A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on SECRET LIBERTY which revealed that the horse 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 two months, and may not start in any race for a period of three months, and then only after having satisfactorily passed a bleederís test.

App Wong, when questioned regarding the performance of RED GENERAL, stated that whilst the gelding was able to lead, it was still inclined to race greenly as it had at its first start. He further added that once under pressure upon entering the homestraight, RED GENERAL was reluctant to race in amongst other runners. App Wong also added that the gelding was tightened near the 250m and after this, did not respond to his riding and in his opinion, proved disappointing. His explanation was noted. A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on RED GENERAL which revealed no apparent abnormality.
