Lipstick Flickers - Stewards Report

West Australian Racing
Last week's Pinjarra stewards report read:

WITHDRAWALS AFTER FINAL ACCEPTANCES

Race 6. LIPSTICK FLICKERS – Hoof soreness 

But in his post race interview, Todd Harvey said the horse was "in very good order". When Britney then asked about the scratching last week and whether that was because of a hoof issue, he said no that wasn't the reason, it was more the wide barrier. 

Wish they had put that in the stewards report!

    Why didn't he scratch again yesterday if that was the case. Agree very conflicted words from the trainer to what the stewards report stated. Very misleading to the punter

    its a bit of both really. She stepped on a nail/shoe (we're not sure) on the grass at Belmont a few weeks back. There's a bar shoe on to protect it. she was scratched the first week because the hoof was not quite right... she was scratched the second week because of the barrier... hoof was right but bar was still on as a precaution.
    She was almost scratched again Saturday because of the poor barrier, but we decided the map looked pretty good despite drawing the river.... so we took a gamble. Bar shoe was still on, but again, just as a precaution.
    So i guess it depends on which week Brittney was talking about as to why she was scratched.

    Brittney was talking about last week. As you say Diva, hoof was right and scratched because of the wide barrier - which is what Todd said in the interview - but that's not what last week's stewards report said.
