Stewards Conclude Inquiry Into Rosehill Race Fall (Deanne Panya)

Racing NSW Stewards today concluded their inquiry into the circumstances relating to Apprentice Ms Deanne Panya being dislodged from SEBRING EXPRESS during Race 2 run at the Rosehill Gardens race meeting on 28 January 2017.

Evidence was today taken from App D Panya. Mr M Logue, General Manager for Welfare & Jockey Safety RNSW, assisted the inquiry.

App Panya stated that shortly after straightening she formed the view that ONE MORE HONEY, a runner, which she had been following, was going to shift out. She added that due to LET’S GET NAUGHTY being positioned to her outside near the 350m, she commenced to position her mount to the inside of ONE MORE HONEY, and determine the likelihood of establishing an opportunity to improve.

App Panya stated further that during the relevant period when it became apparent that ONE MORE HONEY was maintaining its line, she shifted her mount out across the heels ONE MORE HONEY approaching the 300m. She added during the course of this manoeuvre, SEBRING EXPRESS dipped slightly, she lost her balance and became dislodged.

The Stewards having considered the evidence made the following findings:

1) That early in the straight SEBRING EXPRESS was racing behind ONE MORE HONEY and slightly to the outside of that runner.

2) That approaching the 350m, ONE MORE HONEY, which was racing in advance of SEBRING EXPRESS, held the position on the running rail.

3) Passing the 350m, SEBRING EXPRESS was racing directly behind ONE MORE HONEY

4) Approaching the 300m, App Panya endeavoured to position her mount to the inside of ONE MORE HONEY to ascertain if there was clear running.

5) That after realising that there was insufficient room in which to proceed to the inside of ONE MORE HONEY, App Panya then angled her mount out across the heels of that runner passing the 300m.

6) SEBRING EXPRESS dipped slightly whilst being extricated from this position, during which time App Panya became unbalanced and was ultimately dislodged from the off side of SEBRING EXPRESS near the 250m.

In all the circumstances the occurrence was deemed accidental and the Stewards were further of the opinion that no rider exhibited carelessness. App D Panya was advised, however, that she should be more cautious in similar circumstances and to ensure that at all times she provides herself with sufficient clearance from the heels of other runners wherever possible.
