As such, the gelding was certified unfit to race and was withdrawn on Veterinary grounds. The Trainer is required to obtain a fitness certificate for the gelding from the Club’s V.O. before next accepting with him to race.

 

At the start, ART O WAR (Raghuveer Singh, dr. 4) jumped inwards and made contact with FINE TUNE (App. H. Zeeshan, dr. 3).

An objection was lodged by App. M. Ayyar, the rider of WIND CRAFT (Placed Second) against FINE TUNE (App. H. Zeeshan, Placed First). The reason being, in the last 150 metres FINE TUNE bumped his mount and pushed him at about 100 metres and also just before the winning post despite which his mount was full of running towards the end and this had cost him a certain race.

 

After considering the submissions made by App. M. Ayyar and App. H. Zeeshan who were accompanied by their Trainers, Mr. Sangramsinh N. Joshi and Mr. Mansoor Shah respectively, in conjunction with that of the Stipendiary Stewards and relying on their judgment, the Stewards upheld the objection and revised the order of placing of the above race as under:-

 

WIND CRAFT                      -               FIRST;                                  MALAVIKA                                 -               THIRD;

FINE TUNE                          -               SECOND;                             ARABIAN STORM                  -               FOURTH

 

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held after the last race, interviewed App. H. Zeeshan who was accompanied by his Master, Trainer Shazaan Shah, for careless riding on his mount FINE TUNE and having heard him/his Master and having viewed the video recording of the race, the Stewards were not satisfied with the explanation tendered by App. H. Zeeshan and decided to suspend his Apprentice Jockey’s license for 2 race days for careless riding on FINE TUNE.  It was noted that Mr. H. Zeeshan’s Apprentice Jockey’s license already stands suspended up to 4th August, 2018 for an earlier offence on HUDSON. Therefore, the Stewards decided that should he apply for an Apprentice Jockey’s license for the Season 2018/19, the same will be granted to him, however, his license shall stand further suspended w.e.f. 5th August, 2018 to 11th August, 2018 for careless riding on FINE TUNE (permitted to ride work/mock race). Further, he was warned to be more careful in the future.

At the start, ADVANCE TO CONTACT (S. G. Prasad, dr. 11) jumped out awkwardly inwards, at the same time PARADISE (Kunal Bunde, dr. 9) jumped outwards due to which STAR ACE (Anil Baandal, dr. 10) drawn between them was tightened for room and had to be steadied.

 

At the start, MASTER SERGEANT (App. Vishal N. Bunde, dr. 5) jumped inwards and made contact with AEOLUS MAXIMUS (Dashrath Singh, dr. 4).
