RACE 3 (R1291) CLASS 5 1200M (Short Course A)
Acting on Veterinary advice that MISS THOUSAND (HS Gill) was lame near fore, the
Stewards ordered the withdrawal of MISS THOUSAND at 2:15pm. The mare will be required
to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again.
This race was delayed several minutes when JET COSMO (App W Faizal) became fractious
in the barrier and got its near side leg caught over the gates. JET COSMO was examined by
the Club Veterinary Surgeon and was passed fit to race. JET COSMO continued to be
fractious in the barrier and jumped awkwardly resulting in its rider becoming unbalanced.
NINETYSIX STAR (App A Farezul) was caught racing 4-wide throughout the event.
Approaching the 100M, MANGAKOKOMUKA (App M Sathiaa) shifted in abruptly when
being struck with the whip resulting in the rider having to stop and straighten.
The Stewards questioned App M Sathiaa, the rider of MANGAKOKOMUKA, in the presence
of his Master, Trainer F Maynard into the riding tactics adopted on the horse from the 700M
until the 300M. The Stewards were concerned that he failed to improve his position and also
failed to show sufficient vigour. After viewing the film, App M Sathiaa stated that he
concurred with the Stewards observations in relation to his vigour at this part of the race.
Trainer F Maynard agreed with the Stewards observations and could not offer any further
explanation. The Stewards, taking into consideration that App M Sathiaa had limited riding
experience, took no further action on this occasion, however, reminded him of his obligations
and informed him that this matter will be discussed further at the SLTC Apprentice Jockey
