Recap by phillip woo

Plunged late California Turbo wore down Red Desert 30m out following a deep run with cover in midfield for a first win at his 14th start. He was well rated after arriving off a mark of 80 and hope this is a sign of better things to come. Well-backed Red Desert found one just too good after hitting the front 100m out with a move down the outside following a patient ride deep near the back from a wide gate. Roman Impero kept on gamely for a placing after drawing level for the front 150m out following a wide and without cover run in a handy spot. Ballistic King grudgingly gave way over the final 100m after briefly hitting the front 250m out attacking the speed three deep from a wide gate. Right Honourable finished nicely near the outside to just finish out of the placings after making his run at the rear of the field from a tricky gate. Fearless Fire kept on evenly following a prominent run with cover. He doesn't have much room to head higher off his current mark.

Racing Incident Report

Race Four: (259) - VENUS HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

HOME MADE was crowded for room on jumping between TOTAL POWER and CALIFORNIA TURBO, both of which shifted ground.

BALLISTIC KING shifted out at the start and bumped RED DESERT.

After this, RED DESERT and LONDON LUCKYSTAR were shifted across behind runners from the outside barriers.

RIGHT HONOURABLE was also steadied in the early stages from a wide barrier.

Making the first turn after the 1100 Metres, HAPPY WARRIOR raced tight outside PRANCE DRAGON.

For some distance after the 1000 Metres, PRANCE DRAGON travelled keenly.

Making the turn near the 950 Metres, HOME MADE shifted out and bumped CALIFORNIA TURBO.

BALLISTIC KING travelled wide and without cover until passing the 700 Metres at which stage ROMAN IMPERO was left racing without cover.

Passing the 300 Metres, HARD PROMISE was awkwardly placed inside the heels of PRANCE DRAGON.

Also passing the 300 Metres, HAPPY WARRIOR was disappointed for running between HARD PROMISE and FEARLESS FIRE which shifted in away from the heels of BALLISTIC KING.

TOTAL POWER, which was following HAPPY WARRIOR, was shifted out away from the heels of that horse in consequence.

HAPPY WARRIOR was then held up for clear running behind FEARLESS FIRE near the 200 Metres and then after passing the 200 Metres was steadied away from the heels of FEARLESS FIRE after being disappointed for running to the outside of that horse and inside TOTAL POWER which was racing tight inside HOME MADE.

At this stage, FEARLESS FIRE was shifted to the outside of BALLISTIC KING after being disappointed for running between that horse and PRANCE DRAGON.

Over the concluding stages, FEARLESS FIRE lay out under pressure and proved difficult to ride.

K Teetan was spoken to regarding using the whip on CALIFORNIA TURBO forward of the saddle.

K Teetan was told that whilst he had only used the whip in this manner on a limited number of occasions, nonetheless he had previously been penalized for using the whip with more frequency forward of the saddle.

He was placed on notice that he must be cognizant of his use of the whip other than behind the saddle.

A veterinary inspection of PRANCE DRAGON immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

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

BALLISTIC KING, CALIFORNIA TURBO and RED DESERT were sent for sampling.
