General

Stewards queried the driving tactics of Troy Lewis (SURFIN SUPERSTAR NZ) who raced three wide in the early and middle stages before taking the lead and giving ground over the concluding stages.  Mr Lewis explained that he had intended to go out into a position in the one wide line, however, the horse running to its inside had broken gait and dropped into a position that Mr Lewis had intended filling.  He then proceeded to a three wide position to try and get into a position racing down the back straight on the first occasion and was unable to do so.  Mr Lewis then proceeded forward to take the lead endeavouring to surrender the lead to any runner that challenged.  This did not eventuate and consequently the horse gave ground over the concluding stages.  The evidence of Mr Lewis was supported by the Stewards  vision of the race.  Under the circumstances, Stewards accepted Mr Lewis’s explanations and no further action was taken.

STELLAS STARZZZ (Dean Chandler) – Inconvenienced racing in the back straight on the final occasion behind tiring runners.
