RACE 8 (R731) CLASS 3 1100M (SHORT COURSE A)
The start of this race was delayed as RIGHTEO had to be checked behind the barriers at
the request of Jockey J Shankar who reported that his horse was not striding out freely. The
gelding was examined by the Club Veterinary Surgeon and passed fit to take its place in
Approaching the 1000M, GOOD MUMMY (J De Souza) had to be checked when racing
between PITSTOP (App AM Aizat), MESHMAKER (App A Thamil) which shifted
inwards, and NATURE SPIRIT (Y Aify) and as a result lost its position. The Stewards
adjourned an inquiry into this incident as App A Thamil had left the course.
GOOD MUMMY and MESHMAKER both raced wide throughout the event.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey SS Vanan, the rider of TIDAL WAVE, pleaded
guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that:
1. Shortly after the start, he allowed his horse to shift in when insufficiently 2
lengths clear of PITSTOP causing that horse to be checked and lose its rightful
2. Approaching the 250M mark, he shifted his mounts outwards when
insufficiently clear of PITSTOP causing that horse to be checked and again lose
its rightful position.
In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey SS Vanans guilty
plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. He was
suspended from riding in races for a period of five (5) Malaysian race days with effect
from 6 June 2016 and to expire on 25 June 2016, both dates inclusive. He was advised of
his Right of Appeal (5:50pm).
The Stewards adjourned an inquiry into the tactics that were adopted on MESHMAKER
(App A Thamil) at a date to be fixed. The Stewards also adjourned an inquiry into the
reasons why App A Thamil left the course after being instructed not to do so.
