After the race, Jockey J De Souza, the rider of HINT, lodged an objection regarding his
barrier gate No. 6 being slow to open. After hearing all the evidence and viewing the
video, the Racing Stewards declared HINT a non-runner under MRA Rule 115 due to the
gate being slow to open, resulting in him being denied a fair start. As such, all monies
invested on HINT were refunded.
