Race 1 the frothies final furlong maiden plate - 1600 metres:

Olympic Flyer After being loaded into the barriers the gelding broke through the front gates riderless and galloped for some distance before being recaptured. As such Olympic Flyer was declared a late withdrawal by order of the Stewards, acting on veterinary advice at 1:18pm. All monies invested on Olympic Flyer were ordered to be refunded and all successful bets with Bookmakers were ordered to be paid less the following deductions in the dollar, on the face value of the ticket:

1st) Make Believe Diva 10c for the win and 13c for the place

2nd) Quaille 8c for the place

3rd) Princess Lemoore 13c for the place

As a result the commencement of this race was significantly delayed.

Apache Shadow Raced wide without cover for the majority of the race. Hampered and carried wider rounding the home turn by Spirit Of Brown, which was carried wider by Quaille, which hung out. Performed below market expectations Rider M Keenan stated that although caught wide his mount travelled well throughout the race, however failed to respond to his riding over the final 300m. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any obvious abnormality. Rider M Keenan was reprimanded for using his whip on 7 occasions prior to the 100m.

Quaille Hung out approaching and rounding the home turn and when placed under pressure in the home straight.

Spirit Of Brown Hampered and carried wider rounding home turn by Quaille, which hung out. Eased down over the final 250m. Rider T Lake stated that in his opinion something was amiss with the horses action behind and for this reason he elected to ease it down in the home straight. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any obvious abnormality.

Make Believe Diva Held up for clear running approaching and rounding home turn, before shifting to the outside of Apache Shadow on straightening. Rider R Kirkpatrick was severely reprimanded for using his whip on 10 occasions prior to the 100m.

Miss Coubie Rider G Seccombe was reprimanded for using his whip on 7 occasions prior to the 100m.

Princess Lemoore On straightening was steadied to avoid the heels of Make Believe Diva (R Kirkpatrick), which shifted out from behind Apache Shadow to obtain clear running. R Kirkpatrick was advised to exercise far more care when shifting ground in future. Following this incident Princess Lemoore was held up and unable to obtain clear running until passing the 150m.
