RACE 2 (R506) Class 5 1300m BICYCLE KID HANDICAP
TAVAN BOGD, a course scratching due to a swollen near fore cannon (cellulitis), will
be required to pass a veterinary examination before being declared to race again.
PIUS TOUCH, which was down 20kgs in body weight since its last run, was checked by
the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and was passed fit to start.
App R Fakruddin and his Master, Trainer BT Lim, were warned for accepting rides when
App R Fakruddin was still under suspension. (LEES SURPRISE Race 2; and LEES
MELODY Race 3).
Acting on a report from the Starter that PIUS TOUCH (App R Narendran) was difficult
to be boxed and caused some delay to the start, PIUS TOUCH will be required to pass
one (1) starting stall test before being declared to race again.
At the start, MONEY NOT ENOUGH (App M Hanif) jumped awkwardly outwards and
was a little slow to begin and shortly after the start, was further inconvenienced and lost
ground when tightened on the inside of BLAZING STEED (App KL Lee) which shifted
inwards. App KL Lee was subsequently shown the video and warned to ensure that he
gives sufficient room when shifting ground in future.
SACRED ACHIEVER (S Salee) was slow into stride after the start.
THE TIGER (M Yusri) laid inwards in the back straight.
Rounding the turn at about the 800M, HALO HELLO (App M Kounder) steadied on the
inside of LAZAROO (App CT Lee) which rolled inwards slightly.
In the home straight, CIZEN BROTHER (M Razali) raced wide on the outside of HANG
TUAH (App M Yunes) which drifted outwards.
Post-race veterinary examinations of MONEY NOT ENOUGH and CIZEN BROTHER
revealed no obvious abnormality. Both geldings were impounded for further veterinary
and analytical examination.
App R Narendran and Trainer Dr SH Tan were questioned regarding App R Narendrans
ride on PIUS TOUCH in the concluding stages of the race. After considering the
evidence and reviewing the video replays, the Stewards took into account that App R
Narendran had only just started race riding but warned App R Narendran that his lack of
vigour and or whip use would not be acceptable in future.
