Recap by phillip woo

Regency Luck was confidently ridden on the speed to the outside of the leader Bet On Me, worked to the front at the 300m, established nearly two lengths at the 200m and just held off the late surge of Keen Wongchoy for the win. He has improved leaps-and-bounds after an opening day move to blinkers. Keen Wongchoy travelled third from the rear, straightened four deep and shifted out abruptly under pressure over the final 50m, which may have cost him the race. He's got temperamental issues, but ability as well. Intellectualstride settled midfield on the fence, straightened three deep and eventually got going over the final 100m to place at a price. Specked late, Surfer Boy enjoyed the box-seat run, shifted out abruptly onto Red Lucky Star at the 300m, worked to second at the 150m and was swamped final 50m. He will be a hard to beat on his preferred Happy Valley course. Red Lucky Star settled one-out, one-back, lost momentum after copping a sharp bump at the 300m, got balanced, but only kept on evenly over the last 100m. Plunged late to start favourite, Bet On Me was giving ground over the final 200m.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (044) - HEREFORD HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200 Meters From a wide barrier, ELEGANCE KLAMMER was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

When being taken back from a wide barrier in the early stages, BONDI LAD was shifted in and bumped SMART TOUCH, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, despite being ridden along vigorously in the early stages, MY WHISKY failed to muster speed and then throughout the race travelled wide and without cover.

When being steadied making the first turn near the 850 Metres, EXCEPTIONAL ART got its head up on a number of occasions and proved difficult to settle.

Near the 700 Metres, BILLION GAINS got its head on the side and became awkwardly placed close to the heels of INTELLECTUALSTRIDE.

After the 400 Metres, RED LUCKY STAR became unbalanced after being bumped by SURFER BOY (C W Wong) which shifted out to obtain clear running.

C W Wong was severely reprimanded and advised to ensure that he exercises due care when shifting ground in future.

Also passing the 400 Metres, MY WHISKY was bumped by SMART TOUCH which shifted to the outside of ELITE FORTUNE into clear running.

EXCEPTIONAL ART and ELEGANCE KLAMMER, which were following, were steadied in consequence.

Over the concluding stages, RED LUCKY STAR was taken wider by SURFER BOY which shifted out under pressure.

C W Wong was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he makes every effort to keep his mounts on a straight course in future.

Passing the 50 Metres, when being ridden out, KEEN WONGCHOY shifted out abruptly towards the outside fence.

As this was the second occasion on which KEEN WONGCHOY had shifted ground abruptly over the concluding stages of a race, the Stewards ruled that prior to being permitted to race again, KEEN WONGCHOY will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

Throughout the race, ELITE FORTUNE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SMART TOUCH had lost its left front plate.

REGENCY LUCK and KEEN WONGCHOY were sent for sampling.
