 RACE 3 (R153)         CLASS 4 (B) – 1200M (SHORT COURSE)                                    

This race was run in light rain.

An objection was lodged by Jockey S Ruzaini (MISE EN GARDE), placed second against TRINITY GLAMOUR (App R Nuqman) being declared the winner, over the final 150M. The Racing Stewards upheld the objection and amended the placing to:

1st – MISE EN GARDE (S Ruzaini)

2nd – TRINITY GLAMOUR (App R Nuqman)

3rd – LIM’S SPHERE (J Shankar)

4th – NORTHERN KNIGHT (J Low)

Shortly after the start, CONFEAT (W Faizal) shifted out and crowded D’GREAT RISE (L De Souza), COME AND TAKE ALL (App N Varmah) and LEADING CELLIST (App A Suriya) when NORTHERN KNIGHT shifted in slightly.  

In the straight, COME AND TAKE ALL had to be steadied when running onto the heels of SHA NA NA (J Daniel).

TRINITY GLAMOUR drifted out over the concluding 150M, brushing MISE EN GARDE on two occasions.  App R Nuqman was reprimanded and advised that he must stop and straighten his mount rather than keep riding with the whip under similar circumstances in future.

GENERAL REPORT(S) – SLTC

RACE 8 (R1051) CLASS 5 (B) – 1200M (SHORT COURSE), SUNDAY, 13 DECEMBER 2020, SELANGOR TURF CLUB DECEMBER MEETING 2020 

An inquiry was concluded and evidence was taken from Jockey J Shankar (SATELLITE GENIUS) into the reasons SATELLITE GENIUS had been ridden in a rearward positon and then taken wide. 

Jockey J Shankar explained that he had ridden the gelding according to the instructions and believed that it had made good ground in the straight under his normal riding style. In noting his explanation, the Stewards advised that he is expected to ride every horse in a positive manner so as to leave no doubt as to his true purpose.


TUESDAY, 16 FEBRUARY 2021, SLTC

WEATHER MAN (H379) 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. 


FRIDAY, 9 OCTOBER 2020, SLTC

After further consideration by the Stewards, the fine of RM250/- for negligence under MRA Rule 152(5)(a) imposed on Syce Md Kajol (S.522), an employee of Trainer S Dunderdale, was rescinded.
