Jockey Ethan Brown is set to be interviewed about the downfall of the Australian Guineas, Jamie Kah is awake talking to family
“There is no evidence that drivers are driving tighter than in the past. The two requests are still open, we haven’t closed them yet.
“Preliminary evidence of Jamie Kah’s fall is that she clipped her heels near the 1000m mark. But we’re still investigating as soon as Jamie becomes available, and we’ll conclude the investigation into the Guinea case, hopefully later this week.”
When asked if slow racing caused disruption, Cram said it had long been a problem in Victorian racing.
“Riders are penalized from time to time for slowing the pace too much during a race,” he said.
“There are instances where that happens so obviously the stewards are vigilant and make sure to keep a good pace when racing.
“This topic has been debated since I became a steward. From time to time we prefer more pace in our races. Certainly the pace is related to glitches when the pace is slowed down too much but we think our race is good, it’s been good for a while. I think racing in Victoria is as safe as anywhere in the world.”
