Blue Diamond veterinary examinations

Racing Victoria (RV) veterinarians have today inspected 15 out of 16 starters for this Saturday’s Group 1 Neds Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m). 

Three horses will be re-examined tomorrow morning by a panel of three veterinarians (two RV and one independent), the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained Enthaar, the Lloyd Kennewell-trained Marine One and the Graheme Begg-trained Dosh, after all three horses presented with lameness in the near fore. 

The Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes-trained Finance Tycoon will be inspected tomorrow when he arrives at Flemington. 

All other horses have been passed fit to race. 

An update will be provided tomorrow following the examinations.
