Following the drawing of barrier positions, but prior to the official publication of the race fields for the race meeting of 28 July 2018, Assistant Trainer Mr Hemant Kumar Gujadhur for the Gujadhur stable contacted the Racing Stewards and queried the omission of racehorse BOUCLETTE TOP from Race 4 Benchmark 61 (1400 metres).
After reviewing the declarations for this race, it was confirmed that BOUCLETTE TOP had in fact been inadvertently over-looked as a declared runner.
Accordingly, acting under Rules 12(b) and 13 the Racing Stewards directed that BOUCLETTE TOP be included in the declarations for Race 4 and that the barrier positions be redrawn.
Consequently, with BOUCLETTE TOP rightfully obtaining a run in Race 4 OUR JET, Trainer S Narang’s second runner in the race was declared first emergency.
