HIMALAYA DRAGON (S John), which jumped away awkwardly, was crowded
on jumping between ANGRY CAT (K Yazid) and JET MAN (M Nunes), which
Near the 300m, FUKU ICHIBAN (I Saifudin) checked when racing between
JET MAN and SUGAR MAN (B Vorster). At a subsequent Inquiry, Jockey
Vorster was found guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule
44(9)(a)(ii) in that near the 300m, he allowed his mount to shift outwards,
when insufficiently clear, whilst riding it along, thereby crowding FUKU
ICHIBAN, which checked and lost ground. When deciding on penalty, the
Stewards took into account his record and the degree of interference,
carelessness. He was suspended from riding in races with effect from
Monday, 17 March 2014 to Sunday, 23 March 2014 both dates inclusive (two
Singapore Race Days) and was advised of his Right of Appeal.
Near the 200m, HIMALAYA DRAGON, which laid inwards, had to be steadied
off the heels of JET MAN, which rolled outwards slightly.
Jockey Yazid, when questioned regarding the run of ANGRY CAT, stated that
his instructions were to settle in the midfield position where comfortable.
However, despite his efforts, ANGRY CAT showed no early pace and he found
himself further back than expected. Trainer HW Tan confirmed the
instructions. Their explanations were noted.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on BLUE DIAMOND (D
Beasley) which revealed no apparent abnormality. BLUE DIAMOND, which
raced poorly, will be required to pass a 1000m gallop trial and veterinary
examination prior to being declared to race again.
