First emergency Provocative has gained a start in Saturday’s Group 1 $500,000 Treasury Casino & Hotel Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm following the scratching of South Australian filly Beluga Blue.

Morphettville trainer Leon Macdonald informed Racing Queensland stewards this morning that Beluga Blue would not be running in the fillies’ classic after sustaining a cut to her off hind leg following a stable accident yesterday.

Racing Queensland released the following statement today – “Racing Queensland Stewards have been advised by trainer Leon McDonald that Queensland Oaks runner BELUGA BLUE has sustained a laceration to the off hind leg following an incident in the filly’s stable yesterday.

Following a veterinary examination this morning, BELUGA BLUE has been withdrawn from the Queensland Oaks.

As a result, PROVACATIVE has gained a start in the Queensland Oaks and will be withdrawn from the Eagle Farm Cup.”

Cambridge trainer Tony Pike had also accepted with Provocative in the Group 2 $250,000 Pages Event Equipment Hire Eagle Farm Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm and she has subsequently been withdrawn from that, leaving seven runners to contest the 2200m staying event.

Provocative’s prizemoney earnings of $31,078 wasn’t enough to get her into the final eighteen horse field of the Queensland Oaks at acceptance time on Wednesday, and Pike had to sweat on one of the other fillies coming out.

The Zabeel filly was also out of luck at the barrier draw and after coming up with gate twenty in the original draw, looks likely to jump from sixteen when the field is reduced to limit of eighteen at final scratching time on Saturday morning.

Top Kiwi jockey Leith Innes takes over from Vinnie Colgan who rode the filly to a two and a quarter lengths win in a 2190m three year old handicap at Ipswich on May 18.

Provocative is prominent in the Queensland Oaks market order at $9 with Ladbrokes.com.au who have Falkenberg and Imposing Lass sharing favouritism at $7.

    Roligt att det är så många som verkar gilla Weldon. Hon har blivit lite bortglömd på sistone och har ju heller inte kommit ut med nytt lika ofta som förr. Jag har i och för sig inte varit så sugen de senaste 10 åren, drygt, heller. Roligt att hitta tillbaka till en favorit.

Júlia, eu ganhei um quarteto da mac que são 4 potinhos, 3 são em pó solto e um dourado que parece uma pastinha bem pigmentada(dourada), parece muito com essa que você usou, mas eu tenho dificuldade de passar com esse pincel, parece que o pigmento não fixa no pincel. Você conhece esse? Tem o mesmo efeito nesta maquiagem ou eu preciso passar uma sombra normal no mesmo tom por baixo? Obrigada por tirar minhas dúvidas. bjs!!

    Right. These teams really can’t execute. I don’t get how the Cs have gotten dumber with age but they have. It will be so confounding if either the Spurs or Thunder lose in the Finals. I will be completely mystified because these Eastern teams really can’t play offense. Their defense is good (despite obvious personnel weaknesses) but it can’t be credited with inspiring the kind of stupidity you describe there and that’s just what happened in regulation. The overtime was even uglier. Neither team deserved to win.

    Actually, we’ve kind of had that in place for some time. One argument I’ve read is that peak oil is actually the underlying trigger of the financial collapse as the the “real” money supply is the oil available for trade every day and that’s been shrinking for a while. It’s a idea worth researching.

    Sep26Brittany Adams Bryan, I have many friends that have the same sex attraction, and have had many conversations with them and others around this if they were “born this way” or not. and this has always been my thought process. We all have different temptations that we must go through but its our faith in christ that helps us fight these temptations. Thank you for describing it so eloquently.VA:F [1.9.20_1166](from 5 votes)

    As I have always maintained, to install or not to install is not a question of health (although it should be considered). It is a question of land ownership rights and the rights of municipalities to engineer the design of their own environments without having projects like this shoved down their collective throats. The people have voted, they don’t want it! To the Province – find another location. Simple!

    Também pensei que Ferrari e McLaren fossem andar na frente da RedBull, pois as ruas do Principado não exige muita pressão aerodinâmica. Pensei que os 30cv que os motores Renault tem a menos, fossem fazer falta a RedBull. Não fez. Não fez nem a própia Renault (Kubica). Se em Mônaco eles tomaram uma lavada, imagina na velossícima pista da Turquia.

    Do you think that this seperation of Netflix’s streaming business and DVD business will lead to an increase in movie/tv titles that will be available for streaming? From the article it seems like Netflix is doing this in large part, so that they can increase the amount of content available for streaming. Do you agree?
