From its wide barrier, TRINITY FLYING (HS Gill) raced wide in the early stages.

The saddle on MOONGATE GOLD slipped backwards mid-race.

Trainer HY Cheng was questioned as to the reason that SHOW ROYALE (App AB Riduan) had led as opposed to its previous start. He stated that the gelding was stepping up to 1300M from the 1100M when he had instructed that the horse to be ridden where it was comfortable on the pace. However, SHOW ROYALE had jumped only moderately and able only to race in midfield. He instructed the same today and App AB Riduan was able to easily lead from its inside barrier. Trainer HY Cheng was advised that he is expected to ensure that SHOW ROYALE would be ridden in consistent fashion in future.

COMMODORE LINCOLN (Y Aify) was slow into stride.

NORTHERN KNIGHT (SU Lim) shifted out sharply and tightened TWENTYSIXTWELVE (J Daniel) which caused FIVE HUNDRED (C Goon) to check. FIVE HUNDRED was then ridden in a rearward position.

At a conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey SU Lim, the rider of NORTHERN KNIGHT,  pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that he shifted out at this stage.

RACE 3 (R790)         CLASS 5 (A) – 1300M (LONG COURSE)

PEARL DANCER (C Goon) raced wide in the middle stages.

Trainer C Leck was questioned as to the reason STAY SOUND (placed third) had led by a considerable margin as opposed to its rearward performance on 2 October 2021. He stated that he was mystified as to how STAY SOUND had led so easily as he believed the gelding would have displayed a considerable different attitude than its previous starts in order to be able to race prominently. He could only offer a suggestion that STAY SOUND was fresh, given that he had confined the gelding work with swimming since its previous start. Whilst accepting that STAY SOUND had not been ridden vigourously from the start nor mid-race, the Stewards advised Trainer C Leck that it was expected that STAY SOUND to be ridden in a similar fashion, leading or handy, in its future starts.

UNION JAC (App R Nuqman) was slow into stride.

RACE 9 (R764) CLASS 4 (B) – 1200M (SHORT COURSE), SUNDAY, 10 OCTOBER 2021, SELANGOR TURF CLUB OCTOBER MEETING 2021

The Stewards, on 15 October 2021 (Friday), inquired into Jockey S Zulfikri’s riding of AUSSIE EAGLE in the above race. Evidence was taken from Jockey S Zulfikri and Trainer S Siva, the rider and trainer of AUSSIE EAGLE respectively.

After considering the evidence and also reviewing the performance of AUSSIE EAGLE when winning on 26 September 2021, the Stewards found Jockey S Zulfikri guilty of a charge under MRA Rule 44(10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards. The particulars of the charge being that:

  1. He had unduly restrained AUSSIE EAGLE at the start although instructed to be in a handy-to-mid position;
  2. He remained behind SUPER BB (AK Lim) from the 450M until into the straight although presented with opportunities to improve his positon;
  3. His whip action and its veracity in the straight were inconsistent in affording AUSSIE EAGLE the best chance to improve.

The Stewards took into consideration Jockey S Zulfikri’s recent riding record, mitigating factors and his submissions on penalty. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of three (3) months, to be deferred, with effect from 18 October 2021 and to expire on 17 January 2022, both dates inclusive. He was also fined the sum of RM20,000/- and advised of his Right of Appeal.

At the conclusion of an inquiry today (17 October 2021), Jockey S Ruzaini, the rider of D’GREAT SONG, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that he shifted in near the 800M causing KUBERA’S CHIEF (App R Nuqman) to check.

In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey S Ruzaini’s guilty plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty.

The Stewards, on 17 October 2021, concluded an inquiry into Jockey S Ruzaini’s ride on LIM’S TORPEDO. Jockey S Ruzaini explained that he had been instructed to ride in rear position consistent with its previous start although the gelding was drawn on the inside.

On jumping, he had been bumped by MERCURIAL TURN (J De Souza). He had then been behind that gelding and was unable to improve until straightening. When attempting a run on straightening, he had been marginally blocked when BAOYE CHAMPION (App AB Riduan) had drifted in and although he had placed LIM’S TORPEDO thereafter under significant pressure with the whip, the gelding had failed to past a horse in the straight. His explanations were noted.

RACE 3 (R758)         CLASS 5 (A) – 1400M (LONG COURSE)

CONDADO (L De Souza) shifted in at the start, crowding FIVE HUNDRED (KC Tham) onto O’REILLY BAY (Y Aify).

FOREVER AND EVER (AK Lim) was ridden across quickly from its outside barrier and caused D’GREAT ACHIEVER (App S Sia) to shift in, which in turn caused FIVE HUNDRED (KC Tham) to bump with ALL WHITE (App Clyde Leck). At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey AK Lim, the rider of FOREVER AND EVER, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii). In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey AK Lim’s guilty plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of two (2) Malaysian race days with effect from 11 October 2021 and to expire on 17 October 2021, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal.

ALL WHITE became unbalanced near the 1100M.

In the early stages, CONDADO which was racing fiercely, was taken wide and then laid in considerably in the straight.

UPTOWN GIRL (J Shankar) which was making ground in the straight, had to be steadied at the 75M when laying in slightly.

A post-race veterinary examination of FOREVER AND EVER revealed that the mare bled and will be barred from racing for a period of three (3) months under MRA Rule 92(3) and thereafter will be required to pass a bleeder’s test before being declared to race again.

The Club Veterinary Surgeon reported that UPTOWN GIRL returned with a cut on the right commissure of the mouth. The mare will be required to undergo a veterinary examination before being declared to race again.

Acting on veterinary advice that COME AND TAKE ALL (R Rueven) was lame off fore, the gelding was withdrawn by order of the Stewards at 2pm. COME AND TAKE ALL will be required to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again.

STAR INVINCIBLE (App AB Riduan) which had cast its off fore plate at the start, was replated, checked by the Club Veterinary Surgeon and passed fit to race.

GOOD NEWS (KC Wong) veered outwards at the start, bumping CHER (S Ruzaini).

CHER was blocked for a clear run behind GOOD NEWS over the concluding 200M and had to be restrained. GOOD NEWS then shifted out at the same time as EL TORDILLO (SU Lim) shifting in onto ELITE REMARKABLE (HS Gill) which had to be checked at about the 75M.

Jockey HS Gill (ELITE REMARKABLE) dropped his whip at about the 400M. He was warned that a repetition of dropping the whip in future may lead to a penalty being imposed.

Jockey KC Wong (GOOD NEWS) and Jockey L De Souza (TRIPLE ONE STAR) were questioned as to why they had allowed the three early leaders to advance in front of their mounts between the 1200M and the 900M. Jockey KC Wong stated that he had pushed GOOD NEWS from the start but the gelding had showed no early pace and further it was burdened by top weight of 59kgs. Jockey L De Souza stated that he believed that the leaders had gone too quickly and he was content to make progress alongside GOOD NEWS. Whilst accepting these explanations, the Stewards reminded Jockeys KC Wong and L De Souza that they were expected to ride positively at all stages throughout the race so as to maximize their mounts’ chances.

EL TORDILLO returned having cast its off fore plate.

At the 1000M, D’GREAT JOURNEY (AK Lim) misstrode and became unbalanced.

The Stewards inquired into the running and handling of MR G (Jockey A Zaimuddin). Evidence was taken from Jockey A Zaimuddin and Trainer S Dunderdale, the rider and trainer of MR G respectively. At the conclusion of the inquiry, Jockey A Zaimuddin, the rider of MR G, pleaded guilty to a charge under MRA Rule 44(10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards. The particulars of the charge were that:

  1. He travelled wide between the 900M and the 600M when there was no need to do so; and
  2. He showed a lack of vigour in his riding in the straight. 

In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey A Zaimuddin’s plea of guilty, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of two (2) months, to be deferred, with effect from 11 October 2021 and to expire on 10 December 2021, both dates inclusive. Acting on the provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of his suspension. He was advised of his Right of Appeal.

SOUTHERN MAN (C Goon) struck the inside gate on jumping, losing considerable ground and was inclined to lay inwards in the straight.

ELITE WATERGHOST steadied off the heels of EL TORDILLO (HS Gill) approaching the winning post.

The saddle on BIG KING slipped backwards at the turn into the straight and this placed App R Nuqman at a disadvantage where he shifted in near the 150M, causing EL TORDILLO to steady and continued to shift with PRINCE PEGASUS easing at the 100M.

RESOLUTE (HS Gill) raced wide throughout. When questioned regarding this, Jockey HS Gill advised that RESOLUTE was having its initial start in Malaysia and he was unsure of that gelding’s characteristics. He had been unable to restrain RESOLUTE in an endeavour to take a sit behind SELANGOR EXPRESS (App R Nuqman) running to the first turn. Jockey HS Gill was advised that he should make a positive effort to ensure that his horses are not ridden wide when there are alternatives available.

RACE 8 (R733)         SUPREME A – 1100M (SHORT COURSE)

In the early stages, XENA (J Low) raced fiercely.

Jockey S Ruzaini (VOLCANIC GENERAL) was fined the sum of RM500/- under MRA Rule 44(12) for making a celebratory gesture prior to the winning post.

A post-race veterinary examination of SHOWBOY (Y Aify) revealed that it returned with laryngeal hemiplegia (grade 3) and as such will be required to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again.

The Stewards inquired into the manner in which App AB Riduan rode CONSTANT JUSTICE. Trainer HY Cheng stated that he had instructed CONSTANT JUSTICE be ridden forward but not lead, however, App AB Riduan was unable to restrain CONSTANT JUSTICE. The Stewards questioned App AB Riduan as to why he had looked on his inside on 3 occasions at the 800M, 600M and the 475M when travelling on the outside of the leader, VOLCANIC GENERAL (S Ruzaini). He stated that he was concerned as he heard some “calling” from behind and that he did not want to interfere with any other runner. When questioned as to the reason he had shifted out on straightening, he stated that he had been instructed to take CONSTANT JUSTICE to the middle of the track in the straight as it resented any horses around it and any kickback. Trainer HY Cheng confirmed these instructions and reasoning.

The Stewards heard evidence from Jockey S Ruzaini (VOLCANIC GENERAL) and Jockey J Low (XENA). Jockey J Low advised that it was him that called at the 475M but only to encourage XENA. He agreed that it was fortuitous that CONSTANT JUSTICE had shifted out at this stage, as it had afforded XENA an uninterrupted passage.

In considering this matter in totality, the Stewards warned App AB Riduan that he must ride each race individually and with a view in maximizing his horse’s chances, further he ought not to be concerned in other runners’ preferred passage. Further, Trainer HY Cheng was advised that when he had multiple runners, he must instruct that each horse is ridden independently so as to maximize its chances.

SORBETA (J De Souza) and BURKAAN (Y Aify) were slow into stride.

HIGH COUNCIL (App N Varmah) raced wide in the middle stages.

LIM’S PERSHING (App AB Riduan) raced wide throughout, taking the turn into the straight wide.

BURKAAN was blocked for a run near the 250M and had to be steadied when GOD HELPS ME (S Ruzaini) drifted out passing the 150M. Jockey S Ruzaini was advised that he must keep his mounts straight.

When questioned, Jockey J De Souza (SORBETA) advised that when crossed at the start by HANDSOME BENZ (HS Gill), he had eased SORBETA but the gelding had thrown its head and was reluctant to stride out resulting in him being at the tail of the field. He also advised that in his opinion, the 1100M was too short for SORBETA. Jockey HS Gill (HANDSOME BENZ) was warned that he must afford horses on his inside sufficient room at the start.

A post-race veterinary examination of LINCOLN MOONLIGHT (J Low) revealed that it was lame near fore and as such will be required to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again.

WATERMELON (MM Firdaus) raced wide throughout.

The Stewards inquired into App A Suriya’s riding of STAY SOUND. Trainer C Leck advised that STAY SOUND was a 6-year-old, 11 start Maiden and he had instructed that it would be ridden patiently as the gelding had a poor action, and was adversely affected when STAY SOUND was ridden vigourously in the early stages. Further, he had instructed App A Suriya to gradually make ground in the straight as he had not wished STAY SOUND to become unbalanced.

App A Suriya concurred with these instructions and advised that running to the first turn, he had been in a rearward position and surrounded by runners, he had allowed STAY SOUND to become balanced in the straight and had ridden it vigourously when it had run on only moderately.

Trainer C Leck tendered evidence of significant stable support. The Stewards accepted the explanations, however, advised Trainer C Leck that he must inform the Stewards if there was an intention to change the manner in which STAY SOUND was ridden in future.

A post-race veterinary examination of TRINITY LAD (A Zaimuddin) revealed that the gelding bled and will be barred from racing for a period of three (3) months under MRA Rule 92(3) and thereafter will be required to pass a bleeder’s test before being declared to race again.

In the early stages, TOUCH THE CLOUDS and EBRAZ (Y Aify) could not keep in touch with the field despite being ridden vigourously.

Near the 750M, ASIAN TIGER (App AB Riduan) had to be restrained when striding onto the heels of FIRST PRECINCT (J Shankar).

PEARL DANCER (S Ruzaini) raced wide on straightening.

RED SYMPHONY (CK Khaw) was ridden wide in the middle stages and was impeded near the 200M when GASSUR (Y Aify) shifted out. The Stewards inquired into Jockey CK Khaw’s ride on RED SYMPHONY. He stated that it was his first ride on the gelding and that he had been instructed to ride midfield, however, had been unable to secure a position close to the fence as MERCURIAL TURN (J De Souza) had kicked up on his inside and he was trapped wide until straightening. He had then tried to secure a passage in the straight before riding RED SYMPHONY vigourously. The Stewards warned Jockey CK Khaw that he must ensure that he rides all his horses in a manner which is positive and to ensure they are be fully tested.

ARLO (S Ruzaini) which returned exhibiting abnormal behaviour, was impounded for analytical and veterinary examination. 

A post-race veterinary examination of TRINITY TARZAN revealed that the gelding bled and will be barred from racing for a period of three (3) months under MRA Rule 92(3) and thereafter will be required to pass a bleeder’s test before being declared to race again.

RACE 2 (R695) CLASS 5 (A) – 1250M (LONG COURSE)

Acting on veterinary advice that MAIDANZ BEAUTY (App Clyde Leck) had sustained multiple lacerations to the near hind at the pre-race holding yard, the mare was withdrawn by order of the Stewards at 12:25pm. MAINDANZ BEAUTY will be required to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again.

Running to the 1000M, GLENAFTON (J Low) had to be steadied off the heels of FOREVER AND EVER (AK Lim) when that horse eased when crossed by ATTENTION (S Ruzaini). 

In the run to the 1000M, SAND BANK (J De Souza) threw its head when being steadied. 

Near the 300M, COMMODORE LINCOLN (Y Aify) shifted out with GLENAFTON shifting outwards from it and inconvenienced THE ICEMAN (App A Suriya). 

The Stewards inquired into Jockey J Low’s riding of GLENAFTON. At the conclusion of the inquiry, Jockey J Low, the rider of GLENAFTON, was found guilty of a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards. The particulars of the charge were that after taking a good jump, he failed to put any pressure onto GLENAFTON in an endeavour to have it race in a midfield position.

In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey J Low’s mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of one (1) month, to be deferred, with effect from 4 October 2021 and to expire on 3 November 2021, both dates inclusive. Acting on the provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of his suspension. He was advised of his Right of Appeal.

The Stewards granted permission for Jockey HS Gill to replace Jockey A Zaimuddin as the rider of HAPPY GHOST as the latter was unable to make the carded weight. Jockey A Zaimuddin was warned that a repetition in future, may lead to a penalty being imposed. He was also advised that an embargo of 56kgs was placed on his weight. 

HAPPY GHOST (HS Gill) jumped awkwardly. 

In the middle stages, SUPER LINE (Y Aify) raced wide. 

In the run to the first turn, SLEEPY JOE (J Low) raced fiercely.

HAPPY LUCKY STAR (CK Khaw) was slow to begin.

Near the 250M, the tiring SMART RACER (App Clyde Leck) rolled in causing UNION JAC (App R Nuqman) to be restrained. 

The Stewards inquired into the riding of App Clyde Leck (SMART RACER) and App R Nuqman (UNION JAC) as to the reason that they had both led by a considerable margin in the early part of the race. 

After taking evidence from App Clyde Leck, in the presence of his Employing Trainer, C Leck who is also the Trainer of SMART RACER, and App R Nuqman, in the presence of his Employing Trainer, BT Lim, and also Trainer SY Lim, the trainer of UNION JAC, the Stewards were satisfied that App Clyde Leck, although had been instructed to lead, was unable to restrain SMART RACER and take a sit. Further that whilst App R Nuqman had been instructed to ride UNION JAC in a midfield position, the gelding had raced too fiercely and he was reluctant to restrain it, as it had a light mouth and he feared that UNION JAC would throw its head. As such, the Stewards warned both App Clyde Leck and App R Nuqman that they must endeavour to make a greater effort to restrain their mounts and ride more diligently in future. 

A post-race veterinary examination of UNION JAC revealed no significant finding.

On 7 April 2021, Jockey C Goon (ATTENTION) was suspended for three (3) months under MRA Rule 44(10) for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards. He subsequently exercised his Right of Appeal and applied for a Stay of Sentence, which was granted.

Prior to this, on 18 March 2021, Jockey C Goon (SPIN FIRE) was suspended for six (6) weeks, however he subsequently withdrew his Appeal and served his suspension from 5 May 2021 and expiring on 16 June 2021, both dates inclusive.

Due to the present Covid-19 Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0 restrictions and under the powers of MRA Rule 146(1) & 149(1)(c)&(d), the SLTC Racing Stewards made the following orders:

  1. That the Appeal of Jockey C Goon (ATTENTION) be deferred until it is able to be conducted in person at SLTC.
  2. That the current Stay of Sentence issued on 7 April 2021 be rescinded.
  3. That the penalty of 3-month suspension commences immediately and be served concurrently with his other suspension.
  4. Should such suspension (3 months for ATTENTION) be still in force, when racing at SLTC (or other Malaysian race Clubs) recommences, that a Stay of Sentence be summarily granted to Jockey C Goon to allow him to ride, until such Appeal is determined.

On 15 September 2021, Jockey C Goon subsequently applied to withdraw his appeal for his suspension of three (3) months in relation to ATTENTION. In view of the above, Jockey C Goon has been deemed to have served his suspension of three (3) months from 17 June 2021 to 16 September 2021, both dates inclusive and his deposit will be refunded.

On 15 September 2021, Jockey J Low subsequently submitted a request to the Racing Stewards in order for his 3-day suspension to be set aside due to hardship imposed by the Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0.

After consideration, the Racing Stewards, on 18 September 2021, acceded to his request and deemed that this 3-day suspension be set aside.

When questioned regarding the reason why BEIJING STAR was in a rearward position in the early stages, Jockey J Low advised that he had intended to ride the gelding midfield, however, BEIJING STAR had failed to show any dash and he felt that the gelding was of a totally different demeanour to its previous start. Trainer HY Cheng stated that he was disappointed with the gelding’s performance, however, advised that BEIJING STAR had not eaten up well since its last work on Tuesday. He had no concern regarding the horse’s suitability for today’s race but believed that the horse may benefit from an ease in his work load. In light of this, BEIJING STAR will be required to pass a 1000M/vet test before being declared to race again and was impounded.

INQUIRY INTO A REPORT CONCERNING URINE SAMPLE CODED “J-4211” WHICH WAS TAKEN ON 18 APRIL 2021 AT THE SELANGOR TURF CLUB, WAS FOUND TO CONTAIN MITRAGYNINE 

The Stewards conducted an inquiry on Thursday, 20 May 2021 by Zoom connection, into the Analyst’s Report that Sample Coded “J-4211” which was taken on 18 April 2021 at the Selangor Turf Club, was found to contain mitragynine. Evidence was taken from Apprentice Jockey AB Riduan, from whom the sample was taken and his Employing Trainer, HY Cheng.

Apprentice AB Riduan was found guilty of a charge under MRA Rule 136(3)(b) with having supplied a sample at the Selangor Turf Club on 18 April 2021 which upon analysis, was found to contain the prohibited, mitragynine.

In considering a penalty, the Stewards took into account; Apprentice AB Riduan’s personal circumstances, the penalties imposed on two riders recently at SLTC for similar offences and that Apprentice AB Riduan had been stood down from races, trials and trackwork since 24 April 2021, as such Apprentice A B Riduan was suspended from riding in races from 20 May 2021 until midnight 23 June 2021.


WITHDRAWAL OF APPEAL BY JOCKEY WONG KAM CHONG (KC WONG) AGAINST THE SUSPENSION OF ONE (1) MONTH FOR CONTRAVENTION OF MRA RULE 44(10) IMPOSED BY THE STIPENDIARY STEWARDS IN CONNECTION WITH HIS RIDING OF RACEHORSE “BERLINETTA” IN RACE 3 (R323), CLASS 5 (A) – 1500M (LONG COURSE) ON SUNDAY, 18 APRIL 2021 AT THE SELANGOR TURF CLUB APRIL MEETING 2021

Jockey KC Wong who lodged an appeal against his suspension of one (1) month for failing to ride to the satisfaction of the Stewards under MRA Rule 44(10), applied to withdraw his appeal on 12 May 2021.

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

GENERAL REPORTS (SLTC)

CHANGE OF RACING DISTANCE FOR SELANGOR 2 MAY 2021 RACE MEETING

The Selangor Turf Club has decided to change the racing distance for Race 1 and Race 2 from 1200M to 1250M in the Selangor 2 May 2021 race meeting.


RACE 11 (R331) CLASS 5 (B) – 1100M (SHORT COURSE), SUNDAY, 18 APRIL 2021, SELANGOR TURF CLUB APRIL MEETING 2021 

The Stewards, on 28 April 2021 at the Selangor Turf Club, concluded the inquiry into the riding tactics employed on TIGER BOSS (App A N Varmah) and BOOM ALMIGHTY (App WW Cheah). Parties were interviewed by telephone. 

Trainer C Leck advised that he had instructed App N Varmah to ride TIGER BOSS for pace and attempt to lead. App N Varmah confirmed that he had ridden TIGER BOSS vigourously in an attempt to lead, which he had accomplished easily but had been taken on by BOOM ALMIGHTY when that horse had progressed on his outside, he had been reluctant to restrain TIGER BOSS as he believed the gelding was travelling well and BOOM ALMIGHTY had not crossed him. 

Trainer R Lines advised that he had instructed App WW Cheah to have BOOM ALMIGHTY, which was having its initial Malaysian race start, in a forward to handy position from its outside draw. App WW Cheah stated that he had lost his near stirrup iron on jumping when BOOM ALMIGHTY brushed DANE’S ANATOMY (R Rueven). He had attempted to re-secure the stirrup iron and had only partly achieved this approaching the 850M. In attempting to secure his stirrup iron, he had allowed BOOM ALMIGHTY to advance on the outside of the leader TIGER BOSS. Whilst not intending to be in this position, he had decided to allow BOOM ALMIGHTY to lead, as he believed it was travelling well. 

In assessing the evidence, the Stewards attached no blame to App N Varmah’s riding of TIGER BOSS. The Stewards considered that App WW Cheah’s riding of BOOM ALMIGHTY was unsatisfactory, however believed they could not substantiate a charge under the Rules due to his riding being in part influenced by him having lost his stirrup iron. App WW Cheah was reprimanded for failing to ride BOOM ALMIGHTY in a diligent manner.


INQUIRY INTO THE REASON FOR APP M LUKMAN (ALICEINWONDERLAND) BEING DISLODGED NEAR THE 450M IN RACE 6 (R370) OPEN MAIDEN (WFA) – 1100M (SHORT COURSE), SUNDAY, 25 APRIL 2021, SELANGOR TURF CLUB APRIL MEETING 2021 

On 30 April 2021 at the Selangor Turf Club, App M Lukman, the rider of ALICEINWONDERLAND, in the presence of his Employing Trainer, Mr WC Lim, was questioned as to this incident.

The Stewards were satisfied that the evidence disclosed that at this stage, App M Lukman was following UNLIMITED STAR (J De Souza) when it commenced to tire. He had moved to the outside of the heels of that gelding but ALICEINWONDERLAND had shifted back inwards when tending to shy away from SLEEPY JOE (J Low) which had progressed on its outside. ALICEINWONDERLAND had then struck UNLIMITED STAR’s heels and blundered, dislodging App M Lukman.

In assessing this incident, the Stewards apportioned no blame to any rider.
