PETER Gelagotis on Friday became the second trainer this week to be suspended for three months for race-day treatment.

The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board found the Moe trainer guilty of using medication on Axis Point before the mare was engaged to run at Warrnambool on May 5.

Gelagotis’s suspension begins on Friday. Caulfield trainer Brendan McCarthy was suspended on Wednesday.

LILY EYES CAULFIELD CUP

GAI Waterhouse was philosophical after scratching second favourite Bohemian Lily from today’s Queensland Oaks at Doomben.

“It was with great sadness I had to speak to her owner in England to tell him she had sustained a cut to her left elbow,’’ Waterhouse said yesterday. “It’s not life threatening, but she can’t run for a couple of weeks.”

Waterhouse will spell Bohemian Lily and bring her back for the Caulfield Cup. “It might be a blessing in disguise as she will be nice and fresh ready for the spring,” she said.

BONDEIGER BACK IN WORK

DANNY O’Brien is pleased he missed the autumn carnival with Victoria Derby runner-up Bondeiger, who has returned to work.

“He had a few niggles after the spring and we decided to miss the autumn,” he said. “It was a testing (ATC) Derby, so I’m glad we missed it. He’s come back in great shape.”

O’Brien will set Bondeiger for the Caulfield Cup.

His Geelong Cup winner Caravan Rolls On has also returned to work and will be set for that race again.

ON-COURSE BOOKIE BOOST

RACING Victoria yesterday announced its 12-month terms for wagering service providers to publish and use Victorian race fields from July.

It has increased the threshold from $5.5 million to $15 million before providers have to pay more than a 1 per cent fee on turnover.

This is to help smaller providers, including on-course bookmakers, remain viable.

RVL will also introduce flat rates on turnover for betting exchanges: 1 per cent for standard meetings; 1.5 per cent for Group and Listed meetings; and 2 per cent for 10 premier meetings.
