NZ Metro TC - Friday, 5th June 2020
Race 8 - BETTOR TWIST PACE
Stewards spoke with driver C DeFilippi regarding the start of this event where he attempted to line up one space wider than drawn which caused tightening to other runners. Mr DeFilippi was also spoken to regarding the manner in which he shifted ground inwards entering the final straight, which crowded another runner, and issued with a warning.
Race 11 - PARTYON MOBILE PACE
Stewards spoke with driver J Dunn (SOUNDSLIKEART) regarding an incident at the 700m when he struck the wheel of Lulu Le Mans causing the tyre to deflate. After considering Mr Dunn's comments, and noting that Mr Dunn's horse had been over racing and causing him difficulties, Stewards did not take the matter any further.
