Sydney protest Margham vs Barabucci
I've replyed this race over and over and cannot see Barabucci interfering with Margham.
On the corner I see Margham trying to push it's way out but Barabucci seems to be travelling faster and is in the process of moving past it, they collide and Margham is pushed back in but unless there is a rule which states that you cannot overtake a horse without giving it the right of way to escape the pocket it's in the protest result confuses me.
Take a look at the corner (400 M) and you will see that M is at 45deg going for a gap being filled by the speedier horse travelling in what seems to me a straight line.
Anyway, take a look and post what you see.
Hey i couldnt see anything wrong with the run either i wad very pissed off as i had $200 for the win at $11 fixed odds.
pays to have an account at IAS bet. I was on Barabucci and was as p----d off as you when it was upheld. It was Quinn v Bowman the same two riders involved in the fall incident at Rosehill, so stewards probably biased against Bowman. Anyway looked at my IAS account this and they paid my BARBUCCI bet on saturday as a winner because of their protest promotions offer (which I had completely forgotten about). Thanks IAS !!!
Yeah i just got my Barrabucci money through too. I was p&%$#d off with the protest aswell until i realised iIAS pay anyway.
I was betting with sportingbet and didnt receive a cent.
Also had money on Testemonial that day looked the goods until the jockey dropped the whip and last by a head.
I stood Barrabucci out in one of Quaddies for 1.25units, reckon it would of paid $3000.
I still broke even just as in my other Quaddie I had Margham And Folow that Cat.
but only for 50%
I have only seen the incident once and didn`t think there was anything in it. I also watched the stewards hearing of the protest and the steward said that Barabucci bumped another horse causing that horse to in turn bump the protesting horse thus turning it inward behind another horse thus closing its run. Sounded far fetched to me i agree the stewards obviously think Bowman`s susspension isn`t enough punishment. Shame for the connections and you punters who were on him that it happened to be Bowman`s ride any other rider would probably have been excused.
Just get on Barrabucci for the magic millions 3yo and try and get some back. Fixed at $12 on IAS
Compared to the one on Cup day, that was Dismissed, there was absolutly nothing in it.
It's a beautiful thing when a bookie pays out on 2nd. Good promo to get your hands on!
