Lot races over the years a horse  has  fallen or choked down .....drivers have navigated a wide course around the fallen runner, you weren't allowed to improve your position until you went past the incident.......Many moons ago knew a driver that had...

It has nothing to do with M.Radley and Gloucester Park Committee. Stewards are RWWA appointments and RWWA controls racing in WA across all tracks.

does the owner change stables willy-nilly or do the trainers ask him to move the horse on?
