Lektra Stomp was vetted following this event and re-vetted following race six. It was reported after the second vetting that Lektra Stomp had soreness in the left foreleg deltoid and right foreleg saddle muscles and a seven day stand down period was imposed.
Stewards spoke to Mr Tom Dailly, the kennel representative of Lektra Stomp regarding this greyhounds performance this evening, which appeared well below market expectations. Mr Dailly explained the performance by way of several factors, namely that Lektra Stomp is a very unreliable beginner with large variances between his good and bad starts. Subsequently, when not being able to find the lead like tonight, he tends to perform many lengths off his best. Significantly, his best performance to date was during a daylight race meeting at the Meadows and as such will now return to racing there in an attempt to rediscover this form. Overall, the Stewards held the opinion that these factors, in conjunction with a minor seven day injury, was a performance that was not so unsatisfactory as to warrant any action being required under GAR 71.
