I notice they have taken Hijack Hussey off him and sent it to Darren Weir.

Fair to say he lost his way with her towards the end.

Trainer Tony Gollan says test flawed as he appeals $8000 fine and conviction for positive swab
 
NATHAN EXELBY, The Courier-Mail

September 18, 2016 5:00pm
 
THE lawyer acting for Tony Gollan has questioned the process of Queensland Racing Integrity Commission stewards as he attempts to have a decision against the premier trainer overturned.

Gollan was fined $8000 last week and his horse Amexed stripped of a $65,000 race win at Ipswich after a positive test to the substance prednisolone.

Gollan has lodged an appeal to QRIC’s Internal Review system, where he will argue the testing procedure was flawed.

It is understood the test carried out on Amexed’s urine was similar to that of the cobalt case involving trainer Lyn Paton, whereby both the A and B samples were tested at the same laboratory, the Albion-based Racing Science Centre.

Paton’s disqualification was overturned by the Racing Disciplinary Board, which ruled “the evidence provided as proof of the existence of the prohibited substance was fundamentally flawed and unreliable to justify a finding of guilt”.

There was a similar finding in the case of Rochelle Smith, which continued a long line of cobalt sentences overturned by the RDB on the grounds that the testing procedures did not comply with the Australian Rules of Racing.

While Gollan’s case is at the opposite end of the penalty spectrum to cobalt, his lawyer Peter Boyce, who acted for the family of Daniel Morcombe, argues it should be thrown out on the same grounds.

“There has been a clear finding that is contrary to what the stewards have handed down by a higher body than them,” Boyce said.


“We are simply running with what has already been ruled on. For us, it’s clear. It’s not palatable that they can ignore relevant decisions made by a higher authority.”

But Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner Ross Barnett said QRIC will appeal the RDB ruling in the Paton case to QCAT and therefore defended the decision of stewards to prosecute other similar cases.

“Until we get a result from QCAT on that matter we will proceed as normal with other matters that occurred before July 1,” Barnett said.

Boyce has also questioned whether Kane Ashby, who will preside over the internal review, has a conflict of interest owing to his involvement as a witness in the VCAT hearings of trainers Danny O’Brien and Mark Kavanagh.

“They need to make sure the person working on the review is not contaminated at all by that (VCAT) process,” Boyce said. “If it’s not satisfactory, we’re off to QCAT.”

Barnett dismissed the notion that Ashby has a conflict, pointing out the hearings are being conducted in different jurisdictions



Obviously he has a chance ....it's a narrow point both tests done at the same Lab....why have two tests if the second isn't done at a different Lab than the first.

Tony had the most winners at the two day Rocky carnival and won hisself a $30K ute...coming to the last race today he was on 12 points two ahead of Ben Currie and Lindsay Hatch.... Currie's horse tried hard and Lindsay's was close up but never looked a winning chance the last winner was trained by Tony McMahon who I think is the race caller.

Yes some genius at 4 TAB sacked Mc Mahon to give the other bloke the job years ago. They are renowned for their enlightened management.

Too soon for Gollan to move on
NATHAN EXELBY

PREMIER trainer Tony Gollan has watered down suggestions he has plans to move interstate, confirming last night he is committed to Queensland racing for the next few years.

In the wake of news that Racing NSW had plans to develop a super training centre in the Southern Highlands, Gollan said it would be foolish to ignore such developments, but suggestions of him being on the move were premature.

“It’s an exciting concept and something that might appeal to me in a few years’ time if I felt it could be achievable,” Gollan said.

“But there’s a lot of ‘ifs’. There’s not even a plot of land at the moment.

“I am firmly entrenched in Brisbane and I am looking forward to the season ahead.

“My ambition right now is to take horses to Sydney and Melbourne carnivals, hopefully win a few more Group 1s, and be competitive from my Eagle Farm base.”

Gollan said his best chances of success at Doomben tomorrow were Hectopascal and Macewen, who he tipped to go through the grades this preparation.

Tony has multiple runners at the Sunshine Coast this week but only one for Jimmy Byrne....... he's not out of favour after last week JB rode Jonker a big shortener which landed the plunge...it was one of three Gollan runners in the race and had trialled very well beforehand as shown on the Final Gallop.....but it wasn't Tony's top tip in the race he went for KRONE which was never a chance in a very hard race ........all his runners were widely drawn but JONKER broke Takeover Target's track record....be interesting to see tonight's episode.

Very good day for Tony Gollan yesty at Doomben 4 winners from 4 races...Leadership Spill......Miami Fleiss, Socialising and Garibaldi  all up SP  returned 12.25 ...he collected two winners at the GC one he declared Vaporizing the other War's End started @$26 might have got under their guard...and a good day for Jimbo Byrne with 3 winners and 4 seconds two of which went down in a photo.

Tony thinks ISOTOPE is better this Saturday than when she won at Rosehill 3 weeks ago....... Ryan Maloney has to get down to 54.5 to make the weight but Tony opines he'll do it comfortably ...ISOTOPE is a very plain looking filly IMO but she has a big motor and racing isn't a beauty contest.

 Tony Gollan's thoughts on his runners are publicly available each Thursday afternoon on Vimeo and is well worth checking out.

Isotope looked a bit stiff yesterday.

But I think it were more a case of a good ride by McDonald rather than a poor one by Maloney.

Stewards after some urging from LGHR completed their inquiry into ISOTOPE dropping the rider which led their report from Doomben yesterday

"16TH JANUARY 2021 – GOLD COAST – MAGIC MILLION 3YO GUINEAS – 1400M
 
Stewards today concluded an inquiry into the reasons for ISOTOPE’s rider R Maloney being dislodged in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas. After viewing the available patrol films and interviewing riders R Maloney (ISOTOPE) and G Boss (AWAY GAME), it was established that when rounding the turn, ISOTOPE rolled out slightly and clipped the heels of AWAY GAME, resulting in ISOTOPE blundering and its rider being dislodged. As Stewards could not be satisfied that any party were fully at fault, the incident was reported as a racing incident and no further action was taken."

ENDS

Yesty Tony started of with Tiger Heart winning a good class 2yo ... followed up with Tavion Prince scoring in race 3...... he didn't give it any wrap in his weekly Final Gallop program but there was good money for it a big shortener...... Purroni ran on very strongly in R4 and is soon due....... but his best chance Good Soize just missed a place in R6 and  Royal Hale scrambled into third in a good class B85 behind the good thing of the day for those with money left SKINS with a great ride by pick up jock Jim Byrne.
Quite a poor day for the CM expert tipsters from 9 races no winners until 2 of the 3 stabbed Skins in the last started 10/9 on.
Outback Barbie took on a high class field at Randwick and ran a great race to finish 4th only 1.2L from the winner.
She ran the fastest last sectional all day 0.32.79 providing she holds her form look out Winter Carnival.

I think Snappy Reply was tipped as his best provincial chance it was favourite in  race 7 at the Sunny Coast yesty started very short showed a lot of speed but caught wide but ran out of puff when the pressure was applied and blow me down here comes the stablemate Shamatom @$18 from near last to blow them all away.
Here's what the stewards said .............SHAMATON – Trainer T Gollan was fined $100 for the late declaration of B Thompson as the rider.
 

SNAPPY REPLY – Raced three wide without cover throughout.  Performed below market expectations. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the filly to have Cardiac Arrythmia. The stable representative was advised that the horse shall not start in a race until the Stewards have received a veterinary clearance including the results of an ECG and must official trial in the presence of Stewards. A post-race swab was also taken for analysis.

Gollan’s stars find second life

TRENTON AKERS

PREMIER trainer Tony Gollan is looking to add another feather to his cap, this time with the enigmatic Graff when the frustrating speedster has his first start for his new stable in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000.

Gollan has enjoyed much success with new stable acquisitions, winning at stakes level with Krone, Jonker, Baller and Vega One recently.

Vega One will join Graff in the $1 million feature, while Gollan is attempting to get Jonker to the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup in two weeks after he was forced to scratch from the 10,000 because of leg issues.

The five-year-old flies firstup, and Gollan says there is no question as to his ability, it is just a matter of whether his mind is on the job.

“He has good ability – the horse can really gallop, it is just a matter of getting his mind right on the day which history says hasn’t always been easy,” he said.

“The main thing is that he has good ability – which he does – you can’t manufacture that so it is just a matter of getting him to switch on for race day, if he does he is a live chance but if he wants to go out there and go through the motions, that is what he’ll do.

“Hopefully a change of scenery and a new environment can get that out of him on Saturday.”

Gollan said there is no secret method to getting the new stable changes to fire for him, rather a case of the horses enjoying their new environment.

“We have had a bit of luck with them for a fair while really, that is the nature of the beast when you train up here,” he said.

“You get these horses from down south who had good form and just lost their way a bit, you give them a change in scenery and a lot of the time a lesser grade and off you go.

“I don’t think we do anything extra special when it comes to them but we have had a bit of luck getting horses off other stables.”

After filling the first two placings in the race with Spirit Of Boom and Temple Of Boom in 2014, Gollan believes his team of Graff and Vega One represent his strongest 10,000 hand since then.

“It would be my strongest hand in it since then and if Jonker had have been sound it would have been my best team,” he said.

“The market tells you Jonker was my best chance but it wasn’t to be.”

Meanwhile, the Brisbane Racing Club has awarded life membership to former Courier-Mail journalist Peter Howard for his work with the Thoroughbred Racing History Association, where he served as president since 2015.

Howard has been a longtime contributor to The Courier-Mail, and it is under his leadership the TRHA gained government recognition as a provider of valuable heritage services to the racing industry.

ENDS

It'll be a another massive  feather in his Cap if Graff lives up to its potential......this horse has been a big disappointment after showing such early promise...I'll be an onlooker this time ..he's had too many chances for me.

Tony's tips on his video show The Final Gallop were spot on today BALLER he said was his best chance it bolted in ..I didn't like it and left it alone

Then in the  last with two runners Mass destruction and roughie SETANTA he preferred it over MD they ran the quinella in a very close finish.
 I was on Setanta for the place only my pick Tramonto ran out of his skin third  and looked all over a winner until a few strides before the post .
