Recap by phillip woo

Hawthorne led with Dane Patrol pestering him to his outside, shot a length clear upon straightening under a hustling ride and gamely repelled a challenge from Good Boy Boy at the 150m for the win with roll-up support. Good Boy Boy enjoyed a dream run behind the speed, loomed up a confident win chance three deep at the 200m and couldn't run down Hawthorne carrying a refrigerator weight. Green Zone bided his time behind midfield and just off the rails, peeled into the clear with one wider out upon straightening and finished off nicely to run down Danewin Winning for third, though a distant one. Danewin Winning slotted fifth and one off the fence from a wide gate, rounded the final bend six wide and ran on all right, but couldn't hold third late. Specked late, Prosperous was taken back to last from the widest gate, straightened five deep and was getting going late without threatening. Lucky Turbo travelled better than midfield and on the rails, hit the straight four deep and couldn't keep up the gallop over the last 150m in a disappointing effort. Best-backed late, Free And Easy was checked back to a position worse than midfield and three deep to the outside of Green Zone at the 600m, pushed widest out upon straightening and held his ground without quickening.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (293) - CHATER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000 Meters GREEN ZONE and YOUNG TURBO began awkwardly.

From wide barriers, JOYFUL LUCK and PROSPEROUS were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

Making the turn after the 800 Metres, DANE PATROL got its head on the side and hung out.

DANE PATROL continued to hang out rounding the Home Turn which resulted in it travelling wide and without cover throughout.

C W Wong (HAWTHORNE) was severely reprimanded for permitting his mount to shift in near the 750 Metres when not sufficiently clear of GOOD BOY BOY, causing that horse to be awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAWTHORNE and to be steadied.

G Mosse (DANEWIN WINNING) was found guilty of a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that after the 600 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of FREE AND EASY, causing that horse to be checked and lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

YOUNG TURBO, which was following, was steadied away from the heels of FREE AND EASY and PROSPEROUS, which was following YOUNG TURBO, was also inconvenienced.

G Mosse was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Sunday, 22 January 2012 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 15 January 2012.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of LUCKY TURBO, D Beadman stated that after enjoying a good run throughout the race behind GOOD BOY BOY, he shifted LUCKY TURBO out shortly after entering the Straight and he felt that the horse would close off the race strongly.

He said however that LUCKY TURBO did not show its usual turn of foot and came under pressure prior to the 200 Metres.

He added after this LUCKY TURBO, despite being ridden out, weakened and was disappointing.

He said, in his opinion, LUCKY TURBO raced flat.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY TURBO after the race did not show any significant findings.

LUCKY TURBO, HAWTHORNE and GOOD BOY BOY were sent for sampling.
