The Club Veterinary Surgeon reported that LEEDSTHEWAY returned having cast its off hind plate.

 

Trainer P Arumugam was questioned regarding the improved performance of LEEDSTHEWAY (R Narendran) today.  He explained that today, he changed his instructions and instructed the jockey to come from off the pace and give the horse a chance early and come with a strong run in the straight.  This, in his opinion, accounted for the improvement.  Trainer P Arumugam’s explanation was noted and his attention was drawn to the rules regarding “in- and-out” running. (MRA Rule 117(3)).

(MRA Rule 117(3)).

 

At the conclusion of an Inquiry, Jockeys S Saddam and S Hafis both pleaded guilty to a charge under MRA Rule 152(5)(a) for misconduct in that despite arriving on course on time for Race 2, they failed to proceed to the Weighing Room immediately, resulting in a delay to the weighing-out and the start of the race.  Jockeys S Saddam and S Hafis were each fined a sum of RM500/- and advised of their Right of Appeal (4.35 pm).
