Let's face it, the Jockey Club has the power to make up the rules as it goes along, with no better motivation than pandering to one group or another, but who noticed that change to the import restrictions that allowed Momentous into the place? Several years ago, appalled at the burned-out Private Purchase (PP) horses being dumped here when past their use-by date, then-director of racing Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges forced a proviso into the criteria governing their import. And that was a maximum number of prior race starts - with 14 the magic number. With Engelbrecht-Bresges now chief executive and handling bigger issues than the day-to-day management of the horse population, someone at Sports Road has been tinkering. Momentous had been around 17 times prior to arriving and a quick look at the current rules shows this has been very quietly inserted into the rules as the new cut-off.
