striding out freely. A post-race veterinary examination revealed no obvious abnormality.
DIAMOND FLAME was impounded for further veterinary and analytical examination.
Trainer S Hamilton, when questioned regarding the apparent poor performance of
DIAMOND FLAME, advised the Stewards that DIAMOND FLAME was a small framed
entire and it would appear that this horse was unable to take two hard runs in succession
on a Heavy track. She also reported that Jockey S Salee had reported that DIAMOND
FLAME was not striding out freely. The video replays confirmed that Jockey S Salee
attempted to improve his position on the home turn with the whip and the horse showed
no response. Trainer S Hamiltons attention was drawn to the rules regarding In-and-
Out running (MRA Rule 117(3)). Should DIAMOND FLAME prove to be inconsistent
or run a poor race in the future, it may be suspended from racing.
App CT Lee, the rider of KEY LARGOLD, in the presence of his Master, Trainer HS
Lim, was questioned regarding the start. App CT Lee advised the Stewards that KEY
LARGOLD sat back and was slow to begin. After reviewing the video replays, the
Stewards advised App CT Lee that they are not entirely happy with his explanation and
he was warned that in future, he would be expected to ensure that he gives sufficient rein
to all his runners, failing which action may be taken.
