Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Red Courage was pushed to lead through slow fractions, cornered in a length on top, was challenged on both sides at the 200m and fought on gamely to narrowly open his account. The earlier experience allowed him to prevail in the end. Fiery Whisperer sat on the back of the speed and one off the fence, cornered in four deep and stayed on nicely in a pleasing debut effort. Bullish Friend made his run at the rear following a slow break, moved closer and in a bumping match at the 500m, cornered in with one wider out and kept on nicely to make it interesting at the finish. Expedite eventually settled in the box-seat, stayed to the inside upon straightening, loomed a chance at the 200m and came up flat over the last 100m with every chance. Well-punted late, Keep-A-Pin settled fourth, came off the fence at the 800m after the anchor was dropped further, rounded the final bend widest out, ducked inside at the 150m and kept on evenly. Mizzen Grey and Goal And Gold will need more time.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (637) - SUPER WIN PLATE - Griffin Race - 1200 Meters BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly and lost ground.

After being crossed by RED COURAGE approaching the 800 Metres, EXPEDITE proved difficult to settle and was steadied away from the heels of that horse for some distance.

Making the first turn near the 650 Metres, KEEP-A-PIN got its head on the side and hung out, taking GOAL AND GOLD wider.

After this, KEEP-A-PIN continued to hang out, resulting in GOAL AND GOLD being taken wider still.

Approaching the 600 Metres, BULLISH FRIEND was checked when disappointed for running between KEEP-A-PIN and MIZZEN GREY which shifted out away from the heels of EXPEDITE.

After this, BULLISH FRIEND was able to secure running between MIZZEN GREY and KEEP-A-PIN and for some distance approaching the Home Turn was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FIERY WHISPERER.

Rounding the Home Turn, BULLISH FRIEND and KEEP-A-PIN raced tight as BULLISH FRIEND improved to the outside of FIERY WHISPERER.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on FIERY WHISPERER at the request of Trainer K W Lui.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, FIERY WHISPERER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

It was also reported that FIERY WHISPERER had lost its left front plate.

Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that KEEP-A-PIN had lost its right front plate.

RED COURAGE and FIERY WHISPERER were sent for sampling.
