RACE 1 (R357) CLASS 5 1200M
Emergency acceptor, AMPED was withdrawn due to a capacity field.
At 1.22 pm, the Stewards permitted Jockey S Salee to replace Jockey SS Vanan on
LEES MELODY as the latter had not arrived on course. Jockey SS Vanan, when
subsequently questioned, advised the Stewards that he had left Ipoh with ample time to
get to Penang today. However, there was an accident and major traffic jam which held
him up. The Stewards noted his explanation.
THE PROFESSIONAL (R Woodworth) was checked by the Veterinary Surgeon prior to
the start and passed fit to race.
BULL AND BEAR (App CK Khaw) was restless in the barrier, hesitated at the start and
was slow to begin.
LUCK TREASURE (App KC Wong) stumbled at the start.
At the start, MY TOUCH (J Shankar) was inconvenienced when tightened between
LIGHTNING ROD (App S Saddam) which jumped awkwardly outwards and GREEN
TRACER (HK Cheng) which jumped awkwardly and laid inwards.
GREEN TRACER was pulling and was difficult to settle in the back straight.
LUCKY MONEY (App CT Lee) jumped awkwardly and shortly after the start, steadied
when tightened between THE PROFESSIONAL and LEES MELODY (S Salee) which
HIGH PEAK (S Anandan) was caught four wide on the turn at the 700M.
Shortly after entering the home straight, LEES MELODY was momentarily held up on
the heels of DRAGON WALK (J Low) which laid outwards.
At about the 150M, LAZAROO (S Ruzaini) switched outwards for a clear run. At about
the same stage of the race, THE PROFESSIONAL checked on the inside of GREEN
TRACER which rolled inwards when stopping under pressure.
Approaching the 100M mark, LUCKY MONEY was bumped on the inside of BLACK
AHEAD (C Goon) which laid inwards away from the whip. Jockey C Goon was shown
the video replay and warned to make more attempt to keep his horses on a straight course
Approaching the finishing post, ANAK PENANG (L Sofhan) steadied outwards away
from DRAGON WALK which rolled outwards under pressure.
Post-race veterinary examinations of THE PROFESSIONAL and BULL AND BEAR
revealed no obvious abnormality. THE PROFESSIONAL was Impounded for further
veterinary and analytical examination.
