Race: 1 (119) BANK STREET HANDICAP Class 5 1200 m
On jumping, MASSIVE MILLENNIUM, which reared on a number of occasions when fractious in the barriers, bounded in the air and made heavy contact with the hindquarters of WINNING CONTROLLER, causing WINNING CONTROLLER to become unbalanced and MASSIVE MILLENNIUM to lose ground.
From wide barriers, OHANA and HAYMAKER were steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.
Making the first turn approaching the 1050 Metres, GOLDEN GLORY hung out.
Making the turn after the 1000 Metres, ROCKET LET WIN got its head on the side, made the turn awkwardly and was awkwardly placed inside the heels of WINNING CONTROLLER.
Making the turn after the 600 Metres, ROCKET LET WIN, which continued to lay out, lost ground when momentarily crowded for room inside OUR HONOUR (N Rawiller) which lay in. N Rawiller was severely reprimanded and advised that whilst the Stewards acknowledged that ROCKET LET WIN was inclined to lay out for the majority of the race, nonetheless he had allowed his mount to shift inside the line of one-off. He was advised to ensure that he makes every endeavour to afford other runners comfortable racing room. MASSIVE MILLENNIUM, which was following, got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of ROCKET LET WIN in consequence. After this, ROCKET LET WIN continued to lay out. MASSIVE MILLENNIUM, which was following ROCKET LET WIN, was awkwardly placed behind that horse rounding the Home Turn.
Rounding the Home Turn and in the Straight, GOLDEN GLORY lay out under pressure.
Throughout the race, GOLDEN GLORY travelled wide and without cover.
A veterinary inspection of MASSIVE MILLENNIUM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.
WINNING CONTROLLER, OUR HONOUR and KIM GLORY were sent for sampling.
Race: 2 (120) JACKSON HANDICAP (Sec1) Class 4 1200 m
CHEERFULJET shifted out abruptly at the start, resulting in CLEAR CHOICE, GREAT JOY and PADDINGTON all being crowded for room inside STARLIT KNIGHT which also became unbalanced after being bumped by PADDINGTON. After this, CLEAR CHOICE, GREAT JOY, PADDINGTON and STARLIT KNIGHT were all shifted across behind runners.
LONDON MASTER shifted out at the start and hampered MR KOOL.
Shortly after the start, FOREVER POSH and MAGICAL CHAMPION bumped.
Making the first turn approaching the 1050 Metres, PADDINGTON was awkwardly placed close to the heels of CLEAR CHOICE which got its head on the side and shifted out marginally.
Near the 650 Metres, PADDINGTON was left racing wide and without cover.
Making the turn after the 600 Metres, MAGICAL CHAMPION raced in restricted room inside CLEAR CHOICE (T Berry) which got its head on the side and shifted in. T Berry was advised in similar circumstances to make every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground. GREAT JOY, which was following, was steadied away from the heels of MAGICAL CHAMPION in consequence.
After the 150 Metres, CHEERFULJET commenced to shift in towards the running of BEAUTY CONNECTION, resulting in B Prebble, the rider of CHEERFULJET, straightening his mount.
Passing the 100 Metres, CLEAR CHOICE was directed out from behind FOREVER POSH which shifted out under pressure.
When questioned regarding his riding of GREAT JOY in the Home Straight, Apprentice M F Poon stated that rounding the Home Turn and at the entrance to the Straight he had been following MR KOOL. He said shortly after entering the Straight there were runs available both to the inside and outside of MR KOOL and given tonight’s race was conducted on the C course, he felt that there was more opportunity for clear running to the inside due to horses fanning out in the early part of the Straight. He said he was aware that WORLD CITY was racing in advance of MR KOOL, but he considered that horse to be a number of lengths in front of MR KOOL, so he felt the best option for GREAT JOY was to shift to the inside of that horse and approaching the 250 Metres he shifted GREAT JOY to the inside of MR KOOL. He said when he did this WORLD CITY commenced to come under pressure and he had to shift in away from behind that horse near the 200 Metres, however, he was able to do so without having to check GREAT JOY or impede the horse’s momentum. He added GREAT JOY was finishing off the race strongly, however, he was reluctant to use the whip on the horse as BEAUTY CONNECTION and CHEERFULJET were racing in advance of GREAT JOY and, in his opinion, whilst a tight run existed between those horses, he chose not to use the whip on the horse in case either of those horses shifted ground. He said when it became apparent to him that CHEERFULJET was shifting out, he then rode his mount aggressively to improve between BEAUTY CONNECTION and CHEERFULJET and GREAT JOY then finished off the race strongly. Trainer D J Hall stated he believed that GREAT JOY’s best chances of being successful in tonight’s race were for the horse to receive uninterrupted running given that it was racing over 1200 Metres and had previously shown to be more effective in distances longer than that of tonight’s race. He said after viewing the film he believed that the option of shifting either side or MR KOOL was available to Apprentice Poon in the early part of the Straight and given the rail placement tonight, he was satisfied with Apprentice Poon’s decision to shift GREAT JOY to the inside of MR KOOL rather than exploring runs to the outside of that horse. Apprentice Poon was advised that his explanation would be reported, however, he was reminded of his obligation to ensure that, wherever possible, horses are afforded clear and uninterrupted running so that they are able to be properly tested. A veterinary inspection of GREAT JOY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
CHEERFULJET, LONDON MASTER and BEAUTY CONNECTION were sent for sampling.
Race: 3 (121) THE WAYFOONG CENTENARY BOWL (HANDICAP) Class 4 1650 m
TELECOM SUN and ISTANBUL BEY bumped at the start and then, from wide barriers, were shifted across behind runners.
After initially being ridden along, MEGATRON was steadied shortly after the start and shifted across behind runners to obtain a position closer to the rail.
Shortly after the start, CELESTIAL ARROW was crowded for room inside POLYMER LUCK.
Passing the 1500 Metres, CELESTIAL ARROW was shifted in away from the heels of MEGATRON (K Teetan) which shifted in abruptly before being corrected. K Teetan was severely reprimanded and warned against the practice of shifting his mounts in at an acute angle.
Despite being ridden along in the early stages, JIMSON THE FAMOUS failed to muster speed and consequently raced back in the field and travelled wide and without cover for the majority of the race.
Making the turn passing the winning post on the first occasion, MEGATRON raced in restricted room inside WAH MAY BABY.
FIVE STARS AGENT travelled wide and without cover in the early stages and was allowed to improve its position after the 1200 Metres to obtain a position closer to the rail.
Near the 500 Metres, MASSIVE POWER momentarily raced in restricted room inside FIVE STARS AGENT. In this incident, FIVE STARS AGENT became unbalanced.
At the entrance to the Straight, SUPREME STORM was shifted in away from the heels of MEGATRON.
Approaching the 200 Metres, FIVE STARS AGENT was momentarily awkwardly placed inside the heels of POLYMER LUCK which shifted in under pressure.
A veterinary inspection of MASSIVE POWER immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
WAH MAY BABY and POLYMER LUCK were sent for sampling.
Race: 4 (122) DES VOEUX HANDICAP Class 5 1800 m
Shortly after the start, SWEET BEAN was crowded for room between HAPPY FRIENDSHIP and GOLD VELVET which shifted in after being bumped by FUN MANAGER on jumping.
From wide barriers, BEST JADE TRIUMPH and ROCK THE TREE were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
At the 500 Metres and again rounding the Home Turn, ROCK THE TREE raced tight outside BEST JADE TRIUMPH.
At the entrance to the Straight, FUN MANAGER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of FRUITFUL LIFE which was taken out by AUDACITY which in turn was taken out by DON WONGCHOY which made the Home Turn awkwardly.
In the early part of the Straight, ATOMIC BLAST lay out under pressure.
Over the concluding stages, EMPIRE OF MONGOLIA was awkwardly placed outside the heels of SWEET BEAN.
When questioned, Mr A T Millard, the trainer of ATOMIC BLAST, said when assessing the likely tempo of tonight’s race, as he could not identify any recognised leader, he felt that the race would likely be run at a slow tempo. He said he was of the opinion that were ATOMIC BLAST to be ridden back in the field, the tempo would count against the horse and therefore having engaged a 7 lb claiming apprentice jockey and from the outside barrier, he felt that there was a good opportunity for the horse to be ridden positively in the early stages to take advantage of the anticipated slow tempo of the race. After considering the makeup of tonight’s field and the merits of Mr Millard’s instructions, no further action was considered necessary.
A veterinary inspection of AUDACITY immediately following the race including an endoscopic examination showed a substantial amount of blood in the horse's trachea. Before being allowed to race again, AUDACITY will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
FUN MANAGER, FRUITFUL LIFE and GOLD VELVET were sent for sampling.
Race: 5 (123) JACKSON HANDICAP (Sec2) Class 4 1200 m
On arrival at the Start, C Schofield expressed concern regarding the action of SALSA BROTHERS. SALSA BROTHERS was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said in his opinion it was lame in its left front leg and as such was not suitable to race. Acting on this advice, SALSA BROTHERS was withdrawn by order of the Stewards. Before being allowed to race again, SALSA BROTHERS will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
Shortly after the start, WONDERFUL TIGER got its head up when being shifted in across the heels of ENJOY LIFE.
From a wide barrier, ARGENTUM was steadied in the early stages and shifted across behind runners.
Making the first turn near the 1050 Metres, LEISURED FEET got its head on the side and lay in away from I’M A WITNESS and in doing so bumped MASSIVE MOVE, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.
For a considerable distance after the 900 Metres, WONDERFUL TIGER proved very difficult to settle and got its head up on a number of occasions when being checked away from the heels of KWAICHUNG BROTHERS.
Shortly after entering the Straight, ENJOY LIFE was shifted to the inside of KWAICHUNG BROTHERS when that horse was shifted out to obtain clear running.
A veterinary inspection of PEARL WARM WARM and ENJOY LIFE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
GENEROUS HEART and LANG TAI SING were sent for sampling.
Race: 6 (124) QUEEN'S ROAD CENTRAL HANDICAP (Sec2) Class 3 1200 m
On arrival at the Start, ALL BEST FRIENDS, which kicked a rail whilst in the Parade Ring, was examined by the Veterinary Officer who said the horse was suitable to race.
ROUNDABOUT and MASTER ALBERT bumped at the start.
CALCULATION began awkwardly.
CIRCUIT KING shifted out on jumping and inconvenienced BEST STEP.
THOR THE GREATEST (Apprentice M F Poon) shifted in on jumping and inconvenienced SILLY BUDDIES. After initially being taken in by THOR THE GREATEST, SILLY BUDDIES shifted in away from that horse which resulted in CALCULATION being badly crowded for room between SILLY BUDDIES and CHARITY GLORY. Apprentice Poon was advised to ensure that he responds as quickly as possible to his mounts shifting ground so as to prevent causing interference.
From wide barriers, AMAZING FEELING and DUKEDOM were shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Making the first turn near the 1050 Metres, ROUNDABOUT got its head up when being steadied away from the heels of MASTER ALBERT.

When being steadied to obtain cover after the 900 Metres, CIRCUIT KING proved difficult to settle.
After the 900 Metres, CHARITY GLORY was awkwardly placed between ROUNDABOUT and CALCULATION which shifted in marginally.
In the early part of the Straight, ROUNDABOUT lay in under pressure.
Over the last 50 Metres, CHARITY GLORY hung in under pressure.
When questioned regarding the performance of BEST STEP, Z Purton stated that, from the wide barrier, he was able to shift BEST STEP across to obtain a forward position in the early stages without having to make too much use of the horse. He said making the first turn he was left racing in a three wide position outside CIRCUIT KING and as it was not available for him at this time to steady BEST STEP to obtain a position with cover, he was obliged to press on forward of CIRCUIT KING. He said whilst he had to take some time to cross CIRCUIT KING, he did not have to make too much use of the horse to do so and he was comfortable with the manner in which BEST STEP travelled in the middle stages after crossing to race outside the leader. He said BEST STEP continued to travel well until passing the 400 Metres at which stage MASTER ALBERT commenced to improve its position around BEST STEP. He added BEST STEP immediately came under pressure and did not quicken for him and then, despite being ridden along in the early part of the Straight, gave ground noticeably to finish at the rear of the field. Trainer C Fownes stated that he anticipated that THOR THE GREATEST and CIRCUIT KING might lead the race and he had hoped, from the wide barrier, to be able to obtain a trailing position if possible. He said however that the circumstances of the race in the early stages resulted in BEST STEP having to race outside the lead, but this could not be used as an excuse for the horse’s disappointing run. He said BEST STEP had done well since its last start success and he was not able to offer any explanation for the disappointing performance of the horse. He said it was particularly concerning to him the manner in which BEST STEP gave ground and therefore he would have to reassess the horse’s programme given its very disappointing run tonight. A veterinary inspection of BEST STEP immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. The performance of BEST STEP, a last start winner, was considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, BEST STEP will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
MASTER ALBERT, CHARITY GLORY and BREEDERS’ STAR were sent for sampling.
Race: 7 (125) QUEEN'S ROAD CENTRAL HANDICAP (Sec1) Class 3 1200 m
WONDERFUL JOURNEY began awkwardly.
SMART BOY and FANTASTIC FEELING bumped shortly after the start, causing both horses to become unbalanced.
From wide barriers, SMART BOY, SHALLUCK and RIGHT HONOURABLE were all shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
For some distance making the first turn approaching the 1000 Metres, RADIANT TREASURE proved very difficult to settle and got its head up when being checked away from the heels of SMART BOY. After this, RADIANT TREASURE continued to prove very difficult to settle and was awkwardly placed behind SMART BOY which resulted in RADIANT TREASURE shifting to the outside of that horse after the 700 Metres when continuing to over-race.
Near the 650 Metres, SMART BOY got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of FANTASTIC FEELING.
Passing the 300 Metres, SMART BOY was shifted to the inside of WONDERFUL JOURNEY which was directed to the inside of ALL GREAT FRIENDS after being disappointed for running between that horse and DIEGO KOSTA. When SMART BOY shifted in, RIGHT HONOURABLE, which was following, was shifted out away from that horse in consequence.
Passing the 200 Metres, Apprentice M F Poon (WONDERFUL JOURNEY) momentarily dropped his left rein.
After the 200 Metres, FANTASTIC FEELING got its head on the side and lay out under pressure.
The Stewards questioned Apprentice M F Poon, the rider of the 3rd placegetter, WONDERFUL JOURNEY, regarding his riding out of that horse close to the finishing line. Whilst the Stewards were satisfied that Apprentice Poon’s failure to ride his mount out to the end of the race did not affect the horse’s finishing position, he was nonetheless severely reprimanded and advised that had FANTASTIC FEELING beaten home WONDERFUL JOURNEY, he would likely have faced a charge which, in the event of him being found guilty, would have led to the imposition of a significant penalty.
A veterinary inspection of DIEGO KOSTA and RADIANT TREASURE immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
WHO ELSE BUT YOU and SMART BOY were sent for sampling.
Race: 8 (126) SUTHERLAND HANDICAP Class 3 1650 m
MIGHTY BOY was bumped on jumping by QUICK RETURN which shifted in.
WHO DAT SINGA and SUPER FORM bumped at the start as did PHOTON WILLIE and KIRAM.
From the outside barrier, GOODHEART SUCCESS was shifted across behind runners in the early stages.
Despite being ridden along in the early stages, MIGHTY BOY failed to muster speed.
Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, GONNA RUN and SUPER FORM bumped.
Approaching and passing the 1100 Metres, QUICK RETURN got its head up when awkwardly placed close to the heels of WHO DAT SINGA.
Passing the 1100 Metres, RED MARVEL was steadied away from the heels of GOLDEN SLEEP which was taken in by BEAUTY LOVE. MIGHTY BOY, which was following RED MARVEL, was awkwardly placed close to the heels of that horse in consequence.
After the 1100 Metres, KIRAM was left racing wide and without cover.
BEAUTY LOVE lost its right hind plate after the 1100 Metres.
For some distance after the 700 Metres, WHO DAT SINGA was awkwardly placed close to the heels of BEAUTY LOVE which was commencing to give ground. QUICK RETURN, which was following WHO DAT SINGA, was checked away from the heels of that horse in consequence. BEAUTY LOVE then continued to give ground, resulting in WHO DAT SINGA being checked away from the heels of BEAUTY LOVE approaching the 500 Metres and shifting out away from behind that horse which resulted in WHO DAT SINGA and PHOTON WILLIE racing tight. When WHO DAT SINGA was checked away from the heels of BEAUTY LOVE near the 500 Metres, QUICK RETURN, which was following, was again checked away from the heels of WHO DAT SINGA in consequence. After this, BEAUTY LOVE continued to give ground abruptly which resulted in QUICK RETURN being severely checked away from the heels of that horse approaching the 400 Metres. A veterinary inspection of BEAUTY LOVE, which finished tailed out, immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. Having regard to BEAUTY LOVE’s previous record of having performed unacceptably in races, that horse will be required to perform competitively in a series of consecutive barrier trials and be subjected to an official veterinary examination prior to being permitted to race again.
Close to the finishing line, K Teetan (SUPER FORM) dropped his right rein.
When questioned, Apprentice M F Poon stated that he was instructed to shift OUTLAWED to the centre of the track in the Home Straight as the majority of winning horses had made their runs from the middle towards the outside of the track. He said for this reason after the 500 Metres he commenced to work his way out as he felt that it was better for him to gradually shift towards the centre of the track rather than getting to the Home Straight and having to shift OUTLAWED abruptly to the centre of the track.
When questioned, W M Lai (GOLDEN SLEEP) stated that whilst it was available to him to improve to the inside of OUTLAWED after the 500 Metres, given the pattern of races previously conducted tonight, he formed the view that it was more advantageous for GOLDEN SLEEP to shift to the outside of OUTLAWED and make its finishing run towards the centre of the track rather than improving to the inside of that horse and racing towards the inner part of the course.
A veterinary inspection of KIRAM immediately following the race did not show any significant findings.
GONNA RUN and SUPER FORM were sent for sampling.
The following horse was replated in the saddling stalls:-
Race 1: CARRY TO WIN (right hind)
After the running of Race 1, the track classification was officially changed from "Good” to "Good to Firm”. This change in the opinion of the Stewards should be recorded as being retrospective. As a consequence of this, the official results will show Race 1 being run on a track rated "Good to Firm”.
3. 14 October 2017 Sha Tin Racemeeting – Race 4 (112)
The Stewards tonight interviewed Trainer D E Ferraris and his allocated assistant trainer Mr S K Sit regarding a matter which was referred to the Stewards by Dr P Curl, the Club’s Executive Manager, Veterinary Regulation. Dr Curl informed the Stewards that on the morning of Sunday, 15 October 2017 he had received information from Mr Ferraris that ELITE SPIRIT had bled after the race conducted the previous day, however, this information had not been included in the official racing incidents report. Mr Ferraris tonight informed the Stewards that as he was not present when ELITE SPIRIT returned following the race, he could not give any evidence as to whether there was blood at either of the horse’s nostril, however, Mr Sit had informed him straight after the race that the horse had bled. Mr Ferraris said that acting on this advice he immediately informed the owner of ELITE SPIRIT that the horse had bled for a second time. Mr Sit informed the Stewards that when being unsaddled after the race, he observed blood in the right nostril of ELITE SPIRIT, he therefore directed his stables assistant to take the horse to be examined at or near the sampling stalls as is normal practice. He said at the time he believed that this would be brought to the attention of a Veterinary Officer, however, he acknowledged that he did not specifically instruct the stables assistant to show the horse to a Veterinary Officer. It was further established that the stables assistant, on arrival at the sampling stalls, was informed by the members of the Security Department that ELITE SPIRIT had not been included in the clinical examination and accordingly the horse was not examined by a Veterinary Officer. The Stewards accepted that neither Mr Ferraris nor Mr Sit attempted to conceal the fact that ELITE SPIRIT had bled and that the incident occurred due to Mr Sit not fully instructing his stables staff as to the appropriate measures to be taken. Mr Sit was advised to ensure that he reports any horse which has bled from one or both nostrils to the Stewards, the Veterinary Officer or the Veterinary Surgeon at the earliest opportunity. Mr Ferraris accepted that ELITE SPIRIT was found to have bled after the race and accordingly the horse was deemed to have bled for the second occasion during its career.
4. Adjourned Inquiries – 10 September 2017 Sha Tin Racemeeting – Race 9 (27)
The Stewards tonight concluded two inquiries which were adjourned from the Sha Tin racemeeting on 10 September 2017. These inquiries were adjourned due to H W Lai, the rider of G-ONE LOVER, being unavailable as a consequence of injuries sustained when dislodged form that horse near the 550 Metres. In respect of this incident, the Stewards found that for some distance passing the 600 Metres G-ONE LOVER was awkwardly placed close to the heels of APOLLO’S CHOICE when travelling strongly. As H W Lai commenced to shift G-ONE LOVER to the outside of APOLLO’S CHOICE, that horse was simultaneously shifted to the outside of the heels of BORNTOACHIEVE. G-ONE LOVER then clipped the heels of APOLLO’S CHOICE and blundered badly, resulting in H W Lai being dislodged. As it was established that G-ONE LOVER had not improved to be racing outside of the heels of APOLLO’S CHOICE as that horse shifted to the outside of BORNTOACHIEVE, the Stewards were satisfied that there was no carelessness attached to this incident and accordingly no further action was deemed necessary. However, H W Lai was told to ensure that, wherever possible, he avoids racing too close to the heels of runners in front. At a further inquiry, H W Lai (G-ONE LOVER) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding [Rule 100(1)] in that passing the 900 Metres he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of OUR FOLKS, causing that horse to be unnecessarily crowded for room and to lose the running to which it was rightfully entitled. In the unique circumstances of this case, the Stewards, having regard to the fact that Jockey Lai has not ridden since this racemeeting and is not likely to resume race riding in the immediate future, considered it appropriate for him to be severely reprimanded rather than any period of suspension or monetary penalty being imposed.
