Recap by phillip woo

How Speedy found a nice position one off in midfield from a tricky gate, swung the final bend with two wider out and finished nicely to nail outsider Kim Glory in the final stride for the win. Kim Glory sped to the front one off the fence outside Tomodachi, cornered a length clear and kept on gamely. Post-time favourite Secret Agent settled one off the fence in fifth, rounded the final bend with three wider out and finished reasonably well for a placing. A Fast One was ridden for luck fourth from the rear and two off the rails from a wide gate, swung the final bend with one wider out and was making a good bid late to snatch a Quartet spot. Wonderful Fighter plugged on alright four deep after slotting one off in third from a wide gate at the 1,000m. Early favourite Tomodachi just isn't the same horse if he doesn't get the lead and was yielding ground 150m out. Newcomer Pearl Warm Warm made a mild bid from behind midfield. Hayhay was nicely positioned along the rails in fourth, was under the pump a long way out and came back to the field 200m out in a disappointing effort following a last-start win.

Racing Incident Report

Race Two: (591)-LYREBIRD HANDICAP (Sec2) - Class 4 - 1200Metres

On jumping, HAPPY AND HEALTHY, PEARL WARM WARM and FUN TAPESTRY were all checked when crowded for room between KIM GLORY which shifted in slightly after initially being bumped on the hindquarters by HAPPY AND HEALTHY and SECRET AGENT which got its head on the side and shifted out abruptly despite the efforts of its rider.

From wide barriers, HEARTILY WINS and A FAST ONE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Passing the 900 Metres, SUCCESS AND GOLD was badly crowded for room inside PEARL WARM WARM which got its head on the side and shifted in abruptly away from HOW SPEEDY.

HEARTILY WINS, which was following, was inconvenienced.

Rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, FUN TAPESTRY was awkwardly placed close to the heels of HAYHAY.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of HAYHAY, C Y Ho stated that he had been given identical instructions to last start, namely to lead as HAYHAY races best when not having to follow another horse.

He said in accordance with his instructions, he rode HAYHAY aggressively for a considerable distance in the early stages to prevent KIM GLORY from crossing HAYHAY.

He said despite being vigorously ridden, HAYHAY did not show the same early speed as KIM GLORY and that horse was able to cross HAYHAY making the turn near the 1000 Metres.

He said after being crossed by KIM GLORY, HAYHAY then immediately came off the bridle and despite him continuing to ride the horse along, HAYHAY did not travel and then in the Straight failed to respond to his riding.

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

The performance of HAYHAY, which was successful at its last start, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, HAYHAY will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of PEARL WARM WARM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SECRET AGENT, HOW SPEEDY and KIM GLORY were sent for sampling.
