2014 Orr Stakes Day Scratchings And Track Report

The heatwave in Melbourne means that all the races have been pushed forward to earlier in the day and there will be just thirty minutes between the running of the first six races, but despite the excessive temperature the Caulfield track remains in excellent condition.

Caulfield Track Report                                             

  • Weather: Hot
  • Track Conditions: Dead (4)
  • Penetrometer: 5.24
  • Rail: True
  • Previous Rail: Out 9 metres Entire Circuit (01/02/2014)

The heat has led to the scratching of a few runners in some of the biggest races on the card and the most high profile withdrawal is that of Victoria Derby winner Polanski from the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m).

Polanski broke out in hives overnight and was scratched from the Autumn Stakes at 7.40am this morning at the advice of Racing Victoria Veterinarians; dramatically opening up the Autumn Stakes betting market.

The Group 1 Orr Stakes (1400m) has also been affected by scratchings; with Playing God withdrawn on Thursday after suffering a career-ending tendon injury and Sertorius scratched due to concerns that he will not handle the heat.

The complete 2014 Orr Stakes Day scratchings can be found below – don’t forget to head over to Ladbrokes.com.au after studying the form to take advantage of the $4 odds on offer for Cox Plate winner Shamus Award in the Orr Stakes.
