Stewards have now finalised an inquiry into the circumstances of the kennelling of Lektra Caution at Ballarat on 30 January 2019. Evidence was initially taken from Mr George Dailly on the day and then subsequently from the Trainer of Lektra Caution, Mrs Andrea Dailly. Mrs Dailly accepted the responsibility for failing to comply with a policy adopted by the Controlling Body (GRV Hot Weather Policy) in that Lektra Caution was kennelled wearing a Barking Muzzle, which is fully prohibited at heat effected race meetings. Mrs Dailly acknowledged the offence and accepted a fine of $250 as penalty. The Stewards would like to remind all participants that the requirements of the Hot Weather and Transport Policies are non-negotiable and sanctions will apply for non-compliance issues. Save for Lektra Caution being passed fit to race, the sanction/fine would be manifestly higher.
On Tuesday 5th February 2019, Trainer Keith Lloyd advised that Cavalry Rose who had raced at Ballarat 4th February 2019, had sustained the following injuries, soreness in the monkey muscle, chest muscle & strain in the back muscle.
Due to rainfall during kennelling, Stewards walked the track prior to this event and were satisfied the track surface was suitable for racing.
Twisted Whisker was slow to begin.
Blue Addition, Stoikos and Whitehart Magic collided approaching the first turn, checking Stoikos. Cherokee Fawn checked off Stoikos on the first turn.
