Recap by phillip woo

Ping Hai Galaxy took the short route home, taking control 80m out after his lovely run in the box seat to land a betting move. He was able to bounce back after his hard run first up last month and become a four-time winner from 25 starts. Ridden for luck after his latest slow start, Seizing The Moment finished nicely to grab second despite having to switch off heels near the 200m. It was a good effort resuming over an inadequate trip. Heroic Master ran on well to finish a close third after his wide trip towards the rear of the compact field. It was a good effort on debut, and he has room to improve off his mark of 64. Super Axiom gave way grudgingly after dictating the run from a middle draw. He is likely on or near his mark. Favourite Equaletta Blitz was doing his best work late down the outside after making his run from wide and towards the rear. His big weight did not help, but he improves with racing usually. Party Warrior never landed a blow after his one-out, one-back run. It was a disappointing effort. Awesome Treasure faded tamely after prompting the pace from his tricky gate. He is a better prospect in Class Four.

Racing Incident Report

Race One: (65) - HEUNG YIP HANDICAP - Class 3 - 1000Meters

SEIZING THE MOMENT began only fairly.

From a wide barrier, EQUALETTA BLITZ was steadied and shifted across behind runners to obtain cover in the early stages.

From the outside barrier, HEROIC MASTER was steadied shortly after the start, then lay out in the early and middle stages and travelled wide and without cover for the majority of the race.

HEROIC MASTER continued to lay out rounding the Home Turn.

H N Wong (SUPER AXIOM) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that near the 200 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in whilst riding it along, thereby tightening the running of PING HAI GALAXY which in turn was taken in across the rightful running of SEIZING THE MOMENT which was checked.

H N Wong was suspended from riding in races for a period to commence on Wednesday, 19 October 2022 and to expire on Monday, 24 October 2022 on which day he may resume race riding (2 Hong Kong racedays).

When questioned regarding the performance of PING HAI GALAXY, the winner of tonight's race, compared to its first up run, Trainer J Size stated that at its first up run the horse was able to obtain a forward position in the early stages without having to be ridden along, however, it took PING HAI GALAXY some time to be able to clear a number of runners to its inside and this resulted in the horse racing wide until after entering the Back Straight.

He said because of this, in his opinion, PING HAI GALAXY was not able to travel comfortably in the middle stages and then did not finish the race off.

He said having drawn barrier 1 tonight, PING HAI GALAXY was able to race on the rail in the early and middle stages behind the leader and he was of the opinion that this greatly benefited PING HAI GALAXY in relaxing and then being able to close the race off strongly.

A veterinary inspection of EQUALETTA BLITZ immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
