Forbury Park TC 17 October 2019 - R 5 (instigating a protest) - Chair, Prof G Hall

Created on 21 October 2019

Committee:
GHall (chair)
Respondent(s):
Mr R Allen - Owner of ANOTHERSUPERSTAR
Informant:
Mr V Munro - Stipendiary Steward
Information Number:
A9842
Horse Name:
ANOTHERSUPERSTAR
Persons present:
Evidence:

Mr Munro alleged that in Race 5 horse number 6 ANOTHERSUPERSTAR galloped in excess of 150 metres.

Mr Munro sought disqualification of ANOTHERSUPERSTAR pursuant to r 1003(2).

Judges placings were:

1st 5 ZONED SCARLETT
2nd 7 WINNING BONES
3RD 8 WITH ICE
4TH 2 AYUTTHAYA
5TH 6 ANOTHERSUPERSTAR

Submissions For Decision:

Mr Munro demonstrated on the videos that ANOTHERSUPERSTAR broke exiting the back straight on the first occasion and galloped and then paced for a distance of approximately 170 metres.

Mr Allen did not contest the protest.

Reasons For Decision:

After viewing the videos from the various angles, the Committee is satisfied that ANOTHERSUPERSTAR broke for a distance in excess of 150 metres. ANOTHERSUPERSTAR was free of interference at the time. The breaking horse regulations are clear in that the horse is deemed to be in breach of r 870(3) in that it has failed to promptly regain its proper gait.

Decision:

As ANOTHERSUPERSTAR has gained an advantage over the field it is appropriate that the horse be disqualified.

Amended placings are:

1st 5 ZONED SCARLETT
2nd 7 WINNING BONES
3RD 8 WITH ICE
4TH 2 AYUTTHAYA
5TH 4 IT’S ALF

Stakes and dividends are to be paid accordingly.
