Racing Victoria ban Stradbroke Handicap winner from racing

Stradbroke Handicap winner Alligator Blood will not be permitted to race in Melbourne during the Spring Carnival after Racing Victoria on Thursday handed down a ruling relating to one of his owners.

After an inquiry into the ownership of a number of horses, RV stewards ruled that horses Allan Endresz has a majority share in will not permitted to race in Victoria.

The ruling relates to Endresz being an undischarged bankrupt, which is not permitted under AR36A(2)( c).

RV also had concern with being able to ascertain the identity of all beneficiaries associated Endresz and his racing syndicates, which was deemed to contravene AR36B.

RV stewards ruled that ‘named, Victorian-based horses’ that Endresz, his Ezybonds No 1 syndicate or any other syndicate Endresz is associated with holds a minority interest in can race in Victoria.

Any prizemoney share in which Endresz, Ezybonds No 1 or any other syndicate Endresz is associated with will be withheld.

But horses whom Endresz, Ezybonds No 1 or any other syndicate Mr Endresz is associated with holds a majority interest in will not be permitted to race until Endresz resolves the two areas of concern to stewards.

One such horse who fits into this category is the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained Alligator Blood, who in June won the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane.

Alligator Blood, who was on Tuesday among the entries for the $5 million Cox Plate (2040m), has won 10 of his 20 starts and $2.8 million in stakes.

The order also applies to the Robbie Griffiths and Mathew De Kock -trained American Pioneer, who was nominated to race at Moe on Saturday.
