One of the great country Victorian traditions is the Warrnambool Carnival.

Certainly a different feel this year without the Weir stable but I had to chuckle as they hit the line in the time honored Brierly Steeple and Rick Mcintosh blurts out and it's Bit of A Lad in the reverse Weir colours ....

"That's improper riding" - trainer accuses jockey in Brierly Steeple protest

Article Author
Brad Waters


Trainer Symon Wilde accused champion jumps jockey Steven Pateman of “improper riding” during the protest hearing that decided Tuesday’s Brierly Steeplechase (3450m) at Warrnambool.

Pateman’s mount Bit Of A Lad held off the game Gold Medals to score by 1-1/2 lengths but the runner-up’s jockey Clayton Douglas fired in a protest against the winner, alleging interference at the 800m and after clearing the second last jump.

Gold Medals’s trainer Wilde told stewards Pateman deliberately stopped Douglas going up on his inside after clearing the third-last jump.

Douglas had to ease Gold Medals to ensure he stayed outside the marker pegs at that point.

“Look at his elbow. He put his arm out to stop him taking the run. He’s nearly put him over the fence,” Wilde told stewards.

“That’s improper riding.”

Pateman said the leader Newbury contributed to the incident when he shifted in to save ground on the turn approaching the final two jumps.

Pateman also said Gold Medals had his chance to run down the winner in the straight.

“Newbury shifted in at the second last and took my running as well,” Pateman said.

“I believe I’ve stopped riding for two strides and been hampered as well.”

Stewards conceded Gold Medals was tightened twice but could not be certain the incidents cost Gold Medals the 1 ½ lengths he finished from the winner.

Bit Of A Lad’s win completed a huge turnaround in fortunes for some of his owners, who had a scare earlier in the day.

The Wilson family, who are part of the large band of owners of Bit Of A Lad, watched as paramedics fought to save the life of a family friend, who had travelled to enjoy a day at the races with them.

The man suffered a suspected heart attack and was revived with a defibrillator before being flown to Geelong hospital in a stable condition.


A good betting move also came unstuck in the Brierly Steeplechase.

Punters backed the John Wheeler-trained Macklemore from as high as $12 to start at $5.50 but the Kiwi jumper failed to beat a runner home.

Wheeler said Macklemore mixed his jumps and lost confidence at an important stage of the race. The trainer said Macklemore would not run in Thursday’s Grand Annual.

Wilde said he would assess Gold Medals’ recovery from the Brierly Steeplechase before deciding whether the grand performer would defend his Grand Annual crown.

I thought in the run it was a great ride by Pateman, everywhere he went he seemed to save ground and it probably made the difference in the end.

It just makes sense doesn’t it ;)

Interesting race the Galleywood   emthup

Not sure he should be $2.15 as you've got to give chances to Goodwood Zodiac & Big Blue, even Lucques wouldn't be out of the picture if the fav makes a mistake.

I'll just be watching them go around.

I do like Innkeeper in the Wangoom ticks plenty of boxes with track, distance & 2nd up with chances to Maher pair Engiman & Grey Shadow.

If the rain comes then Jungle Edge comes into play  :chin:

Race 10 - 14 Northern River was a slaughter job over the Oakbank carnival, looks to atone here.

I don't know anything about jumping  technique but watching this bloke today I could discern the difference between  a good (maybe great) jumper and an average one.

On a quick count I've got it 5 winners for the Weir stable over the 3 days  :shy: culminating in Furrion winning the Cup  :no1:
