with Winx,” Waller said in June after declining to take her to Royal Ascot for the Queen Anne Stakes.

Last Saturday Winx won her 27th consecutive race in the Group I George Main Stakes. It was her 29th black-type victory and broke Sunline’s Australasian record for Stakes wins.

Winx currently holds Australian racing records of the most consecutive wins, the most Group I wins (20) and the most prizemoney earned.

Victory in her next two starts will see Winx eclipse Kingston Town’s record of three Cox Plate wins and she will become the greatest earner in international racing history.


Certainly the right distance and at the right time.  Might be interesting.

Comments appreciated on the above races, I left a couple of the Sydney races out due to being only 7 staters before possible scratchings.
