Whispers abound Dan Staeck fall (or flop)

West Australian Racing
There were many discussions at Ascot after Dan Staeck fell off Eye Art, sustaining an injured shoulder in the process... the word was that his departure from the horse was not an accident after all... I didn't see it so can't add anything to it but it makes me wonder why someone would do such a thing...

    For those who aren't aware, he fell off during the preliminary, not in the race

    The anyone talking about it Flanders have any idea you reckon. So the bloke falls off and receives a exspected broken collarbone in the process surely there is easier ways to bring one undone if that's what your insinuating

    EYE ART - En route to the barrier rider became unbalanced and was dislodged and as a result the
    mare galloped for some distance before being recaptured and as such acting on veterinarian
    observations the mare was subsequently withdrawn from this event. Due to Jockey D Staeck falling,
    he received medical treatment with regards to pain in his left side clavicle and soreness to the rib area
    and as such was transported to Royal Perth Hospital for x-rays and further observations. Due to this
    incident all races for the remainder of the meeting were re-scheduled.

    Some of you have too much time on your hands...

    So for what reason are you saying he done it ?Jockeys fall off all the time going to the gates. Please give us your reason or reasons for him deliberately coming off. Because I reckon the many at Ascot you are listening to have nfi

    How the feckn hell would I know why he did it man? Surely only Staeck knows that.

    I said above what I heard because I thought PTT is an appropriate place to do so, but maybe it isn't anymore? If not, what is it here for?

    Did the many saying he deliberately fell off offer any reason for him doing so. Surely they had a theory about him coming off

    Many did, yes. The reason was in the stewards report near the top of page 1.
  • spinkingspinking    2,072 posts
    The same stewards report Diva has posted above
  • FlandersFlanders    251 posts
    Yes page 1 as I said. His extract was from page 2.

    Surely they can still take urine samples anyway...

    Samples taken randomly. So if you were to be sampled you would not know about it, and secondly as Rodent stated they could and most probably would still ask you to **** even if you did break a collarbone. What I have learned after being involved with racing for many years, and living many of them in Ascot is that there are lots of stories that get around. Quite a few of them without any real substance to them

    Well the truth will come out mate, it usually does. I'm sure there will be some substance to this one.

    Get a read of The West today, Staeck stood down after urine sample taken yesterday.

    Should all be tested including rwwa staff, stable employees and trainers. 
    That would probably reduce the field size a fair bit.
    It is strange that the numbers of people that are at the track drop when drug testing is being done.

    He was a favourite topic for a while...Got told a few years back he was a new man, all that was behind him, and he appears to have kept his nose clean for quite a long time. Which is great and good on him for getting on top of this. And yes. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Not sure that RWWA's jurisdiction would extend to an emergency room!!

    in most work places, once your in the care of health professionals, work policies no longer come into play....I also stand to be corrected. however if they took a sample (pi55 or blood) and told him he had to give it, but in fact he didn't have to give it.....then that wouldn't be able to be used against him....

    RWWA is a pretty switched on organisation, so i doubt they'd fug that sort of situation up
