Recap by phillip woo

Harmony Victory out-dashed Time To Celebrate over the final 150m for the win after a patient ride fourth from the rear. He was suited by the pace carrying a light weight but clearly has ability. Time To Celebrate was just denied after surging to the front 150m out from behind midfield. It was another honest effort. Ka Ying Star ended up a distant third after hitting the front 280m out sitting box-seat behind the swift pace of Raging Blitzkrieg and Mission Tycoon. Doctor Geoff stuck on all right for a Quartet spot after slotting in one off in fourth. He was able to back up a last start win at the Valley but is more effective over the 1,800m. Citron Spirit made a mild bid following a ground-saving run. He's had a terrific campaign and deserves a nice rest. Dinozzo ran on late without menacing from near the back. He needs some relief in the handicaps. Good Standing did not fire easing back to travel one off in midfield. He's likely on or near his mark.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (814) - THE SHA TIN MILE TROPHY (HANDICAP) - Class 1 - 1600Meters

WORLD RECORD and HARMONY VICTORY were steadied and shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Near the 650 Metres, WINNER'S WAY momentarily raced in restricted room inside HARMONY VICTORY.

After the 650 Metres, DINOZZO shifted out and bumped WORLD RECORD which was forced wider.

In the early part of the Straight, both KA YING STAR and DOCTOR GEOFF lay in.

Passing the 300 Metres, TIME TO CELEBRATE shifted in and made contact with GOOD STANDING.

Approaching the 100 Metres, CITRON SPIRIT raced tight inside the heels of DOCTOR GEOFF and approaching the 50 Metres was awkwardly placed outside the heels of KA YING STAR.

When questioned, M Chadwick (RAGING BLITZKRIEG) stated that it was anticipated that MISSION TYCOON and KA YING STAR would lead the race and therefore he was asked to obtain a trailing position behind those horses, preferably one horse off the rail.

He said RAGING BLITZKRIEG began well and he immediately steadied his mount to obtain a trailing position behind MISSION TYCOON which had been ridden along.

He said in the early stages KA YING STAR was racing inside MISSION TYCOON and it appeared as though he would be able to obtain the position as instructed.

He said when GOOD STANDING remained racing one horse off the rail to his inside, he was obliged to allow RAGING BLITZKRIEG to improve to cross that horse approaching the 1300 Metres.

He said when KA YING STAR was steadied to allow MISSION TYCOON to cross, this resulted in RAGING BLITZKRIEG being left racing without cover.

He said after the 1300 Metres RAGING BLITZKRIEG commenced to prove very difficult to settle and improved its position of its own accord to be racing outside MISSION TYCOON.

He said he attempted to steady RAGING BLITZKRIEG to remain racing to that horse's outside, however, RAGING BLITZKRIEG was travelling too strongly and he was not able to remain racing directly to the outside of MISSION TYCOON.

He added after the 1100 Metres he elected to allow RAGING BLITZKRIEG to cross MISSION TYCOON in the hope that the horse would then settle better in the lead rather than racing on terms with MISSION TYCOON.

He said however that after clearing MISSION TYCOON passing the 1000 Metres, RAGING BLITZKRIEG continued to prove very difficult to settle and would not relax and this resulted in the early and middle stages being run at a very fast tempo.

After viewing the videos, the Stewards accepted M Chadwick's explanation.

After the race, Z Purton stated that in light of GOOD STANDING's disappointing run, he formed the view that the horse may be better suited in races over a shorter distance than today's race.

He said although GOOD STANDING had been successful at 1600 Metres previously, the manner in which the horse did not find the line today indicated to him that races over a shorter distance as was the case of the horse's recent start when successful may suit GOOD STANDING better.

A veterinary inspection of GOOD STANDING 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, GOOD STANDING will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

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

GOOD STANDING, HARMONY VICTORY and TIME TO CELEBRATE were sent for sampling.
