All staff and participants attending the race meeting wore face masks at all times when inside the kennel block and associated buildings, and when engaged in the exclusive race day functions of handling, boxing, starting and catching greyhounds.
Harden and Och Eye Mum were slow to begin.
Och Eye Mum checked off Heart Of Gold approaching the first turn. Whatever I Say and Post Office Girl collided approaching the first turn checking Whatever I Say. Heart Of Gold turned its head outwards and raced wide on the first turn colliding with Whatever I Say, both greyhounds were severely checked as a result. Och Eye Mum and Heart Of Gold collided entering the home straight. Heart Of Gold turned its head outwards and collided with Och Eye Mum approaching the winning post.
Heart Of Gold underwent a post-race veterinary examination and was found to have an injury to the left hamstring. A 10 day stand down period was imposed. Stewards spoke to Trainer Mr Robert Le Sueur regarding the greyhounds racing manners on the first turn and in the home straight. Acting under the provisions of GAR 69B (1), Heart Of Gold was charged with failing to pursue the lure with due commitment (by reason of injury). Mr Le Sueur pleaded guilty to the charge, Heart Of Gold was found guilty and must perform a Satisfactory Trial in accordance with GAR 69B (1) and GAR 72, before any future nomination will be accepted.
A post-race sample was taken from Mepunga Allie - the winner of the event.
Following the running of the event the semaphore board momentarily displayed the incorrect placings. The numbers were corrected before the all clear was declared.
Catcher Mr Bart Russo was reminded of his responsibilities to ensure that he wears a fitted face-mask when catching greyhounds. Any further non-compliance issues may see him being removed from course under GAR 20 (3) (n).
