Friday,  20 November 2015

 RACE 1:  CLASS 5 - 1900M (POLYTRACK)

Prior to the ‘ALL CLEAR’ being given, the Panel of Stewards inquired into the start of WINNING SUCCESS (M Zaki). After reviewing the films and taking evidence from Jockey Zaki, Trainer L Dragon and the Starter, the Stewards determined that just prior to the start, the Barrier Attendant assisting WINNING SUCCESS attempted to remove the blindfold, however, the blindfold was only partially removed. When the start was effected, the blindfold came off as WINNING SUCCESS jumped away. As such, the Stewards were of the opinion that this occurrence had not materially prejudiced the chances of WINNING SUCCESS and the gelding was not denied a fair start and WINNING SUCCESS was declared a runner.

SINGAPORE AUGUST MEETING 2015
FRIDAY, 21 AUGUST 2015:

RACE 3 [TF1050]

At the conclusion of an inquiry on Friday, 20 November 2015, App R Shafiq, the rider of KISS ME, in the presence of his master’s B Trainer, Garry Clutterbuck, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that whilst riding KISS ME in Race 3 at the Singapore Turf Club Meeting on Friday, 21 August 2015, after passing the 1000m, he allowed his mount to shift inwards, when insufficiently clear of GOLDEN MISSION (R Woodworth), which was proving difficult to settle, thereby taking that gelding in onto RACER KING (M Ewe), resulting in RACER KING being crowded for racing room and having to be checked. When deciding on penalty, the Stewards took into account his record, the degree of interference and carelessness and submissions from App Shafiq that he has been engaged to ride at the Singapore Race Meetings on Friday, 20 November 2015 and Sunday, 22 November 2015.

SUNDAY, 20 SEPTEMBER 2015:

RACE 4 [TF1153]

On Wednesday, 18 November 2015, the Stewards concluded an inquiry into the runs of BLACK FRIDAY (App M Jailani) and POWER KING (TH Koh). When questioned, App Jailani advised that he was instructed to race in a forward position from a wide barrier and he had to ride his mount along to obtain that position. Thereafter, it raced keenly after having POWER KING racing to its outside. Trainer Takaoka confirmed his instructions. Jockey Koh, the rider of POWER KING, stated that he was instructed to race in a forward position and then allowed his mount to travel where comfortable. After being a little awkward to jump, he had to ride his mount along to obtain a forward position. Trainer HK Tan confirmed these instructions. Whilst noting their instructions and that they did not ride their mounts along after the early stages, the Stewards expressed concern in particular to the fast sectional time run between the 1600m and the 1200m. Whilst Stewards were of the opinion, there was insufficient evidence to substantiate a charge. However, both Jockey Koh and App Jailani were both warned and advised that they would be expected to be more mindful of the sectional times run in similar circumstances in future.

OVER EASY had then shifted in marginally making the turn and carried TARAMEA inwards slightly, resulting in CARO INA, which was giving ground, being tightened and checked by its rider. In the circumstances, the Stewards were of the opinion that no blame could be attributed to any rider and as such, no further action was taken.
