RACE 11 [TF0034]
CLASS 4 SC (A) 1200M
Due to a delay in the start time of Race 10, this race was put back ten
minutes and rescheduled to start at 1810Hrs.
GOLD CROWN (M Rodd) and ROCK EAGLE (K AIsisuhairi) bumped shortly
after the start.
Near the 1100m, SIAM SAPPHIRE (App CC Wong), which commenced to
prove difficult to settle, had to be restrained off the heels of KEVIN ELEVEN
(App R Zawari). SIAM SAPPHIRE continued to race keenly and shortly after,
shifted inwards and became awkwardly placed on the heels of GOLD CROWN.
SIAM SAPPHIRE was then steadied outwards making contact with ARAMCO (J
Powell), which became unbalanced and crowded SIAM SAPPHIRE inwards,
resulting in SIAM SAPPHIRE having to be checked off the heels of GOLD
ARAMCO raced wide throughout.
Near the 200m, ASTROSPEED (App S Shafrizal) checked when racing to the
inside of RUN IT TWICE (G Boss). An Inquiry into this incident will be held at
a date to be fixed.

SUNDAY, 01 JANUARY 2017:
RACE 10 [TF0010]
At the conclusion of an Inquiry on Monday, 02 January 2017, Jockey I Azhar,
the rider of BNEVAGIVUP, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under
MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that whilst riding BNEVAGIVUP in Race 10 at the
Singapore Turf Club Meeting on Sunday, 01 January 2017, approaching the
300m, he allowed his mount to shift inwards, when insufficiently clear,
resulting in THE WIND (I Saifudin) having to be checked. When deciding on
penalty, the Stewards took into account his record, guilty plea and the
degree of interference and carelessness. Jockey Azhar was suspended from
riding in races with effect from Tuesday, 03 January 2017 to Sunday, 08
January 2017 both dates inclusive (two Singapore Race Days) and was
advised of his Right of Appeal.
