Recap by phillip woo

Well-backed late, General Of Patch was given a perfect ride one-out, one-back, advanced to the front and kept on gamely for a second win from his past three starts. Enormous Honour was posted three deep with cover in midfield and finished well despite laying in under pressure. Happy Agility travelled one off worse than midfield and finished up well in a ding-dong battle for the minors. Happy Place was held up until the 200m following a rails run in midfield and kept on reasonably well thereafter. Kiram was ridden for luck from a wide gate and was getting going late without threatening. Joyful Moments made some ground after a three deep run near the back. Classic Emperor cornered a length on top after enjoying his own time on the lead but punctured 100m out. Wah May Friend was stopping 150m out. Favourite People's Knight did not let down.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (356)-WANG CHAU HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1600Metres

As G Mosse was unable to fulfil the engagement on TRIUMPHANT DRAGON due to being overweight, S de Sousa was substituted as the rider of that horse.

G Mosse was fined the sum of $5,000.

After being loaded, WAH MAY FRIEND became fractious and reared before getting its head and left front leg over into the adjacent stall.

WAH MAY FRIEND was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

Before being allowed to race again, WAH MAY FRIEND will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

Also after being loaded, PEOPLE'S KNIGHT became fractious, reared up and momentarily sat down.

PEOPLE'S KNIGHT was removed from the barriers and examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

TRIUMPHANT DRAGON began awkwardly.

JOYFUL MOMENTS was steadied shortly after the start and shifted across to obtain cover.

From a wide barrier, PACKING GO GO was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.

Approaching the 1500 Metres, GENERAL OF PATCH was momentarily steadied away from the heels of CLASSIC EMPEROR which shifted in when just clear.

Approaching the 1400 Metres, HAPPY AGILITY became unbalanced when being steadied away from the heels of GENERAL OF PATCH which was taken in by WAH MAY FRIEND (N Callan).

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

Approaching and passing the 1200 Metres, GENERAL OF PATCH proved difficult to settle.

HAPPY AGILITY got its head up when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed close to the heels of GENERAL OF PATCH passing the 1100 Metres.

HAPPY PLACE had difficulty obtaining clear running approaching the 200 Metres.

CHOICE TREASURE, which was commencing to give ground, momentarily raced in restricted room passing the 200 Metres between HAPPY AGILITY and ENORMOUS HONOUR, both of which shifted ground.

Near the 100 Metres, JOYFUL MOMENTS and KIRAM raced tight.

Throughout the race, CHOICE TREASURE travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, C Schofield stated that he was instructed to ride JOYFUL MOMENTS patiently as it was felt that the horse is able to finish off its races better when ridden in this fashion.

He said whilst the horse had run second at its last start when ridden near the speed, it did not close off as strongly as hoped.

He added it was his opinion that JOYFUL MOMENTS appreciated being ridden patiently and closed off well until reaching the 100 Metres where its run finished.

He said, in his opinion, JOYFUL MOMENTS struggles to run out the strong 1600 Metres.

When questioned regarding the disappointing performance of PEOPLE'S KNIGHT, J Moreira stated that his mount became stirred up after being fractious in the barriers.

He said it had been intended for PEOPLE'S KNIGHT to be ridden in about a midfield position if possible, however, the horse raced further back than had been intended as it did not travel comfortably throughout the race and particularly in the early stages.

He said he shifted his mount to the outside of runners in the Straight in the hope that it would finish off the race, however, PEOPLE'S KNIGHT did not respond to his riding and was disappointing in its failure to close off.

A veterinary inspection of PEOPLE'S KNIGHT immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of PEOPLE'S KNIGHT, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable.

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

A veterinary inspection of WAH MAY FRIEND and CLASSIC EMPEROR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

PEOPLE'S KNIGHT, GENERAL OF PATCH and ENORMOUS HONOUR were sent for sampling.

2.

20 January 2016 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 8 (345) The Stewards today questioned Apprentice H N Wong, the rider of FAT CHOY HONG KONG, regarding the tempo that he set when leading this race.

Apprentice Wong stated he was mindful that he had incurred a careless riding suspension when riding this horse on 22 October 2015 after he pressed forward from a wide barrier and then attempted to steady the tempo.

He added as FAT CHOY HONG KONG had drawn 11 in last Wednesday's race, he was obliged to ride his mount along in the early stages to cross into the lead and he did not want to restrain FAT CHOY HONG KONG excessively.

He said as he was aware that the tempo that he was setting was faster than standard, he had, after the 1200 Metres, attempted to steady FAT CHOY HONG KONG, however, not excessively.

Apprentice Wong was advised to ensure that he is mindful of the tempo that he sets on horses so that they are able to finish off their races as best as they are able under the circumstances.
