Kimberley False Start – No Further Action

Flamingo Park - Third race - 25 July 2016

National Horseracing AuthorityThe National Horseracing Authority confirms that an inquiry was held at its offices on 7 September 2016, into the reasons why Jockey’s J P van der Merwe (RAVING JEWEL), C Zackey (MONTE CARLO PLAYER), D L Habib (BAY OF ROCHELLE), R Munger (ROCK BURNER), E Pheiffer (SEVENTH HEIRESS), M Yeni (JULIE), C Storey (BEACH BIRD) and Apprentice’s C Murray (MATHS MAJOR) and C Ngcobo (SWITCHED ON), failed to comply with a reasonable instruction from a licensed official following a false start called in Race 3 run at the Flamingo Park Racecourse on Monday 25 July 2016.

The Board, after viewing the patrol films of the race and hearing all the evidence and also taking into account that there was a strong wind blowing and an electric lightning storm in close proximity when the start was effected, which accounted for the Riders being unable to hear the siren when the false start was called, ruled that no further action be taken.
