Due to Government Social Distancing Laws under COVID-19 and acting in accordance with GAR 51 (10), the Stewards have directed that the boxing process in Victoria will revert to and continue under the 4-wave model being 1 & 5 boxed first, followed by 3 & 7, followed by 2 & 6, followed by 4 & 8. Handlers are required to exit the area after boxing and maintain their 1.5m distance from other handlers and staff at all times.
All persons (both Staff & Participants) attending today, undertook successful health screenings and wore face-masks/covers that in-turn, permitted entry to the venue for exclusive race-day functions and operations.
Stewards were advised by Mr C Chillcot that the track was lightly harrowed on Monday the 10th of August.
Spearhead Joe was slow to begin. Moon Flower crossed to the rails approaching the first turn checking Aston Chandra and Pretty Mouse. Astro Boy and Carry On Star collided on the first turn. Aston Chandra and Spearhead Joe collided on the first turn. Spearhead Joe checked off Moon Flower on the first turn causing Och Eye Mum to race wide. Spearhead Joe and Moon Flower collided on the second turn and raced wide. Pretty Mouse and Och Eye Mum collided several times on the second turn; both greyhounds lost considerable ground. Astro Boy raced wide on the home turn.
Pretty Mouse underwent a post-race veterinary examination and was found to have a right chest muscle injury. A 10 day stand down period was imposed. Stewards spoke to Mr. P Burley (representing Trainer - Mrs D Burley) regarding the racing manners of Pretty Mouse during the event, and the upgrade in distance from its previous start. Mr. Burley advised that the greyhound had been trialling over the 525m at The Meadows and that he was disappointed with the greyhound's performance today. Stewards, in taking into consideration the lack of experience of the greyhound and the injuries sustained, issued a warning regarding the overall performance of Pretty Mouse today. Stewards also invoked GAR75(1) and advised Mr. Burley to report as soon as practicable anything that may have affected the running of Pretty Mouse in the event which was not noted by Stewards during or immediately after the event.
Och Eye Mum underwent a post-race veterinary examination and was found to have a right hamstring injury. A 10 day stand down period was imposed.
A post-race sample was taken from Carry On Star - the winner of the event.
