    Watching her, I cannot see that at all. She kept asking it for an effort after it started losing ground, IMO if she feared a collapsing horse she would have pulled it right inside the markers. I don't want her suspended but she has to be told she cannot do that

    No mention of going inside pegs. I would like to think the AF determination saved her - although there seems no reason for her not to have pulled up outside the pegs. If a horse gives an indication that it could collapse - that is a different matter. Otherwise in the future we are in danger of seeing an unscrupulous stable pull a leader inside the pegs to let a well supported stablemate through and then claim they thought .........

    I didn't spot this one from last Saturday at Melton and you won't find it in the Stewards Report (minimal Peter Chadwick fare) but PP is asking why not?
    Have a look at the start of R2
    Chris Svanosio trained/Ross Payne driven fav Aroha Koe (2) had the 1x1 on the back of Chris Svanosio trained and driven Anywhere Hugo (3) in the death but Ross Payne goes around him to the death, after which the longer shot could not have hoped for a better trail all the way

    Stewards on the ball, should have at least been asking why?

    PP reckons this was intentional and to do with an off track issue (and aimed at the winner who was coming 3 wide). If that was the case 5 weeks should have been 5 years

    Stewards issued a charge under R168(1)(b) against Michael Smith (JESSIES SON). The specifics of the charge being that driver M Smith did not, at any time check his drive away from HORSE OF COURSE whilst it was in a break approaching the home turn on the final occasion, resulting in severe interference to HORSE OF COURSE and other trailing runners in the race. Smith was found guilty as charged.

    In the opinion of the Stewards, driver M Smith had been reckless in taking no action to avoid interference when he had ample time to check his drive inwards. In issuing penalty Stewards took into account the seriousness of the incident and Smiths previous good driving record under this Rule when imposing a suspension of 5 weeks.

    It looked deliberate through my eyes. No attempt was made to check or even steer the horse.

    PP is highlighting/lowlighting the fact that the starter at Bathurst was the trainer and owner of the winner. Clearly in breach of the rules!
    However I cannot see his problem with the start as you regularly see horses failing to take up their positions and if there is nothing drawn behind them then too bad

    Newcastle R.10 Friday 21/07

    RACE 10 – SKY RACING ACTIVE PACE – 1609 metres

    Prior to the declaration of all clear, Stewards looked to review the reasons for number 5 ARTISTIC SCOTT competing with saddle cloth number 7 and in turn number 7 KOZACZYNSKI going out with saddle cloth number 5. It was established post-race that these runners had gone out in the incorrect saddlecloths unnoticed and therefore started from the incorrect barrier positions. After taking evidence from starter M Parkes, stable representative D Standen and Drivers M Formosa and T Ison, Stewards under AHHR 64 disqualified ARTISTIC SCOTT and KOZACZYNSKI for starting from the incorrect barriers. An inquiry into the reasons for these runners having the incorrect saddlecloth was adjourned to a time and date to be fixed. Stewards also will furnish a report to management of Harness Racing NSW for internal review of the incident.

    You will notice that they have not put up the photo of the finish as first across the line was disqualified

    This is very strange and a stuff up by not only the stable mixing up two of their runners but also the stewards in not detecting it until after the running.
    They did not just have the wrong saddlecloths on and start from the wrong barriers - they had the wrong drivers on and I am thinking (from PP's early post on the race) that they went out in the other horses gear - a total misidentification of horses

    Your latter thought reflects mine Kev. Aaron Goadsby was in QLD with horses, the hired help (or should that be HELP!!!) in charge of things at Newcastle just stuffed up big time. As did the stewards but they will still get paid next week.

    I reckon old poster Nathan was pretty unlucky to not have his protest upheld in R5 at Melton tonight
    Anthony Butt came in a good metre on him and 'as if Anthony was not in full control' - I reckon he might have known what he was doing

    Watch the replay right until the end as the head on confirms what looked like a noticeable shift anyway - see how he overlaps wheels
