trainer has indicated he intends on lodging an appeal, first with the stewards and all the way to the state commission and even up the legal route. Hard luck on Luis Saez who rode superbly, and on the animal who was a class apart.

He made the rider on Country House race an extra 10 yards by running across him on the turn thus the stewards were 100% in their decision

The Country House objection was overruled. The Long Range Toddy objection was upheld which finished 16th.

Saw the replay couple of times now. Maximum Security was unlucky to loose the race on an objection. The horse that lodged the objection finished 16th. The horse that initially got impeded War of Will, never lodged an objection at all.

The owners of Maximum Security might appeal the decision, they are assessing their options. Maximum Security was a claiming horse.

It's like when Simple Verse won the St Leger but lost it on an objection but won it on appeal couple of weeks later.

Let's say the appeal is upheld, objection reversed and MS declared the winner "again", how would it help those who did have a bet on MS and probably lost their bet as matters stand?

Guessing has never been widely acclaimed as a good gambling strategy

Is that because of the Irish Objection policy? Any idea how the other bookies are viewing it - if someone on here had a bet on MS at another bookie, what's their take - thanks?

What a load of bollocks, to have a horse finish 16th, lay an objection.

A true injustice there.....i hope they win their appeal for the stakes involved.....pity the punters though.

How much is 1st stake ?

Very brave decision by the stipes. I'm sure they realised the controversy that this decision (terrible imo) will raise.

Gents


you have become comfortably numb by watching this kind of thing happen everyday in SA


the USA has a zero tolerance for interference and a horses placing is not relevant to the decision if interference occurred or not.

France also pretty much have these rules, whereby you can interfere with an unplaced horse and be booted out.

on the face of it this might seem like an unfair decision but for the integrity of the controlling body a black and white approach is the only one.
