Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite, Bullish Friend went a steady clip on the lead, turned the final bend a half-length on top, was narrowly headed by Flagship Shine along his inside at the 100m and fought back to earn the victory in a bob of heads. Flagship Shine settled fourth along the rails, stayed to the inside upon straightening, copped a bump from the winner and was caught a lip on the line. Beauty Sparkle settled one off the fence in second, straightened three deep and kept on gamely to hold a placing in an improved effort. Lucky Warrior was posted without cover in a handy spot, cornered in five wide and kept on well to just miss a placing. Finn Maccool kept grinding away without looking a threat. Mentor kept on one-paced with every chance. Psychologist was patiently ridden, was held up for a run near the inside until the 300m, switched into the clear at the 150m and finished up nicely in an improved effort.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (414)-CITIBANK CITIBUSINESS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Metres

After being loaded, CROATIA became fractious.

Before being allowed to race again, CROATIA will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped GOOD LUCK WIN which in turn shifted out, resulting in HOXO being hampered.

From wide barriers, PSYCHOLOGIST and BRIGHT STAR were taken across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early stages, DYNAMIC VOYAGE proved very difficult to settle and for some distance after the 800 Metres got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of SUPER CAGA.

For some distance prior to the 600 Metres, GOOD LUCK WIN, which was over-racing, was checked away from the heels of MENTOR.

After the 600 Metres and again in the Straight, CROATIA got its head on the side and lay out.

PSYCHOLOGIST was badly held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

PSYCHOLOGIST was again held up for clear running for a short distance after the 150 Metres when being shifted to the outside of MENTOR and LUCKY WARRIOR to obtain clear running.

GOOD LUCK WIN had difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight.

The Stewards considered a protest/objection lodged by Mr J Moore, the trainer of FLAGSHIP SHINE, which finished 2nd, against BULLISH FRIEND being declared the winner alleging interference to FLAGSHIP SHINE at about the 200 Metres.

After taking evidence from all parties concerned and after viewing the official videos, the Stewards found that after obtaining tight running to the inside of BULLISH FRIEND near the 200 Metres, FLAGSHIP SHINE became unbalanced when briefly crowded for room inside that horse which shifted in.

The Stewards further found that after this incident FLAGSHIP SHINE was able to assume the lead and establish a margin over BULLISH FRIEND and then in the run to the line BULLISH FRIEND came back to beat FLAGSHIP SHINE.

In all the circumstances, the Stewards could not be comfortably satisfied that had the incident not occurred near the 200 Metres that FLAGSHIP SHINE would have beaten BULLISH FRIEND.

Accordingly, Mr Moores protest/objection was overruled and the placings as semaphored by the Judge were confirmed.

Throughout the race, LUCKY WARRIOR and SUPER CAGA travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, it was noted that FLAGSHIP SHINE had lost its right front plate.

A veterinary inspection of HOXO immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BULLISH FRIEND and FLAGSHIP SHINE were sent for sampling.
