Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Wonderful Moments took a bit of time to lead from gate 12, came to the final bend a length on top and drew clear for a convincing first win at his fourth start. Sun Pins made his run worse than midfield along the fence after recovering from a tardy break, stayed to the inside upon straightening and rallied well to enter the Quinella spot 200m out. Fantastic Kaka rolled forward without cover to sharply duck in with cover one off in third at the 900m, rallied four deep upon straightening and ran on steadily to complete a popular trio result as the late-fancied favourite. Principal eased back to settle second from the rear, angled into open four deep at the 200m and got going late to secure a Quartet spot. Nice Folks made his run third from the rear and two off the rails, rounded the final bend with two wider out and was doing some nice work late. I'm In Charge eyeballed Wonderful Moments for the lead to his outside from a wide gate, straightened three deep and was yielding ground at the 250m. Owners' Pride was always covering ground deep on the track near the rear, swung the final bend widest out and was never a factor. Hard Ball Get was handy along the fence, was shuffled back to midfield and one off the rails following a check at the 900m, swung the final bend four-to-five deep and was only plodding in the straight run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (638)-KWONG FUK HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1400Metres

After the running of Race 6, the Stewards acceded to a request from C K Tong that he be relieved of his engagement in this race on SNITZEL KID in order to attend to a member of his immediate family.

As such, permission was given for W M Lai to be substituted as the rider of SNITZEL KID.

PEPPERMINT was slow to begin.

SUN PINS was slow to begin and then lost further ground when bumped by HARD BALL GET which shifted in.

OWNERS' PRIDE shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of REAL SUPREME which became unbalanced.

Near the 1100 Metres, SNITZEL KID commenced to prove very difficult to settle and got its head up when being steadied to allow I'M IN CHARGE to cross.

Passing the 1100 Metres, OWNERS' PRIDE proved difficult to settle.

D Whyte (FANTASTIC KAKA) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 900 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of SNITZEL KID, resulting in that horse being taken across the rightful running of HARD BALL GET which as a result was checked and shifted out, causing SUPREME FALCON and REAL SUPREME to be severely hampered.

OWNERS' PRIDE, which was following SUPREME FALCON, was hampered in consequence and NICE FOLKS was inconvenienced.

After this, both SUPREME FALCON and REAL SUPREME travelled wide and without cover.

D Whyte was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Friday, 6 June 2014 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, 28 May 2014.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey Whyte's good race riding record during the current racing season.

Near the 850 Metres, FANTASTIC KAKA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HARD BALL GET.

Near the 750 Metres, HARD BALL GET was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FANTASTIC KAKA.

A veterinary inspection of OWNERS' PRIDE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

FANTASTIC KAKA, WONDERFUL MOMENTS and SUN PINS were sent for sampling.
