The Flemington track is a major failure IMO.
Rail out 4 metres today it and looked like the jockeys didn't want to get really wide, so lots of unlucky runners all day......Derby trial was just that for some runners.....just a trial.
The profile of the track not only causes so many injuries and breakdown in horses but it rarely presents as a fair surface.
Good story today for the Hobson stable with their Yulong outcast, Yulong Storm.
4 wins and a 2nd from 5 starts for the son of Scat Daddy since leaving the Snowdens.
$9,500 purchase from the April Inglis online sale .......very well done to all concerned
