2018 HONG KONG VASE

The Hong Kong Jockey Club introduced a third international race to its December programme in 1994, the 2400m Hong Kong International Vase.

Red Bishop, the topclass French-trained galloper, took the inaugural prize – the first of 10 winners so far from that nation, with the latest being the 2014 victor, Flintshire.

The Vase was upped to international Group 2 level for the 1996 renewal won by Luso, who became the first two-time winner when he returned successfully 12 months later.

In 1999, in line with the renamed Hong Kong Cup and Hong Kong Mile, and the newly-initiated Hong Kong Sprint, the International Vase was renamed the Hong Kong Vase.

A year later it was upgraded to Group 1 status and the Coronation Cup winner Daliapour arrived to take the spoils.

Among the winners of this prestigious contest are the outstanding English race mare Ouija Board, English St Leger hero Mastery, popular globe-trotter Red Cadeaux, Dunaden, who in 2011 became the first Melbourne Cup winner to lift the Vase, and Ireland’s Highland Reel, the horse that gave his trainer Aidan O’Brien a first Hong Kong success in 2015 before the bay finished his career with a second victory in this race in 2017.

Japan has won with Stay Gold and Satono Crown, the latter surging late to deny Highland Reel in the 2016 edition.

LONGINES entered into a partnership with the Hong Kong Jockey Club ahead of the 2012 LONGINES Hong Kong International Races and the race currently carries a purse of HK$20 million. It was ranked equal 40th in the World’s Top 100 G1 Races in 2017.

GR1 LONGINES HONG KONG SPRINT

2018 HONG KONG SPRINT

The Hong Kong Jockey Club’s strategy for an elite international end-of-year race day at Sha Tin Racecourse had almost reached its aim by 1999.

That year saw the fourth and final international race added to the event, the Hong Kong Sprint, and Fairy King Prawn proved a fittingly top-class first winner.

Initially staged as a Listed race, the Hong Kong Sprint attained Group 3 status in 2000 and became a Group 2 one year later.

In 2002, the Sprint became the last of the HKIR features to attain Group 1 status, so establishing the four-race Group 1 format we know today.

The race has a most illustrious roll of honour, featuring superstars Silent Witness and Sacred Kingdom from Hong Kong and Japan’s greatest sprinter, the exceptional Lord Kanaloa.

Each of that trio won the race twice, as did the Australian speedster Falvelon.

Mr Stunning brought Hong Kong a 14th win in this race last year. 

The race was ranked equal 44th in the World’s Top 100 G1 races in 2017. Inaugurated as a straight 1000m contest, the race distance was upped to 1200m in 2006. LONGINES first sponsored the race in 2012 and the prize money is increased to HK$20 million in 2018.

GR1 LONGINES HONG KONG MILE

140x190xHong-Kong-Mile-Trophy.png.pagespeed.ic.xWA6AW035n

2018 HONG KONG MILE

In 2017, Hong Kong’s Horse of the Year Beauty Generation became the latest in a line of brilliant victors that have, in the space of only a quarter of a century, established the LONGINES Hong Kong Mile as one of the world’s elite mile contests.

The classy gelding joined such mile luminaries as Maurice, Able Friend, Good Ba Ba, Ambitious Dragon, Eishin Preston and Sunline in winning what is now a lucrative HK$25 million race.

The race was inaugurated in 1991 to mark Hong Kong’s staging of that year’s Asian Racing Conference and so has the distinction of being the second of Hong Kong’s international races.

However, it was not known as the Hong Kong Mile at that time; today’s Hong Kong Mile in fact started out as the Hong Kong Invitation Bowl, staged over 1400m.

Ireland’s Additional Risk won that first edition for trainer Dermot Weld and jockey Mick Kinane. In 1994, the year that Soviet Line prevailed for UK trainer Sir Michael Stoute, the race attained international Group 3 status.

The race was then upgraded to a Group 2 in 1995 when Monopolize claimed the first of his two victories for Australian handler Grahame Begg.

The John Hills-trained Docksider won the race the first time that it was held in its now familiar guise, the Hong Kong Mile, in 1999. It was upgraded to International Group 1 status when New Zealand super mare Sunline took the race in 2000.

The outstanding champion Good Ba Ba has the distinction of being the only horse to have won this or any other HKIR contest three times.

The great miler prevailed in 2007, 2008 and 2009. The race was ranked equal 81st in the World’s Top 100 G1 Races in 2017.

GR1 LONGINES HONG KONG CUP

hkcup_5n4r.png

2018 HONG KONG CUP

The LONGINES Hong Kong Cup, now the jurisdiction’s richest race, is the cornerstone of the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races.

The 2000-metre event is the original – the race that launched what is nowadays Hong Kong’s biggest international sporting event and one of the world’s most prestigious horse racing occasions.

The Cup has a storied history.

Champions from across the globe have their names etched on the honour roll: Fantastic Light, Falbrav, Alexander Goldrun, Vengeance Of Rain, Pride, Ramonti, Vision D’Etat and Snow Fairy stand out.

The imperious win of Maurice in 2016, the Japanese stallion’s third G1 victory at Sha Tin in 12 months, followed another success for the Land of the Rising Sun in 2015, when Yutaka Take steered A Shin Hikari to a stunning front-running victory.

Last year, Time Warp added his name to the list of LONGINES Hong Kong Cup victors, leading from pillar to post under Champion Jockey Zac Purton.

Back in January, 1988, the race’s initial incarnation took place at Sha Tin Racecourse: an 1800m race open to raiders from Singapore and Malaysia and billed as the Hong Kong Invitation Cup.

Flying Dancer prevailed for leading local trainer Brian Kan and jockey Bartie Leisher. A year later, Australian and New Zealand horses were added to the list of invitees, and 1989 saw two editions as the event shifted from a January date to its now firmly-established December slot in the international calendar.

The only exception since then came when the 1992 races were postponed until April 1993 because of an equine virus, which forced the temporary suspension of racing in Hong Kong.

In December 1993, the race attained international Group 3 status, was opened to all-comers and was renamed the Hong Kong International Cup. The following year, the Cup was upgraded to international Group 2 status.

The big breakthrough came in 1999 when the Hong Kong International Cup was renamed the Hong Kong Cup and became the first Hong Kong race to be designated an international Group 1.

The race distance was extended to 2000 metres and France’s Jim And Tonic triumphed. The race was ranked equal 40th in the World’s Top 100 G1 Races in 2017.

The only two-time winner of the race is Hong Kong’s favourite grey, the diminutive and tough California Memory, who defeated world-class rivals to triumph in 2011 and 2012 for trainer Tony Cruz, the only man to have both ridden (Colonial Chief, January 1989) and trained winners of the race. He achieved success again last year with Time Warp.

LONGINES entered a partnership with the Hong Kong Jockey Club ahead of the 2012 LONGINES Hong Kong International Races and the total prize money of the race has been increased to HK$28 million.

Small query at the trip but the horse is flying and should get a strong speed to suit and finish all over the top of them.

KAIPAKI

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

WAS $2.40 WENT TEXT TO SUBSCRIBERS

NOW: $2.10

Went straight to midweek at Sandown (Hillside) in metro grade & was unwanted in betting blowing from 25/1 to 40/1. However the market got it all wrong!

The Shamexpress colt settled back 10/10 over the unsuitable 1000m from barrier 10 & at the 600m appeared to be going nowhere when he was 7.1L off the lead. Despite the huge start & racing greenly in the straight the colt ran on terrifically well clocking the fastest 600/400/200m splits in the race with a last 600m time 4.1L faster than the class average.

He ran a slashing 32.22 for the last 600m to be beaten just a short neck by the talented Ben Hercules of Lindsay Park.

That horse ran respectable behind Blue Diamond winner Written By in the Blue Diamond Prelude, then after his Sandown win he was just 2.2L 4th in the Rosebud Prelude at Randwick, won by the lovely colt & highly rated Plague Stone. So the form from Kaipaki’s debut was brilliant.

2nd up he was thrown right in the deep in going to a 1200 open 2yo handicap at Caulfield & having to lug 58kg on a min of 54.5kg. Again he draw the extreme outside 9/9 & again settled stone motherless last in the run. Again he raced very greenly & didn’t handle the Caulfield corner one bit.

Up front of the race the undefeated (3/3) Brutal put 5L on the field and absolutely walked in. Once the bird had flown Symons flicked the switch off & eased Kaipaki right down to a canter and he crossed the post. Fair to say he was all a bit new & green to be tackling horses of Brutals caliber at just start 2.

He was immediately tipped out to be given time to mature & now steps out from all reports as a much more furnished 3yo. He’s drawn poorly again in 7 of 9. But the expectation is that he’ll settle between midfield & 3/4’s and not snag right back to last this time.

It’s a terrible quality maiden & Kaipaki gets in beautiful at the weights with just 57kg, 2 above the minimum.

The #8 Emmy Awards is the only possible danger. It’s on debut for the Busutin / Young stable & hasn’t been sighted in public…..but she’ll have to be pretty quality to beat Kaipaki.

Ellerton & Zahra have bought the colt he for this lowly 1100m maiden for in Zahra’s words a “soft kill” to iron out bad habits & teach him to race more tractable. He’ll just been winning. Has panels on all opposition.

Heavily backed and bolted in first up, eased right down late to still score by 2.8L. Looks to have come back in terrific order & is a great price here. Should take some beating.

4 seconds from 5 career starts but has been plagued by niggling injuries his whole career.

Hasn’t been seen on track for 358 days that’s nearly a whole year & comes here without official trial against his name.

Without knowing how fit he is it’s hard to get a real gauge on his but in this pathetic 6 horse field if he’s 65% fit he’ll finally break his duck. Despite being a 5 horse maiden the stable have always had an opinion of him in fact he’s only run once in maiden grade before this. He’s run in 3 no metro win races at Ascot for 2 seconds & a 5th, 1 maiden & 1 $60,000 2yo open handicap where he was 2nd as well.

Class will get him home as I’m sure he’ll be fighting fresh to charge to victory over the 1000m.
