Baron Archer affair: No charges laid but case remains open

Date
June 29, 2015 – 6:09PM

The long-running investigation by Racing Victoria (RV) Stewards into the running of the Jason Warren-trained Baron Archer at Echuca earlier this year has ended with no charges being laid.

An inquiry started immediately after the race due to stewards’ concerns over the disappointing performance of Baron Archer.

Shortly after the inquiry started, wagering service provider Betfair notified the stewards of abnormally large betting on the race and, specifically, an abnormally high volume of matched bets on Baron Archer.

Stewards have interviewed a number of licensed participants and have analysed betting accounts held with various wagering service providers. Stewards have also analysed phone records provided by relevant licensed people.

Stewards have determined that no charges will be laid in relation to the betting on Baron Archer. However, should further information be obtained, stewards will re-open the investigation and take any necessary steps at that time.

Golden Horn looks good for Arc if conditions right

WORLD CLASS: an analysis of the international scene according to Racing Post Ratings

RESULTS in France, Ireland and Japan caused a number of movers in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe market last week. Let’s take a spin round the world.

FRANCE

Treve is still the Arc favourite and was shortened to a general 5-2 chance after winning the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud by a cosy length-and-a-quarter on Sunday. She remains the been-there-and-done-it choice.

She won the race last year despite losing all three of her warm-up races and against a backdrop of back and hoof problems. This year things have gone swimmingly with two cosy wins from two starts, so bookies may be right to go short odds on the budding history maker. Read the rest of this entry »

THE mass uncertainty over the Eagle Farm upgrade has become so desperate that the Brisbane Racing Club has explored going it alone and seeking a private loan to fund a key element of the project.

The State Government has committed to the Eagle Farm renovations but Queensland’s best track has been dormant for 12 months waiting for an approval to fund the tunnels.

Stablemates Dances On Stars and Estonian Princess still have something to give after their Queensland carnival campaigns and are set to run in the Civic Stakes at Rosehill.

Trainer Gerald Ryan said both were in good order with Saturday’s listed race a good option for stable stalwart Dances On Stars and a chance for Estonian Princess to post another win before she is retired to stud.

More prizemoney for Cranbourne, Bendigo and Ballarat Cups

Racing Victoria have announced significant prizemoney rises in some of Victoria’s most important country cups, a move that will allow local and overseas stayers more options of gaining a start in the Caulfield and Melbourne cups.

Spoils for this year’s Cranbourne Cup will increase from $100,000 to $300,000 and now will be viewed as owners and trainers last hope of squeezing into the Caulfield Cup or gaining a penalty for the Melbourne Cup.

Run on October 11, the Cranbourne Cup is the last significant Caulfield Cup lead-up and the $300,000 on offer could see those involved with a cup runner make their final bid for a start at Cranbourne.
