Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Rocket Proud settled midfield and one off the fence, shifted his way into the clear out of a traffic jam at the 300m, swept to the front 120m out and kept on nicely to score an overdue win after knocking on the door in two earlier Class Five performances. Well-punted in the dying stages, Gorgeous Life made his run four from the rear and along the fence, turned outside Dark Secret six off the rails and was running on strongest of all to snare second in the final 20m. Dark Secret settled behind midfield and on the rails, rallied six wide upon straightening, loomed a winning chance at the 200m and run peaked 100m out. Scent Of Osmanthus made a steady bid to fill the frame in fourth without menacing the placegetters. Caga Spirit made his usual late burst passed beaten gallopers, while Super Gentlemen plugged away one-paced over the final 200m. Lotus Love rushed up from a wide gate to lead at the 900m from Think Big, straightened near two lengths on top and lost a placing 120m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (761) - GOLDEN YEARS HANDICAP - Class 5 - 1400 Meters From the outside barriers, HUMONGUS and KIMBER FORTUNE were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early stages, CAGA SPIRIT proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, PAPAS and SCENT OF OSMANTHUS momentarily raced tight outside ROCKET PROUD which shifted out.

Near the 650 Metres, KING OF FISH II and THINK BIG raced tight as THINK BIG attempted to shift out from behind LOTUS LOVE.

Approaching the 200 Metres, GORGEOUS LIFE was momentarily held up for clear running behind SCENT OF OSMANTHUS and DARK SECRET.

Throughout the race, SUPER GENTLEMAN and SCENT OF OSMANTHUS travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K C Leung stated that he had been asked to ride GORGEOUS LIFE in about 5th or 6th position if possible.

He said it was felt that there were a number of horses which possess pace drawn to the inside of GORGEOUS LIFE and therefore he was asked to ride the horse along out of the barriers and attempt to obtain a position with cover if possible.

He said GORGEOUS LIFE began only fairly and after initially riding his mount along, he observed that PRIMROSE BOY and DARK SECRET, which were drawn to his inside, already had established a margin over GORGEOUS LIFE.

He said for this reason, rather than continuing to ride his mount along and risk being left racing wide, he elected to shift GORGEOUS LIFE across behind runners and obtained a position closer to the rail with cover.

He said this resulted in GORGEOUS LIFE racing further back in the field than had been intended.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that KIMBER FORTUNE had lost its left hind plate.

Also after the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on PRIMROSE BOY at the request of Trainer D J Hall.

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

Before being allowed to race again, PRIMROSE BOY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

ROCKET PROUD and GORGEOUS LIFE were sent for sampling.
