Recap by phillip woo

Punted late Good For You dashed nicely to win going away 80m out following a midfield run on the fence. He's had a good season and did produce a decent run last start with a return to his favourite Valley 1,200m. Beauty Spark closed well travelling one off in midfield to finish second without menacing the winner. It was another good effort following a win last time out. Little Bird was no match for the top pair after surging to the lead 200m out stalking the pace from a tricky gate 900m out. Favourite Californiadeepshot kept plugging away without menacing after a handy run without cover from a wide gate. Jumbo Happiness ran on steadily without ever looking a chance from behind midfield. He's on his mark after a win two starts back. What A Legend was badly held up for a run from the 250m following a box-seat run. He should have finished closer. Shouson failed to recover after getting squeezed out of a run at the 200m following a handy run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Nine: (620) - CAUSEWAY BAY HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

SUPER COMMANDER began awkwardly and then lost ground when crowded for room on jumping between GOOD FOR YOU which shifted out and JUMBO HAPPINESS which was taken in by BEAUTY SPARK.

A short distance later, JUMBO HAPPINESS also lost ground when crowded for room between GOOD FOR YOU which continued to shift out and BEAUTY SPARK which was unbalanced as a result of bumping with JUMBO HAPPINESS on a number of occasions.

URBAN DANCER shifted out at the start and bumped the hindquarters of VERY RICH MAN.

VICTORY POWER began awkwardly and then from the outside barrier was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

From a wide barrier, FANTASTIC FEELING was also steadied in the early stages to obtain cover.

Passing the 900 Metres, JUMBO HAPPINESS and URBAN DANCER bumped.

After the 800 Metres, CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT was left racing wide and without cover.

Near the 200 Metres, SHOUSON (Z Purton) was momentarily crowded for room between CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT which shifted in and WHAT A LEGEND which attempted to shift out away from the heels of LITTLE BIRD after being badly held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight.

After this, WHAT A LEGEND continued to have difficulty obtaining clear running and consequently was not able to be fully tested.

After the race, Z Purton reported that although his mount was crowded for room at this stage, it was travelling only fairly and over the concluding stages did not feel comfortable in its action.

He said he was not able to offer any valid reason for the horse's failure to finish off the race after it enjoyed a good run behind the speed.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of SUPER COMMANDER, URBAN DANCER and VICTORY POWER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT, GOOD FOR YOU and BEAUTY SPARK were sent for sampling.


GENERAL: 1.

The following horse was replated in the holding stalls:- Race 2: MERIDIAN TALENT (left hind) 2.

After the running of Race 2, the track classification was officially changed from "Good??to "Good to Firm?? This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective.

As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 2 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm?? 3.

Adjourned Inquiry - 22 April 2020 Happy Valley Racemeeting - Race 6 (598) The Stewards tonight concluded an inquiry into the reason for H N Wong being dislodged from GALAXY EMPEROR near the 400 Metres.

Evidence was tonight taken from H N Wong with further evidence being taken from Apprentice C Wong (EVER STRONG), C Schofield (UNIVERSAL GO GO) and H W Lai (SNOW AIRJET).

It was found that as GALAXY EMPEROR was being directed to the outside of the heels of EVER STRONG passing the 400 Metres, EVER STRONG was eased by its rider when briefly tightened for room inside UNIVERSAL GO GO which was racing inside SNOW AIRJET.

When EVER STRONG was eased, GALAXY EMPEROR clipped the heels of that horse and blundered, resulting in H N Wong being dislodged.

Although EVER STRONG was briefly tightened for room passing the 400 Metres, on the evidence before the Stewards, it was not able to be established whether this was as a result of a shift in from UNIVERSAL GO GO or SNOW AIRJET.

In any event, the Stewards were satisfied that any shift from either of those horses was minimal and would not be such that would result in the rider being deemed to have ridden carelessly.

Accordingly, no further action was taken other than both C Schofield and H W Lai were advised to ensure that they leave comfortable racing room for runners on their inside at all times.
