Racing has been put back one race at the Gold Coast following an incident in the parade ring prior to the running of the second race.
Rhapsody Rose became fractious in the ring and when apprentice Justin Huxtable, when to re-mount her, it has been reported that the Clerk Of The Courses pony too fright and double-barrelled Huxtable.
Huxtable needed immediate attention and will obviously be taken to hospital for further assessment. The wait for a second ambulance to arrive at the track has necessitated the delay and the runners, who had left the parade ring to go to the start, have been called back to the enclosure.
Rhapsody Rose remains a runner in race two with Ben Thompson replacing the unfortunate Huxtable.
