RACE 2 (R080) CLASS 5 1400M (SHORT COURSE B)
The Stewards questioned Jockey C Goon and Trainer R Lines as to the tactics that will be
adopted on OCEAN WAVE today. Jockey C Goon informed the Stewards that he was to get a
good jump and attempted to gain a midfield position where the horse would be comfortable
and do his best in the home straight.
Trainer R Lines also added that the gelding had worked extremely well throughout the week
and looked fitter for the run as it is the geldings second start for his stable and believed that
the 1400M would be better suited to the gelding than its previous 1200M race start. The
Stewards noted their comments for future reference.
DRAGON KNIGHT (App KC Tham) was slow to begin.
Shortly after the start, BLACK TRISTAR (J Low) had a tendency to over-race and as a result,
RED EASTERN (H Bukhari) was momentarily inconvenienced.
Shortly after the start, CONTENTED (App S Shafrizal) rolled in, inconveniencing NO
NONSENCE (SS Vanan) which had to be checked by its rider.
OCEAN WAVE (C Goon) had a tendency to over-race in the early stages, and had to be
continuously checked off the heels of runners in front and in doing so, shifted out and
inconvenienced KING OF THE CREEK (R Woodworth) and VAGABOND (App S Zulfikri).
HAHA BABE (S Ruzaini) had a tendency to over-race in the early and middle stages, got its
head up and raced ungenerously.
Approaching the 100M, CONTENTED (App S Shafrizal) shifted in and as a result, RED
EASTERN had to be eased by its rider. As a result of this incident, NO NONSENSE had to
shift out to gain clear running. App S Shafrizal was shown the official patrol film of the
incident and reminded of his obligation to exercise greater care when shifting ground under
similar circumstances in future.
KING OF THE CREEK and VAGABOND were both caught racing wide throughout the
Jockey S Ruzaini, the rider of HAHA BABE, was fined RM500/- under MRA Rule 41(6)(c)(i)
