Talented apprentice Roger K. H. Yu will appear before the Licensing Committee next month and is likely to emerge with a final warning about his conduct and his future ringing in his ears. Yu lost a further two pounds of his claim when winning on Perfect Victory at Sha Tin on Saturday, but will soon lose his job if he does not mend his ways. That was the no-nonsense warning from director of racing Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges, as the Jockey Club announced details of overseas assignments for apprentices this summer. Yu will remain in Hong Kong and be enrolled in a tough Outward Bound stint. Said Engelbrecht-Bresges: 'It is entirely up to him. Hong Kong racing can get by without Roger Yu and that is something he had better learn very quickly. 'His conduct has been unacceptable, but there is still a chance for him. But this will be very much the last chance. He has been referred to the Licensing Committee. 'However, we have talked to the trainer with whom he has been assigned and are arranging for him to go on a special Outward Bound course. His trainer, Ricky Yiu, went on a similar course years ago and believed it helped to change his life.' The Outward Bound courses stress leadership and camaraderie and there are separate courses on land and sea in Hong Kong. Due to the lateness of the decision to enrol Yu, the Jockey Club is now attempting to get him a place on one or the other. Yu's latest brush with the stewards came when he attempted to use his elbow on another apprentice to gain room during a race on Saturday. He may well have been fortunate to escape with a three-meeting ban. Chief stipendiary steward Clinton P. Pitts Jnr said yesterday: 'He admitted it immediately and did not attempt to defend himself or get out of it. That had a bearing on the decision of the panel.' Yu will have spent 18 days on the sidelines this season when the latest ban is completed and Engelbrecht-Bresges said: 'That, too, is unacceptable. You cannot have apprentices spending almost a third of the season suspended.' The top racing official was clearly upset about the latest Yu incident. 'What would have happened if he had connected with his elbow and knocked the other boy out of the saddle and killed him? Then it would have been a matter for the police. 'There is simply no room for this type of behaviour on any racecourse.' Visa restrictions and lack of guaranteed rides mean there will be no apprentices going to England this summer. Rides are guaranteed in Germany and Norway, which appears for the first time, while trainer Peter Hayes, elder brother of Sha Tin-based David, will look after two Hong Kong claimers in Australia during the summer. The Jockey Club has made arrangements for apprentices to go to the following countries and trainers: United States - Bill C. M. Ho (P. G. Johnson), Patrick P. H. Tse (Leo O'Brien), Eric K. W. Lee (Bill Mott), Vincent S. K. Sit (Allen Jerkins); Germany - Martin C. K. Tsang (Erica Mader), Alex K. S. Yu (Mario Hofer); Norway - Henry K. C. Tsang and John C. W. Mok (Wido Neuroth); Australia - Howard Y. T. Cheng and Way M. W. Leung (Peter Hayes); New Zealand - Carol W. S. Yu and Philip C. T. Cheng (Colin Jillings).
