RUMPELSTILTSKIN which was up 27kgs in body weight since its last run, was
checked by the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and was passed fit to start.
THONGS JIAQING (J Chuah) jumped away awkwardly and brushed the outside of the
barrier and was slow into stride.
GREEN TRACER (HK Cheng) dipped on jumping away.
LEES MELODY (S Thai Yang) jumped away awkwardly.
Racing to the 800M, EASY AHEAD (App KC Wong) had to be steadied and shifted
outwards when ZAC GALLANT (J Low) rolled out.
GREEN TRACER over-raced in the early and middle stages of the race and then
continued to race ungenerously until entering the straight.
App CT Lee, the rider of MONEY NOT ENOUGH was fined RM500/- for negligence
under MRA Rule 152(5)(a) in that he dropped his whip passing the 300M.
Approaching the winning post, MONEY NOT ENOUGH shied away from the shadow of
the winning post, unbalancing App CT Lee momentarily.
A post-race veterinary examination of GREEN TRACER revealed that the gelding had
returned broken-winded and as such, will be required to pass a test (1000M/vet) before
being declared to race again.
Post-race veterinary examinations of EASY AHEAD, ZAC GALLANT and HAPPY
AMIGO (J De Souza) revealed no obvious abnormality.
The Stewards questioned Trainer Bonny Ng, the trainer of GREEN TRACER and he
stated that todays instruction was to hold the gelding up, so that it would finish the race
off, as it had not been doing so when it had led. The Stewards noted his explanations and
will question Jockey HK Cheng who had left the course, at a date to be fixed.
