SPLITSVILLE (I Santana) reared as the start was effected and lost ground.
SPLITSVILLE will be required to pass one starting stall test prior to being
declared to race again in terms of MRA Rule 78(2).
BEAT TO QUARTERS (S Anandan) began awkwardly and lost ground.
SEACREST (S Sam) was slow to begin.
Shortly after the start, TERMINATOR (O Chavez) shifted outwards abruptly
and made heavy contact with SURPRISE SURPRISE (App R Shafiq) and
CHIVE BLOOM (D Beasley).
Passing the 900m, ROYAL STYLE (I Saifudin), which was overracing, steadied
away from the heels of MY PREROGATIVE (J Saimee), which rolled inwards.
ROYAL STYLE then shifted inwards abruptly bumping CHIVE BLOOM in onto
HIGGS BOSON (G Cheyne).
ROYAL STYLE raced wide throughout.
WOLFSBANE (J Low) raced wide without cover throughout.
Approaching the turn into the straight, SURPRISE SURPRISE momentarily
steadied when WARSPIRIT (App WL Tan) rolled inwards marginally.
In the early part of the straight, WARSPIRIT had difficulty obtaining a clear
MY PREROGATIVE laid inwards under pressure over the concluding stages.
App Tan, the rider of WARSPIRIT, reported that his mount was not striding
out freely. A subsequent veterinary examination confirmed this.
SINGAPORE JUNE MEETING 2012
FRIDAY, 01 JUNE 2012:
RACE 6 [TF737]
At the conclusion of an Inquiry on Sunday, 03 June 2012, Jockey J
Verenzuela, the rider of PERFECT KID, was found guilty to a charge of
careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that whilst riding PERFECT KID
in Race 6 at the Singapore Turf Club Meeting on Friday, 01 June 2012, near
the 1000m, he did make insufficient effort to prevent his horse from shifting
inwards, resulting in DANNY BOY (E Aslam) having to check. When deciding
on penalty, the Stewards took into account his record, the degree of
interference and carelessness and submissions from Jockey Verenzuela that
he has been engaged to ride at the Singapore Race Meetings on Friday,
08 June 2012 and Sunday, 10 June 2012. The Stewards determined to
suspend his licence to ride in races and acting under MRA Rule 48(5), the
commencement of the suspension was deferred to begin on Monday,
11 June 2012 until Friday, 22 June 2012 both dates inclusive (three
Singapore Race Days). He was advised of his Right of Appeal.
