Recap by phillip woo

Helene Happy Star found the front from a wide gate, cornered a half-length on top from Khaya, drew clear by three lengths at the 300m and held off Renaissance Art for a first local win at his seventh start. Renaissance Art settled one off in fourth, straightened three deep and was clawing back the margin late. Take To The Limit travelled behind midfield along the rails, straightened four deep and ran on well for a placing in another positive run. Savvy Nature settled three back and one off the rails, rounded the final bend with three wider out and ran on steadily to grab a Quartet spot. Bubble Chic was posted deep near the speed until landing a spot with cover at the 1,500m, straightened three deep and was one-paced over the final 200m. Khaya stalked the speed in second, challenged for the front at the 500m and was giving ground 300m out. Got Fly only passed a few after travelling fifth from the rear. Thunder Fantasy lost steam over the final 200m after enjoying a lovely run on the back of the speed. Wayfoong Express only held his ground after travelling third from the rear. Shamkiyr was gone before the final bend. California Memory pulled up 700m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (605)-THE QUEEN MOTHER MEMORIAL CUP (HANDICAP) - Hong Kong Group Three - 2400Metres

LUCKY OMENS was slow to begin.

Shortly after the start, KHAYA shifted out and bumped RENAISSANCE ART.

Near the 2200 Metres, KHAYA was steadied away from the heels of HELENE HAPPY STAR (N Callan) which shifted in when not properly clear.

N Callan was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care.

Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SHAMKIYR got its head up when proving difficult to settle.

Passing the winning post on the first occasion, SHAMKIYR again got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of THUNDER FANTASY.

CALIFORNIA MEMORY was eased out of the race near the 800 Metres.

A Suborics stated that as his mount became unbalanced in its action and was not stretching out, he believed it was in its best interests for it to take no further part in the race.

A veterinary inspection of CALIFORNIA MEMORY immediately following the race revealed that the horse was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

Before being allowed to race again, CALIFORNIA MEMORY will be required to perform satisfactorily in an official barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

J Moreira, the rider of the 4th placed, SAVVY NATURE, was advised that whilst the Stewards were satisfied his riding out of the horse over the concluding stages had no bearing on its finishing position, nonetheless he was reminded of his obligation to ride his mounts out at least hands and heels wherever circumstances permit.

After the race, both B Prebble (THUNDER FANTASY) and D Whyte (GOT FLY) reported that their mounts did not handle the track conditions.

A veterinary inspection of THUNDER FANTASY, GOT FLY and WAYFOONG EXPRESS immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GOT FLY, HELENE HAPPY STAR and RENAISSANCE ART were sent for sampling.
