RACE 2 [TF0090]
OPEN MAIDEN SC (E) 1600M
YU LONG EMPEROR (R Woodworth), which was slow to begin, was slightly
inconvenienced when SUPER BUFFALO (V Duric) jumped awkwardly inwards.
Approaching the 1400m, SUPER BUFFALO eased off the heels of MUSCULAR
CAPTAIN (O Placais), which shifted inwards and away from EL DON (J
Powell). Shortly after, MUSCULAR CAPTAIN rolled outwards making contact
with EL DON.
Near the 1100m, ECLAIR SHADOW (I Azhar) checked when racing to the
inside of SUPER BUFFALO, which shifted inwards and away from EL DON.
MUSCULAR CAPTAIN laid outwards making the turn near the 800m.
HIDDEN PROMISE (App R Zawari) raced wide throughout.
SPUR ME ON (G Mosse) raced wide from the 700m.
ECLAIR SHADOW, which was held up and unable to improve between the
600m and the 500m, had to be eased approaching the 400m when held up
on the heels of DESTINY KNIGHT (App I Amirul).
Approaching the 500m, START ME UP (App WS Chan) checked off the heels
of YU LONG EMPEROR, which shifted outwards. At a subsequent Inquiry,
Jockey Woodworth pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA
Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that approaching the 500m, he allowed his mount to shift
outwards, when insufficiently clear, thereby resulting in START ME UP having
to be checked. When deciding on penalty, the Stewards took into account
his record, guilty plea, the degree of interference and carelessness and
submissions from Jockey Woodworth that he has been engaged to ride at the
Singapore Race Meeting on Friday, 20 January 2017. The Stewards
determined to suspend his licence to ride in races and acting under MRA Rule
48(5), the commencement of the suspension was deferred to begin on
Saturday, 21 January 2017 until Sunday, 22 January 2017 both dates
inclusive (two Race Days). He was advised of his Right of Appeal.
Passing the 100m, ECLAIR SHADOW was held up for clear running when
HIDDEN PROMISE shifted inwards under pressure.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on ECLAIR SHADOW
which revealed that the horse returned with a cut on its off-fore leg.
A subsequent veterinary examination was requested on SUPER BUFFALO
which revealed no apparent abnormality.
