REENQUIRY INTO THE RUNNING AND RIDING OF “ENCHANTED”  (DASHRATH SINGH, DR.3) IN RACE NO. 305 – THE RAJCOOMAR GUJADHUR MEMORIAL TROPHY (DIV.II) (1000 METRES) RUN ON 28TH APRIL, 2018

 

The Stipendiary Stewards reported that they had questioned Trainer M.Narredu and Jockey Dashrath Singh in the above connection.

 

When questioned, Jockey Dashrath Singh said that his instructions were that if he was comfortable then he should sit well up or else let the filly get into her stride, do not put pressure on her, gradually improve and do his best. Trainer M.Narredu confirmed the instructions.

 

The video recording of Race No.305 was viewed and when asked for his observation, Trainer M.Narredu said that he felt that the Jockey started riding out a bit late in the straight, however, the Jockey is the best judge and he has no grievance with his riding since the winner came from way behind to beat his filly.

 

Jockey Dashrath Singh said that he felt that ENCHANTED was a light filly and was racing in a week’s time, hence he had to support and ride her and she was weakening towards the end.

 

Having heard the submissions made by the Trainer and Jockey and having viewed the video recording of the race, the Stipendiary Stewards felt that the Jockey had ridden an ill-judged/injudicious race, especially on an On Money favourite, due to which he may have lost the first place making the matter serious, hence are reporting the matter to the Stewards for such action as they deem fit.

 

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held on 26th July, 2018 interviewed Trainer M.Narredu and Jockey Dashrath Singh in the above connection and having heard them and having viewed the video recording of Race No.305 as also the filly’s previous run i.e. Race No.199, the Stewards decided to give Jockey Dashrath Singh the benefit of the doubt. However, he was cautioned him for the future.
