Recap by phillip woo

Dragon General came on nicely travelling worse than midfield to mow down Winning Vangogh in deep stretch for a fourth career win. He'll be in a Class Two when he next steps out but does go well on both surfaces which gives him options. Winning Vangogh was nicely rated on the lead and nearly held on in his first outing on the surface. He followed a positive run on opening day on the turf and does appear to be heading in the right direction now. Dragon Master finished well after travelling fourth from the rear to make it close for the quinella spot. He went well fresh yet again but may need a return to Class Three to win again. Happy Surveys finished nicely along the inside to spice up the quartet following a patient ride at the tail of the field. He is well rated on the back of a Valley win last season. Pakistan Baby got going when the race was all but over. He needed the run. Star Of Yan Oi was badly unbalanced when trying to go through a gap 280m out.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (28) - DONGGUAN HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

After being loaded, HARBOUR ALERT became fractious and got its head down.

Before being allowed to race again, HARBOUR ALERT will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test.

WONDERFUL JOURNEY was slow to begin.

STAR OF YAN OI began only fairly.

WINNING VANGOGH shifted out at the start and hampered HAPPY SURVEYS.

After the 800 Metres, PAKISTAN BABY commenced to travel keenly and was checked away from the heels of DRAGON MASTER.

Then making the turn after the 700 Metres, PAKISTAN BABY was again checked away from the heels of DRAGON MASTER.

Making the turn after the 700 Metres, WONDERFUL JOURNEY was awkwardly placed outside the heels of DRAGON MASTER and then was taken wider near the 650 Metres when DRAGON MASTER shifted out.

Also making the turn after the 700 Metres, HARBOUR ALERT commenced to prove difficult to settle and was checked away from the heels of WINNING VANGOGH.

ALL BEST FRIENDS travelled wide and without cover until near the 600 Metres.

Passing the 500 Metres, STAR OF YAN OI attempted to shift out from behind JOYFUL MOMENTS and bumped KING MORTAR (K Teetan).

After this, STAR OF YAN OI was awkwardly placed close to the heels of JOYFUL MOMENTS.

In this incident, K Teetan's right elbow briefly extended away from his body and made contact with the head of STAR OF YAN OI.

In the circumstances, the Stewards did not believe that the contact between Jockey Teetan's elbow and STAR OF YAN OI was such that a charge of improper riding should be issued, however, K Teetan was severely reprimanded and warned against allowing any part of his body making contact with another horse or rider during a race.

S Clipperton (ARIZONA BLIZZARD) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 300 Metres he permitted his mount to shift out when not clear of STAR OF YAN OI, causing that horse to be hampered and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled outside ARIZONA BLIZZARD and to the inside of ALL BEST FRIENDS.

S Clipperton was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 13 September 2017 and to expire on Sunday, 17 September 2017 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into account S Clipperton's good race riding record.

After the race, K C Leung was unable to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of JOYFUL MOMENTS.

He said the horse travelled reasonably well with cover, however, gave only a brief response in the early part of the Straight before weakening.

He added however that, in his view, JOYFUL MOMENTS would take improvement out of today's race.

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

A veterinary inspection of STAR OF YAN OI immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of KING MORTAR immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, KING MORTAR will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

PAKISTAN BABY, DRAGON GENERAL and WINNING VANGOGH were sent for sampling.
