Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Dundalk 25th October 2013

The Stewards authorised the following substitutions of riders at this meeting:

F. Lynch replaced R.P. Whelan on Keilogue, trained by George J.Kent (Race 8)(Illness)

289B2 Crowne Plaza Championship App H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from R.Donohoe, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Happy Anniversary, placed first, as compared with her recent form. The trainer reported that the filly performed consistently last season until her last two runs here at Dundalk when her form had tailed off. He reported that she sustained an injury in the Spring, requiring surgery and as a result only ran twice so far this year. He was satisfied with her first run back at Naas at the start of August but admitted the filly ran poorly on her next run at Galway. He had her checked out afterwards, and while nothing came to light, he decided to give her a week or two off and freshen her up, and this together with a drop into a lower grade race tonight, may have brought about any apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report the Stewards noted the explanations offered.
