KUCHING: Roslan Bujang was in top form on Sunday, riding four winners out of five races – and the reason he did not make it five-out-of-five was that he had no engagement in Race One.
The champion jockey scored his first winner hands down on Dash For Cash in Race 2 (Class 4 – 1000M) to spark a rout that was to produce three more winners in a row.
Roslan had an armchair ride on the nine-year-old who cantered home by a street from Good Fortune (Maruf Wahab) with Elturius (Azizi Jasmi) third, a distance further back.
Dash For Cash paid RM11.
Roslan followed up with another big margin win in Race 3 (Class 3 – 1000M).
In a queue-up of newcomers, he had an easy ride on four-year-old Monolita who strolled to the finish by a street from stablemate Queen Zoffany (Jasmi Kamar) with Dream Catcher II (Kamar Yaman) third, a distance further back.
Monolita paid RM12.
Roslan’s two other winners in his perfect four-race winning sequence were Storm Raider in Race 4 (Class 2 – 1000M) and Bukan Lawan Nya in Race Five (Class 1 – 1000M).
The top jockey had the race won a long way out on Storm Raider. Never in any danger, the six-year-old cantered home 9 lengths clear of Datang Lagi (Mazlan Bujang) with Bojeng (Hamid Elli) third, 9 lengths further adrift.
Storm Raider paid RM9.
Roslan put the icing on the cake with one more big margin win on Bukan Lawan Nya.
The seven-year-old gave the leading jockey a clean sweep by bouncing back from a patchy season to score an easy eight-length victory from stablemate Empila Boy (Mazlan Bujang) with Zorro (Hamid Elli) third, 6 lengths further back.
Bukan Lawan Nya paid RM11.
All of Roslan’s four winners are trained by Tamizi Putit and owned by Beraya Stable.
Class 5 in Race One over 1000M went to Precious Moment (Hamid Elli) by a distance from Big Chief (Jasmi Kamar) with Dragon Master (Azizi Jasmi) third, 7 lengths further back.
The winner, trained by Lee Moi Fong and owned Sara Stable, paid RM14.
The going was good.
