“Easily there was a mistake in where the footage. I don’t understand how that works off the field but it was easily a misreading between the director and the arbiter about how they were playing the clip backwards and on. And yes, unfortunately for us, I was induced at one point that we had the gate and the arbiter gave out. But the good thing about that was the right decision was made in the end, ” remarked UP trainer Jon Lewis.

Once she saw the clip she was induced too, but also there was some issue in the review and since we were sure of it we went to the on- field arbiter, who told us that they were going to review it “
