  1. George says:

    Then why was no objection called in the race if he caused interference to the 2nd place runner? But then he gets a suspension

    1. Editor says:

      From the stipes report:
      SPIRIT FESTIVAL (R Khathi) was tightened on the inside running rail for a number of strides and was forced to ease when HURRICANE SILVA (B Fayd’Herbe) shifted in at the 150m. Jockey R Khathi called for a race review and after reviewing the patrol films he took no further action. Jockey B Fayd’Herbe appeared before the Board regarding this incident. An Inquiry will be opened.

  2. Brian says:

    Exactly, many suspensions for interference. Is why was nothing done on course and why was the jockey not advised properly.

    If it was good enough for a suspension the result should have been overturned there and then

    Another instance where punters get stiffed again

  3. Bob Kistnasamy says:

    I backed the second horse and was quite exasperated when no objection was lodged.

    From the head-on, there was clear interference. Well what else is new in the sport of kings in SA.
