Commissioner compensates connections for photo finish mistake

Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner Ross Barnett will make a special payment to the connections of the horse that was originally placed first in a photo finish mistake in race 8 at Yeppoon on 23 July 2019.

“On race day, number 6 Great Fox was judged the winner of the QTIS 3 year-old Handicap and number 1 Victory Toast was judged second, but after a subsequent investigation and Steward’s Inquiry into the photo finish, Victory Toast was declared first past the post,” he said.

“In recognition that these circumstances could leave the connections of Great Fox financially disadvantaged through no fault of their own, I will make a payment to make up the difference between first and second place prize money.”
