Winton HRC 19 November 2020 - R 6 - Chair, Prof G Hall

Created on 22 November 2020

Committee:
GHall (chair)
Respondent(s):
Mr N Williamson - Trainer/Driver of SEKKIE MONKEY
Informant:
Ms R Haley - Stipendiary Steward
Information Number:
A12884
Horse Name:
SEKKIE MONKEY
Persons present:
Mr N Ydgren - Chief Stipendiary Steward
Evidence:

Miss Haley sought the disqualification of horse 11, SEKKIE MONKEY, placed 5th after a successful protest as it galloped in excess of 50 metres in the final 200 metres.

Placings after an earlier successful protest were:
1st - 12 RYDGEMONT MILLY
2nd - 9 TWEEDLEDEE
3rd – 6 HORSE OF COURSE
4th – 5 ALPINE RETREAT
5th - 11 SEKKIE MONKEY

Submissions For Decision:

Mr Ydgren demonstrated on the videos that SEKKIE MONKEY galloped for over 100 metres in the home straight.

Mr Williamson did not contest the protest.

Reasons For Decision:

After viewing the videos from the various angles, the Committee is satisfied that SEKKIE MONKEY was not in its proper gait for a distance in excess of 50 metres. SEKKIE MONKEY was free of interference at the time. The breaking horse regulations are clear in that the horse is deemed to be in breach of r 870(3) in that it has failed to promptly regain its proper gait.

Decision:

As SEKKIE MONKEY has gained an advantage over the field, it is appropriate that the horse be disqualified.

Amended placings are:
1ST – 12 RYDGEMONT MILLY
2ND - 9 TWEEDLEDEE
3RD – 6 HORSE OF COURSE
4th – 5 ALPINE RETREAT
5th – 3 THE PEAKY BLINDER
