Vet Notes

  • Tavistock Dancer (NZ) (Race 2) - A post‑race veterinary examination revealed the gelding to be lame in the off hind leg. A veterinary certificate is required prior to racing again.

Mr Gustavo (NZ) shall not start in any race until the Stewards have received a satisfactory veterinary report. The report must include the results of an ECG performed at rest and cardiac auscultation performed within 30 minutes of completing a satisfactory gallop of at least 1000 metres.

Penalties & Fines

  • Andrew Mallyon (Sweet Jazz) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under the provisions of AR131(a), the carelessness being that near the 300 metres, he permitted his mount to shift out when insufficiently clear of Graceful Storm which resulted in that filly being tightened out onto Angel Lass and having to be checked. Andrew Mallyon had his licence to ride in races suspended for a period to commence midnight 3 July 2019 to expire midnight 13 July, a total of 10 race meetings (3 metropolitan, 7 provincial). In assessing penalty, Stewards took into account his guilty plea, candid evidence, good record and that the carelessness was in the mid-range.
