RACE 2 (R808) CLASS 5 1200M (SHORT COURSE A)
The start of this race was delayed when GOOD VIBRATIONS (J De Souza) proved
difficult to be loaded into the barrier. The gelding will be required to pass a 1000M/vet
(from the starting stall) test before being declared to race again.
ENCOSTA ZONE (F Yap) stood flat-footed and missed the start by a considerable margin.
The Stewards questioned Dr Silamban Subbarao, the Chief Starter, regarding ENCOSTA
ZONE being slow at the start when a special request for the horse has been made. Dr
Silamban explained that the Barrier Handlers were under pressure with GOOD
VIBRATIONS and he failed to adhere to the request.
After considering all the evidence, the Stewards informed Trainer T Jackman that
ENCOSTA ZONE will be required to pass a 1000M/vet (from the starting stall) test before
being declared to race again. The Starter was reminded of his obligations.
MARINI WALTZ (App AM Aizat) jumped awkwardly resulting in the rider becoming
GOOD VIBRATIONS trailed the field throughout the event.
Over the final stages of the event, JP REGIS (J Shankar) shifted out under pressure
resulting in MARINI WALTZ being inconvenienced.
The Stewards questioned Jockey J Shankar into the riding tactics that were adopted on JP
REGIS in particular why he failed to ride to instructions which were to gain a midfield
position and why he sat outside the leader, GOOD VIBRATIONS during a quick tempo of
this event when in the opinion of the Stewards, by doing so, it may have been detrimental
to his horses chances.
Jockey J Shankar explained that shortly after the start, he attempted to restrain the gelding
in an endeavour to do this, however, the gelding had a tendency to over-race and when
being restrained, got its head up on numerous occasions and raced fiercely.
After viewing the official patrol films of this event and considering the evidence tendered,
the Stewards acting on their own observations, confirmed Jockey J Shankars explanation,
noted his comments for future reference and took no action.
