Recap by phillip woo

Russian Emperor quickened nicely near the inside to take control passing the 300m after a patient ride one from the rear. It was his first win in Hong Kong but he had been knocking on the door in his past two starts and seemed to relish the wet ground. Savvy Nine stayed on well to finish a clear-cut second after a prominent run along the fence. It was a huge run despite performing off an equal-rating low at level weights. Firming to start at very short odds, Golden Sixty came from last to finish a non-threatening third. He didn't seem to handle the wet going. Tourbillon Diamond ran on steadily to fill the frame after a rails run behind midfield. It was another honest performance. More Than This ran on without threatening after getting shuffled to have only a few behind him turning the final bend. He doesn't quite get the trip. Zebrowski didn't have much left in the tank 150m out after working hard to clear Reliable Team for the lead 1,400m out. He didn't get the best of runs and was up in grade at level weights. Butterfield ran on without menacing from towards the rear. He's not good enough at this level. Sky Darci went amiss near the 800m after a one-off run better than midfield.

Racing Incident Report

Race Eight: (441) - THE CITI HONG KONG GOLD CUP - Class G1 - 2000Meters

COLUMBUS COUNTY was withdrawn on 19.2.22 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (swollen neck).

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

TOURBILLON DIAMOND was crowded for room on jumping between PANFIELD and ZEBROWSKI which shifted out.

BUTTERFIELD shifted out at the start and bumped RUSSIAN EMPEROR.

From the outside barriers, RUSSIAN EMPEROR and GOLDEN SIXTY were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.

After travelling a short distance, SAVVY NINE was awkwardly placed outside the heels of MORE THAN THIS.

At the 850 Metres, SKY DARCI went amiss and was retired from the race.

MORE THAN THIS, which was following SKY DARCI, shifted in away from the heels of that horse in consequence and BUTTERFIELD, which was following MORE THAN THIS, shifted out away from the heels of that horse, resulting in GOLDEN SIXTY being taken wider.

After the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that SKY DARCI had sustained an injury to the left hind fetlock.

At the entrance to the Straight, PANFIELD shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of TOURBILLON DIAMOND.

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

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

A veterinary inspection of PANFIELD immediately following the race found that horse to be a "roarer??which had previously been reported.

GOLDEN SIXTY, RUSSIAN EMPEROR and SAVVY NINE were sent for sampling.

Samples were also taken from SKY DARCI.
