RACE 1 (R044) CLASS 5 1300M (SHORT COURSE B)
STREET CHAMP became restless in the barriers and reared high in the air, dislodging
Jockey C Goon out the back gate. Jockey C Goon was examined by the Club Doctor and
was found unfit to fulfill his riding engagements for the remainder of the day. The gelding
was withdrawn by order of the Stewards at 1:20pm. Trainer C Leck will be advised that
STREET CHAMP will be required to pass a 1000M/vet (from the Starting Stall) test
before being declared to race again.
SUPER EIGHTYTHREE (SS Vanan) was slow to begin.
DUBLEO BEAUTY (HK Cheng) jumped outwards and bumped KIM SALUTE.
DUBLEO BEAUTY, PHILIP (J Low) and GOLD STAR PRINCESS (App S Zulfikri) all
raced wide throughout the event.
Making the turn at the 1000M, BLACK TRISTAR (App A Zaimuddin) raced
ungenerously and got its head up when racing to the inside of KING OF SEAL (HS Gill).
DUBLEO BEAUTY had a tendency to lay in between the 400M to the 200M and had to be
eased by its rider on several occasions.
Upon returning to scales, App M Hanif, the rider of KIM SALUTE, reported that his
saddle slipped sideways slightly during running.
The Stewards questioned Jockey J Low into the riding tactics of PHILIP in particular in the
home straight of the event. Jockey J Low reported that the gelding had a tendency to lay
inwards and over the concluding stages, failed to respond to his riding and that was his
reason for not riding out. The Stewards, after viewing the official patrol films, reminded
him of his obligations to ensure that at all stages, he rides fully to the end of the line.
The Stewards questioned Jockey J De Souza as to the riding tactics that were adopted on
NEW CLASSMATE. At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey J De Souza, the rider of
NEW CLASSMATE, was found guilty of a charge under MRA Rule 44(6) in that he failed
to ride his horse out to the end of the race to the satisfaction of the Stewards. The
particulars of the charge were that over the concluding stages, for 3 strides from the
winning post, he dropped his hands and as a result, he ran fifth, allowing JP REGIS (App
WK Lee) to finish fourth. In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that Jockey J De Souza was
riding a favourite in this event and the nose margin between the 2 runners. Jockey J De
Souza was suspended for a period of one (1) month with effect from 9 January 2017 and to
expire on 8 February 2017, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal.
