A pre-race sample was taken from Gentleman Thief.
Stride For Pride was slow to begin. Go Quantum and Mepunga Royal collided approaching the first turn checking Mepunga Royal. Stride For Pride and Halwes collided on the first turn checking Halwes. Mepunga Royal checked off Run From Reality on the first turn. Mepunga Royal galloped on the heels of Run From Reality approaching the second turn checking both greyhounds. Run From Reality and Stride For Pride collided in the home straight.
Stride For Pride was vetted following the event. It was reported that there was no apparent injury found.
Lily Potter was vetted following the event. It was reported that there was no apparent injury found.
After the finishing line, Lily Potter pulled up prior to the return gate, jumped the inside running rail and ran across the infield to the lure that was (by then) parked in the back straight.The Stewards spoke with Kennel Representitive Mrs Lisa Cockerell and discussed the general safety concerns held with this practise for both Lily Potter but also other greyhounds in the race and staff. The Stewards noted that Lily Potter had demonstrated this same practise on previous occasions and that it now appears to have become a behavioural trait. Acting in accordance with GAR 71 and being mindful of the welfare and safety of Lily Potter, other greyhounds in the race and staff that triage these type of incidents, the Stewards were not satisfied with the performance and placed Lily Potter on a satisfactory trial with the condition that Lily Potter shall run past the return gate effectivley so as to be captured in the catching pen, at the conclusion of trial.
