Recap by phillip woo

Tourbillion Diamond just held on by a bob of the heads over Ka Ying Star after hitting the front 100m following a one-out, one-back run. He had been racing well and the 19- pound swing in the weights was the difference in the end. Ka Ying Star made it close on the wire stalking the leader Reliable Team one off the fence. It was a better effort stepping up to the 1,800m. Reliable Team found a couple just too good after getting his own way in front. He can produce an odd good run now and then over this trip. Champion's Way got going late from the rear to fill the frame without menacing the top three. It was a good effort in a race run to suit those up front. Favourite Glorious Dragon was caught up in all sorts of traffic along the inside following a rails run worse than midfield. He had an excuse. Columbus County peaked on his move from towards the rear 150m out. He needs a longer trip. Butterfield came up one-paced when asked for an effort travelling one-off in midfield. He didn't get a race run to suit. Old-timer Southern Legend was always strung up in traffic after a box-seat run.

Racing Incident Report

Race Seven: (155) - THE SA SA LADIES' PURSE (HANDICAP) - Class G3 - 1800Meters

KA YING STAR shifted out at the start, resulting in BUTTERFIELD shifting out away from that horse, causing COLUMBUS COUNTY and CHAMPION'S WAY to be hampered.

After this, COLUMBUS COUNTY and CHAMPION'S WAY were steadied to obtain cover.

When being steadied approaching the 1700 Metres to obtain cover, BUTTERFIELD was awkwardly placed outside the heels of KA YING STAR.

Approaching the 500 Metres, BUTTERFIELD shifted out away from TOURBILLON DIAMOND which also shifted out when racing close to the heels of KA YING STAR.

BUTTERFIELD then bumped COLUMBUS COUNTY, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

BUTTERFIELD was again unbalanced when crowded for room rounding the Home Turn between TOURBILLON DIAMOND which shifted out and COLUMBUS COUNTY which lay in when unbalanced as a result of the initial contact from BUTTERFIELD.

Passing the 400 Metres, BUTTERFIELD raced tight inside COLUMBUS COUNTY which got its head on the side and lay in.

This resulted in BUTTERFIELD being awkwardly placed outside the heels of TOURBILLON DIAMOND after the 400 Metres as that horse shifted out away from KA YING STAR.

BUTTERFIELD then continued to race in restricted room between COLUMBUS COUNTY and CHAMPION'S WAY approaching and passing the 300 Metres and near the 250 Metres became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by CHAMPION'S WAY.

For some distance after the 350 Metres, SOUTHERN LEGEND and GLORIOUS DRAGON raced tight as both horses attempted to improve between RELIABLE TEAM and KA YING STAR where there was insufficient room.

GLORIOUS DRAGON was then badly held up for clear running from passing the 300 Metres until passing the 100 Metres.

Then after the 100 Metres, GLORIOUS DRAGON attempted to improve into tight running which presented between RELIABLE TEAM and KA YING STAR which shifted out marginally.

As GLORIOUS DRAGON was attempting to improve inside KA YING STAR (M Chadwick), it shifted in and away from TOURBILLON DIAMOND which itself shifted in under pressure.

This resulted in GLORIOUS DRAGON being checked when unable to continue to improve between KA YING STAR and RELIABLE TEAM.

In this incident, RELIABLE TEAM became unbalanced after being bumped on the hindquarters by GLORIOUS DRAGON.

M Chadwick was advised that the Stewards were of the opinion that the run which was available to GLORIOUS DRAGON had only presented itself for a short amount of time and that his shift inwards was not significant, however, he was told to ensure that he reacts as quickly as possible to his horses shifting ground so as to prevent crowding to other runners.

K Teetan (CHAMPION'S WAY) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 100 Metres he directed his mount out when not clear of BUTTERFIELD, resulting in that horse being hampered and losing the running to which it was rightfully entitled and COLUMBUS COUNTY, which was racing to the outside of BUTTERFIELD, also being inconvenienced.

K Teetan was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Sunday, 28 November 2021 and to expire on Thursday, 2 December 2021 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

In addition, Jockey Teetan was fined $30,000.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that TOURBILLON DIAMOND had sustained a laceration to its left hind heel bulb.

A veterinary inspection of SOUTHERN LEGEND and COLUMBUS COUNTY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
