Recap by phillip woo

Firming late, Bear Hero was prominent on the speed in fourth and one off the outside fence and did get going in the shadows of the post to remain unbeaten in five outings over this course and distance. Blaze King pinged straight to the front near the grandstand side, was still a length on top at the 100m and found one better with a drop in grade. Sir Eagles jumped second from the rear with one further out on the far side from an inside gate, switched sharply to settle two off the stands side at the 800m, moved back to the centre of the track for a clear run at the 400m and finished up nicely. He was beaten by the draw and won't be far off a win over the 1,000m or 1,200m. Specked late, Oriental Prosper was up on the speed and kept plugging away to just hold fourth. Flying Smart travelled in the centre of the course and just ahead of midfield and made some progress in his first run over the straight 1,000m with a step up in grade. Favourite Go Baby Go travelled underneath Bear Hero in fifth and two off the stands side, was placed under pressure at the 200m and only held his ground over the final 100m. California Choice travelled third from the rear and closest the far side and was never a factor.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (560) - THE HONG KONG JOCKEY CLUB COMMUNITY TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 2 - 1000 Meters DIAMOND ELEGANCE was withdrawn on 19.4.12 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore foot).

CALIFORNIA CHOICE shifted out at the start, resulting in EL ZONDA being taken out onto TOUCH GO which became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters.

A veterinary inspection of CALIFORNIA CHOICE after the race revealed that the horse was a roarer which had previously been reported.

A veterinary inspection of GO BABY GO after the race did not show any significant findings.

GO BABY GO, BEAR HERO and BLAZE KING were sent for sampling.
