RACE 1 (R1674) Class 5 1700M
PERMATA KUCHING HANDICAP
TURBODRIVE, a course scratching as it sustained a tongue injury, will be required to
pass a veterinary examination before being declared to race again.
Near the 250M, Jockey M Wepner, the rider of STUB, momentarily lost the use of his
off-side rein before re-gathering it shortly afterwards.
The Veterinary Surgeon reported that PRINCIPAL MAN (App S Rosmizan) returned
lame in the near fore-leg and as such, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before
being declared to race again.
Post-race veterinary examinations of LITTLE RAINFOREST, FLASH GORDON,
LOVE ME, TIGER CAPTAIN and COSTAMIALOT revealed no obvious abnormality.
When questioned regarding his ride on LOVE ME, Jockey Y Aify stated that he was
instructed to get a good jump and sit where comfortable. He said that he was having his
first ride on the mare today and was advised by the Trainer, Mr P Pereira that LOVE ME
had a tendency to miss the start on occasions and that the mare finishes its races off
strongly. He said that after being slowly away, he urged his mount along in the early
stages and when his mount did not keep up with the pace, he decided to settle near the
back of the field. The Stewards told Jockey Y Aify that in future he would be expected
to use his initiative to persist with urging his mount along further than what he did on this
occasion in the early stages. He was told to ride all his mounts in such a manner so as to
leave no room for query in future.
