Recap by phillip woo

Joy Together settled midfield and on the stands side and got going nicely over the final 150m to gun down the favourite Brave Brother in the final few metres for an upset win with late-market action. Brave Brother wasn't the quickest into stride from an inside gate, strode forward to sit up on the speed near the far side at the 800m, went to the front while shifting out under pressure at the 250m and found one too good in the end. Winning Advantage finished up nicely to snatch third from Cheers Victories in the final stride in a pleasing debut performance. Cheers Victories was prominent in the run and was overhauled late for a placing. Golden Legend switched to the centre of the course for a clear run at the 150m and made some ground late. Po Ching King was under pressure approaching the 400m and was stopping 300m out. Yat Ding Win had to take hold 50m out. Share Of Gold and Southern Cross stopped badly.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (509)-HOMESTEAD HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1000Metres

On arrival at the Start, CALL ME ACHIEVER had its right front plate refitted.

CALL ME ACHIEVER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

SHARE OF GOLD began awkwardly and shortly after the start became unbalanced after being steadied away from the heels of PO CHING KING after shifting out towards the heels of that horse.

YAT DING WIN began very awkwardly, shifted in and in doing so bumped GOLDEN LEGEND.

Near the 500 Metres, GOLDEN LEGEND and WINNING ADVANTAGE were crowded for room between YAT DING WIN which shifted in and SOUTHERN CROSS which shifted out after being bumped by CALL ME ACHIEVER which shifted out slightly.

At the 400 Metres, BRAVE BROTHER got its head on the side and hung in, resulting in its rider, D Whyte, changing his whip through to his right hand.

When placed under pressure after the 400 Metres, SOUTHERN SPRINGS raced greenly.

Approaching the 200 Metres, BRAVE BROTHER again got its head on the side and shifted out, resulting in SHARE OF GOLD being inconvenienced.

D Whyte (BRAVE BROTHER) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 100 Metres he failed to take sufficient measures to prevent his mount from shifting out across the rightful running of SHARE OF GOLD which as a result was checked and lost the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

D Whyte was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Thursday, 18 April 2013 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 10 April 2013.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards acknowledged the racing manners of BRAVE BROTHER over the final 400 Metres which had contributed to this incident.

When SHARE OF GOLD was checked, GOLDEN LEGEND, which was following, was obliged to shift in away from the heels of that horse to obtain clear running.

After improving quickly between YAT DING WIN and CHEERS VICTORIES which shifted in approaching the 50 Metres, WINNING ADVANTAGE was then taken out across the running of YAT DING WIN when CHEERS VICTORIES shifted out slightly.

As a result of this, YAT DING WIN was checked when unable to maintain its position to the outside of WINNING ADVANTAGE.

BRAVE BROTHER continued to hang out over the concluding stages and in the run to the line shifted out, resulting in CHEERS VICTORIES and WINNING ADVANTAGE being hampered.

Because of this, neither CHEERS VICTORIES nor WINNING ADVANTAGE were able to be fully tested over the concluding stages.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that BRAVE BROTHER and SOUTHERN CROSS had both lost their left front plates.

A veterinary inspection of SHARE OF GOLD immediately following the race revealed the horse to have bled in both nostrils and was also lame in its right hind leg.

Before being allowed to race again, SHARE OF GOLD will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

JOY TOGETHER and BRAVE BROTHER were sent for sampling.
