RACE 7 (R477) CLASS 4 1400M (LONG COURSE A)
COCONUT (App KC Wong) was slow to begin.
DARTAGNAN (J De Souza) jumped awkwardly.
JUST VITAL (App AM Aizat) was caught racing wide throughout the race.
KEEPITCONFIDENTIAL (App S Zulfikri) was caught racing wide in the early stages before
progressing forward and gaining a position outside the leader at the 900M.
DIRAC (LL Tai) laid in under pressure from the 300M.
Leaving the 200M, DANCING TSURU (S Ruzaini) had to be eased of the inside of
KEEPITCONFIDENTIAL to gain a clear run when it began to tire.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey J Shankar, the rider of IMMORTALITY, pleaded
guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that whilst riding
IMMORTALITY approaching the 1000M mark in this race, he allowed his horse to shift in
when insufficiently clear of CUTTING TORCH (Y Aify) resulting in SATURDAYS
DELIGHT (SS Vanan) which was racing inside CUTTING TORCH to be severely checked
and lose his position.
In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey J Shankars guilty plea,
mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. Acting on the
provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of Jockey J
Shankars suspension. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of two (2)
Malaysian race days with effect from 18 April 2016 and to expire on 24 April 2016, both dates
inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (4:55pm).
