RACE 1 (R1383) CLASS 5 1400M (Short Course B)
MYSTIC WARRIOR (H Bukhari) jumped with its head in the air and was slow to begin.
GOLD STAR PRINCESS (App SU Lim) reared upon jumping and was slow to begin.
In the early stages, AMONGST THE STARS (App P Deneskumar) had a tendency to over-
race and as a result, clipped the heels of ALACARTE (App KP Lim) and blundered for a short
SUPER WINE (J Low) raced wide throughout the event.
The Stewards questioned Trainer SB Tan and App KC Wong as to the disappointing
performance of TARAMIS which was supported in todays race. App KC Wong explained
that he was attempting to ride to midfield position and this was confirmed by the Stewards
from the Trainers Instruction Form, however, had no early pace and was caught racing 3-wide
throughout the entire event. He stated that he placed the gelding under pressure at the 800M
but it failed to respond to his riding, and was one-paced.
Trainer SB Tan explained that TARAMIS had worked extremely throughout the week and
expected a forward showing. He also stated that he could not offer any explanation into the
disappointing performance of TARAMIS. Their explanations were noted for future reference.
A post-race veterinary examination of TARAMIS revealed that it was lame off hind and had
sustained a cut to the near hind coronet. The gelding will be required to pass a 1000M/vet test
before being declared to race again.

performance of SUPER WINE in todays race. Jockey J Low explained that after jumping
extremely well from Barrier 12, he was happy to try to gain a forward position, however, was
caught racing 5-wide throughout and was unable to get closer to the rail to try and get cover.
He was disappointed with the performance of the horse. He stated that he placed the gelding
under pressure from the 600M but it failed to respond to his riding. The Stewards informed
Jockey J Low in the strongest term that they would expect a jockey of his caliber to have more
initiative than what he had done on this occasion.
Trainer D Murphy agreed with the jockeys explanation and stated that in hindsight, it may
have been better off to restrain and settle the horse and gain a position closer to the rails. Their
explanations were noted for future reference. A post-race veterinary examination of SUPER
WINE revealed no significant finding. SUPER WINE which was beaten 25 lengths, will be
required to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again for having a poor
