Recap by phillip woo

Odds-on favourite Golden Sixty won going away passing the 200m after peeling into the open 280m out travelling third last worse than midfield to up his remarkable record to seven wins from eight starts. He relished the light weight with the step up in class but is destined for better things. Fat Turtle came on nicely after making his run one off in midfield to finish a clear-cut second. He continues to raise his game despite a rise in class and distance. Champion's Way surged late down the outside to fill a placing. It was a glimpse of his better form after disappointing in his opening two starts this term. Encouraging gave way 100m out after assuming the lead from Ka Ying Star 300m out in a pace-pressing role. Ka Ying Star gradually faded after holding the fence on the lead. He's likely better suited at a mile and might not have much upside off his current mark. Season's Bloom never ran on but did cop a check back to last at the 700m by the eventual winner.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (300) - THE CHINESE CLUB CHALLENGE CUP (HANDICAP) - Class G3 - 1400Meters

SEASONS BLOOM began only fairly.

Shortly after the start, GOLDEN SIXTY was bumped by GOOD STANDING which was taken in by ENCOURAGING.

From the outside barrier, CHAMPION'S WAY was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

A Badel (FAT TURTLE) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 1100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of GOLDEN SIXTY, resulting in that horse being taken in and crowding the room of SEASONS BLOOM for some distance which resulted in SEASONS BLOOM having to be checked after the 1000 Metres.

A Badel was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Sunday, 19 January 2020 and to expire on Thursday, 23 January 2020 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into account Jockey Badel's good race riding record.

Passing the 500 Metres, CHAMPION'S WAY raced tight outside GOLDEN SIXTY which improved to the outside of FAT TURTLE.

A veterinary inspection of SEASONS BLOOM, KA YING STAR and NORTHERN SUPERSTAR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

GOLDEN SIXTY and FAT TURTLE were sent for sampling.
