Recap by phillip woo

Very Rich Man took the sit behind the runaway leader Nice Fandango, surged to the lead 150m out and kept on gamely for the win. He had put the writing on the wall last month and is always a chance in this grade over this course. Iron Boy finished after a patient ride third from the rear to fill the Quinella spot. Little Thunder peaked on his run 100m out after looming a winning chance 200m tracking the speed in third from a wide gate. Favourite All Wongchoy ran on steadily to just miss a placing after settling one-off fore of midfield in the run. The rise in weight second-up went against him but he may be looking for a longer trip. Golden Glory made some ground without menacing following a midfield run. Supreme Plus was hampered late when trying to rallying along the inside from just worse than midfield. Veteran Lucky Guy cost him any chance after breaking poorly. Oriental Elite was withdrawn after getting red-flagged at the gate.

Racing Incident Report

Race Five: (119) - WINDICATOR HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1200Meters

On arrival at the Start, K Teetan expressed concern regarding the action of ORIENTAL ELITE.

A veterinary inspection of ORIENTAL ELITE found that horse to be lame in the left front leg and as such was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, ORIENTAL ELITE was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, ORIENTAL ELITE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

Also on arrival at the Start, it was noted that LITTLE THUNDER had lost its left front plate.

After this plate was refitted, LITTLE THUNDER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was suitable to race.

LUCKY GUY became fractious as the start was effected and lifted its front feet off the ground, resulting in the horse losing a considerable amount of ground.

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

DR LUCKY STAR began only fairly and was then bumped by GOLDEN GLORY which shifted out.

From a wide barrier, IRON BOY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

H T Mo (VERY RICH MAN) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 1000 Metres he failed to make sufficient endeavours to prevent his mount from shifting in when not clear of ALL WONGCHOY, causing that horse to be crowded for room and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled and KANBEKI MOLLY, which was racing inside ALL WONGCHOY, to be hampered.

When ALL WONGCHOY lost its position, GOLDEN GLORY, which was following, got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of that horse.

H T Mo was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 6 November 2019 and to expire on Sunday, 10 November 2019 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, H T Mo was fined $10,000.

After the 900 Metres, SUNNY DRAGON commenced to travel keenly.

Approaching the 600 Metres, GOLDEN GLORY was awkwardly placed behind ALL WONGCHOY.

After the 600 Metres, SUNNY DRAGON got its head up on a number of occasions when continuing to prove difficult to settle and racing close to the heels of GOLDEN GLORY.

Making the turn near the 550 Metres, LUCKY GUY got its head up when awkwardly placed behind IRON BOY.

Near the 550 Metres, KANBEKI MOLLY was momentarily crowded for room inside LITTLE THUNDER which got its head on the side and lay in.

Approaching and passing the 50 Metres, SUPREME PLUS became unbalanced when crowded for room inside KANBEKI MOLLY which, after improving into tight running inside NICE FANDANGO, was taken in by that horse as NICE FANDANGO shifted ground marginally when weakening.

Because of this, SUPREME PLUS was not able to be ridden out over the concluding stages.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on ALL WONGCHOY at the request of Trainer C S Shum.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea.

Before being allowed to race again, ALL WONGCHOY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of LUCKY GUY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

ALL WONGCHOY, VERY RICH MAN and IRON BOY were sent for sampling.
