Sadly the 2020 Cup will be like the 2015 and 2018 Cups..... when you watch the replay there is the part that is coming that you don't want to see.
The Flemington track has to be called out for what it is when firm.....a brutal racing surface and has been that way since the 'major renovation'!
Watching the Epsom Derby winner go up in the air like that will be hard for Vic Racing to overcome.....a lot of eyes on the Cup around the world today.
While you have a bit of sympathy for them...... 9mm of irrigation is applied in the morning but just goes straight through to the crushed bluestone beneath.....the track was never designed with horse welfare first and foremost in mind.
It's regular viewing, sadly, watching horses struggling across the line on a good 3 at Flemington.
Hard to miss Harbour Views looking to have a problem in the following race and yet there is another OTI horse many lengths behind him
