Recap by phillip woo

Good Luck Friend kept up a good gallop to hold off Smart Leader after assuming the lead at the top of the straight following a speed-chasing run on the fence. Smart Leader ran on well near the inside to finish a close second after saving ground behind midfield on the fence. He has been racing consistently well all season long at both tracks. Metro Warrior just held on for third after a prominent run on the fence. He's heading in the right direction after filling the frame in three of his four starts. Moeraki just got up in the final stride for fourth after over-racing a bit travelling third from the rear. Favourite Winning Brew finished well to just miss the placings after settling fourth last following a slow start. It was an encouraging effort up in grade. Keep You Warm stayed on well after failing to gain a run travelling midfield until switching out at the 200m. President's Choice was held up for a run and then copped a bad check 200m out travelling behind midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eleven: (819) - ENTRAPMENT HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1200Meters



HAPPY ALUMNI was withdrawn on 11.7.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (lame right fore) and was replaced by Standby Declared Starter TOTAL EXCESS (H N Wong).

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

WINNING BREW was slow to begin.

DAY DAY RICH began awkwardly and then became badly unbalanced after being bumped by GOOD LUCKY FRIEND which shifted in.

FIRST RESPONDER and TRUST ME bumped at the start.

MOERAKI shifted out on jumping and made contact with the hindquarters of EXCEPTIONAL NICE.

CRUISING lifted its front feet off the ground as the start was effected and bumped the inside of its gate, resulting in the horse beginning only fairly.

CRUISING was then ridden along in the early stages to obtain a forward position.

Approaching the 1100 Metres, PRESIDENT'S CHOICE momentarily raced tight inside KEEP YOU WARM which was then directed back out to relieve the tightening to PRESIDENT'S CHOICE.

Passing the 1000 Metres, DAY DAY RICH raced tight inside CRUISING (Apprentice C L Chau) which, after being directed in at an acute angle, then shifted in further after being straightened.

Apprentice Chau was warned against the practice of directing his mounts to shift in at such an acute angle.

Near the 750 Metres, WINNING BREW got its head up when travelling keenly and awkwardly placed behind PRESIDENT'S CHOICE.

Passing the 700 Metres, MOERAKI got its head up when awkwardly placed behind EXCEPTIONAL NICE.

After this, MOERAKI raced keenly and continued to race close to the heels of EXCEPTIONAL NICE.

WINNING BREW was held up for clear running in the early part of the Straight and near the 300 Metres was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CRUISING.

H T Mo (KEEP YOU WARM) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 250 Metres he directed his mount out when not clear of PRESIDENT'S CHOICE, causing that horse to be checked and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

H T Mo was suspended from riding in races for the first Happy Valley racemeeting to be conducted during the 2020/2021 racing season on Wednesday, 9 September 2020.

In addition, Jockey Mo was fined the sum of $15,000 in lieu of a period of suspension incorporating one racemeeting.

Near the 100 Metres, QUADRUPLE DOUBLE was steadied away from the heels of SMART LEADER (K Teetan) which shifted out.

K Teetan was reprimanded and advised to exercise more care in similar circumstances.

Apprentice C L Chau (CRUISING) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that approaching the 100 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of FIRST RESPONDER, resulting in that horse being unnecessarily crowded for room and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled.

In the circumstances, the Stewards believed the appropriate penalty was for Apprentice Chau to be fined the sum of $30,000 in lieu of a period of suspension incorporating two racemeetings.

Throughout the race, FIRST RESPONDER travelled wide and without cover.

When questioned, K Teetan stated that he was instructed to ride SMART LEADER in a position forward of midfield if possible, however, not to ride his mount too aggressively to do so.

He said in the early stages he was able to obtain a position inside PRESIDENT'S CHOICE and had hoped to be able to improve to be racing inside KEEP YOU WARM, however, in order to obtain this position, he would have had to ride SMART LEADER hard and therefore he elected to take a trailing position behind KEEP YOU WARM rather than attempt to improve to be racing inside that horse.

He said this resulted in SMART LEADER being slightly further back in the field than had been intended.

He said SMART LEADER then lost ground in the middle stages when KEEP YOU WARM was taken back by METRO WARRIOR as a result of METRO WARRIOR being steadied to obtain cover behind GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

A veterinary inspection of QUADRUPLE DOUBLE, PRESIDENT'S CHOICE and FIRST RESPONDER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.

A veterinary inspection of TOTAL EXCESS immediately following the race found that horse to be lame in its right front leg.

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

WINNING BREW, GOOD LUCK FRIEND and SMART LEADER were sent for sampling.
