**********************

RE : ENQUIRY INTO THE RUNNING AND RIDING OF “RISHAB’S PET (A.IMRAN KHAN) IN RACE NO.69 – THE DIRECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE TROPHY RUN ON 17TH DECEMBER, 2017 :

 

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held on 4th January, 2018 interviewed Trainer Faisal A.Abbas and Jockey A.Imran Khan, in the above connection and having heard them and having viewed the video recording of the race in question as also Jockey A.Imran Khan’s winning ride during the current Mumbai Meeting 2017/18 i.e. Race No.30, the Stewards were not satisfied with the explanation tendered by Jockey A.Imran Khan. However, they decided to give him the benefit of the doubt for “unsatisfactory riding” and held him guilty of incompetent riding. In that, the Stewards held the view that he could have been more vigorous in his riding effort in the straight and also did not use the whip in his usual style nor did he change his whip hand when the horse hung out by his own admission. Trainer Faisal A.Abbas also felt that the Jockey could have given one or two cracks in forehand position. The Stewards also considered Jockey A.Imran Khan’s clean record and taking an overall view, decided to suspend his Jockey’s licence for two Race Days i.e. w.e.f. 18th January, 2018 to 21st January, 2018 (both days inclusive) for incompetent riding (permitted to ride work/mock race).

RE : ENQUIRY INTO THE BELOW EXPECTATION PERFORMANCE OF “TENERIFE” (P.TREVOR, DR.8) (FAILED FAVOURITE) IN RACE NO.12 – THE EXCALIBUR BY NAHAR TROPHY (1200 METRES) - RUN ON 24TH NOVEMBER, 2017:

 

The Stipendiary Stewards reported that they had questioned Trainer S.K.Sunderji and Jockey P.Trevor in the above connection. Trainer S.K.Sunderji stated that this was only the second run of the filly and her first run under lights therefore she may not have relished it.

 

Jockey P.Trevor said that the filly was running green and a bit erratic he was just able to control her and keep her straight and therefore he could not rider her out and he had reported the same to the Stipes after the race.

 

Having heard the submissions made and having viewed the video recording of the race, the explanation tendered by the Trainer and Jockey has been noted for future reference.

***********************

RE : JOCKEY Y.S.SRINATH FAILING TO FULFIL HIS RIDING ENGAGEMENTS ON 14TH DECEMBER, 2017 :

The Stipendiary Stewards reported that they had questioned Jockey Y.S.Srinath in the above connection and having heard him they were not satisfied with the explanation tendered by him and felt that it was very irresponsible on his part not to have fulfilled his riding engagements thus putting the burden on the Owners/Trainers to find a suitable replacement at the last moment. Therefore, they fined him a sum of Rs.10,000/- and warned him to be more careful in the future.

***********************

RE : ENQUIRY INTO THE RUNNING AND RIDING OF “ADELE” (APP.H.ZEESHAN, DR.5) IN RACE NO.73 – THE SNOW DEW PLATE (1000 METRES) - RUN ON 22ND DECEMBER, 2017:

The Stipendiary Stewards reported that they had initiated an enquiry into the above matter.

 

Having considered the written submissions of Trainer Nazak Chenoy as also the submissions made by App.H.Zeeshan and his Master, Trainer Shazaan Shah and having viewed the video recording of the race in question as also App.H.Zeeshan’s two winning rides on SHAMWARI (Race No.11) and MILWALKEE (Race No.62), the Stipendiary Stewards were of the opinion that there was no mala-fide intent in the riding of App.H.Zeeshan. However, keeping in mind his inexperience, he has been directed to practice more on the Horse-Stimulator and improve his riding skills.
