RACE 3 [TF1253]
CLASS 4 POLYTRACK 1700M
BOWIE KNIFE (A Munro) was slow to begin. Subsequent to the race, after
reviewing the films and prior to the All Clear being given, the Stewards
inquired into the start afforded to BOWIE KNIFE. Evidence was taken from
the Starter and Jockey Munro. It was established that the blindfold on
BOWIE KNIFE was taken off prior to the start. Then as the start was
effected, BOWIE KNIFE became restless and sat backwards, thereby being
slow to jump. Jockey Munro confirmed that the Barrier Attendant assisting in
BOWIE KNIFEs barrier did not hinder the horse or prevent it from jumping.
As such, the Stewards were of the opinion that BOWIE KNIFE was not denied
a fair start and BOWIE KNIFE was declared a runner.
BOWIE KNIFE, which commenced to race keenly approaching the 1500m,
had to be eased outwards when awkwardly placed on the heels of
BORSALINO (M Nunes).
Approaching the 1400m, BUNGAE (App R Shafiq) steadied when racing up
onto the heels of YES BABA (B Vorster).
BOWIE KNIFE and BORSALINO were both difficult to settle in the middle
Near the 1100m, BUNGAE checked when racing to the outside of
BORSALINO. An Inquiry into this incident will be held at a date to be fixed.
BORSALINO raced wide from the 1000m.
Approaching the 500m, YES BABA shifted outwards and made contact with
LORD ROBERTO (L Allpress) laid inwards under pressure in the straight.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on YES BABA which
revealed no apparent abnormality.
BORSALINO was impounded for routine veterinary and analytical
examination. The Veterinary Surgeon reported no apparent abnormality.
