LA FAMILIA showed no early pace in the back straight.

MY SWALLOW raced tight on the turn at the 800m.

The Veterinary Surgeon reported that BLAZING STEED (KL Lee) returned having cast its off-fore plate.

 RACE 2:  MAIDEN - 1400M

Trainer R Lines was fined RM100 under MRA Rule 65(5)(c) for failing to produce the declared colours on EN LAUDER (J De Souza).

SKY WALKER (App S Shafrizal) jumped awkwardly outwards at the start and was a little slow into stride.

ARCHAEOLOGY (App Z Khairil) jumped awkwardly at the start and shortly afterwards, came together with ALL WEALTH (M Zairi).

A post-race veterinary examination of ALL WEALTH revealed no obvious abnormality. The gelding was impounded for further veterinary and analytical examination.

Trainer R Lines, when questioned regarding the apparent improved performance of EN LAUDER, advised the Stewards that in its previous run in Kuala Lumpur on 16 January 2016, the rain-affected "yielding" track had not suited EN LAUDER. Today’s "good" track in a weaker field, down a class, appears to suit EN LAUDER and would account for the improved performance. Trainer R Lines’ explanation was noted and his attention was drawn to the rules regarding "in- and-out" running under MRA Rule 117(3). He was further advised that the Stewards would monitor EN LAUDER’s performance and should it prove to be inconsistent in future, it may be suspended.

 RACE 3:  CLASS 5 - 1700M

Trainer R Lines was fined RM250 for negligence under MRA Rule 152(5)(a) for failing to seek the Stewards’ permission for Jockey J De Souza to ride 1½kg over on KINGSHIP ADMIRAL within the stipulated time.

Trainer R Lines was fined RM100 under MRA Rule 65(5)(c) for failing to produce the declared colours on OCEAN WAVE (C Goon).

After the start, OCEAN WAVE, EMPEROR QIAN LONG (App AM Aizat) and GEORGIE BOY (App KC Tham) were all a little slow into stride.

After being chased onto the pace, KINGSHIP ADMIRAL was pulling and difficult to settle in the back straight.

WORLD SUPERMAN (S Sandana), racing on the inside rail, laid outwards onto INI KALI (App AK Lim) approaching the 1400m.

Rounding the turn at about the 1400m, SIR CHALLAN (App WK Lee) checked outwards in a tightly-bunched field. FLY NOW (App S Shafrizal) and FLYING HORSE (F Yap) were both hampered and OCEAN WAVE was carried wide in this incident. The Stewards were satisfied that no individual rider was responsible for this incident.

PISCES GEM (J Shankar) ran about under pressure in the home straight.

A post-race veterinary examination of KINGSHIP ADMIRAL revealed no obvious abnormality. The gelding was impounded for further veterinary and analytical examination.

Post-race veterinary examinations of LITTLEBITOFJOY (App KC Wong) and GLORY AGE (App AK Lim) revealed no obvious abnormality. LITTLEBITOFJOY was impounded for further veterinary and analytical examination.

Trainer R Lines, when questioned regarding the apparent improved performance of FEISTY LEO (J De Souza), advised the Stewards that in its last outing in Ipoh on 3 January 2016, FEISTY LEO was caught wide from a bad draw and was unable to race up with the speed which was their intention. In today’s race, FEISTY LEO was drawn barrier 2 and was able to race closer to the pace which proved to be an advantage. Trainer R Lines’ explanation was noted and his attention was drawn to the rules regarding "in- and-out" running under MRA Rule 117(3).

 GENERAL

RACE 6 (R145), SATURDAY, 30 JANUARY 2016, 3RD DAY, PENANG JANUARY MEETING 2016

At the conclusion of an inquiry today (31 January 2016), after taking evidence from Trainer KF Wong and Jockey KL Lee, the trainer and rider of SMALL TIGER respectively, and reviewing the films, Jockey KL Lee pleaded guilty to a charge under MRA Rule 44(8) as read with 44(8)(a) in that whilst riding SMALL TIGER in the above race, he failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures to ensure that SMALL TIGER was given full opportunity of winning or of obtaining the best possible placing. The particulars of the charge were as follows:

(1) After a slow start, he failed to make sufficient effort to encourage SMALL TIGER to make up the lost ground and thereafter raced at the rear of the field, tailed off, until entering the home straight;

(2) In the home straight, he rode SMALL TIGER with insufficient vigour and determination when the gelding was running on.

When deciding on penalty, the Stewards took into consideration the facts of this case and Jockey KL Lee’s previous clean record. Jockey KL Lee was disqualified for a period of one year with immediate effect from Monday, 1 February 2016 and to expire on Tuesday, 31 January 2017, both days inclusive. In addition, he was fined a sum of RM10,000. He was advised of his right of appeal (5.20pm).
