After taking evidence from Trainer PS Kumaran, the Stewards adjourned an inquiry into the
riding of SACRED CITY by Jockey M Ganeesh, at a date to be fixed as the latter had left the
The Stewards questioned Trainer P Fell and App S Shafrizal into the reasons why 5-year old
gelding, GAZOO stood in the barrier and was very slow to begin as it was one of the favourite
runners in the event. App S Shafrizal stated that he was instructed to encourage the horse to
jump keenly as in the opinion of the Trainer, he was slow to jump from the barriers in his last
start. Trainer P Fell stated that the gelding came from Singapore and in his opinion, it had
previously offended by failing to jump from the barriers and this was the reason why he
instructed App S Shafrizal to wake the horse up entering and whilst inside the barrier.
The Stewards, after viewing the official patrol film in particular the barrier cam, was satisfied
that it was all horse and not the fault of the rider. The Stewards noted their comments for

after passing the bleeders test.
The Stewards questioned Jockey J Shankar, the rider of SWEET LODGE, into the reasons
why SUPER GOOD (Lou Ho) had to be checked at approximately the 300M mark. After
taking evidence from Jockey J Shankar, the Stewards, acting on their own observations, gave
him a benefit of the doubt that whilst riding his horse out with the whip in the right hand, he
allowed his horse to shift in which placed SUPER GOOD in restricted racing room resulting
in that horse having to be checked by its rider.
The Stewards took into consideration the heavy rain and poor visibility on this occasion,
however, warned Jockey J Shankar in the strongest term that he should ensure that as soon as
this horse started to shift ground, he must stop and straighten as this was not the case on this
