RACE 5 (R866) Maiden 1300M
INTO THE STORM, a course scratching as it sustained a bruised sole off fore, will be
required to pass a test veterinary examination before being declared to race again.
KNIGHTSBRIDGE which was down 22kgs in body weight since its last run, was
checked by the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and was passed fit to start.
Trainer BT Lim was fined RM100/- under MRA Rule 65(5)(c) for failing to produce the
declared colours for LASER GUIDED (App R Fakruddin).
EASY AHEAD (App MM Firdaus), which jumped awkwardly and lost considerable
ground, will be required to pass a test (1 starting stall) before being declared to race
WELL NATURE (I Azhar), SHINING SUPREME (App S Shafrizal), SPEED STAR (J
Low) and KIM PROTECTOR (KY Yap) were all slowly away.
KIM PROTECTOR showed no early pace despite being urged along.
Near the 300m, EASY AHEAD steadied off the heels of KATIE ROSE (L Sofhan)
which was taken inwards by SHIOK SHIOK (App CK Tan) which shifted inwards. App
CK Tan will be warned to exercise more care when shifting ground in future.
COIL (M Helmy) raced wide throughout.
Post-race veterinary examinations of KATIE ROSE, KIM PROTECTOR, SHIOK
SHIOK, WELL NATURE and EASY AHEAD revealed no apparent abnormality.
KATIE ROSE, SHIOK SHIOK and EASY AHEAD, which raced poorly, will each be
required to pass a test (1000m/vet) before being declared to race again.
A post-race veterinary examination of LASER GUIDED revealed that the gelding
returned exhibiting signs of respiratory distress and as such will be required to pass a test
(1000M/vet) before being declared to race again.
When questioned regarding the performance of KNIGHTSBRIDGE, Jockey N Callow
stated that he was instructed to get a good jump, sit midfield and make his move near the
600m. He said that in the back straight, he was forced to travel four deep and cover
extra ground and in the home straight when he asked for an effort, his mount did not
respond as expected and was disappointing. He further said that KNIGHTSBRIDGE did
not handle the soft going today and in his opinion, the gelding would be more suited over
a longer journey. His explanation was noted. KNIGHTSBRIDGE was impounded.
