RACE 11 [TF761]
CLASS 4 LC (C) 1600M
Prior to the running of Race 11, Trainer S Baertschiger advised the Stewards
that his instructions to Jockey S Sam, the rider of SOLID WOOD, if
circumstances permit, from a wide barrier to try and ride from behind.
Acting on veterinary advice that MECCA STAR (App R Shafiq) fractured its
off-hind leg in the Pre-Race Holding Area, the Race Meeting Stewards
ordered its withdrawal at 1712Hrs. The Veterinary Surgeon subsequently
reported that MECCA STAR was humanely euthanised.
RECYCLE WORLD (J Saimee) was slow into stride.
COOL CAT (E Aslam) raced keenly in the backstraight.
SOCIAL NETWORK (TO Chang) raced wide without cover from the 1000m.
Passing the 300m, JACK BAUER (S Anandan) was hampered when SOCIAL
NETWORK laid inwards. JACK BAUER then became awkwardly placed on the
heels of DEVONSHIRE (D Beasley).
Approaching the 200m, DAADS THE WAY (O Bosson) steadied when
disappointed for a run between LADY TRIO (O Chavez), which rolled
outwards and JACK BAUER, which shifted inwards away from SOLID WOOD.
RECYCLE WORLD, which was following, was hampered in consequence.
The Farrier reported that COOL CAT returned having cast its near-fore plate.
Jockey Saimee, when questioned regarding the run of RECYCLE WORLD,
stated that from a wide barrier, he was instructed to settle back in the field
and attempt to obtain a position close to the rail. He added that the gelding
travelled well in the early and middle stages and after making the turn into
the homestraight, he was obliged to shift outwards when THINK AHEAD (I
Saifudin) commenced to give ground in front of him. He further stated that
when following DAADS THE WAY, he then had to shift outwards when
DAADS THE WAY suffered interference and when clear in the straight,
RECYCLE WORLD found the line well. His explanation was noted. A
subsequent veterinary examination was requested on RECYCLE WORLD
which revealed no apparent abnormality.
Jockey B Vorster, the rider of FOUNTAIN, reported that the gelding blundered
on a couple of occasions over the final 200m and for this reason, he did not
pressure it in the run to the line. A subsequent veterinary examination
revealed no apparent abnormality. FOUNTAIN, which raced poorly, will be
required to pass a 1000m gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to
being declared to race again.
