ADDITIONAL REPORTS:

 

RE: ENQUIRY INTO THE RIDING OF JOCKEY K.NAZIL ON “TASMAN” IN RACE NO.161 – THE F.K.VAKIL TROPHY  RUN ON 11TH MARCH, 2021 – THE TRAINER HAD LODGED A COMPLAINT THAT THE JOCKEY HAD NOT FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS:

 

The Stipendiary Stewards reported that they had questioned Trainer Sanjay Kolse and Jockey K.Nazil in the above connection. Trainer Sanjay Kolse said that he had instructed the Jockey to sit in 4th/5th position and to do his best. Jockey K.Nazil confirmed the instructions and added that his mount jumped out smartly and was keen and he felt that he would have ended up in the front bunch, so he settled the horse and thereafter brought him out and did his best in the straight. He added that he had also used the whip from the right. To a specific question, he said that the horse jumped out smartly and he settled his mount but the field from the outside covered him and he dropped back and could not hold his position.

 

The video recording of the race was viewed and it was pointed out to Jockey K.Nazil that his statement that he was covered up by the field from the outside was not evident on the video recording. Further, he was on the inside of IN CONTENTION (P.Trevor) and there was sufficient room to hold his position along the rails but he chose to drop out and come around IN CONTENTION for no apparent reason, to which he had no explanation. Also, it was pointed out to him that he had made no effort to follow the instructions thereby placing his horse at a disadvantage.

 

Having heard the submissions made and viewing the video recording of the race, the Stipendiary Stewards were not satisfied with the explanation tendered by Jockey K.Nazil and decided to suspend  his Jockey’s licence for two race days i.e. from 4th April, 2021 to 11th April, 2021 (both days inclusive) for failing to follow the riding instructions.

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

RE: ENQUIRY INTO THE CHANGE IN THE PATTERN OF RUNNING OF “SOCRATES” (P.S.CHOUHAN) IN RACE NO.149 – THE R.R.BYRAMJI TROPHY RUN ON 7TH MARCH, 2021 :

 

The Stipendiary Stewards reported that they had questioned Trainer P.Shroff in the above connection. It was pointed out to him that SOCRATES won earlier over 2000 metres going to the front whereas in the race in question he was ridden from behind. Tr.P.Shroff said that he would like to race this horse from behind. He said that the horse had returned unsound after this race and the X-ray taken at the Equine Hospital showed a slight fracture in his splint bone and possibly he did not gallop in this race as he felt his leg. He reiterated that he wants to race him from behind next time also. He said that his mock race with DADDY’S PRIDE is his best and his win over 2000 metres where he beat CHANCELLOR  was the slowest 2000 metres race during the Pune Meeting.

 

The explanation tendered by Trainer P.Shroff was noted.
