VIVA PERAK HANDICAP
DRUNKEN PARTNERS (K Eirwan) was checked by the Veterinary Surgeon at the
barrier and passed fit to start.
Acting on a report from the Official Starter that SUPERB INCREDIBLE (App R
Rueven) was difficult to be loaded, SUPERB INCREDIBLE will be required to pass a
test (1 starting stall) before being declared to race again.
BELWINS (App M Razali) was slowly away and shortly afterwards, steadied when
crowded for room between FANTASTIC GIFT (App KY Yap) which rolled outwards
and SUPERB INCREDIBLE which rolled inwards.
MAJESTIC AMETHYST (BN Shahrul) and GHOST SPEEDY (HS Gill) were difficult
to settle in the early and middle stages.
GHOST SPEEDY raced wide throughout.
Post-race veterinary examinations of MAJESTIC AMETHYST, BELWINS, LEGAL
LORD (J Shankar) and GHOST SPEEDY revealed no apparent abnormality.
The Veterinary Surgeon reported that FANTASTIC GIFT returned with epiglotic
entrapment and as such, will be required to undergo corrective surgery and pass a test
(1000M/vet) before being declared to pass again.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey K Eirwan, the rider of DRUNKEN PARTNERS,
pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that near the
300M, he allowed his mount DRUNKEN PARTNERS to shift outwards when
insufficiently clear of MAJESTIC AMETHYST (BN Shahrul) thereby causing that
gelding to check and lose ground and DALMATION (App Z Khairil) to be bumped
wider on the track.
When deciding on penalty, the Stewards took into account Jockey K Eirwans guilty plea
and his riding record. Jockey K Eirwans licence to ride in races was suspended for a
period of four (4) race days with effect from Sunday, 31st March 2013 and to expire on
Sunday, 7th April 2013, both dates inclusive, to be served consecutively to his current
suspension which expires on 30th March 2013. In addition, he was fined the sum of three
thousand Malaysian Ringgit (RM3,000/-). He was advised of his Right of Appeal
