Recap by phillip woo

Benefactor hit the gates running to lead after 100m, straightened nearly two lengths on top and kept finding to score a handy win at odds for his new trainer Peter Ng. Favourite Snitzel Kid travelled worse than midfield and one off the fence, hit the straight four deep and ran on well to be a clear second. He'll be winning soon. Diamond Rainbow was prominently ridden fourth along the fence, eased three deep at the 250m and stayed on nicely for third. Caga Spirit stalked the leader one off the fence, straightened four deep and kept on one-paced over the final 150m. Amazing Sky was settled behind midfield and two deep, rounded the final bend six wide and made some ground late without threatening, despite tending to lay out. Owain bided his time third from the rear and along the inside, made some ground before flattening out over the final 100m. Joyful Joyful was settled midfield and two deep, swung the final bend with two wider out and never did really get going with Amazing Sky tending to pester him in the straight run. Specked late, Beautiful Dreamer was always off the track in midfield and was never a danger in the stretch drive. Dragonfield made his run third from the rear, swung the final bend widest out and never was a danger.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (034) - PINE HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200 Meters J Lloyd (YOUNG HAPPY) was fined $2,000 for initially weighing out without a girth and surcingle.

OWAIN and DRAGONFIELD were slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, YOUNG HAPPY was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the first turn near the 1000 Metres, BEAUTIFUL DREAMER was steadied and shifted out away from the heels of CAGA SPIRIT which got its head on the side and shifted out slightly.

After this, CAGA SPIRIT continued to lay out until after entering the Back Straight.

O Doleuze (BEAR ELITE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 1000 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of JOYFUL JOYFUL, causing that horse to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled and be checked.

SNITZEL KID, which was following, was checked to avoid the heels of JOYFUL JOYFUL, resulting in OWAIN and YOUNG HAPPY being hampered and DRAGONFIELD shifting out abruptly, resulting in BRILLIANT ONE being taken wider.

After this, BRILLIANT ONE travelled wide and without cover until approaching the 600 Metres.

O Doleuze was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Friday, 7 October 2011 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

This suspension shall commence on Thursday, 29 September 2011 on which day O Doleuze was due to resume race riding from a suspension incurred at the Sha Tin racemeeting last Sunday.

Near the 700 Metres, BEAUTIFUL DREAMER was left racing wide and without cover.

Making the turn after the 600 Metres, DRAGONFIELD got its head on the side and hung out.

Passing the 500 Metres, JOYFUL JOYFUL was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BEAR ELITE.

After the 300 Metres, AMAZING SKY shifted out and bumped JOYFUL JOYFUL.

Approaching the 200 Metres, SNITZEL KID and BEAR ELITE bumped, resulting in BEAR ELITE shifting out and inconveniencing AMAZING SKY.

Y T Cheng (CAGA SPIRIT), 4th placegetter, was reprimanded and reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out right to the end of the race where circumstances permit.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that OWAIN had bled from both nostrils.

A veterinary inspection of DRAGONFIELD and BEAUTIFUL DREAMER after the race did not show any significant findings.

BENEFACTOR and SNITZEL KID were sent for sampling.
