Recap by phillip woo

In a blanket finish of four, the late plunged Eroico came on strongly from midfield to get the bob in for a second straight dirt success despite a step back in distance. He's at his mark on the turf and is running out of options on this surface. Another well-backed runner, Almababy just staved off Dundonnell for second carrying a featherweight after a box-seat run. The Valley and the dirt will continue to pay his feed bills. Dundonnell wasn't flash into stride but was coming on strongly late down the outside to make it close on the wire. Off his current mark, he's finding it tough on the turf and the dirt options are at a minimum. First-up off a long break, Fabulous One wouldn't go down without a fight after being hustled to lead 900m out. If he pulls up fine, he could get away with a Group Three race off a lightweight on the turf in the not too distant future. Happy Surveys finished well after a patient ride to finish just out of the placings. He's an honest sprinter but doesn't have many points in hand. Wah May Friend had his chance but wasn't up to the task.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (346)-PENFOLD PARK HANDICAP - Class 1 - 1200Metres

DUNDONNELL began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped BORN IN CHINA, resulting in both horses losing ground.

HAPPY SURVEYS began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, EROICO was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 600 Metres, ALMABABY shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of PABLOSKY.

After the 600 Metres, DUNDONNELL got its head on the side and lay out when awkwardly placed close to the heels of EROICO.

Rounding the Home Turn, ALMABABY and PABLOSKY raced tight.

Shortly after entering the Straight, FABULOUS ONE became badly unbalanced of its own accord.

When questioned regarding the performance of WAH MAY FRIEND, J Moreira stated that after riding his mount along in the early stages to take up a forward position, he was able to obtain a good trailing position behind the leaders passing the 800 Metres.

He said after being crossed by ALMABABY, WAH MAY FRIEND appeared to resent the kickback and he therefore shifted WAH MAY FRIEND away from behind that horse in the hope that it would travel better.

He said WAH MAY FRIEND continued to race off the bridle and he therefore shifted the horse out from behind PABLOSKY after the 600 Metres.

He added, despite this, WAH MAY FRIEND did not respond to his riding and was most disappointing in the manner in which it gave ground in the Straight.

A veterinary inspection of WAH MAY FRIEND immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood and mucopus in the horse's trachea.

The performance of WAH MAY FRIEND, a favourite for tonight's race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, WAH MAY FRIEND will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, D Whyte was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of PABLOSKY.

A veterinary inspection of PABLOSKY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

WAH MAY FRIEND, EROICO and ALMABABY were sent for sampling.
