DR SUSAN “OUT OF BARRIER DRAW” AFTER VICTORIA OAKS VICTORY
Victoria Oaks winner Dr Susan will need to perform satisfactorily in two public appearances to re-renter the barrier draw for the $A200,000 New South Wales Oaks on February 29.
The Bettor’s Delight filly was declared ouit of the barrier draw for upcoming races after tangling in the Oaks score-up at Melton, causing a false start.
Although she never put a foot wrong in the re-run, stewards reacted to the first score-up, placing an immediate ban on her being in the barrier draw.
“She’s just freshening in Sydney,” said co-trainer, Cran Dalgety.
“If she does everything right in both of those, she should be back in the barrier draw for the Final the following week,” he said.
