Recap by phillip woo

Happy Yeah Yeah jumped slowly, straightened along the fence and finished willingly to snatch victory on the wire from Disciples Twelve. The strong tempo suited him well. Disciples Twelve was snagged back from a wide gate to settle second from the rear, stayed near the inside upon straightening, swept to the front 100m out and found one better on the evening. Punted late, Smart Man travelled behind midfield along the fence, cornered four deep and had to check off the heels of Harbour Punk 100m out to get up for a placing. Harbour Punk was ridden along to cross for the lead at the 1,000m, still was two lengths on top upon straightening and was grudgingly giving way while shifting out under pressure over the final 200m. Pablosky settled one off in midfield, swung the final bend with two wider out and ran on steadily without threatening. Go Baby Go was in the box seat coming into the final bend, straightened three deep and was stopping 100m out. Favourite All Great Friends travelled fore of midfield along the rails, rounded the final bend six deep and stayed on without menacing. Precision King sat one off in second, straightened four deep and copped a check when giving ground 150m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (458)-ARSENAL HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

When parading, PABLOSKY kicked a rail.

PABLOSKY was examined by the Veterinary Officer on arrival at the Start and found to be suitable to race.

FABULOUS NOVEMBER began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped HARBOUR PUNK.

BULLISH FRIEND began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped PRECISION KING.

HAPPY YEAH YEAH began only fairly.

From the outside barrier, DISCIPLES TWELVE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

GO BABY GO lost its left hind plate in the middle stages.

After the 600 Metres, SILLY BUDDIES was left racing wide and without cover.

For some distance approaching and passing the 400 Metres, ALL GREAT FRIENDS raced tight between BULLISH FRIEND and GO BABY GO after improving into tight running between those horses.

CHARITY JOY was unable to obtain clear running from passing the 200 Metres until approaching the 100 Metres.

M L Yeung (HAPPY YEAH YEAH) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 50 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not sufficiently clear of GO BABY GO, causing that horse to be hampered and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

M L Yeung was suspended from riding in races for a period to expire on Monday, 13 April 2015 on which day he may resume race riding (3 Hong Kong racedays).

The commencement of the suspension was deferred until after the Sha Tin racemeeting on Sunday, 29 March 2015.

Over the concluding stages, ALL GREAT FRIENDS was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HARBOUR PUNK and consequently was not able to be ridden out all the way to the end of the race.

In the Straight, FABULOUS NOVEMBER lay out under pressure The Stewards adjourned an inquiry into the reason for PRECISION KING being hampered near the 900 Metres and for PRECISION KING and SMART MAN both being hampered near the 100 Metres to allow Mr P F Yiu, the allocated trainer of Apprentice C Y Lui to be in attendance.

Mr Yiu was not on course for the running of the final event.

These inquiries were adjourned until prior to the first race at the Sha Tin racemeeting to be conducted on Sunday, 15 March 2015.

A veterinary inspection of PRECISION KING immediately following the race found the horse to have blood at its left nostril, however, an endoscopic examination found it not to have blood at its trachea and accordingly PRECISION KING was not deemed to have bled.

A veterinary inspection of ALL GREAT FRIENDS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PABLOSKY, HAPPY YEAH YEAH and DISCIPLES TWELVE were sent for sampling.
