SINGAPORE FEBRUARY MEETING 2012
FRIDAY, 10 FEBRUARY 2012:
RACE 9 [TF219]
On Sunday, 19 February 2012, the Stewards concluded an Inquiry into the
reasons for STREET RUFFIAN (O Chavez) having to check when racing
between AFFIRMATION (G Cheyne) and AWAKENED (S Baster) near the
250m. It was established that near the 250m, AWAKENED shifted outwards
away from the heels of NATURAL NICE (KB Soo), which shifted in under
pressure. As a result STREET RUFFIAN had to be eased off the heels of
AWAKENED. In the circumstances, no blame could be attributed to any rider
and as such, no further action was taken. However, Jockey Baster and
Jockey Soo were both warned and advised that they must exercise greater
care when shifting ground in future.
