Supplementary Stewards Report 

Ballarat -27 August 2021

RACE 4 –ALDEBARAN PARK VICBRED PLATINUM MAIDEN TROT (2200 MS)

David Magri, driver of Columbias Deecee was questioned in relation to a matter approaching the 1000m, where Mr Magri’s head was directed backwards as My High Peak galloped. Upon consideration of the evidence, inclusive of the footage available it was established that approaching the 1000m My High Peak commenced to over-race and raced in close proximity behind Columbias Deecee. As My High Peak’s head was then positioned immediately over Mr Magri’s right shoulder and making contact with the outside sulky wheel of Columbias Deecee, Mr Magri explained that for safety reasons he then endeavoured to prevent that gelding from racing any closer in his vicinity by directing his head backwards. A short distance after, My High Peak then galloped. Given the associated safety considerations and that Mr Magri had not initiated any movement by his head until My High Peak had raced in extreme close proximity to his right shoulder, no further action was deemed necessary in those circumstances. Furthermore, Stewards noted the racing manners of My High Peak during this section, that the gelding was only having its third race start and therefore pursued no action against driver Jackie Barker.
