EXALTATION travelled wide and without cover from the 800 Metres.
After shifting out to improve around the heels of SWEETLY BABY at the entrance to the Straight, OWNERS’ STAR was then directed back to the inside of that horse to obtain clear running.

A veterinary inspection of and SWEETLY BABY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
A veterinary inspection of VICTORIOUS SEEKER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
