FOX TREASURE (J Low) was slow to begin.
THUNDER KING (J Shankar) jumped awkwardly and shortly after the start, was
inconvenienced between SUPER MIX (App SU Lim) and AL AWAATEF (R Olechea) and
In the early stages of the event, FOX TREASURE (J Low) had a tendency to over-race and
got its head up.
Approaching the 600M, NEW CLASSMATE (C Goon) shifted in closer to the rail and as a
result, both AL AWAATEF and JAI HO (M Ganeesh) had to be eased by their riders. Jockey
C Goon 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 or action will
be taken against his license.
The Stewards questioned App SU Lim and Trainer WC Lim as to the racing tactics that were
adopted on SUPER MIX in todays event. The Stewards were concerned into why App SU
Lim led from a wide barrier which was contrary to his Trainers Instruction Form which was
to be handy to midfield.
Trainer WC Lim explained that SUPER MIX had a tendency to over-race in its races and he
was trying to endeavour to get a midfield sit if possible in order to try and settle the mare in its
App SU Lim stated that after jumping well, SUPER MIX over-raced and he was unable to
settle the mare, so he elected to go forward rather than sit wide and allowed her to race where
she was comfortable. He further stated that the mare may be better suited in 1000M races at
this stage of preparation. The Stewards noted their comments for future reference. A post-race
veterinary examination of SUPER MIX revealed no significant finding.
The Stewards took evidence from Trainer M Sukri and Jockey S Ruzaini into the racing tactics
that were adopted on KIM SALUTE in todays event.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, after viewing the official patrol films of this event and
considering the evidence tendered, Jockey S Ruzaini, the rider of KIM SALUTE, pleaded
guilty to a charge under MRA Rule 44(10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the
Stewards. The particulars of the charge were that he did not give sufficient rein when jumping
out of the barrier and he settled at the rear of the field. The Stewards believed that in the home
straight, he failed to show sufficient vigour in particular over the final 300M of the event.
In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey S Ruzainis guilty plea,
mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. He was suspended
from riding in races for a period of one (1) month with effect from 14 February 2016 and to
expire on 13 March 2016, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal
