One very lucky trainer ?
RACE 1: Lansdowne Handicap 1400m:
Trainer Mr C Waller informed Stewards that he had been advised at approximately 1 pm by a
stable foreperson in his employ, but currently interstate on leave, that American Crew had been
the subject of an administrative error in that, as a late nomination for this race, the gelding had
been routinely treated last Saturday with a view to racing this Saturday, 13 November 2010.
Acting on this advice, Stewards acceded to a request to withdraw American Crew at 1.11pm prior
to the commencement of betting. The matter was adjourned so that the stable employee can be
interviewed. The start was delayed when Mossamine required farrier attention to the offside front
shoe. Druid jumped awkwardly. Lemieux was slow to begin.
