PRIDE AND LOVE HANDICAP
TRACK HERO, which was up 20kgs, and ILLUSIONIST which was down 17kgs in
body weight since their last runs, were checked by the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to
the race and were passed fit to start.
Trainer K Coetzee was fined RM100/- under MRA Rule 65(5)(c) for failing to produce
the declared colours for SAKKIE SAKKIE (M Djulkifli).
SAKKIE SAKKIE and EMPEROR QIAN LONG (Lou Ho) were slowly away.
On jumping, FAIRBORN (L Sofhan) was crowded for room between I WISH (C Goon)
which jumped awkwardly outwards and MID SUN (J Chuah) which jumped awkwardly
MID SUN raced keenly in the early and middle stages.
Near the 300M, HAIRY BOY (App CK Tan) steadied off the heels of ILLUSIONIST (J
Shankar) which raced greenly and was running about under pressure.
Post-race veterinary examinations of EXCELLENT GOAL (J Low), KAKA (App SL
Lam), TRACK HERO (D Bonilla), AFFIRMATIVE ACTION (TM Wan),
ILLUSIONIST and MID SUN revealed no obvious abnormality. AFFIRMATIVE
ACTION which raced poorly, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being
declared to race again.
The Veterinary Surgeon reported that FAIRBORN returned lame off hind-leg and will be
required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being declared to race again.
When questioned regarding the performance of TRACK HERO, Jockey D Bonilla stated
that he was instructed to get a good jump, sit midfleid and do his best in the straight. He
stated that TRACK HERO was slow into stride and thereafter he was trapped wide and
racing with no cover and near the 600M when he asked for an effort, TRACK HERO did
not respond as expected. He said that in the home straight, he changed his whip from the
right hand to the left hand in order to try and improve his position but again, TRACK
HERO did not respond and was disappointing. His explanation was noted. TRACK
HERO, which raced poorly, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being
declared to race again. TRACK HERO was impounded.
