JANUARY MEETING
Second Day,  Sunday,  10 January 2015

 RACE 1:  CLASS 5 - 1600M

DRAGON EIGHT (Lou Ho) jumped awkwardly.

JERAM STRIKE (App SU Lim) was slow to begin and had a tendency to over-race in the early stages of the event.

BOWEN LAD (M Wepner) jumped awkwardly resulting in the rider in becoming unbalanced.

Approaching the 400m, AMONGST THE STARS (App P Deneskumar) had a tendency to lay in despite the efforts of its rider. AMONGST THE STARS laid in for the majority of the straight.

Approaching the 300m, MAN OF THE WORLD (App AM Aizat) and DRAGON EIGHT had tendencies to lay out under pressure resulting in both riders having to stop and straighten.

IKTO (App P Haris), which was beaten 22 lengths, will be required to pass a 1000m/vet test before being declared to race again for having a poor performance.

Upon returning to scales, App S Shafrizal, the rider of FRENCH EXPRESS, reported that his horse was caught wide throughout.

The Stewards questioned App M Hanif and Trainer SB Tan into the very disappointing performance of the last start winner, LITTLE MAN.

App M Hanif stated that after jumping well, LITTLE MAN failed to show his usual early pace as it had on previous start and failed to respond to his vigourous riding. He further stated that from the 900m, he had several looks down to the horse’s legs as in his opinion, he felt that something may have been amiss. Approaching the 400m, he was able to catch the field and place the gelding under pressure in the home straight, however, it failed to respond to his riding and finished well-back.

Trainer SB Tan was totally at a lost in relation to the disappointing performance as he had supported LITTLE MAN and it had worked extremely well throughout the week and expected a winning performance.

The Stewards noted their comments for future reference. A post-race veterinary examination of LITTLE MAN revealed that it was lame off hind and as such will be required to pass a 1000m/vet test before being declared to race again. The gelding was impounded for routine analytical and veterinary examination.

 RACE 2:  CLASS 4 - 1400M

The Stewards questioned Trainer BT Lim and Jockey H Bukhari into the intended tactics that would be adopted on SWISS BANK in today’s event. Trainer BT Lim stated that in his opinion, the way the track had been racing may be advantageous to his horse to be more forward than it has been in its normal racing pattern. Jockey H Bukhari agreed with his trainer’s comments. The Stewards noted their comments and a public announcement was made to the effect.

Jockey J De Souza was fined RM500 under MRA Rule 107(10) in that he failed to make the carded weight on IMMORTALITY. The Stewards permitted Jockey HS Gill to be the rider of IMMORTALITY.

The start of this race was delayed when HEIRRO (M Wepner) became fractious, cast its off-fore plate and was reshod. HEIRRO was examined by the Club Veterinary Surgeon and was passed fit to race.

TEARS TO DIAMONDS, which was examined by the Club Veterinary Surgeon behind the barriers at the request of Jockey C Goon, was found to be lame near-fore and as such will be required to pass a 1000m/vet test before being declared to race again.

Approaching the 300m, FULL MEANING shifted out and made contact with FRANKLY MY DEAR (R Burnett).

Approaching the 200m, FRANKLY MY DEAR hung inwards when being struck with the whip which resulted in FULL MEANING being severely checked by its rider and lost its rightful position when racing on the outside of IMMORTALITY.

An objection was lodged by Jockey Lou Ho, the rider of FULL MEANING, placed fourth, against FRANKLY ME DEAR (R Burnett) being declared the winner, on the grounds of alleged interference at approximately the 300m mark. After considering the evidence, the Racing Stewards were of the opinion that the alleged interference had not affected the result of the race. The objection was overruled and the result stood.

The Stewards took evidence tendered by Jockey Lou Ho and Jockey R Burnett during the protest hearing and also further evidence from both riders.

At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey R Burnett, the rider of FRANKLY MY DEAR, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that whilst riding FRANKLY MY DEAR at approximately the 250m, he allowed his mount to shift in when using the whip resulting in interference to FULL MEANING (Lou Ho) resulting in that horse having to be checked.

In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey R Burnett’s guilty plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. Acting on the provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of Jockey R Burnett’s suspension. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of four Malaysian race days with effect from 17 January 2016 and to expire on 31 January 2016, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his right of appeal (3:30pm).

The Stewards questioned Jockey H Bukhari as to the tactics that were adopted on Q NINE MYSTIC in particular from the 1000m to the 400m when Jockey H Bukhari failed to take a position closer to the running rails when an opportunity presented itself. Jockey H Bukhari stated that his instructions were to sit where comfortable and after jumping well, he urged the gelding forward 3-wide in an endeavor to gain a handy position and raced towards the 600m, in his opinion he was unable to sit closer to the rails as there were two horses to his inside and he thought he would not be two lengths clear to shift closer to the rails, and elected to race 4-wide at this point. He also stated that Q NINE MYSTIC failed to run on and finished at the rear of the field.

The Stewards were not fully satisfied with Jockey H Bukhari’s explanation as they were of the opinion that he may have been able to shift to a position outside the leader, MIA (C Goon) and not cover extra ground at the 600m as he did on this occasion. The Stewards gave Jockey H Bukhari the "benefit of the doubt" on this occasion, however, strongly advised him that a repetition of this type of riding will be unacceptable.

AMENDMENT
RACE 1 (R43), SATURDAY, 9 JANUARY 2016, SELANGOR TURF CLUB JANUARY MEETING 2016

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 no significant finding.

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.

A post-race veterinary examination of ROCK AND STONE 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.
