another horse walking to the start. Arriving nearly 5 minutes after post time. A complete disgrace

Channons fault sending a wild unbroken horse to the races, must have gone to the Euros!

didn't have to wait long. 40/1shot walked to post at Sandown. 5 meetings. Already late off. Just has to stop this. You ride your horse down. If you cannot, you are withdrawn

Does it really matter? so you get a clash and might miss a bet in a race.There are plenty more to choose from

Look at this shambles

Clashes are proven to affect the Levy, so £ available to racing drops. Punctuality is a virtue and ought to be striven for. Just plain inconsiderate to treat customers and punters like this.

Amazing how nearly all races Start practically 'bang on time' in Australia.

11 Meetings  last night - just a few minutes apart  .... But very few clashes

You can put a line through Hexham for the rest of the day, fook knows when their races will pop up.

austrailia do alot of things right re start times and general protection of punters, I notice if a horse plays up in the stalls in oz they are always backed out checked and if they are not slightly right they are uk if a horse rears up smashes it's poor head and is basically half concussed the jockey just gets back on board and the starter raises its flag and race commences

Agree with Onlooker, we're always getting told we have the best trainers, stable lads/lasses and stall handlers in the world yet the Australians put us to shame when it comes to getting the horses in the stalls and the races off almost without fail within a minute of the scheduled time.

That said, some of the American tracks seem to totally disregard off times and load them when they feel like it. So as with most things in life, we can complain but things could be worse!

What is Chester's excuse? No horses loaded by off time.
Report SeeMoreBusiness June 12, 2021 2:12 PM BST
they only started going behind at post time. No apparent reason.  Trying their very best to delay Sandown....not that that needs doing as they are quite proficient at delaying themselves without any help

Somewhat Strange statement from Thornton on Sky/ATR

"We will be re-starting in about 14 minutes - The Jockeys are just coming into the Paddock ...


Thought THAT was the Delay .... As an AMBULANCE being in place on Course is a RULE of Racing.
Report Twoboyz June 12, 2021 2:56 PM BST
They have 2 ambulances on course for situations like today. So if one has to go racing can still carry on
Report onlooker June 12, 2021 3:29 PM BST
I was aware of that - Looks like 2 Ambulances in SUTU, though, May Not be a requirement nowadays.

Fairly sure it was, at one time - remembering many delays because of same.

Rather the BHYA look into blatant non triers than any horse arriving late to post. The cheating in the sport nowadays is totally out of control.

newmarket must be the worst track for going off late 5-10 minutes late for no reason throwing everything out for the whole day .its like we are HQ we can do what the **** we like

I never understand how they allow badly behaved horses to delay races at the expense of the majority (the well behaved). The starters should be told to be less tolerant.
