EI CLASS ACTION CLOSING
A REAL WINNING DAY
Brad Stewart steered the Pat Duff trained Steel Zip to the post giving Lyndhurst Stud’s former grand old sire Canadian Silver yet another winner.

Steel Zip took out the Quality Listed Keith Noud Handicap and banked an impressive $64,000 now winning over $400,000 for connections from 28 starts for the 5yo gelding.
It finished off a real winning day for Queensland, once again our gallopers took out half the program at Eagle Farm.
And Glenlogan Park featured in three of those four events.
Real Saga started his winning day when debutant filly Real Surreal (pictured courtesty Dan Costello Racing) did plenty wrong in race 1, the Broncos 2yo Hcp over 1000m, but still proved too superior for her opposition.
EI CLASS ACTION CLOSING
The 2007 Equine Influenza Outbreak had a significant and disastrous impact on the breeding and racing industry.
Many people are still struggling with the impact this has had on their livelihoods.
A class action is being prepared by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers in the Federal Court for considerable losses suffered as a result of EI. They will argue that the Commonwealth failed to take reasonable care to prevent the escape of the virus.
All costs and risks for this class action will be fully underwritten by a litigation funder, there will be no out-of-pocket expenses ro risks to those who join the action. If the case is won fees will be paid from the total net settlement proceeds.
You must register now if you wish to participate as this will be a Closed Case and you will not be able to join once proceedings commence.
