When questioned regarding the performance of PRIME MOVER, Jockey J Shankar
stated that he was instructed to get a good jump and lead, however, in the early stages
of the race, his mount was racing ungenerously and was unable to lead as instructed
due to the geldings action and raced further back than anticipated. He further stated
that PRIME MOVER kept racing ungenerously and dipped on numerous occasions
and felt that PRIME MOVER did not handle the track condition today and he elected
to ease his mount down in the straight, as he felt that there was something amiss with
the gelding. His explanation was noted. A post-race veterinary examination of
PRIME MOVER revealed no obvious abnormality. PRIME MOVER which raced
poorly, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being declared to race again.
