Eric Saint-Martin will be nursing a sprained knee ligament and a broken finger today but counting himself a lucky man following a spectacular tumble from Honest Treasure after passing the post a winner yesterday. The Tony Cruz-trained Honest Treasure scraped home under Saint-Martin a narrow winner despite wanting to lay out over the final stages and that's where Saint-Martin ran into trouble. 'I learned to ride the American style and you don't pull horses back into line, you shift all your weight to the side opposite where they are shifting,' the Frenchman, on crutches after the final event, explained. 'Ninety nine per cent of horses will straighten up, but this one didn't - he kept going out and after the line I had no horse left under me.' Saint-Martin crashed to the track with all the field behind him and his helmet appeared to take a hoof but the jockey emerged remarkably well from what could have been a shocking incident. 'I have a sprained ligament in my right knee and the little finger on my left hand is broken but I feel OK for now,' Saint-Martin said, though he acknowledged he might pull up with a few bumps and bruises this morning. The fall spoiled an otherwise successful day for Saint-Martin, who had also won for David Hall on Jade Dancer earlier, but his departure for hospital left the ride on Circular Machine vacant and Gerald Mosse took over the winning mount in the eighth. Saint-Martin's engagement on Jade Dancer was his first win for the yard and a training triumph for Hall as the gelding had not raced since June and was returning after a medial splint fracture in December. 'I deliberately didn't trial him because he's always trialled so well in the past and probably not lived up to it on race day at times,' Hall said. 'I thought he was the kind of horse who might trial like a bomb and leave it at the trials so I'd prefer him to bring his good fresh effort to the races instead and he has. 'He's a funny horse - the more you do with him, the tougher it is to get the best out of him - but he had a nice riverside gallop, another down the back straight and we know he loves this surface.' Mosse had an armchair ride as he took over on Circular Machine for Danny Shum Chap-shing in the Lamma Island Handicap (1,400m) as the lightly raced four-year-old made a happy return to Sha Tin. Circular Machine had campaigned with success at Happy Valley over 1,650m until his last two runs there were disappointing but Shum said the gelding had developed a mental problem with the track. 'He capped his elbow there and because he's hurt himself at Happy Valley, I think he associates the place with that incident now and doesn't enjoy it,' Shum explained. 'So he just wasn't racing well there. Back to Sha Tin and back to 1,400m today in blinkers brought him back to form and he had the perfect run from barrier one.'
