An objection was lodged by Jockey R Rueven, the rider of BEIJING STAR, placed second, against SUPER BB (AK Lim) being declared the winner, on the grounds of alleged interference at about the 125M. After considering the evidence, the Racing Stewards overruled the objection and the result stood.

RAINBOW FISH (App CK Khaw) raced wide in the middle stages.

SUPER BB drifted out when Jockey AK Lim continued to use his whip over the 200M, carrying BEIJING STAR outwards over the final strides. On inquiry, Jockey AK Lim pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that he continued to ride SUPER BB aggressively with the whip and failed to straighten that gelding when it shifted over the concluding 150M.

In assessing a penalty, the Stewards considered this incident at the lower level of carelessness as it did not include any significant interference to any other runner, and imposed a suspension of one (1) day with effect from 19 October 2020 and to expire on 24 October 2020, both dates inclusive.

Further, he stated that on returning to stables, UPTOWN GIRL was ascertained to have a mild bow to its fore tendon which had been confirmed by the Veterinary Surgeon.

The Stewards, on 9 October 2020 at the Selangor Turf Club, inquired into Jockey SU Lim’s riding of LIM’S PERSHING.  Evidence was taken from Jockey SU Lim and Trainer S Dunderdale, the rider and trainer of LIM’S PERSHING respectively.

After considering the evidence, Jockey SU Lim was charged under MRA Rule 44 (10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards. The particulars of the charge were that: 

  1. He failed to ride LIM’S PERSHING with any vigour after straightening (long course) until the 375M.

  2. At approximately the 275M, he stopped riding and stood up on the gelding for approximately six (6) or seven (7) strides.

Jockey SU Lim pleaded not guilty to the charge and asked that the matter be adjourned to allow for him to call further veterinary evidence. The inquiry was adjourned to a later date.


RACE 9 (R789) CLASS 5 (A) – 1200M (SHORT COURSE), SATURDAY, 3 OCTOBER 2020, SELANGOR TURF CLUB OCTOBER MEETING 2020 

The Stewards, on 9 October 2020 at the Selangor Turf Club, inquired into Jockey J Low’s riding of WASHINGTON and the manner in which he had ridden the gelding out in the straight.  Evidence was taken from Jockey J Low and Trainer S Dunderdale, the rider and trainer of WASHINGTON respectively. 

Trainer S Dunderdale advised the Stewards that WASHINGTON always travelled very strongly, however when pushed, tended not to respond and improved only in a moderate fashion. He had thus instructed Jockey J Low to ride WASHINGTON in a forward position and to ensure that he saved the gelding for a late run. 

Jockey J Low agreed with the instructions and advised that WASHINGTON travelled very strongly after straightening and he had ridden quietly, holding the gelding together in hope of achieving the desired result. He had then ridden out to the post to his ability but WASHINGTON had raced only moderately compared to how it was travelling on straightening. 

In accepting this evidence, the Stewards advised Trainer S Dunderdale that he should inform the Stewards of any aspect of his horses racing which may have an effect on their performances, and opportunity given that he also trained the horse which led in the race, D’ GREAT STRIKE (App L De Souza). 

Jockey J Low was reminded of his obligations to ride in a positive and competitive manner at all times.

The Stewards, on 9 October 2020 at the Selangor Turf Club, inquired into the reason for ICHIKA BACHIKA losing considerable ground at the start.  Evidence was taken from Jockey J Low and Trainer S Dunderdale, the rider and trainer of ICHIKA BACHIKA respectively. 

After considering the evidence, Jockey J Low was found guilty of a charge under MRA Rule 44(10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards in that ICHIKA BACHIKA was not given a chance to jump properly from the start. The Stewards were not persuaded that SOUTHERN DRAGON (S Ruzaini) from Stall 2 had crossed ICHIKA BACHIKA so as to impede the gelding in any way.

In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration that Jockey J Low had previously been suspended twice under MRA Rule 44(10) but considered this incident at the lower range of culpability. Jockey J Low was suspended from riding in races for a period of six (6) weeks with effect from 12 October 2020 and to expire on 22 November 2020, both dates inclusive.
