Recap by phillip woo

Silver Fig came with a bold move down the outside from the rear of the field to snatch victory in the shadows of the post. Utopia Life did everything right but get the win leading quickly from gate seven. He continues to race very well on this surface this season. Good For You came on nicely from behind midfield to finish a clear-cut third. It was a terrific effort in his dirt debut after backing up quickly from a midweek win at the Valley. Explosive Witness ran on well for fourth after straightening widest out following a threedeep run with cover behind midfield from a tricky gate in his dirt debut. Elite Patch was finding the line late from the rear of the field to pick up a cheque. Favourite Just Not Listening came up one-paced over the final 150m after a wide and without cover run better than midfield. He was under the odds after failing to win following dream runs.

Racing Incident Report

Race Ten: (630) - GAME SPIRIT HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters

MOST BEAUTIFUL stumbled badly at the start, resulting in its rider becoming unbalanced.

FLYING SWORD and ZERO HEDGE bumped at the start.

HEART CONQUERED shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in JUST NOT LISTENING becoming badly unbalanced when crowded onto COBY OPPA which also became unbalanced.

After this, despite being ridden along, JUST NOT LISTENING failed to muster speed and then after the 600 Metres was left racing wide and without cover.

From the outside barrier, SILVER FIG was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover.

After travelling a short distance, ZERO HEDGE raced tight between EXPLOSIVE WITNESS which shifted in away from UTOPIA LIFE and FLYING SWORD which became unbalanced after being bumped by ZERO HEDGE.

When being steadied in an attempt to obtain cover passing the 1000 Metres, HEART CONQUERED proved difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions.

A veterinary inspection of HEART CONQUERED immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

The performance of HEART CONQUERED, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable.

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

K Teetan (COBY OPPA) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 700 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of HEART CONQUERED, resulting in that horse being taken in across the rightful running of MOST BEAUTIFUL which was checked.

K Teetan was suspended from riding in races for the racemeeting to be conducted at Happy Valley on Wednesday, 13 May 2020.

As such, is eligible to resume race riding on Thursday, 14 May 2020.

In addition, K Teetan was fined $60,000.

Near the 550 Metres, MOST BEAUTIFUL commenced to travel keenly and was checked away from the heels of HEART CONQUERED.

Near the 250 Metres, MOST BEAUTIFUL was momentarily steadied away from the heels of ZERO HEDGE which was racing tight inside EXPLOSIVE WITNESS.

Near the 150 Metres, FLYING SWORD was bumped by ELITE PATCH which shifted out before being corrected.

A short distance after this, FLYING SWORD was checked away from the heels of COBY OPPA which was giving ground, shifted out and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of JUST NOT LISTENING.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on GRATWICK at the request of Trainer T P Yung.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of JUST NOT LISTENING and FLYING SWORD immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

SILVER FIG and UTOPIA LIFE were sent for sampling.
