Golden Sixty triumphed in an epic HK$20 million BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) at Sha Tin today (Sunday, 22 March) to complete a brilliant whitewash of the Four-Year-Old Classic Series.
Golden Sixty has claimed a last-stride win in the Hong Kong Derby to complete the Four-Year-Old triple crown at Sha Tin.
South American imports haven’t had the impact in Hong Kong that arrivals from Australasia and Europe have had, but this Sunday (22 March) at Sha Tin, the Danny Shum-trained Butterfield will attempt to raise the profile with victory in the HK$20 million BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m).
Francis Lui has the strongest hand of any trainer heading into Sunday’s (22 March) HK$20 million BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) but that doesn’t mean he’s counting his chickens yet.
John Size knows what it takes to win the BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) and this Sunday (22 March) Champion’s Way is looking to become the Australian’s fourth winner of the HK$20 million feature.
Vincent Ho shifts his weight to his left foot – the fingers of his right hand flick the outside seam of his thigh and for but a fleeting instant his steady lo-fi monotone stalls, intruded upon by what appears to be a prickling of self-consciousness.
Savvy Nine was not John Moore’s idea of what his final BMW Hong Kong Derby runner would look like but the trainer is hopeful that his useful European import will outrun his rating and “pick up a cheque” in Sunday’s (22 March) HK$20 million feature.
Francis Lui was satisfied with Golden Sixty and More Than This after his two leading BMW Hong Kong Derby contenders worked at Sha Tin Racecourse on Tuesday (17 March) morning.
One of Hong Kong’s biggest races each year is the BMW Hong Kong Derby run at Sha Tin on Sunday.
Vincent Ho put BMW Hong Kong Derby standout Golden Sixty through a gallop at Sha Tin this morning (Friday, 13 March) but the gun rider’s immediate focus rests upon this weekend’s action, particularly the next step in Preciousship’s attempted ascent to the higher grades.
Hong Kong’s star four-year-old Golden Sixty heads 14 selected runners for the HK$20 million BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) at Sha Tin Racecourse on Sunday, 22 March.
Zac Purton reached a milestone with his 1100th Hong Kong win at Sha Tin at the weekend and the champion jockey is hoping to add to his tally from a full book of rides at Happy Valley on Wednesday night (11 March).
The Hong Kong Jockey Club purchased three colts at the recent Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale in Australia for a total outlay of AU$1,010,000 (approx. HK$5.173 million).
Golden Sixty has won the Hong Kong Classic Cup in his bid for a clean sweep of the four-year-old series.
