Recap by phillip woo

Happy Cha Cha made his run third from the rear and along the rails, straightened three deep and threaded his way between runners to hit the front 150m out and edged clear to remain unbeaten in two all-weather track runs this term. Perfect Joy settled fifth and one off the fence, swung the final bend five wide, drew level with Felarof at the 200m and found the winner too good over the final 150m. Rainbow Seeker saved ground along the fence in fourth, stayed to the inside upon straightening and wore down favourite Felarof in the final few strides. Able Dragon made his run second from the rear, pushed into the clear with two wider out at the 250m and ran on all right to figure a distant fifth. Solar Boy travelled up on the speed in second, was back to third at the 800m, loomed a place chance at the 200m and gave way over the final 100m. My Whisky shared the lead with Solar Boy before opening up by nearly a length, was briefly headed by Felarof at the 800m, reclaimed the lead 600m out, was headed 250m out and stopping 200m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (677) - LUNG MUN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1650 Meters As the start was effected, ELEPHANT MAGIC bounded in the air and on landing knuckled over, resulting in its rider, A Suborics, becoming badly unbalanced in the saddle and his right foot being dislodged from the stirrup iron.

A Suborics stated that he was not able to regather the use of his right iron until passing the winning post on the first occasion by which time ELEPHANT MAGIC had lost a considerable amount of ground and was detached from the field.

He said when he became unbalanced in the saddle, all of his weight transferred to the horses left side which resulted in the saddle shifting around marginally to that side for the remainder of the race.

He said that having in mind the manner in which the horse began and that as he was concerned for the horses welfare, he did not ride his mount out after this incident.

Before being allowed to race again, ELEPHANT MAGIC will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial.

ABLE DRAGON was crowded for room at the start between SOLAR UP and GRACYTOM which shifted in.

HAPPY CHA CHA was slow to begin.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, FORTUNE BRAVO, which was travelling wide, was taken back in an endeavour to obtain cover.

FORTUNE BRAVO however was not able to obtain cover and for the majority of the race travelled wide and without cover.

Making the turn near the 700 Metres, SOLAR BOY was momentarily crowded for room inside FELAROF which, when travelling wide and without cover, got its head on the side and shifted in.

Approaching the 350 Metres, GRACYTOM was checked when disappointed for running between RAINBOW SEEKER and HAPPY CHA CHA.

Passing the 100 Metres, MIRAGE R was shifted out away from the heels of AMAZING JOURNEY.

After this, MIRAGE R raced in restricted room between AMAZING JOURNEY and MEGA POSH.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that AMAZING JOURNEY had lost its left front plate.

A veterinary inspection of ELEPHANT MAGIC and FORTUNE BRAVO after the race did not show any significant findings.

FELAROF, HAPPY CHA CHA and PERFECT JOY were sent for sampling.
