RACE 3 (R1688) Class 4 1300m LORENZO JEWELLERY TROPHY
ACME (App S Shafrizal) threw its head up on jumping.
Post-race veterinary examinations of PIED PIPER (WK Yan), FUNCA (Y Aify), BIG
EGO (TM Wan) and HERE COMES THUNDER (J Chuah) revealed no obvious
abnormality. FUNCA which raced poorly, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet)
before being declared to race again.
Jockey TM Wan was questioned in relation to BIG EGOs start. Jockey TM Wan stated
that BIG EGO which had been standing calmly in the barrier, jumped awkwardly and
was slowly away and he became unbalanced in the saddle. The Stewards noted his
explanation, however informed Jockey TM Wan that the Stewards were not entirely
satisfied with his efforts to straighten BIG EGO in the barrier when the gelding turned its
head to the right side of the barrier, and warned him that failure to make a proper effort to
have his horses stand up correctly in an endeavor to get a good jump may lead to more
sterner action in future.
Trainer KF Wong and Jockey J Chuah were questioned regarding the performance of
HERE COMES THUNDER, a last start winner. Trainer KF Wong stated that he
instructed Jockey J Chuah to ride a forward race. Jockey J Chuah confirmed the
instructions and stated that after getting a good jump, HERE COMES THUNDER raced
in 2nd position and travelled well throughout the race but compounded over the final
200M. Jockey J Chuah stated that he took HERE COMES THUNDER wide for better
going but the gelding failed to run on. Apart from that, neither Trainer KF Wong nor
Jockey J Chuah could offer any explanation as to the geldings poor performance today.
Trainer KF Wong was informed that should he be aware of anything amiss that could
have affected the performance of HERE COMES THUNDER today, he is to inform the
