Stewards noted the intended tactics from trainers with multiple runners in the one race
Race 1 - RQ & MARBURG PARTNERING FOR GROWTH PACE 1850M
Valkyrie Hanover (Lachie Manzelmann)– Was restrained to the rear of the field after being caught wide in the early stages. Raced roughly on the turn out of the front straight on the final occasion.
Race 2 – VALE ROBERT MACDONALD PACE 1850M
Chang (Clint Sneddon)– Hung in after the start resulting in contact with marker posts.
Pageantry (Mathew Neilson)– Gave ground badly over the final lap to be beaten 139 metres. Stewards deemed the performance unsatisfactory and declared the gelding ineligible until it trials satisfactorily.
Private Jujon (Lachie Manzelmann)– Shifted ground under pressure in the run to the finish.
Regina Elena (Julie Weidemann)– Hung out on the turn after the start. Suffered a bleeding attack during the event. Acting under the provisions on AHR. 101 Regina Elena was stood down for a period of three (3) months plus a veterinary clearance and satisfactory trial.
Littledee (Matt Elkins)– Raced wide in the middle stages before working forward to the position outside of the leader.
Quality Time (Neil Murray)– Broke in the early stages of the score up resulting in the gelding being out of position at the start. Quality time will continue to be excluded from the barrier draw in future mobile events until Stewards are satisfied it can perform in the desired manner.

ARTHUR LOWE NZ (Lachie Manzelmann)– Inclined to hang in during the event resulting in contact with marker posts on the turn out of the front straight on the first occasion.

Essential Three (Julie Weidemann)– Hung out and raced ungenerously on the turn into the front straight on the first occasion when the pace of the race steadied.

Aurora Rose (Peter Greig)– Hung in when under pressure during the final LAP.
Nevaevabend (Zac Chappenden)– Inconvenienced when Essential Three raced ungenerously during the first lap.

Yarramans Shadow (Jordan Topping)– Contacted sulky and broke gait on the turn into the front straight on the first occasion when racing to the inside of My Secret Beach.
General: Stewards inquired into the reason for Yarramans Shadow (Jordon Topping) contacting the sulky of My Secret Beach (Julie Weidemann) and breaking gait on the turn into the front straight on the first occasion. After consideration of the evidence provided by the Drivers Julie Weidemann was given the benefit of the doubt that she was fully responsible for the incident.
Race 6 - OAKWOOD CAPITAL PACE 1850M
Amused (Angus Garrard)- Broke in the score up and was out of position at the start. The gelding will be excluded from the barrier draw in future mobile events until Stewards are satisfied it can perform in the desired manner.
