RACE 2 (R266) CLASS 5 1200M (SHORT COURSE A)
The start of this race was delayed when RUBICON (App AK Lim) proved difficult to be
loaded into the barriers. RUBICON will be required to pass a 1000M/vet (from the starting
stall) test before being declared to race again. The Club Veterinary Surgeon reported that
RUBICON returned having bled. In terms of MRA Rule 92(3), it will not be permitted to
canter or gallop on the main training tracks of any racecourse for a period of 2 months, be
entered for a bleeders test for a period of 3 months, start in any race for a period of 3
months after such declaration, and then only after passing the bleeders test.
MY BEAUTY (App T Krisna) which dislodged its rider en route to the start, was
examined by the Club Veterinary Surgeon and passed fit to take its place in the field.
Upon jumping, BAIL OUT (HK Cheng) reared high in the air and as a result, was slow to
begin. When questioned, Jockey HK Cheng reported that his horse was in the barrier for
too long and this may have contributed to this incident.
CIVIL UNION (A Nawawi) and BAIL OUT both raced wide throughout the event.
Q NINE MAC (HS Gill) had a tendency to lay outwards approaching the front straight on
the run to the finish.
Shortly after entering the front straight, ACME (S Ruzaini) had to be severely checked by
its rider when the gelding had a tendency to lay outwards over the heels of MY BEAUTY
which rolled in marginally and as a result, lost ground.
Over the concluding stages of the event, JERAM GLORY (M Ganeesh) laid in under
The Stewards questioned Jockey HS Gill into the performance of Q NINE MAC in this
event. Jockey HS Gill reported that after beginning well and over-racing, he found himself
leading the event. Jockey HS Gill further stated that the gelding continued to have a
tendency to lay outwards and over-raced, and he placed the gelding under pressure but it
failed to respond to his riding. He further explained that carrying a heavy weight may have
contributed to the disappointing performance of the gelding.
After viewing the official patrol films of the geldings previous race starts, the Stewards
were satisfied with the explanations given and noted his comments for future reference.
