RACE 1 (R1565) CLASS 5 1300M (SHORT COURSE B)
Jockey SS Vanan, the rider of CHAMPAGNE ROSE, was fined RM200/- for negligence
under MRA Rule 44(2) for failing to arrive on the course within prescribed time.
Upon jumping, DGREAT BATTALION (J Low) shifted outwards and made a contact
with STICK SEEKER (App S Uzair).
KING OF SEAL (App A Zaimuddin) and LUCOSTAR (J Low) raced fiercely in the early
DUBLEO BEAUTY (C Goon), MILITARY STAR (App W Faizal), LUCOSTAR (J Low)
and BULL AND BEAR (App S Zulfikri) were caught racing wide throughout.
Approaching 400M, KING OF SEAL had to checked off the heels of DUBLEO BEAUTY
and shift outwards to gain a clear run.
The Stewards questioned App A Zaimuddin the rider of the KING OF SEAL, in the
presence of his Master, Trainer BT Lim, into the tactics that were adopted on KING OF
SEAL in particular when approaching 400M, why he shifted outwards across the heels of
DUBLEO BEAUTY where in opinion of the stewards there were sufficient racing room to
the inside. App A Zaimuddin stated that in his opinion, it was better to shift wider entering the
straight where he would not be held up for a run. Trainer BT Lim agreed with his rider
comments and believed it was the best decision as per its previous winning performance.
Stewards noted their comments for future reference.
Trainer Anna Scott was at the lost to explain the improve performance of CLAIM (Y
Aify). However, informed the stewards given its previous race start, she has done very
little with the gelding and has freshen up the gelding. Stewards accepted her explaination,
however reminded her on her obligation in relation to the in and out of the running.
