MAGIC MILLIONS JUVENILE CHAMPIONSHIP
SPORE-G3 SC (B) 1200M
As there was no suitable rider available, the Stewards gave permission for
claiming Jockey M Ewe to replace Jockey O Chavez on ENERGETIC WARRIOR.
ENERGETIC WARRIOR and DESTINY ACTION (A Munro) were both crowded
on jumping between KAISER (KB Soo), which shifted inwards and
AWAKENED (V Duric), which was carried outwards slightly by THE TUDOR (B
TZAR (O Placais) began awkwardly.
Near the 900m, DARK MATTER (C Williams) steadied away from the heels of
THE TUDOR after being carried inwards by TZAR. Jockey Placais was
subsequently shown the film of the incident and warned to exercise greater
care when shifting ground in future.
The Farrier reported that DARK MATTER returned having cast its off-fore
ENERGETIC WARRIOR, which raced poorly, will be required to pass a 1000m
gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to being declared to race again.
Jockey Williams, when questioned regarding the disappointing performance
of DARK MATTER, stated that the colt which was carrying Blinkers today for
the first time was slightly slow to begin and therefore raced further back than
anticipated. He added that approaching the 900m, when the pace steadied,
DARK MATTER commenced to overrace and was awkwardly placed on the
heels of THE TUDOR. He further stated that passing the 500m, he shifted
outwards to improve but the colt failed to run on and in his opinion, had been
disappointing. His explanation was noted. DARK MATTER was impounded
for routine veterinary and analytical examination. The Veterinary Surgeon
reported that the horse returned not striding out freely.
