Recap by phillip woo

Silver Dragon was ridden along early on to hold a position near the fence third from the rear, shifted off heels for a clear run five deep at the 220m and quickened nicely to get up 20m out at long odds despite winning a start earlier. Mi Savvy settled behind midfield and one off the rails, straightened to the outside of Silver Dragon and finished willingly for second despite trying to take a bite out of the winner near the wire. Early favourite Hit The Bid cornered nearly two lengths on top after dictating a genuine pace and was swamped close to home. Polymer Win travelled fourth along the rails, straightened one off the fence and stayed on reasonably well to just miss a placing carrying top weight. Sea Ruby settled effectively one-out, one-back, moved to second three deep at the 60m and found a few too smart in the end. Late-fancied favourite Secret Agent settled one off in midfield, swung the final bend with one wider out and only held his ground over the final 200m. Bright Star was never properly tested over the final 250m following a three back run along the rails. Jolly Posh was stopping 200m out after stalking the leader one off the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Three: (295)-KINGSTON HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Metres

FAMILY INTERESTS was withdrawn on 6.1.15 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame left fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter HIT THE BID.

Before being allowed to race again, FAMILY INTERESTS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

AZTEC EMPIRE was slow to begin.

BRIGHT STAR shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of POLYMER WIN.

From the outside barriers, A FAST ONE and FOREVER FUN were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1000 Metres, BRIGHT STAR was hampered when bumped by POLYMER WIN which was taken in by SEA RUBY which in turn was taken in by JOLLY POSH (N Callan).

N Callan was reprimanded and advised to ensure that he is sufficiently clear of other runners when shifting ground in similar circumstances.

Approaching the 900 Metres, BRIGHT STAR was steadied when momentarily crowded for room inside POLYMER WIN which shifted in away from SEA RUBY.

Approaching the turn after the 600 Metres, JOLLY POSH got its head on the side and lay in.

Over the concluding stages, POLYMER WIN and SEA RUBY raced tight.

Close to the finishing line, MI SAVVY turned its head to the right and attempted to savage SILVER DRAGON.

Having regard to the nature of this incident, Mr R Gibson, the trainer of MI SAVVY, was told that as this was the second occasion on which the horse had attempted to savage another runner in a race, should it offend similarly again in the future, consideration will be given to taking further action which may include making a recommendation to the Board of Stewards that the entry of the horse be refused.

BRIGHT STAR was unable to obtain clear running at any stage in the Straight and consequently was not able to be tested.

Throughout the race, JOY TOGETHER travelled wide and without cover.

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

SECRET AGENT, SILVER DRAGON and MI SAVVY were sent for sampling.
