KORILYA STUD TROPHY
MILITARY ATTACK and JACK OF HEARTS , which were up 15kgs and 18kgs
respectively in body weight, and SAM THE MAN which was down 18gs in body weight
since their last runs, were checked by the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and
were passed fit to start.
REEL SCHMICK (J De Souza) and BUENA VISTA (I Fadzlei) bumped on jumping.
Near the 1000m, JACK OF HEARTS (S Salee) steadied momentarily off the heels of
ANAK PUJUT (WK Yan) which rolled inwards.
Near the 800m, REEL SCHMICK was bumped by SAM THE MAN (J Low) which
rolled outwards from behind the heels of MILITARY ATTACK (N Callow) and
CHARLY B (J Shankar) which rolled inwards.
CHARLY B raced wide throughout.
Jockeys J Shankar and J De Souza, the rider of CHARLY B and REEL SCHMICK
respectively, reported that their mount did not handle the going.
Post-race veterinary examinations of CHARLY B, REEL SCHMICK, BUENA VISTA
and GHOST SPEEDY revealed no obvious abnormality.
When questioned regarding GHOST SPEEDY missing the start, App S Shafrizal, in the
presence of his master, Trainer J Tan, stated that when the gates opened, GHOST
SPEEDY jumped awkwardly with its head up and lost ground, resulting in him becoming
unbalanced in the saddle. Trainer J Tan stated that GHOST SPEEDY has a history of
missing the start, hence he decided to race GHOST SPEEDY in blinkers and shadow roll
in order to improve its barrier manners. Due to its adverse history, GHOST SPEEDY
will be required to pass a test (1 starting stall) before being declared to race again.
