A post-race veterinary examination of CASPER (App M Ganeesh) revealed that the
gelding returned lame near fore and as such, will be required to pass a test
(1000M/vet) before being declared to race again.
Post-race veterinary examinations of FORGIVEN, BRING IT ON (J Low) and
UNDOUBTEDLY CLEVER (A Kumar) revealed no obvious abnormality.
When questioned regarding the performance of HOHOHO, Jockey J Shankar stated
that he was told to ride midfield, get the horse to settle early in order to see out the
extra distance as compared to its last start and in the straight, do his best to win the
race. He said that after getting a good jump, he managed to get HOHOHO back
midfield, but the horse was racing very keenly and was difficult to settle and made the
1200M turn wide. The horse continued to race very keenly and at the 800M, shifted
in abruptly over the heels of UNDOUBTEDLY CLEVER. In the straight, when
Jockey J Shankar asked for an effort, the horse failed to respond to his riding as
expected and in his opinion, was disappointing. His explanation was noted. A post-
race veterinary examination of HOHOHO revealed no obvious abnormality.
HOHOHO was impounded. As Trainer KL Chong had left the course, the Stewards
will be questioning him regarding the performance of HOHOHO at a date to be fixed.
The Stewards will be opening an Inquiry into the ride of Jockey A Kumar
(UNDOUBTEDLY CLEVER) at a date to be fixed.
