RACE 8 [TF0242]
CLASS 5 1200M
Prior to the start, both REWARDING SMILE (O Placais) and VRAAD (R Shafiq)
were examined by the Veterinary Surgeon and were passed fit to race.
PRETTY ELUSIVE (M Nunes) jumped awkwardly outwards and bumped
VRAAD began awkwardly.
Shortly after the start, SUPERTEN (N Juglall) had to be steadied to avoid the
heels of BELIEVE IT OR NOT (E Aslam), which shifted inwards.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT raced keenly in the early stages.
Approaching the 600m, SILVER POWER had to be eased off the heels of HELEN
(App Y Salim).
SUPERTEN raced wide throughout.
MAREA NEGRO (D David) laid outwards over the final 100m and in so doing
carried HELEN and SILVER POWER (App T See) wider on the track.
Jockey Placais, when questioned regarding the run of REWARDING SMILE,
stated that that the gelding travelled well until approaching the 700m when
asked to improve, failed to respond to his riding and was under pressure for
the remainder of the race. His explanation was noted. A subsequent
veterinary examination was requested on REWARDING SMILE which
revealed that the gelding returned not striding out freely.
Jockey Shafiq, when questioned regarding the run of VRAAD, stated that he
felt the gelding stumble near the 600m and thereafter, he became concerned
with the action of VRAAD as the gelding was not striding out freely. He added
that for this reason, he did not place undue pressure on VRAAD for the
remainder of the race. His explanation was noted. A subsequent veterinary
examination was requested on VRAAD which revealed that the gelding
returned lame off-fore. VRAAD will be required to pass a 1000m gallop trial
and veterinary examination prior to being declared to race again.
An Inquiry into Jockey R Shafiq, the rider of VRAAD weighing in excess of
0.5kg less than the allocated weight, will be held at a date to be fix.
