WHAT NOW 2012 STAKES
INITIATION SC (A) 1400M
SMART MONEY (B Vorster), which was slow to begin, was crowded shortly
after the start between LONHMIN (D Flores) and PODE OURO (App R
Rueven) which was carried inwards after being bumped by MR SPIELBERG (D
CONFIDENCE (App K AIsisuhairi) and GOLDEN JADE (A Munro) bumped on
jumping. Shortly after, GOLDEN JADE was then bumped by SINGSURAT (J
Low), which shifted outwards slightly.
Near the 1300m, SINGSURAT got its head up when being steadied off the
heels of BIG CITY (N Juglall). Shortly after, SMART MONEY steadied
outwards away from the heels of GOLDEN JADE.
CONFIDENCE was difficult to settle in the early and middle stages.
Shortly after passing the 300m, CHASE (App Z Zuriman) was taken outwards
to obtain clear running and in so doing, carried SINGSURAT wider on the
App Zuriman, the rider of CHASE, reported that the gelding had returned
with its saddle having shifted back during the race. This was subsequently
confirmed by the Veterinary Surgeon.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on LONHMIN which
revealed that the horse exhibited signs of heat stress. LONHMIN will be
required to pass a 1000m gallop trial and veterinary examination prior to
being declared to race again.
App Zuriman, when questioned regarding the run of CHASE, stated that
CHASE was a big striding horse that was reluctant to stride out amongst
runners. He also stated that shortly after entering the straight, he had
runners in front of him to the inside, as such, he elected to attempt to come
to the outside to obtain clear running. He further stated that CHASE had run
on well when placed under pressure after being able to obtain clear running
to the outside. His explanation was noted.
