RACE 2 (R779) CLASS 5 (A)  – 1400M                               

Emergency acceptors, BM POWER and AMISTAD were both withdrawn due to a capacity field. 

MODRIC, FIRST SUCCESS, CHINA CAPTAIN, SUNNY FIGHTER, MR ROCKWELL and QUASAR which were up 28kgs, 21kgs, 16kgs, 20kgs, 19kgs and 37kgs in body weight respectively since their  last run, were checked by the Club Veterinary Surgeon prior to the race and were all passed fit to start. 

The Stewards permitted Jockey K Eirwan to replace Jockey F Yap as the rider of  HALLELUJAH when the latter was stood down by the Club Medical Officer.

MODRIC (App S Rosmizan) was pulling hard and was difficult to settle in the early stages.

A post-race veterinary examination of QUASAR (App P Haris) revealed no obvious abnormality.

An Inquiry was opened into the running and handling of CALVADOS in this race.   After taking evidence from Jockey Z Khairil and Trainer S Hamilton, the rider and trainer of CALVADOS respectively and reviewing the films, Jockey Z Khairil pleaded guilty to a charge under MRA Rule 44(8) as read with 44(8)(a) in that he failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures to ensure that CALVADOS was given full opportunity of winning or of obtaining the best possible placing. 

The particulars of the charge were:- 

  • That having jumped on terms from barrier 1 at the 1400M on CALVADOS,  he continually restrained his mount in the back straight; 
  • That at the 600M mark, he shifted out approximately 4 horses’ width when there was a clear run on the inside next to the rail behind AWATERE (KC Wong) thereby covering unnecessary ground.

When deciding on penalty, the Stewards took into consideration the facts of this case, Jockey Z Khairil’s guilty plea, his riding record and points of mitigation.  Jockey Z Khairil was disqualified for a period of one (1) year with  effect from Sunday, 17th October 2021 and to expire on Sunday, 16th October 2022,  both days inclusive.  He was advised of his Right of Appeal (6.50pm).

RACE 1 (R436) CLASS 4(A) – 1700M             

MYSTICAL STAR (SS Vanan) was slow to begin.

ARIF (App AR Aiman) laid out racing to the 350M and brushed MYSTICAL STAR.

GUNFORHIRE (S Saddam) commenced to shift out from the 300M, resulting in ARIF changing course inwards for clear running.

Over the final stages of the race, ARIF laid out, resulting in GUNFORHIRE taking MYSTICAL STAR wider on the track.  Jockey SS Saddam was shown the vision of the incident and advised to exercise greater care in similar circumstances. 

Prior to the ‘All Clear’ being given, an objection was lodged by Jockey SS Vanan,  the rider of MYSTICAL STAR, placed second against ARIF (App AR Aiman), being declared the winner, on the grounds of alleged interference from the 350M. After considering the evidence and viewing the video, the Racing Stewards were of the opinion that the alleged interference had not affected the result of the race. The objection was overruled and the result stood.

SLTC GENERAL REPORT

RACE 8 (R372) CLASS 4 (A) – 1200M (SHORT COURSE) & RACE 9 (R373) SUPREME B – 1400M (LONG COURSE), SUNDAY, 25 APRIL 2021, SELANGOR TURF CLUB APRIL MEETING 2021

The Stewards concluded their inquiries into the reasons for: STRAP MARKS in Race 8 and DESIRE SKY in Race 9 being late withdrawals on Sunday, 25 April 2021.

Trainer R Lines advised that his stable staff numbers and composition had been severely curtailed and changed due to a considerable number of personnel being isolated because of Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). He had taken it upon himself not to attend the races.

With his non-attendance and reduced staff, this had resulted in a lack of personnel who would normally check all race day preparation details. He further advised of several personal issues that had compounded the problem of both horses not being presented to race.

In considering the elements of the case, the Stewards were satisfied that the unique circumstances due to Covid-19 SOP lockdown, had brought about the error and took no further action.


WITHDRAWAL OF APPEAL BY JOCKEY CALVIN GOON (C GOON) AGAINST THE SUSPENSION OF SIX (6) WEEKS FOR CONTRAVENTION OF MRA RULE 44(10) IMPOSED BY THE STIPENDIARY STEWARDS IN CONNECTION WITH HIS RIDING OF RACEHORSE “SPIN FIRE” IN RACE 11 (R183) ON SUNDAY, 14 MARCH 2021, SELANGOR TURF CLUB MARCH MEETING 2021

After consideration, the Racing Stewards acceded to his application and his deposit will be refunded. His suspension commenced on 5 May 2021 and to expire on 16 June 2021, both dates inclusive.
