Recap by phillip woo

Elegance Klammer travelled midfield and on the rails, pushed into the clear six deep at the 400m and came with a sustained run with one widest out to take control in deep stretch for a first win at his 17th start. Winning Apex travelled fourth along the rails, peeled four deep soon after straightening, hit the front 30m out and found one too good in the end. Lombardi travelled a handy fifth and two deep, rounded the final bend five wide and finished up well to collar Jimson The Best in the final few metres. Jimson The Best sat second in the run just off the rails, swept to the lead two deep at the 350m, was nearly two lengths clear at the 200m and gave way late. Jolly Fine settled three back and on the rails, pushed five wide at the 350m and ran on OK. Punted late, Craig's Pride travelled worse than midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend with three wider out and made some ground. Percy Jackson made some progress late without menacing. Late-fancied favourite Classic Jewellery couldn't keep up the gallop over the final 150m with every chance. He'll need to fill out with more time and experience. Noble Defeater dictated the running, was headed 350m out and stopping badly in the last 150m with some late-market support.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (523) - HOMESTEAD HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600 Meters ZACHARY was slow to begin and lost a considerable amount of ground at the start.

Before being allowed to race again, ZACHARY will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

WINNING APEX and LOMBARDI bumped at the start.

After the 1200 Metres, PERCY JACKSON commenced to prove difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CRAIGS PRIDE for some distance.

Approaching the 800 Metres, WINNING APEX was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of JIMSON THE BEST.

O Doleuze (WINNING APEX) was fined a sum of $2,000 for raising his whip arm above shoulder height.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of CLASSIC JEWELLERY, D Whyte said that although his mount was drawn wide, he was able to shift across towards the rail in the early stages without having to make undue use of CLASSIC JEWELLERY.

He said making the first turn he shifted CLASSIC JEWELLERY in behind JIMSON THE BEST and the horse travelled well until rounding the Home Turn at which stage he was not able to position CLASSIC JEWELLERY to prevent WINNING APEX from shifting out to his inside.

He added in the early part of the Straight CLASSIC JEWELLERY immediately came under pressure and after this weakened noticeably over the final 200 Metres.

Trainer J Size advised that it is now his intention to give CLASSIC JEWELLERY a let-up following todays race.

A veterinary inspection of BLESSING and CLASSIC JEWELLERY after the race did not show any significant findings.

CLASSIC JEWELLERY, ELEGANCE KLAMMER and WINNING APEX were sent for sampling.
