Stewards Probe "Tactics By All Riders" In Brisbane Race
Racing Queensland stewards announced an inquiry "into the riding tactics employed by riders in Race 7 at Eagle Farm on Wednesday & the betting activities associated with that race will be reconvened next Thursday" (February 24). This timing "will allow stewards to gather further information in respect of betting activities". The rider & trainer "of every horse in the race have been required to appear, along with a number of bookmakers & at least one punter". Stewards also confirmed "further parties may be required as more information comes to hand". In the race, 5YO gelding Ibalance scored by a neck from 7 other runners over 1200m (with both the equal-favoutites Falls Creek & Vaarwel unplaced).
