Coetzee stars in CXIR Mile, Sprint Trial double (2) - Turf Race Highlights [03:20]
Race Meeting: 23/11/2008 Sha Tin Hong Kong Group Two - 1200 Metres THE CATHAY PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPRINT TRIAL Felix Coetzee produced a riding masterclass of contrasts to win both the Cathay Pacific International Mile and Sprint Trials and fuel hopes of local glory in the Turf World Championships on 14 December. The South African maestro outfoxed his rivals with a gem of a front-running ride aboard Egyptian Ra in the Mile Trial and had to summon every ounce of strength to force Enthused over the line a nose in front of Sunny Power in the Sprint equivalent. Now facing a five-meeting spell on the sidelines for weighing in light last weekend, Coetzee joked: "The wins have come just in time because I need some money for my holiday!" The fact that Egyptian Ra won the Cathay Pacific International Mile Trial could hardly be described as a shock despite the presence of the Horse of the Year, Good Ba Ba. It was, rather, the manner of victory that caught the breath. Few, if any, could have predicted an all-the-way romp by three and three-quarter lengths from Sight Winner with Good Ba Ba in third. The latter had little hope with the way the race was run - the time of 1 min 33.28 was marginally outside the track record - having been over ten lengths last at halfway. Trained by Tony Cruz, Egyptian Ra has long been known for his propensity to race too freely and burn his energy in the wrong part of the track. On this occasion, however, Coetzee bounced the seven-year-old to the front ...

Race with three Greys at Bonvilston proves popular with first time racegoers! [02:36]
One of the greys, Stoneriggs Merc, wins the race at 16/1 which was nice for several families I heard who placed small bets on it! One had not been racing since Desert Orchid as they had been abroad; but had clearly enthused their children with tales of the great grey! But watch the race through to the end. The staying on odds on favourite Kisha King is pressing him after the last; so Joseph Williams gives him a slap with the whip just to keep him going to the line. Now a small minority of people- often who have little interest in Racing or knowledge of horses worry about the whip. In fact; if you watch this video the horse comes right over to my camera and you can hear the whip and see the action close up. This should alleviate any worries - as you can see there is no way that the air cushioned whip has or can hurt or damage the horse in any way. So some say 'so why have it?' Well because horses are herd animals and use their teeth to communicate. A little nip administered by one horse will move the other horse on; or out of the way. Similarly the jockey uses the whip to keep a horse straight or keep it going or move him out of danger. Thus the stimulus of that tap of the whip has the same effect - the horse knows to keep going! As you can see from the video close up; the whip causes no problems for the horse who has a thick hair coat; but it understands to keep going. After all; while the horse clearly enjoys running; he does not know where the line is. You can see also ...
