Recap by phillip woo

Salto Olimpico just scraped home from the fast-finishing favourite Tashidelek after rushing to the front 500m out tracking the leader Jolly Gene on the fence. He had been knocking on the door and was suited by the light weight up in grade with Joao Moreira steering. Tashidelek made it close on the wire after being ridden cold from the widest gate in his first start for his new trainer. He had put the writing on the wall two back and will be saluting shortly. God Of Dragon got going after a patient ride third from the rear to fill a placing. It was a pleasing effort in his first try over a route but didn't have much behind him. Rocketeer only plodded with every chance following a prominent run. He continues to disappoint. Giant Turtle was a non-factor after settling a distant third in the run. He has to lead or does tend to struggle. Jolly Gene knocked up badly after getting his own way in front. He's not racing well.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (714) - HIGH WEST HANDICAP - Class 3 - 2200Meters

TRAVEL FIRST was withdrawn on raceday morning by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore).

Before being allowed to race again, TRAVEL FIRST will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

GOD OF DRAGON shifted out at the start and bumped GIANT TURTLE.

OWNERS' STAR began only fairly and then lost ground when crowded for room between JOLLY GENE and TASHIDELEK which shifted in.

After initially being ridden along, TASHIDELEK was steadied and shifted across behind runners shortly after the start to obtain cover.

Then near the 2000 Metres, when racing in a three wide position, TASHIDELEK was further steadied to obtain cover behind OWNERS' STAR.

OWNERS' STAR made the Home Turn awkwardly.

Passing the 300 Metres, GIANT TURTLE was momentarily awkwardly placed outside the heels of JOLLY GENE as TASHIDELEK improved quickly to its outside.

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

SALTO OLIMPICO and TASHIDELEK were sent for sampling.
