RACE 7 (R1678) Class 4 1200m JERRYS SPECIAL HANDICAP
JAZZ IT UP, a course scratching which suffered respiratory infection, will be required to
pass a veterinary examination before being declared to race again.
COUP DA VINCI (S Salee) jumped awkwardly and shifted out.
TAVAN BOGD (M Yusri) was slow to begin.
NORTHERN GOLD (App CC Wong) was slowly away.
MARTEL (Y Aify) shifted in shortly after the start and in doing so, ALIEN (App SU
Lim) and GHOST SPEEDY (HS Gill) were crowded for room. GHOST SPEEDY was
steadied in this incident. Jockey Y Aify was warned and told to exercise more care when
shifting ground in future.
Post-race veterinary examinations of ALIEN, COUP DA VINCI, NORTHERN GOLD
and TAVAN BOGD revealed no obvious abnormality. NORTHERN GOLD, which
raced poorly, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before being declared to race
When questioned by the Stewards regarding the poor performance of NORTHERN
GOLD, Trainer Dr SH Tan said that he instructed App CC Wong to get a good jump and
ride a forward race. He added that although the trackwork of NORTHERN GOLD was
good, he did not understand why the gelding was favourite. Todays run was its first start
for him as the trainer of the gelding but he still expected NORTHERN GOLD to run
better than todays effort which was disappointing but could offer no tangible explanation
for that disappointing performance. The Stewards noted his explanation and reminded
Trainer Dr Tan regarding the rules in relation to in-and-out running and should
anything come to his attention that may have affected the geldings performance today,
he was to report the matter to the Stewards.
