RACE 1 (R1372) CLASS 5 1200M (SHORT COURSE A)
Acting on veterinary advice that RUBICON (App R Fakruddin) had kicked out at the
barriers and sustained a cut on the near hind leg, the gelding was withdrawn by order of the
Stewards at 1:10pm. The gelding will be required to undergo a veterinary examination
before being declared to race again.
Upon jumping, JUST VITAL (C Goon) was inconvenienced when BLACK COFFEE (J
De Souza) jumped inwards and PARIS LORD (App S Uzair) jumped outwards.
Approaching the 200M, MARCO POLO (App AK Lim) shifted in abruptly resulting in the
rider having to stop and straighten.
The Stewards adjourned an inquiry into the tactics that were adopted on JUST VITAL (C
Goon) at a date to be fixed as Jockey C Goon had left the course.
The Stewards questioned App AK Lim, the rider of MARCO POLO, in the presence of his
Master, Trainer WC Lim, App S Zulfikri, the rider of NO MONEY NO TALK, App S
Uzair, the rider of PARIS LORD, and Jockey HS Gill, the rider of LITTLE LION into an
incident approaching the 1100M.
At the conclusion of an inquiry, App AK Lim, the rider of MARCO POLO, in the presence
of his Master, Trainer WC Lim, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA
Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that approaching the 1100M in this race, he shifted in when
insufficiently clear of NO MONEY NO TALK (App S Zulfikri) which was taken in onto
PARIS LORD (App S Uzair) resulting in PARIS LORD having to shift in closer to the rail
and as a consequence, LITTLE LION (HS Gill) which was racing on the rail, was placed in
restricted racing room and had to be severely checked by its rider, and lost its racing
position. In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration App AK Lims 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 App AK
Lims suspension. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of four (4)
Malaysian race days with effect from 6 November 2016 and to expire on 26 November
2016, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (3:05pm).
