 SELANGOR TURF CLUB
JANUARY MEETING
First Day,  Saturday,  9 January 2016

 RACE 1:  CLASS 5 - 1200M

DYNAMIC TRIO (App P Deneskumar) was fractious in the barrier prior to jumping, jumped awkwardly and shifted inwards resulting in the rider becoming unbalanced.

ROCK AND STONE (App M Hanif) jumped awkwardly resulting in the rider in becoming unbalanced.

Upon jumping, YES MADAM (App S Shafrizal) jumped inwards resulting in VISTA (A Nawawi) being crowded for room and lost ground as a consequence.

ELEVEN UP (App AK Lim) was slow to begin.

Approaching the 400m, VISTA was held up for a clear run behind EASY AHEAD (App S Zulfikri) and had to shift outwards to gain clear running over the final 300m.

ROCK AND STONE was held up for a clear run approaching the 300m behind runners in front, and shifted outwards to gain clear running approaching the 200m, and again found itself held up and failed to be fully tested.

Approaching the 200m, PRINCE NANO (S Ruzaini) shifted outwards resulting in DYNAMIC TRIO being momentarily inconvenienced and lost ground.

SAGAR’S EXPRESS (HS Gill) and EASY AHEAD were both caught racing 3-wide throughout the event.

The Stewards questioned Jockey S Ruzaini and Trainer R Lines into the disappointing performance of PRINCE NANO in this race. Jockey S Ruzaini explained that after jumping well, he had a favourable position, however approaching the 700m, the horse failed to respond to his riding and was unable to hold his position between runners and placed it under pressure, however the gelding failed to respond to his riding.

Trainer R Lines concurred with the Stewards’ observations in relation to the disappointing performance and could not offer any explanation as the gelding had worked extremely well throughout the week and expected a very good performance.

The Stewards informed Trainer R Lines to report back to the Stewards if there is anything amiss with the gelding on returning to his stable. Their explanations were noted for future reference. A post-race veterinary examination of PRINCE NANO revealed that the gelding returned with mild inflammation of the upper respiratory tract, and as such will be required to undergo a veterinary examination (at rest) before being declared to race again.

The Stewards questioned App M Hanif, in the presence of his master, Trainer P Fell, as to the racing tactics adopted on ROCK AND STONE from the 400m in this race in particular why he failed to attempt to take a run when the opportunity presented itself.

App M Hanif stated that shortly after entering the front straight, ROCK AND STONE had a tendency to lay inwards when being struck with the whip resulting in the gelding shifting inwards and he had to stop riding. He further stated that he did attempt to shift outwards to take a run to his outside, however, this gap further closed when the horse in front of him moved outwards and he found himself further held up. Trainer P Fell agreed with his apprentice’s comments.

The Stewards, after viewing the official patrol films and acting on their own observations, agreed with App M Hanif’s statements, however, informed him that in future he should endeavor to take runs when the opportunity presented themselves whenever possible.
