Recap by phillip woo

Le Terroir established a good lead entering the straight after shaking off a brief challenge 950 out by the favourite Reliable Team kept up a strong gallop to score up in grade off a light weight. Endearing came through near the inside to finish a distant second following a prominent run on the fence. Punted late Shining Ace just held onto a placing following a one-out, one-back run. It was an honest effort at his second run in this grade and will certainly come on for this run. Joyful Union finished well to just miss a placing after settling behind midfield on the fence following a sluggish start from a wide gate. Reliable Team didn't have much left over the final 100m after being ridden along to park outside the leader at the 950m from a wide gate. He's clearly talented but may have risen too quickly after winning his opening two starts. Mr Picasso made some ground down the outside after a patient ride fourth from the back.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (57) - YIP FAT HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

MOST BEAUTIFUL began awkwardly and lost ground.

From wide barriers, MR PICASSO, HARRIER JET, FANTASTIC FEELING and JOYFUL UNION were all steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

Near the 1150 Metres, FAIRY TWINS was momentarily crowded for room between SHINING ACE and ENDEARING which shifted out.

Passing the 1100 Metres, SHINING GEM shifted out and bumped MR PICASSO.

After the 1000 Metres, SHINING GEM was left racing wide and without cover.

Passing the 750 Metres, BEST ALLIANCE became unbalanced in its action.

Rounding the Home Turn, SHINING GEM raced tight outside BEST ALLIANCE which shifted out.

In the early part of the Straight, JOYFUL UNION lay in under pressure.

Near the 50 Metres, SHINING ACE shifted in under pressure, resulting in its rider having to stop riding and straighten SHINING ACE.

When questioned regarding the performance of RELIABLE TEAM, Z Purton stated that whilst he had to make use of the horse in the early stages to cross runners to his inside and obtain a forward position, he did not believe that he had to make an excessive amount of use of the horse to cross to race outside the lead after the 900 Metres.

He said RELIABLE TEAM did not travel as fluently tonight as it had in the past and came under pressure after the 500 Metres.

He said when RELIABLE TEAM did not respond to his riding, he was obliged to ride the horse vigorously from the 400 Metres, however, RELIABLE TEAM, which was inclined to lay in rounding the Home Turn, did not quicken and was disappointing as it finished off the race only fairly.

He added based on the manner in which RELIABLE TEAM raced tonight, he suggested to connections that they may wish to step the horse up in distance in its future starts to allow it to travel more comfortably in the early and middle stages.

A veterinary inspection of RELIABLE TEAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection BEST ALLIANCE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

BRILLIANT TEAM, LE TERROIR and ENDEARING were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

21 September 2019 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 8 (46) The Stewards tonight questioned H T Mo regarding his riding of MAGNIFICENT.

H T Mo stated that he was instructed to lead on MAGNIFICENT in accordance with the horse's usual racing pattern at the distance.

He said he had to ride his mount along in the early stages to cross BETHANY which he was able to do after the 1300 Metres.

He said after reaching the lead, he then attempted to steady the tempo of the race, however, he was not aware that the race was being run at as fast a tempo as it was.

He said he was aware that BEAUTY DAY was racing to his outside and as that horse continued to maintain its position outside and slightly behind MAGNIFICENT, he did not believe that the race was being run at a particularly quick tempo.

H T Mo was reminded that the Stewards had had cause to speak to him on two occasions during the most recent racing season regarding the pace he set on horses in races.

Jockey Mo was placed on notice that he must ensure that he rides his mounts such that they can finish off the race as best as they are able.

He was further advised that should he come to the attention of the Stewards in the future regarding this matter, further action may be taken.
