马来西亚 （雪兰莪） - 07/01/2017
场地：良好 夺标时速： 1:10.90
RACE 6 (R049) CLASS 4 1200M (SHORT COURSE B)
Trainer A Scott was fined RM100/- under MRA Rule 65(5)(c) for failing to produce the
declared colours on GREENSTONE (Y Aify).
The Stewards questioned Jockey HS Gill into the tactics that were adopted into his riding
of KISS ME to the barriers in particular why he strongly galloped to the barriers. He
reported that the horse has always been scratchy in its action and requires a good fast
warm-up prior to its races and he further explained that in its previous race starts, he has
done the same and the gelding has performed creditably. The Stewards, after reviewing its
previous race starts, was satisfied and noted his comments for future reference.
Upon jumping, WONDERFUL SURPRISE (SS Vanan) jumped outwards and DGREAT
EMINENCE (J Low) jumped inwards resulting in CHINO DIABLO (App SU Lim) being
placed in restricted racing room.
Approaching the 150M, DANCING TSURU (J De Souza) had a tendency to lay inwards
resulting in the rider having to stop and straighten on several occasions.
Approaching the 100M, WONDERFUL SURPRISE had to shift out over the heels of
LONESOME ME (App CK Khaw) in order to gain clear running.
The Stewards questioned Jockey Y Aify into the tactics that were adopted on
GREENSTONE in particular in the front straight, why he failed to show sufficient vigour
as required by the Stewards. Jockey Y Aify reported that on entering the front straight, the
gelding had a tendency to lay inwards and as a result, he had to shift his whip from his
right hand to his left hand in order to stop the gelding from hanging inwards and this
placed him at a disadvantage as it was not his natural strong arm. He further explained that
over the final 200M, the gelding continued to lay inwards and for this reason, he was
unable to use the whip in the normal manner and the gelding is better suited to a longer
distance. The Stewards advised him that they were not fully satisfied, however, gave him the
benefit of the doubt on this occasion. His comments were noted for future reference.
