Recap by phillip woo

Club Life rolled forward to lead at favourable sectionals from a wide gate, cornered a length on top, doubled his advantage at the 200m and kept finding to score a mild upset with some money coming for him late. Boy Oh Boy was patiently ridden at the tail from a wide gate, picked up ground one off the rails upon straightening, pulled out four deep 80m out and ran down Asia Rising in the final stride for second. Asia Rising settled second last along the rails, moved closer to midfield at the 800m, straightened two-to-three deep, worked to second passing the 100m and kept on gamely thereafter. Redwood Baby made his run third from the rear and three deep with cover, swung the final bend widest out and finished well to just miss a placing with a return to Sha Tin. He needs a longer trip. Favourite Let Me Go settled three back along the rails, worked to second four deep at the 150m and came up flat 100m out. D'Or Wongchoy kept plugging away without ever menacing.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (602)-CHEK LAP KOK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Metres

Jockey O Doleuze (ASIA RISING) was fined the sum of $5,000 for presenting to weigh out for this race with an incorrect saddle cloth.

PEPPERMINT began awkwardly and shortly after the start raced tight between WHY NOT and LET ME GO, both of which shifted ground.

As the start was effected, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION lifted its front feet off the ground and began only fairly and then a short distance later became unbalanced and lost ground when crowded for room between GO GO WIN and CREATIVE WINNER which shifted out abruptly.

In this incident, GO GO WIN became unbalanced after bumping with AMBITIOUS CHAMPION.

From wide barriers, ONGOING VOLATILITY and ASIA RISING were taken across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, CREATIVE WINNER got its head up when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed close to the heels of D'OR WONGCHOY.

After this, CREATIVE WINNER continued to prove difficult to settle and when left racing wide was allowed to improve its position to race outside the lead.

Near the 1100 Metres, KEEN TACTICS, which was proving difficult to settle, was left racing without cover and after the 1000 Metres was allowed to improve its position.

After the 700 Metres, ASIA RISING got its head up when being checked away from the heels of PEPPERMINT.

ONGOING VOLATILITY was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 300 Metres momentarily raced tight between AMBITIOUS CHAMPION (K Teetan) and GO GO WIN, both of which shifted ground marginally.

After this, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION was directed out to relieve the tightening to ONGOING VOLATILITY.

When AMBITIOUS CHAMPION shifted out to be racing tight inside REDWOOD BABY approaching the 200 Metres, AMBITIOUS CHAMPION then shifted in abruptly, resulting in ONGOING VOLATILITY having to be checked.

K Teetan was advised that whilst the racing manners of AMBITIOUS CHAMPION had played a significant part in this incident, he would be expected in similar circumstances to put the whip away and make every endeavour to keep his mount on a straight course.

For the majority of the race, CLUB LIFE raced with its head on the side.

A veterinary inspection of AMBITIOUS CHAMPION, KEEN TACTICS and ONGOING VOLATILITY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LET ME GO, CLUB LIFE and BOY OH BOY were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

Jockey J Moreira was fined the sum of $2,000 for failing to arrive on course by the required time.

30 April 2014 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 8 (591) The Stewards today questioned Mr A S Cruz, the trainer of BEAUTY SPARKLE, regarding the improved performance of the horse.

Mr Cruz stated that at its second last run when the horse finished last, BEAUTY SPARKLE had begun very awkwardly and had to be ridden along for some distance in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

He said after this occurred, BEAUTY SPARKLE did not settle and consequently was not able to finish off the race after racing behind the leading horses.

He said at its most recent race over 1000 Metres, the horse was disappointing after again obtaining a position behind the leading horses.

He said he attributed BEAUTY SPARKLE's improved performance to the race distance of 1200 Metres which he believes is more to the horse's liking and by being able to lead the race.

He added, if at all possible, he will avoid racing the horse again over 1000 Metres albeit the programming of suitable races would have a bearing of his ability to select the right race for the horse.

He said he was also of the view that 1200 Metre races allow BEAUTY SPARKLE more opportunity to lead which he believes is when the horse performs best.

Additional Veterinary Reports from Happy Valley Racemeeting on 30 April 2014 The Clinical Veterinary Surgeon reported that BRAVENESS was lame in its right front knee after racing.
