Dream Star Handicap-(L) over 1800m on inner track at Turffontein
Jo Soma-trained Happy Landing (8/1), ridden by Muzi Yeni, holds off a flying Royal Arrow (16/1) by a nose
The 4yo gelding is owned by Markus Jooste, and was bred by Danika Stud out of Badger Land-mare Landing Liza (an unraced half sister to Gr1 winner Eldoriza). This is his 4th win from seventeen starts.
Royal Arrow is trained by Geoff Woodruff for Larry Nestadt & partners.
THE STIPENDIARY STEWARDS REPORTED:
a) HAPPY LANDING, the winner (M Yeni). Selected for the taking of specimens for analysis. Trainer J A Soma advised (TK).
b) At approximately the 150 metre mark ROYAL ARROW (AUS) (D David) shifted outwards sharply making severe contact with CAPTAIN SCOTT (J Geroudis) who in turn made contact with RUDI ROCKS (A Marcus) who became unbalanced and stumbled badly losing his position.
An Inquiry will be opened with regards to this incident.
