Recap by phillip woo

Turbo Jewellery settled effectively one-out, one-back, straightened nearly six deep and ran on nicely to take control 50m out for the win. Indigo Way was able to slot in nicely with cover worse than midfield and one off the rails, swung the final bend with two wider out and let down nicely. He's always a danger over this course and distance. Shiny Day was pestered early on for the lead by Fortune Winner, before establishing a cushy advantage entering the straight a length on top and kept on gamely with the claim of Dicky Lui Cheuk-yin to hold third. Cool Bean ran on steadily late to just miss a placing off a light weight with a step up in grade. Enthusing enjoyed the gun run on the back of the speed and only held his ground over the final 150m. Peppermint made some progress late without menacing. Favourite Lucky Omens made his run third from the rear and along the rails after breaking sluggishly, stayed to the paint upon straightening and only kept on passed beaten rivals with a step up in class. He's still learning. Amazingly had a soft run three back and one off the rails, swung the final bend with three wider out and never fired.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (533)-POTTINGER HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1800Metres

LUCKY OMENS was hampered at the start when crowded for room between COOL BEAN which was taken out by CHAMPAGNE DAYS and AMAZINGLY which was taken in by ENTHUSING.

In this incident, COOL BEAN and AMAZINGLY made heavy contact.

From a wide barrier, CHEER was taken across behind runners shortly after start.

Passing the 1600 Metres, LUCKY OMENS was momentarily crowded for room inside CHAMPAGNE DAYS which, after being ridden along to maintain its position inside COOL BEAN, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse when unable to continue to maintain its position.

T H So (TURBO JEWELLERY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 1500 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of AMAZINGLY, causing that horse to be taken in onto COOL BEAN which in turn was hampered and taken across the rightful running of PEPPERMINT which was crowded for room and lost ground.

T H So was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 29 April 2013 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Macau Jockey Club racemeeting on Sunday, 21 April 2013.

In addition, T H So was fined $20,000 in lieu of a suspension for a period incorporating 1 further raceday.

Approaching the 400 Metres, OWNERS!| GLORY and CHEER raced tight as CHEER shifted out into clear running.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of LUCKY OMENS, M Chadwick stated that his mount became unbalanced on a number of occasions passing the winning post on the first occasion when shifting out abruptly and bumping OWNERS!| GLORY.

He said after this LUCKY OMENS travelled well, however, did not quicken as it did at its most recent start.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY OMENS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped.

LUCKY OMENS, TURBO JEWELLERY and INDIGO WAY were sent for sampling.
