The Stewards received a report from W. Fleming , Turf Club Clerk of the Scales, regarding the fact that S.B. Kelly , rider of Rockview Emperor , weighed out at 2 lbs overweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who stated that he had notified the trainer that he would carry 1 lb overweight but was unable to lose the required amount of weight to fulfil the commitment. John C. McConnell, trainer, stated that he was aware that the rider would be carrying 1 lb overweight but he had no alternative but to leave him on his charge as there was no other suitable rider.
