Racing News:

Connections of Strathaird will have to wait a bit longer to find out if he makes it into the field for the Country Championship final at Randwick.

The Gary Lunn-trained gelding was promoted into the field for the $400,0000 race on April 1 when Racing NSW stewards were advised on Tuesday Not For Export had gone for a spell.

Not For Export finished third in the regional qualifying race at Dubbo on February 19 won by Stoneyrise while Strathaird was seventh.

The runner-up La La Loopsy is in the spelling paddock along with the horses placed fourth, fifth and sixth.

Dar Lunn, trainer of Not For Export, told stewards he had not withdrawn Not For Export who in fact was racing at Scone on Tuesday as a lead-up to the final.

Not for Export has been reinstated as the second western NSW representative in the Country Championship with Strathaird the emergency if he doesn’t run.

Stewards will also hold an investigation into the advice they received.
