Rodder was riding Serene Tanie in the 1500, Corporate Interiors Australia Handicap.

The Stewards’ Reports states:

App. Ms T Rodder, rider of Serene Tanie, was issued with a charge under the provisions of AR.135(b) for failing to take all reasonable and permissible measures throughout the race to ensure her mount had full opportunity to win or to obtain the best possible place in the field, the particulars being that after having ridden her mount to take up a forward position in the early stages that i) from the 1100m to the 800m she failed to make sufficient effort to restrain her mount and/or ii) from the 800m she allowed her mount to stride forward and/or iii) passing the 600m, placed her mount under further pressure by riding it along. As part of the evidence in this inquiry, it was established that the first 1000m was run in 59.59sec and the first 800m in 47.73sec. After taking evidence from the trainer of Serene Tanie, Mr R Laing, who was also representing Ms Rodder’s interests at her request, an application was then received after the issuing of a charge for senior rider C Symons to also represent Ms Rodder in the inquiry. The Stewards, given the amount of evidence that had been taken in the absence of C Symons, adjourned the inquiry for all parties to attend the offices of Racing Victoria at 10.00am on Thursday, 24 November.

27-yr-old Talia Rodder has had 12 rides at Moonee Valley over the last 12 months winning one and running second twice.
