239F Navan Members H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from D. K. Weld, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Dalton Highway, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Pat O'Brien, authorised representative of the trainer, reported that this horse ran well previously in Galway but in the apprentice race at the Curragh last time riders were not allowed to carry whips. Today, the horse, which perhaps needs a strong ride, may have appreciated a return to being ridden by a senior rider. He also reported that headgear was reapplied today. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the contents of the report.

L.F. Roche, rider of Path Of Silver, trained by Richard Brabazon, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran flat from two furlongs out.

239G Racing Again September 3rd M'dn

The Stewards enquired into an incident in the straight involving Estrenar, ridden by O.J. Orr, Lost History, ridden by C.T. Keane, Secret Wizard, ridden by G.F. Carroll, and Wondersnevercease (GB), ridden by C.P. Hoban, where it appeared Estrenar, Lost History and Secret Wizard received interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards found C.P. Hoban in breach of Rule 214 by riding carelessly and having taken his good record into account the Stewards cautioned him regarding his future riding.

The Stewards informed Nigel Johnston, trainer that Danville Girl, would have to be recertified before being declared to run from stalls again.
