Wonderful Result

Recommended Posts

Congratulations to Ken Kelso and the team for Levante's Telegraph win. Hopefully it will expunge some of the residual bitter taste of the disgraceful Magic Briar relegation at the hands of a dreadful JCA team that was led by someone who still has too much say in our industry. JMO of course.

Great ride by Ryan Elliot.

Took control of the race after the jump, put pressure on the field at the turn and relied on  the mares toughness to get home.

Incurring an 8 day suspension and a $4,000 fine.

Great training effort by Ken and Bev Kelso. Her time of 1.6.18 eclipsed the previous Race Record (and NZ Record ) of 1.6.51 set in 1999 by Bawalaksana. Her time could well be a world record on Turf.

Won't be The race was hand timed.

Stewards Report

GENERAL Times recorded for 1200 metre races down the shute today were hand timed.

Why was Ryan Elliot  suspended and fined. What was  the offence? 

 

R Elliot (LEVANTE) - Admitted a charge in that he struck his mount LEVANTE 7 times prior to the 100 metre mark.
After considering submissions the Adjudicative Committee imposed a suspension of his licence to ride in races from
the conclusion of racing on Saturday, 22 January until the conclusion of racing on Monday, 7 February, 8 national
riding days, and in addition imposed a fine of $4,000

Win should be taken away for that.

That's why the rule is an ass, joke, call it what you want.

The fact is; he broke the rule, gained an unfair advantage and beat them......wrong, wrong, wrong.

This is just one of the reasons the game is now stuffed and that's because it's run by idiots all on the take!

Interesting scenario if Levante was beaten by say Eptimum , Ocean Point or Live Drama under the same circumstances, would we be viewing this case a lot more vehemently ?

This is going to blow up badly one day.

What if one of Roch'N'Horses connections at home rings through and says Elliot broke the whip rules so put in a protest.

If they are going to live by this rule why didn't the stipes blow the siren or is it something that's looked at well after the race ?

Maybe all clear shouldn't be given until all the placegetters whip count is in ?

Just seems it's such a half arsed rule.

The big tough stipes suspending and fining jockeys well after the race because they can , yet so far off the ball when it comes to real time.

If Ken got beat and someone told him to protest over whip strikes, the stipes and RIB would shit their pants.

From now on ,if you get beaten in a relatively tight finish , I'd ask to view the film and stipes can count the whip strikes .

This is going to end badly one day.

And it won't be in a R65 for the lucrative sum of $12k

The whip rule is going to change very soon. Does that mean Elliot then that he can appeal?, the fine would be the entire riding fee?

Not if it is not retrospective which I cannot see happening. 

Winning percentage was $7187.50   Fine was $4000.00

Yes that's ridiculous. Not much use having a whip rule with the penalty only half the riding fee. You can only expect further breaches to occur whatever the rule is.

And don't be surprised if the Owners didn't chip in just $1k each , as part of the Sling of course..

Group 1 win , I know I would be
