The Longines Hong Kong Mile is run over 1600m. It was first run in 1991 and was won by Additional Risk.
The first runnings were as the International Bowl and run over the 1400m.
It was a Group 3 in 1994 then Group 2 before it became a Group 1 from 1999 when stepped up to the mile.
Most wins by a Trainer (4): John Moore.
Most wins by a Jockey (3): Olivier Doleuze and Zac Purton.
Good Ba Ba won three straight Longines Hong Kong Miles while Monopolize from Australia scored twice.
Australian horses won three in a row from 1995/1996/1997. After Monopolize, Catalan Opening swept home for legends Darren Beadman and Bart Cummings.
One of the great editions was in 2000. Dual Cox Plate winner Sunline took on the local champ Fairy King Prawn and they cleared out for a soul stirring battle as the “horse of Hong Kong came after the mare of the world”.
