Racing Incident Report

PREMIERE was withdrawn on 16.1.20 by order of the Stewards acting on veterinary advice (injury to tongue). Before being allowed to race again, PREMIERE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.
BEAT THE CLOCK began only fairly, shifted out and bumped the hindquarters of MR STUNNING.
Passing the 900 Metres, HOT KING PRAWN and FULL OF BEAUTY raced tight as HOT KING PRAWN maintained its position away from the rail and FULL OF BEAUTY (Z Purton) shifted in. HOT KING PRAWN then raced tight between THANKS FOREVER and FULL OF BEAUTY passing the 800 Metres. Z Purton was advised to ensure that he does not place undue pressure on other runners in races.
Approaching the 300 Metres, WISHFUL THINKER raced tight inside THANKS FOREVER.
When questioned regarding his riding of HOT KING PRAWN in the early stages, K Teetan stated that when discussing the matter with Mr J Size, the trainer of HOT KING PRAWN, it was felt that from the outside barrier THANKS FOREVER would be ridden positively to lead as the horse had been ridden in that manner in the Jockey Club Sprint in November last year. He said as it was anticipated that THANKS FOREVER was the only other speed horse in the race, in the event that THANKS FOREVER attempted to obtain the lead, he should allow that horse to cross HOT KING PRAWN and shift to the outside of THANKS FOREVER. He said when THANKS FOREVER was ridden to clear runners to his inside, he remained racing away from the rail with a view to fulfilling his instructions and obtaining a position to the outside of THANKS FOREVER. He said as he did this FULL OF BEAUTY was allowed to improve its position forward of HOT KING PRAWN and obtained the position outside THANKS FOREVER which required him to take a trail behind FULL OF BEAUTY near the 700 Metres. He added although the race was not run at a quick tempo in the early stages, he felt that remaining racing away from the rail and allowing THANKS FOREVER to cross in accordance with his instructions would allow HOT KING PRAWN the best opportunity to finish off the race, however, with FULL OF BEAUTY obtaining a forward position, this resulted in HOT KING PRAWN racing behind the speed rather than outside the leader. Mr Size confirmed the instructions given to Jockey Teetan and said that he was concerned if THANKS FOREVER was ridden positively as it was previously, HOT KING PRAWN may be left racing behind that horse and he wanted to ensure that HOT KING PRAWN was afforded clear running. He said for this reason he instructed Jockey Teetan to shift to the outside of THANKS FOREVER in the event that that horse was ridden positively. He said after viewing the early sectionals of the race it may have been better had HOT KING PRAWN continued into lead, however, he was satisfied with Jockey Teetan’s riding given the instructions he had received. K Teetan was advised that whilst the Stewards accepted that he was riding HOT KING PRAWN to instructions, given the slow early sectional, in their opinion, he should have allowed HOT KING PRAWN to continue into the lead for longer to test whether the rider of THANKS FOREVER was intent on leading. He was told, given his instructions, the matter would not be taken any further, however, he must always ensure that he rides his mounts having consideration to the circumstances and tempo of the race.
BEAT THE CLOCK and THANKS FOREVER were sent for sampling.
