Recap by phillip woo

Favourite Lucky Year eased into the open five deep at the 250m following a rails run in midfield and quickened nicely to win going away 60m out for a sixth win from 11 outings. Almababy rushed to the lead 1,000m out from a wide gate, cornered near two lengths on top and found one too good in the end. Born In China was badly checked when trying to get to the outside of Turf Sprint 260m out and finished up nicely when balancing up to run down Eroico for a placing. He should have made it a lot closer at the finish. Eroico was handy in the run without cover, ranged up four deep to loom a chance at the 200m and came up one-paced over the final 150m. Turf Sprint kept up an even gallop after straightening four deep following a prominent run with cover. He had no excuse. Wah May Friend made some ground without menacing two from the right after travelling fourth from the rear. Golden Harvest made some progress widest out after travelling second from the rear. Specked late, Fabulous November was always out back and never a factor. Happy Yeah Yeah faded badly following a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (772)-LUGER HANDICAP - Class 2 - 1200Metres

On jumping, EROICO was bumped by ALMABABY which was taken out by GOLDEN HARVEST.

WAH MAY FRIEND was hampered when crowded for room shortly after the start between JOLLY CONVERGENCE and FABULOUS NOVEMBER, both of which shifted ground.

Near the 1150 Metres, WAH MAY FRIEND was bumped by FABULOUS NOVEMBER which was taken out by TURF SPRINT.

FREDERICK ENGELS lost its left front plate after the 1000 Metres.

At the entrance to the Straight, FREDERICK ENGELS became unbalanced after being bumped by BORN IN CHINA which attempted to improve between FREDERICK ENGELS and TURF SPRINT where there was not sufficient room.

As a result of this contact, FREDERICK ENGELS became unbalanced.

A short distance later passing the 300 Metres, BORN IN CHINA was severely checked when crowded for room between FREDERICK ENGELS which continued to maintain its position and TURF SPRINT (Apprentice K K Chiong) which, after racing tight outside LUCKY YEAR, then shifted out marginally away from that horse as LUCKY YEAR was shifted to the outside of EROICO to obtain clear running.

As the Stewards were of the view that BORN IN CHINA had not properly established running between TURF SPRINT and FREDERICK ENGELS, and given that TURF SPRINT then shifted out marginally away from LUCKY YEAR, they did not take the matter any further despite the incident being one of some significance other than to advise Apprentice Chiong to make every endeavour to keep her mounts on a straight course.

Near the 350 Metres, TURF SPRINT attempted to shift out from behind GO BABY GO and bumped the hindquarters of EROICO which became unbalanced.

For the majority of the race, EROICO travelled wide and without cover.

During the race, FABULOUS NOVEMBER raced with its head on the side and lay out.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY YEAH YEAH immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea and also revealed that it was displaying an irregular heart rhythm.

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

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

LUCKY YEAR and ALMABABY were sent for sampling.
