RACE 7 (R1056) CLASS 5 1100M (SHORT COURSE A)
Trainer F Maynard was fined RM500/- (RM250/- for each horse) under MRA Rule 109(1)
for failing to present LORD OF SHANGHAI and IRREPRESSIBLE at the pre-race
holding area within the stipulated time.
IRREPRESSIBLE (App T Krisna) and LORD OF SHANGHAI (S Ruzaini) bumped upon
JET ACE (J Shankar) reared upon jumping.
REACHING (App AM Aizat) had a tendency to over-race in the early stages, got its head
up and raced ungenerously.
RANGITAIKI (App M Hanif) raced fiercely in the early stages resulting in the rider
having to attempt to ease the gelding in an endeavour to settle the gelding.
Leaving the 400M, GRANDE AFFARE (App S Shafrizal) was held up for a clear run and
as a result, had to shift out abruptly over the heels of JET ACE in order to gain a clear run.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey S Ruzaini, the rider of LORD OF SHANGHAI,
pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that
approaching the 200M, he shifted outwards when insufficiently clear resulting in
GERMAN SPEED (R Woodworth) being taken out onto JET ACE and as a result, both
riders had to check their respective mounts.
In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey S Ruzainis guilty
plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. Acting on
the provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of Jockey S
Ruzainis suspension. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of two (2)
Malaysian race days with effect from 28 August 2016 and to expire on 4 September 2016,
both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (6:45pm).
