The Chris Waller trained Egg Tart is having her injured near side eye treated and will have a final vet’s inspection on Friday afternoon to determine if she takes her place in the field.

Egg Tart has been treated with anti-inflammatories and antibiotics for an eye irritation since her last start second to Deploy in the Group 2 $200,000 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill on September 9.

Racing New South Wales Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian Dr Craig Suann inspected Egg Tart earlier in the week and deemed her unfit to start on Saturday and Racing New South Wales vet Dr Tania Selig also failed to give the Sebring mare the all clear today for the weekend.

While Dr Tania Selig and Waller’s stable vet Dr Ross Alexander both agreed that Egg Tart’s eye was on the mend slowly, it would find it hard to fully recover in time now that the medication has to be stopped in the lead up to to race day.

“Dr Suann will inspect Egg Tart tomorrow morning to gauge if there is any improvement with the eye and a final decision as to whether the mare takes her place in the Epsom Handicap will be made during a final inspection on Friday afternoon,” Racing New South Wales released in a statement today.”

Melbourne Cup winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy has been booked to ride Egg Tart who has drawn the inside barrier in the fourteen horse Epsom Handicap field.

The Dual Oaks winner is coming off a first up second to Deploy in the Theo Marks Stakes and is marked as the second favourite at $6 for the Epsom Handicap at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Pat Webster trained Happy Clapper with Blake Shinn booked to ride, is the solid $3.10 favourite following excellent lead up form that saw him with a first up win in the Group 2 $200,000 Tattersalls Club Tramway Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on September 2 followed by a brave second to Winx in the Group 1 $500,000 Colgate Optic White Stakes (George Main Stakes) (1600m) at Randwick a fortnight later.

    The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!! THE EARTH IS FUCKING FLAT!!!!!!
