Recap by phillip woo

Windicator Power was nicely rated ahead of midfield and on the rails, swept to the lead two deep at the 200m and kept on gamely for an upset win. Pizzazz settled behind midfield and on the rails, shifted to the centre of the course upon straightening and let down nicely to get up second best. Chater Mikado was shuffled back to last at the 800m, was ridden to pick up at the 500m and came through nicely near the inside to just grab third ahead of debutant Earl Of Leitrim. The latter made his run fourth from the rear after breaking a tad slow, was taken a hold of and steadied at the 800m, straightened four deep, shifted off Paganini's Soul into the clear at the 250m and finished up nicely to make it close in a promising debut. He looks one to follow up to 1,400m. Gurus Dream was niggled to hold the lead until handing up to Regency Luck at the 650m, straightened three deep a length away in second and was overhauled 100m out for a placing. Tailwind was caught three deep on the speed, eased back to third at the 600m, straightened under pressure four deep and kept away one paced over the final 100m. Lucky Scepter was a handy fourth along the rails, straightened three deep and kept on OK off a light weight in his debut. Plunged late, Regency Luck gave way over the final 150m with the step up in grade. Early favourite, Straight Gold travelled keenly and found little under a left whip. Sir Eagles made his run near last and three deep, rounded the final bend widest out and never in the hunt.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (362) - FAIRY KING PRAWN HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200 Meters EXPRESS HORSE was withdrawn on 27.1.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left hind) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter PAGANINIS SOUL (M Du Plessis).

PACKING WHIZ was withdrawn on 28.1.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (fever).

Before being allowed to race again, EXPRESS HORSE and PACKING WHIZ will both be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

SIR EAGLES began awkwardly and was slow to begin.

GURUS DREAM began awkwardly.

STRAIGHT GOLD was crowded for room at the start between WINDICATOR POWER and LUCKY SCEPTER which shifted out after beginning awkwardly.

A short distance after the start, WINDICATOR POWER raced tight between STRAIGHT GOLD and REGENCY LUCK which got its head on the side and shifted in.

Near the 850 Metres, EARL OF LEITRIM got its head on the side and hung out abruptly, resulting in CHATER MIKADO being checked when crowded for room and SIR EAGLES which was racing to the outside of CHATER MIKADO also being badly crowded for room inside FLYING COLOURS.

Because of this, CHATER MIKADO, SIR EAGLES and FLYING COLOURS were all taken wider.

Before being allowed to race again, EARL OF LEITRIM will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial around a bend.

Making the first turn near the 850 Metres, GURUS DREAM and REGENCY LUCK bumped, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

LUCKY SCEPTER, which was following REGENCY LUCK, was steadied away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

Passing the 150 Metres, EARL OF LEITRIM, which was closing off the race strongly, got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly, resulting in its rider, D Whyte, changing his whip into his right hand.

Then over the concluding stages, EARL OF LEITRIM shifted out.

In the Straight, PROLIFIC CHAMPION got its head on the side and lay out.

Throughout the race, TAILWIND travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of STRAIGHT GOLD, D Beadman stated that making the first turn his mount got its head up, proved difficult to settle and shifted out.

He said after this STRAIGHT GOLD got its head on the side and lay out, however, remained racing with cover behind TAILWIND.

He said after the 700 Metres STRAIGHT GOLD commenced to travel more generously and rounding the Home Turn travelled well enough to give him the feel that it would be a good chance in the race.

He said however that after shifting to the outside of TAILWIND, STRAIGHT GOLD did not show a turn of foot and despite being ridden along was disappointing in the manner in which it did not respond to his riding.

He added over the final 200 Metres STRAIGHT GOLD was very disappointing in the manner in which it weakened out of the race.

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

The performance of STRAIGHT GOLD, a last start winner and favourite for todays race, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, STRAIGHT GOLD will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that REGENCY LUCK had lost its left hind plate.

A veterinary inspection of PROLIFIC CHAMPION and SIR EAGLES after the race did not show any significant findings.

25 January 2012 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 7 (348) The Stewards today spoke with C K Tong, the rider of VICTORY MASCOT, regarding his riding of that horse after the 1400 Metres.

C K Tong stated that after riding his mount along vigorously in the early stages to obtain a position between TAKEANOTHERCHANCE and PEPPERMINT, VICTORY MASCOT raced in restricted room between those horses after the 1400 Metres.

He said as he felt that he would have had to continue to ride VICTORY MASCOT along to maintain his position between those horses, he elected to steady VICTORY MASCOT rather than maintain this position.

C K Tong was advised that he must at all times ride competitively and maintain advantageous positions wherever possible.
