    What about that for bringing the game into disrepute. Shameful timing to decide to measure the gigs on Saturday night on cup night when the stewards had the information on Thursday. Shame, shame, shame.

    I thought Emma Stewart's home club was Ballarat. I hope she thought long and hard about this action

    From the UFO Sulky website. If they have sold as many sulkies as the ad says, wern't they approved in the first place?

    "Excuse the pun but Australia's main UFO harness racing man is over the moon. The chief executive for UFO Sulkies in Australia and New Zealand, Frank Ranaldi, is delighted with both the sales and the results since the official launch of his company in October last year.
    “I couldn’t be happier. We have had more than 800 winners and as many place-getters again in Australasia.
    “The UFO sulky has dominated Australia with a plethora of track and race records. There have also been multiple Group 1 winners including Interdominion Final (I’m The Mightyquinn) and the recent Auckland Cup quinella (I’m The Mightyquinn and Terror To Love),” Ranaldi told Harnesslink.:

    What has happened to the sulky from the time stewards approved it until now? Is this a new version that didn't go before stewards? If it is outside the rules - it is cheating. Simple as that. What about the stables who have paid big bucks for the UFO gigs. Emma Stewart with 4 runners must have $50000 invested in them. Many questions to be answered

    And more...
    "BEAUTIDE " (James Rattray up) wins Miracle Mile in 1.50.2 "BETTORS FIRE" ( Kyle Harper up ) in a soft 1.53.8 Mt Eden Mile victory...using UFO Sulkies !!!!

    There is no logic in what appears to have taken place at Ballarat/ Hope that the papers tomorrow pick it up and report honestly, and that the Racing Minister Martin Pikula has been informed.
    The effects are enormous....Ballarat get 10% of the oncourse TAB turnover for th emeeting..that will be effected, sponsor goodwill down the gurgler,surely owners couldn't be in agreement with scratching from a Group 1 race.
    You can actually hire sulkies on course ( Australian Sulky Hire via their Facebook page) , and some drivers have their own. Daryl Douglas takes his sulky to the races with him ( maybe they are UFOs)
