Race 3
PREMIER QUEEN: Tracking well. The comments in Mumbai 266 over 1400 metres.
Jockey M.Narredu said that he settled the filly in 4th/5th position as instructed but the pace was very slow and his filly clipped the horse in front of him twice and keeping in mind that he was riding a favourite who was carrying top weight of 61.5 kgs. he did not want to take a chance to ease her up at the 800 metres and fall back, therefore, he pulled her out and she was traveling very well, he did not wish to disappoint her and coming into the straight when he let her go she spurted well and he thought that he would win the race easily but she slowed down in the final stages possibly because the going along the rails was heavy and the winner was moving faster on the outside. He said that PREMIER QUEEN being his first ride of the day, he was unaware of the going along the rails or else he would have definitely kept the filly on the outside. The matter was reported to the Stewards. The Stewards interviewed Trainer Imtiaz A.Sait and Jockey M.Narredu and having heard them and viewing the video recording of the race, the explanation tendered by them was noted.
