Former star Australian sprinter Classique Legend has come under fire from Hong Kong stewards who will require the horse to trial and undergo a veterinary inspection prior to racing again.

Classique Legend opened as the $1.75 favourite with Sportsbet for the G1 Hong Kong Sprint on Sunday but was a notable drifter before jumping at $3.80 and the market told the story, the horse was slow into stride and finished at rear of the field (11th) with a bit of interference.

The run caught the eye of stewards who thought it was ‘unacceptable’ and have prompted trainer Caspar Fownes the horse must trial satisfactory before racing again.

“He (Ho) said after being awkwardly placed behind Jolly Banner near the 900 Metres, Classique Legend then came off the bridle and did not travel comfortably for the remainder of the race,” the report noted.

“He added Classique Legend did not quicken when placed under pressure and then failed to finish off the race.

“A veterinary inspection of Classique Legend immediately following the race did not show any significant findings. The performance of Classique Legend, a favoured runner in today’s race, was considered unacceptable.

“Before being allowed to race again, Classique Legend will be required to perform to the satisfaction of the Stewards in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.”
