Race Comments

Race 1   ALLIED SECURITY - BIG SUPPORTERS OF ADDINGTON MOBILE PACE
CHANGEAROUND - raced keenly when surrendering the lead near the 1400 metres. Had some difficulty obtaining clear racing room over the final stages. Driver S Wigg reported that she had not been able to release the gelding's deafeners.
FLAME LADY - out of position at the candy pole. Driver A Edge was spoken to regarding the way he allowed the mare to drift out outwards for the length of the home straight and told that he will be expected to make a better effort to maintain a straight line in future races.
SONIC REIGN - raced greenly near the 1100 metres and shifted up the track when leading.
MACK SHEER - out of position at the start. Over-raced middle stages. Weakened near the 300 metres. Driver M Stratford advised he could not release the removable deafeners. Mr Stratford was spoken to regarding his horse being out of position at the candy pole at the start. He advised that the horse had proven fractious in the pre-start but not withstanding that he was advised that he was expected to make a greater effort to have his horse correctly positioned behind the mobile in future.
THE GOVERNOR - driver S Murtha reported that he had not released the gelding's' deafeners.
Race 2   ALLIED SECURITY - PROUDLY NZ OWNED & OPERATED MOBILE TROT
BE BEE LASS - driver B Orange reported he had not been able to activate his deafeners due to the release cord breaking.
SUNGAIT'S LEGACY - hampered by a breaking runner near the 550 metres losing ground.
LATINA HALL - held up in the early and middle stages of the run home. Driver R May reported that the mare to have raced greenly and had trotted roughly on a number of occasions.
SUMMER LOVIN - briefly trotted roughly after 200 metres. Trotted roughly on occasions throughout the run home with driver B Hope limited in the pressure he could apply to his gelding.
ACTION PACKED - broke prior to the start losing its chance.
CROWN RANGE - paced in the score-up losing considerable ground. Trainer A Clark reported that the gelding will now be sent for a spell.
JAGUAR BAY - over-raced in the early stages causing driver P Wakelin some difficulty. Continued to race fiercely throughout. Weakened approaching the 600 metres then broke soon after.
MAJESTIC CHICK - back from its Unruly position at the start.
Race 3   ALLIED SECURITY - FOR COMMERCIAL SECURITY MOBILE PACE
KEY REACTOR - checked and broke approaching the 400 metres. Stewards questioned drivers T Duley (assisted by S Ottley), T Chmiel and J Morrison regarding this incident. It was determined that initially NARCISSIST had attempted to shift outwards which had crowded the racing room available to the over-racing KEY REACTOR. This pressure was relieved immediately however as that occurred ANNIE RICHTER lay inwards and made contact with KEY REACTOR causing it to gallop. As runners either side had shifted ground marginally Stewards did not place blame with one sole driver but spoke with J Morrison advisedly regarding the manner in which he had driven.
NARCISSIST - pre-race warmed.
FRAUD - weakened from the 400 metres.
Race 4   ALLIED SECURITY - GREAT VALUE ALARM MONITORING MOBILE PACE
SAVVY BROMAC - trainer B Mowbray was issued with a warning for presenting the filly with deafeners which were not notified. Briefly held up in the latter stages of the run home.
TARA BROMAC - held up throughout the run home. Driver K Barron reported that he was unable to release the removable deafeners.
KIWI DREAM - weakened on the final bend. Driver R Holmes reported that the mare had over-raced throughout.
Race 5   ALLIED SECURITY - FOR MOBILE PATROLS & RESPONSE HCP PACE
TIEBREAKER - broke at the start losing all chance.
POCKET CALL - over-raced in the middle stages when outside the leader. When questioned as to whether she could have made a better effort to surrender the parked position near the 1600 metres Miss Thornley explained that it was always her intention to drive the horse with cover however her runner had then taken the bit and she was not able to get a firmer grip on the reins. Miss Thornley added her horse had given her some respite once FLAMBOYANT conceded some ground on her outside but was beaten soon after.
FLAMBOYANT - raced wide throughout despite the efforts of driver L McKay to take the gelding forward to the parked position near 1600 metres, however, was not able to cross down due to the parked horse over-racing. When questioned regarding this driver L McKay explained that the connections had advised her the horse was one-paced and preferred to be racing near to the speed which had encouraged her to work forwards once becoming caught wide. She added that her horse had raced lethargically despite the deafeners being released and it being tried with the whip and that, coupled with the parked horse over-racing, had not allowed her to gain a more economical run.
SWEET LORESS - broke briefly at the start.
MISS MUCHO - driver S Tomlinson reported that she carried a flat tyre from the 800 metres.
THE MAROON MARAUDER - driver K Tomlinson reported that she carried a flat tyre from the 800 metres.
Race 6   ALLIED SECURITY - EVENT SECURITY & GUARDS MOBILE PACE
FUN IN THE DARK - broke in the score-up and lost its chance. A warning was placed on the mare's mobile barrier manners.
HIDDEN DELIGHT - driver R Holmes reported that he had not released the deafeners on his mare. When spoken to regarding the horse's improved performance trainer B Weaver explained that she had derived benefit from an increased workload in training and responded well to the application of sliding blinds.
MAGICAL MATTY - raced wide early stages.
KAYLA MAGUIRE - locked wheels with DIAMOND EDITION near the 800 metres. Driver M Anderson advised Stewards that, notwithstanding his horse was slightly hanging inwards, because of his momentum he could not avoid contacting the wheel of DIAMOND EDITION. After considering the matter no blame was attributed to either driver.
DIAMOND EDITION - locked wheels with KAYLA MAGUIRE near the 800 metres. Driver J Morrison advised Stewards that at the 800 metres he was forced slightly wider by GLACIER COASTER and as he moved out he locked wheels with KAYLA MAGUIRE. After considering the matter no blame was attributed to either driver.
GOODTHINGSTAKETIME - was under pressure from the 700 metres and broke briefly at the 600 metres before weakening out.
Race 7   ALLIED SECURITY - NZ'S LARGEST SECURITY FIRM MOBILE TROT
SUGARINSPICE - lay inwards on the final bend losing ground in consequence.
GAYTANA - trotted roughly in the score-up and was out of position at the start. Broke for a short distance passing the 1600 metres and continued to trot roughly for the remainder of the race. A post race veterinary examination revealed no obvious abnormalities and the connections could only contribute today's performance to the filly being fresh up since it's last race on 28 February 2020.
SUGAR CANE - raced wide in the early stages.
AWAPUNI - held up in the early stages of the run home.
WESTEROS - pre-race warmed. Paced in the early stages of the score-up and was well out of the Unruly position at the start. Broke passing the 150 metres.
SIOUX PRINCESS - Stewards spoke to driver S Ottley regarding the tactics adopted on the mare which appeared in contrast with her last two winning runs where she had been driven on the pace from an early stage. Miss Ottley explained that two starts ago the horse had begun so well from a standing start she was able to find an easy lead. Miss Ottley added that last start the horse was able to be put into the race far earlier due to the slow sectionals at the time. She also said that she felt the horse was still close enough to challenge the leader and winner CARNEGIE HALL today but had been forced four wide in the back straight costing her some ground and energy. Trainer M Jones said he planned for the horse to be driven with a sit as despite her winning her last two races from being in front he believes her to be better when racing in behind other horses.
