Selangor Turf Club, the premier horse racing centre in Malaysia ended the season last Sunday with a marathon card of 13 races.
Right from the start of the season, there is always an air of excitement, challenges, thrills and spills in horse racing at this course in Sungei Besi.
Last Sunday, as the curtains drew close at Selangor Turf Club, several horses should be noted for the next season which will be even more challenging.

Trainer Tan Soo Beng’s Ateej should develop into a top class material after an impressive fourth win in a row in Race 7. The four-year-old by Equal Stripes with Jockey Oscar Chavez on board was in close attendance with the early leaders till the heads turn for home and clinched the lead at the final 300m from home to beat Lim’s Casino in a convincing manner.
Trainer Richard Lines’s Confound would be even better over a longer trip judging from the win over 1400m in Race 8. The five-year-old by Tavistock with regular rider Chavez astride came with a beautiful run at the final run home to coast home beating Premium Rush. Take note of Premium Rush which finished a commendable second. The four-year-old by Remind with Jockey Aucharuz came home very fast in the run home but failed to catch the winner.
Rum And Raisins is on the upgrade after a very close win in Race 10. The eight-year-old by Manner Hill with Jockey Jackson Low astride threw the challenge in the run home with Marea Negero and won narrowly.
