RACE 1 (R561) Class 5 -1400M (Long Course A)
VISTA (App M Hanif) was slow to begin.
DRAGON EIGHT (LL Tai) and DUEL OF HONOUR (App AK Lim) bumped on
VISTA raced wide from the 1000M and progressed forward to obtain a position behind
the leaders at the 600M.
Rounding the turn at the 500M, HAHA BABE (L Sofhan) had to be eased off the heels
of DRAGON EIGHT (LL Tai) and shift inwards to gain a clear run.
Racing to the 350M, JAI HO (R Burnett) was tightened for room when CELAENO
(App KC Wong) shifted outwards and VISTA shifted inwards. Shortly after this
incident, COSTAMIALOT (J Low) shifted in under pressure and as a result, bumped
Racing to the 200M, BLUE DELAGO (App SU Lim) shifted in under pressure
resulting in ZAC FLAMBOYANT (App WT Chung) having to be steadied by its rider.
Over the final 100M, LANCELOT (S Salee) had a tendency to shift out under pressure.
The Stewards questioned App WT Chung, the rider of ZAC FLAMBOYANT, as to the
racing tactics adopted on that gelding in this race, in particular as to why he got so far
back in the early stages from Barrier 1. App WT Chung explained that ZAC
FLAMBOYANT sat back in the barriers upon jumping and he urged the gelding
forward and approaching the 1000M, had to be steadied off the heels of BLUE
DELAGO when that horse raced fiercely at this point. He further explained that he
urged ZAC FLAMBOYANT throughout the event and could not offer any further
explanation. The Stewards noted his comments for future reference.
