8 DYNAMISM N/A D E Ferraris 9 120 88 -1 --

Steward Report Predict Pace Map
DYNAMISM was withdrawn on 8.7.17 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (sore left fore fetlock). Before being allowed to race again, DYNAMISM will be subjected to an official veterinary examination. ANDOYAS was slow to begin. GENERAL SHERMAN began awkwardly and then was crowded for room with RENAISSANCE ART between PRAWN BABA which shifted in marginally and ROCKETEER which shifted out. Passing the 1700 Metres, ANDOYAS raced tight between HAPPILABABY and HELENE CHARISMA. Approaching the winning post on the first occasion, SUPREME PROFIT shifted out marginally and made heavy contact with the hindquarters of BASIC TRILOGY which was laying in. This resulted in BASIC TRILOGY becoming badly unbalanced and being turned in across the running of SUPREME PROFIT, causing that horse to be checked. When SUPREME PROFIT was checked, that horse shifted in and bumped PRAWN BABA which in turn shifted in and bumped RENAISSANCE ART. GENERAL SHERMAN, which was racing to the inside of RENAISSANCE ART, was steadied when crowded for room between RENAISSANCE ART and ROCKETEER and in doing so became badly unbalanced. After being turned in across SUPREME PROFIT, BASIC TRILOGY was then awkwardly placed inside the heels of GREEN DISPATCH (Apprentice H T Mo) which, when being ridden along, got its head on the side and lay in. In this incident, Apprentice Mo stopped riding GREEN DISPATCH and attempted to shift that horse out to relieve the tightening to BASIC TRILOGY. Apprentice Mo was advised that whilst the primary reason for SUPREME PROFIT being checked was as a result of contact on the hindquarters by BASIC TRILOGY, nonetheless in similar circumstances he must ensure that he makes every endeavour to prevent his mounts from shifting ground HAPPILABABY lost its right hind plate near the 450 Metres. Passing the 400 Metres, DINOZZO was shifted out away from the heels of DOYENI which shifted in when awkwardly placed inside the heels of PRAWN BABA. DINOZZO was then held up for clear running from near the 350 Metres until passing the 300 Metres. DOYENI also had difficulty obtaining clear running until near the 250 Metres. DINOZZO was again badly held up for clear running over the final 150 Metres and consequently was not able to be tested. PRAWN BABA raced in restricted room between DOYENI and ROCKETEER over the concluding stages and was not able to be fully tested. HELENE CHARISMA hung in badly in the Straight and proved difficult to ride and passing the 200 Metres shifted in and bumped the hindquarters of GENERAL SHERMAN which became unbalanced. HELENE CHARISMA continued to hang in and raced tight outside GENERAL SHERMAN for some distance and then passing the 100 Metres hung in further, resulting in GENERAL SHERMAN being crowded onto ROCKETEER which became unbalanced after being bumped by GENERAL SHERMAN. During this incident, Z Purton was not able to properly test HELENE CHARISMA due to the horse’s racing manners which were considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, HELENE CHARISMA will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial. BASIC TRILOGY lost its right front plate after the race. When questioned regarding the tempo he set on GREEN DISPATCH, particularly between the 1600 Metres and the 1200 Metres, Apprentice H T Mo stated that he was able to cross DOYENI after the 1700 Metres and then immediately took hold of his mount in an endeavour to steady the tempo. He said when BASIC TRILOGY improved to be racing outside GREEN DISPATCH after the 1500 Metres, his mount commenced to travel keenly, however, he did not realize that he was setting as fast a tempo as he was at this time. He said after having been made aware of the sectionals of the race after the 1600 Metres, he believed that in retrospect he had erred in not making more of an effort to steady the tempo during this part of the race. Apprentice Mo, in the presence of his allocated trainer, Mr C S Shum, was told that as an apprentice who has had a good deal of experience both in Hong Kong and overseas, he should have been more aware of the tempo that he set on GREEN DISPATCH. He was advised to ensure that he rides his mounts in such a manner so that they are able to finish off their race to the best of their ability. The Stewards will interview S Clipperton, the rider of PRAWN BABA, regarding his riding of that horse from the 600 Metres prior to the Happy Valley racemeeting on Wednesday, 12 July 2017. A veterinary inspection of BASIC TRILOGY immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. The performance of BASIC TRILOGY, which finished tailed out, was considered unacceptable. Before being allowed to race again, BASIC TRILOGY will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination. GENERAL SHERMAN and ROCKETEER were sent for sampling. <12/7/2017 9 July 2017 Sha Tin Racemeeting – Race 9 (787)>The Stewards tonight questioned S Clipperton regarding his riding of PRAWN BABA, particularly approaching and passing the 600 Metres. S Clipperton stated that it had been explained to him that PRAWN BABA is one-paced and benefits from a truly run race. He also stated that he was instructed to ride PRAWN BABA positively in the early stages to take up a prominent position and to ensure that the horse was provided with clear and unimpeded running from straightening. He said the middle stages of the race were run at a good tempo, however, the pace of the race slackened after the 1200 Metres. He said passing the 800 Metres when racing behind GREEN DISPATCH and inside BASIC TRILOGY, PRAWN BABA appeared to come off the bridle and he had to ride it along from the 800 Metres to ensure that PRAWN BABA maintained its position behind GREEN DISPATCH. He said as PRAWN BABA is one-paced, he did not wish to be left racing behind GREEN DISPATCH and BASIC TRILOGY after the 600 Metres as he felt that the horse would have its best chance if he were to make the race into a staying test as he did not believe he could outsprint ROCKETETEER if PRAWN BABA was not able to establish a margin over that horse. He said for these reasons he commenced to ride PRAWN BABA aggressively from the 600 Metres to ensure that the principal chances in the race would have to make ground on PRAWN BABA whilst also ensuring the race did not become a sit and sprint race. He added whilst this resulted in PRAWN BABA having to be ridden along earlier in the race than would normally be the case, he believed that riding the horse in this manner would give it the best opportunity to finish in front of the principal chances in the race. Mr J Size, the trainer of PRAWN BABA, confirmed the instructions given to Jockey Clipperton and stated that, after reviewing the race and all the circumstances of the race, he was satisfied with Jockey Clipperton’s riding of PRAWN BABA.
