Recap by phillip woo

In a pace dominated race, Lucky Red was posted deep on the lead with Good Smile travelling underneath him, cornered in three deep with a narrow lead and kept finding gamely to come out on top. Vital Smart enjoyed the box-seat run, shifted five wide at the 250m and got up in the final bob from Good Smile for second. Plunged late to jump favourite, Good Smile vied for the lead along the inside, stayed to the fence upon straightened and fought on reasonably well. Well-punted late, Shanghai Pioneer settled midfield and two deep, hit the straight six wide and made some ground late without threatening. Bear Express made his run third from the rear and on the rails, cornered in three deep and ran on reasonably well to pick up some minor prize money. He's looking for a further trip. Early favourite Happy Champion travelled fourth from the rear and two-to-three deep from a wide gate, hit the straight widest out and made ground without ever menacing. He too is crying out for a longer trip. Supreme De Union settled second from the rear from the widest gate, hit the final bend with one deeper out and was passing beaten runners late. Gold Winner faded back to settle at the rear from a wide gate, stayed to the inside upon straightening and never was a factor. City Of Lights swung the final bend five wide and was stopping 150m out. He'll need more experience.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (306) - KINGSTON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000 Meters On arrival at the barriers, it was noted that VITAL SMART had lost its left front plate.

This plate was refitted.

VITAL SMART was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

GOLD WINNER, which was fractious in the barriers, was slow to begin and then shortly after the start was checked when crowded for room between SUPREME DE UNION and HAPPY CHAMPION which shifted out after being bumped by SPICY SHRIMP.

After this, GOLD WINNER was taken across behind runners.

CITY OF LIGHTS was slow to begin.

From the outside barrier, SUPREME DE UNION was taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

After being taken across behind runners, SUPREME DE UNION proved difficult to settle in the early and middle stages.

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

GALLANT MAMBO continued to hang out until after entering the Home Straight.

A veterinary inspection of GALLANT MAMBO after the race noted blood to be present at the left nostril.

An endoscopic examination of the horse revealed the trachea to be clean and that there was trauma to the left nasal passage.

Accordingly, GALLANT MAMBO was not deemed to have bled.

The performance of GALLANT MAMBO was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, GALLANT MAMBO will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Near the 50 Metres, SHANGHAI PIONEER was momentarily awkwardly placed behind VITAL SMART which shifted out.

Throughout the race, SPICY SHRIMP travelled wide and without cover.

H W Lai pleaded guilty to a breach of Rule 100(2) in that he failed to ride HAPPY CHAMPION, 6th placegetter, out to the end of the race to the satisfaction of the Stewards.

For this breach of the Rule, H W Lai was fined a sum of $20,000.

A veterinary inspection of GOLD WINNER after the race did not show any significant findings.

GOOD SMILE, LUCKY RED and VITAL SMART were sent for sampling.
