Recap by phillip woo

Early favourite Aurora Pegasus had to share the win with the fast-finishing Shining Ace after surging to the lead 130m out following a one-off run fore of midfield for a third straight win despite a rise in class. Punted late Shining Ace closed furiously after a patient ride second from the rear from gate 12 to finish level for the win. He's racing very well this term. Winning Method found a couple too good after rolling to the front passing the 300m following a deep run without cover near the speed. Baby closed off reasonably well after a deep run behind midfield to fill the frame. It was a pleasing run carrying more weight. Hichinlove stayed on all right travelling worse than midfield on the fence. He needed the outing in his first start for his new trainer. Lone Eagle was yielding ground 150m out after stalking the speed one off the fence. Solomon's Bay gave up after clipping heels pulling out for a run mid-straight following a prominent run on the fence.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (188) - WARATAH HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

On arrival at the Start, H T Mo expressed concern regarding the action of ROMAN IMPERO.

After the necessary consultations, the Veterinary Officer said that, in his opinion, ROMAN IMPERO was suitable to race.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that ROMAN IMPERO had sustained a small laceration to the outside of the left hind fetlock.

HARRIER JET was checked on jumping when crowded for room between ROMAN IMPERO and FORZA ANGEL which shifted in after being bumped by WINNING METHOD (G van Niekerk).

In this incident, both FORZA ANGEL and ROMAN IMPERO were hampered.

G van Niekerk will be reprimanded and told that whilst the horse did jump in at the start, nonetheless he has an obligation to straighten his mount in order to ensure that they do not cause interference to other runners.

From the outside barrier, SHINING ACE was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, ROMAN IMPERO shifted out, resulting in FORZA ANGEL being crowded for room inside WINNING METHOD which became unbalanced when bumped on the hindquarters by FORZA ANGEL.

A short distance later, ROMAN IMPERO was steadied away from the heels of LONE EAGLE which was taken out marginally by INTERSTELLAR.

Approaching the 700 Metres, INTERSTELLAR momentarily raced in restricted room inside LONE EAGLE which was awkwardly placed inside the heels of HAPPY TIME.

Near the 650 Metres, INTERSTELLAR and AURORA PEGASUS raced tight.

Passing the 400 Metres, LONE EAGLE momentarily raced tight inside WINNING METHOD.

When being shifted to the outside of HAPPY TIME shortly after entering the Straight, SOLOMON'S BAY lay in and was reluctant to shift to the outside of that horse which resulted in SOLOMON'S BAY striking the heels of HAPPY TIME and stumbling near the 250 Metres and consequently losing ground.

Throughout the race, WINNING METHOD travelled wide and without cover.

The Stewards deferred the declaration of weighed-in to establish whether contact between SHINING ACE and AURORA PEGASUS, the dead heat winners for this race, should proceed to a formal protest/objection hearing.

Prior to the Stewards giving consideration to the matter, Mr C Fownes, the trainer of AURORA PEGASUS and A Badel, the rider of that horse, viewed the videos and elected not to enter a protest/objection.

It was established that SHINING ACE had come from some distance behind AURORA PEGASUS to improve to that horse's outside approaching the 50 Metres.

It was further found that passing the 50 Metres SHINING ACE shifted in and made minimal contact with AURORA PEGASUS.

The two horses then finished off the race without any further contact.

As the Stewards formed the view that contact between the two horses was slight and had no bearing on the outcome of the race, they elected not to proceed to a formal protest/objection hearing and declared weighed-in on the numbers semaphored by the Judge.

The Stewards will question K Teetan regarding the disappointing performance of HAPPY TIME which weakened in the Straight to finish at the rear of the field prior to the Sha Tin racemeeting on Saturday, 23 November 2019.

In the meantime, the performance of HAPPY TIME, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable.

Before being allowed to race again, HAPPY TIME will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

A veterinary inspection of HAPPY TIME immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of LONE EAGLE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

LONE EAGLE, SHINING ACE and AURORA PEGASUS were sent for sampling.

Addition to Racing Incidents Report of 17 November 2019 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 3 (172) When GRADE ONE was checked at the 200 Metres, BE READY became badly unbalanced after being bumped heavily on the hindquarters which resulted in its rider having to stop riding and re-balance BE READY.

2.

17 November 2019 Sha Tin Racemeeting - Race 8 (177) a.

The Stewards tonight interviewed Z Purton regarding the disappointing performance of REGENCY LEGEND.

Z Purton stated that after obtaining a good position near the 1000 Metres, REGENCY LEGEND travelled satisfactorily.

He said however that when the field quickened rounding the Home Turn REGENCY LEGEND immediately came under pressure and did not show the same turn of foot that it had in lesser class races previously.

He added although REGENCY LEGEND was momentarily tightened for room near the 150 Metres, the horse was already well beaten at this time and had no impact on its finishing position.

b.

N Callan stated that he was able to obtain a forward position on THANKS FOREVER in the early stages and the horse travelled well.

He said THANKS FOREVER initially quickened well rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight, however, near the 250 Metres came under pressure and then gave ground thereafter.
